Hopefully not buried among the many things Avid Bookshop has going on tomorrow (Saturday, Apr. 29) for Independent Bookstore Day—which include local art for sale, free Ike & Jane doughnuts at the Prince Avenue location, free Independent Baking Co. pastries at the Five Points location, face painting, sidewalk chalk and poetry readings—is a meet-and-greet and book signing with Mary Kay Andrews for her brand-new The Beach House Cookbook. That's at the Prince Avid, starting at 11 a.m. and going until noon. Andrews is better known for her novels, but she also likes to cook—hence, the book.
Athens-based coffee roaster Jittery Joe's has announced it will continue its series of collaborations with local musicians with Up All Night, a blend created in partnership with local jam legends Widespread Panic.
For tax day tomorrow (Apr. 18), pizza chain Hungry Howie’s, on Baxter, is offering a medium one-topping pizza for a mere 15 cents if you buy a large one-topping pizza at regular menu price (promo code TAXDAY) online.
Kristie Middleton, senior director of food policy for the Humane Society of the United States and author of MeatLess: Transform the Way you Eat and Live—One Meal at a Time, will be signing her book at Avid on Prince at 6:30 p.m. tomorrow (still Apr. 18). Middleton isn't trying to get people to commit to vegetarianism immediately. Rather, her book tries to encourage people to incorporate vegetable-based meals into their diets more often. Also: Paul McCartney liked it.
Thursday, Apr. 20 from 8–11 p.m., Heirloom Cafe will host a pop-up cocktail event with T Silva from Hi-Lo to benefit the Boybutante AIDS foundation (which gets 10 percent of sales for the day). Bar snacks by Heirloom chef Joel Penn.
The same night, from 6-8 p.m. (so you can totally go to both), White Tiger hosts a fundraiser for Stranger Danger, Flagpole's band in the Athens Business Rocks competition, feature "Stranger Things"-themed music, food and drinks. Proceeds will benefit Nuci's Space.
As y'all know (or should know), Ciné, our only art-house theater, is also a nonprofit, and like all nonprofits, it needs to raise money apart from ticket sales. It's partnering with My Athens to throw a three-course benefit catered by The National, with beers from Wild Heaven, this Saturday, Feb. 25, at 6:15 p.m. in the CinéLab.

April is probably still tops when it comes to scheduling food events, as it combines beautiful weather with a lack of football competition, but October is pretty dang crazy too. Here's some of what's coming up (click here for previous coverage of some other October food events that are taking place this weekend):
Tomorrow night (Saturday, Sept. 17, starting at 7 p.m.), Hendershots, in the Bottleworks on Prince, is hosting a food/music/drink/fashion thingie called The Experience. The coffee bar/bar bar will provide drinks, Monsoon is playing music, and designer Kristen Stanfill will feature her clothes.
But what we're concerned with here is the food. It's being supplied by an LLC called Springhouse, registered in Augusta, that specializes in these kinds of events, and the menu looks appropriately interesting: sorghum caramel corn, fancy roasted vegetable tacos, chicken satay, a take on banana pudding, things like that. Tickets are $35 including online convenience fee and can be purchased from athensmusic.net.
