Tiki Tuesdays at Hotel San Jose. Summer means the return of one seasonal series to the South Congress hotel. Swing by the lounge every Tuesday in June, July and August for a cold drink (did someone say frosé?), chips and guacamole, and bask in the glorious surf tunes of Austin’s favorite surf and psych band the Avocados. You’ll have all summer to catch them playing their smash hit, “Guacamole.” The music runs from 7 to 9 p.m., though the event starts at 5 p.m. Tuesdays. Free. 1316 S. Congress Ave.


Defining Women Dinner at Olamaie. This dinner series celebrates the women of Southern food. Each week, the top-rated restaurant takes inspiration for the feast from a different seminal, female-written cookbook and highlights a local farm to create a four-course menu with beverage pairings. Olamaie was built as an homage to five generations of Southern women, and the Tuesday night dinner series is an extension of that. Reserve your seat on the restaurant website. 5 to 10 p.m. Aug. 27. $65. 1610 San Antonio St.

America Martin at Wally Workman Gallery. Martin is inspired by form and figure as depicted by the impressionists and modernists of the early 20th century.

Represented across the county and internationally collected, Martin continues to impress audiences with her bold work. This is her seventh solo show with the Austin gallery. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday, noon to 4 p.m. Sunday through Sept. 1. 512-472-7428,
