1. "Meanwhile ..." by Jennifer Sherburn
8:30 p.m. June 5-8, 13-15. $20 in advance, $30 at the door. Rogge Ranch House, 3506 Rogge Lane. jennifersherburn.com.
Sherburn, the award-winning director of modern dance series "11:11" and last summer’s performance of "11:11:2018: Drive In" stages a new work this month. You won't have seen anything quite like "Meanwhile..." which combines her contemporary choreography with an original score by Marvel alum William West to explore the colorful characters of comics and graphic novels. At certain points, performers will be suspended to create fantastical movement, appearing to exist in a world just out of reach from reality.
2. Driftwood Dinner Party
7 to 9:30 p.m. June 5. $75. Salt Lick Cellars, 18300 Farm to Market Road. 1826, Driftwood. facebook.com/events/333289244046317.
Modern Texas cuisine isn't easy to define with a few simple descriptors. Chefs Devin Glenn of Salt Lick Cellars and Andrew Stiver of Vista Brewing will present their own takes on what it means to eat like a Texan with four courses that include ingredients sourced from Vista's on-site farm. Each course is also paired with some of the Hill Country brewery's best beers. Enjoy courses like the smoked and beer-braised beef short rib on the Salt Lick Cellars patio.
3. High Noon Talk: Texas From Above
12 p.m. June 5. Free. 1800 Congress Ave. thestoryoftexas.com.
For this month's casual lunchtime lecture, Texas From Above co-curator Jay B. Sauceda will talk about how he came to work on the massive photography project. He piloted a Cessna with a handful of cameras in the cockpit and a lot of classic country music playing in his headset — and his work resulted in 44,000 images covering thousands of miles of Texas landscape. During the High Noon Talk, Sauceda will also share his favorite images from the flight.
4. Austin's Global Running Day
6 to 9 p.m. June 5. Free. Austin American-Statesman, 305 S. Congress Ave. eventbrite.com/e/austins-global-running-day-tickets-61791406761.
Global Running Day is a day for people around the world to celebrate the joys of running. Participation is easy; all you have to do is get moving. But if you want to make it a little more official, participate in a social run or walk as set up by the Statesman Cap 10K, the Austin Marathon and the 3M Half Marathon, which have organized two routes that are variable in distance but begin and end in the American-Statesman's west parking lot.
