Although Austin’s core often gets all the credit for culinary innovation and skill, some outlying cities are starting to step up their dining scenes, too, including Round Rock. The Taste of Round Rock event, which showcases area restaurants and caterers, returns this year with different menu items from old favorites and new spots alike.

Some of the participating places are Jack Allen’s Kitchen, Greenhouse Craft Food and Flix Brewhouse. There will also be a cash bar selling beer and wine.

Details: 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday. $30. Round Rock Sports Center, 2400 Chisholm Trail, Round Rock.
