Dining

The Craft Series at the Driskill. The beer dinner series at the Driskill is one of the most affordable — and most delicious — in town. This month, the Georgetown brewery Rentsch Brewery is pairing some of its best beers with four courses from the 1886 Cafe & Bakery culinary team. Expect pairings such as the Weizenbock with mole-rubbed grilled flank steak. Reserve your spot ahead of time, but you won’t pay until after the dinner. 6 to 9 p.m. Feb. 11. $45. 604 Brazos St. eventbrite.com/e/the-craft-series-at-1886-tickets-54957205481?

Swift’s Attic’s Big-Ass Burger Night. There’s nothing like staying up late to chow down on an enormous burger in downtown Austin — especially on a Monday night. Congress Avenue restaurant Swift’s Attic has a new round of burger specials through Feb. 18. Each one is a different, unusual hamburger, such as the Pho-Sho with a five-spice beef patty. Although they aren't served until 9 p.m., get to Swift's Attic to reserve these limited meaty meals. $10. 315 Congress Ave. facebook.com/events/2760996824124919
