Martini Monday at Drink.Well. Thought you were going to start your week with a quiet night in? Think again.

For the month of June, there will be three featured martini recipes featuring Grey Goose Vodka and Oxley Gin. Each cocktail is just $10 all night. The martinis include the Classic Martini, the Gypsy Queen and the Vesper Martini. 4 p.m. June 18. Free. 207 E. 53rd St.


“Of Warp and Weft.” Despite the vastly different mediums of Austin-based artists Caprice Pierucci and Charles Heppner, her elegant carved wood sculptures and his photographs of delicate cheesecloth find an open dialogue of harmony, form and composition. The layers and undulating rhythms in her sculptures speak of mortality, while his “Sacred Fabric” work is a result of his belief in the sanctity of the cosmos. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday through July 21. Davis Gallery, 837 W. Twelfth St. 512-477-4929,

Coming up

Haley Heynderickx at Cactus Cafe. Portland, Ore., has consistently produced noteworthy indie acts for some time now, and Heynderickx (don’t try to spell it without a program) is the latest from the Rose City to attract nationwide attention. Her full-length debut “I Need to Start a Garden,” issued last fall, has drawn widespread critical acclaim for its intriguing folk-based songs that push traditional structures in inventive directions. $12-$15. 8:30 p.m. June 26. 2247 Guadalupe St. — Peter Blackstock

The Wine Down. The annual summer music series at the downtown 3Ten venue returns in June with a happy hour performance by alternative R&B artist Mélat. As always, there will be a pop-up from one of the stores in the Second Street District and bites from one of the area restaurants — this time, the boutique Luxe Apothetique and Mama Fu’s Asian House. The Wine Down explores the culture of the Second Street District the last Wednesday of every month through Sept. 26. 5 to 8 p.m. June 27. Free. 310 W. Second St.

“Ruthless” at the City Theatre. In this over-the-top musical comedy from the City Theatre, it’s not just an 8-year-old kid who wants to become a theater star, playing Pippi Longstocking in her third-grade play — so does her mom. When her adoptive mom discovers her birth mother was a famous actress, she decides she should become the Broadway diva she was always meant to be. But can they both be stars? 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, 3 p.m. Sunday through July 8. $15-$35. 3823 Airport Blvd. 512-524-2870,
