It's a sleepy week on the food events front. And we imagine that's because everyone is gearing up for Fourth of July with beer, barbecue, and live music. Speaking of, those also happen to be a few of the things going on this week. Go figure.

America the Beer-tiful Party at Texas Ale Project
Texas Ale Project is celebrating the Fourth of July at the brewery with its annual patriotic-themed party. Event highlights include live music by the Driftin’ Outlaw Band, barbecue by the Texas Beer Chef, fun games (photo scavenger hunt, cornhole, Jenga), and a watermelon keg. And of course, Texas Ale Project booze galore. Admission is free, and the fun starts at noon.

Picnic Party at the Rustic
Head to Uptown to enjoy live music by pop/folk sibling trio Castro, featuring American Idol alumni Jason and Michael Castro, and their sister, Jackie. The free live music begins with D and Chi, the Dallas native acoustic duo, from 4-6 pm. Then the Castros will take the stage and keep the party going until 9 pm. And would it even be a Dallas summer weekend without enjoying a Rustic frozen margarita topped with an adult popsicle?

Fourth of July Celebration at Ida Claire
Ida Claire is serving up some cheers-worthy drink specials, including $3 canned beer, $4 single hurricanes, and $15 hurricane towers, which are perfect for sharing between three-to-five people. To add to the festive atmosphere, Dallas indie-pop band The Rebellion will play from 8 to 11 pm and guests can also watch the fireworks at Kaboom Town from the patio. Specials run through the Fourth of July.
