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.

Looking for your favorite Athens food trucks on Barber at the Jittery Joe's Roaster today? They ain't there. Due to worries about the weather (rain is anticipated), Holy Crepe, Taza, DaMunchiezz, Kona Ice and Farm Cart can be found starting at 5 p.m. tonight at the Classic Center's pavilion, on Foundry Street, which is covered. Ten percent of sales benefit the Circle of Friends Animal Society.

Various folks from Athens' Hispanic and Latino community sell food on a regular basis to raise money for families in need due to deportations. This Saturday, you can come buy their wonderful goods at Little Kings from 6 p.m. until the food runs out. (You'll be over there for the Hot Corner Festival anyway.) Offerings include tamales, enchiladas, flautas, tinga, aguas frescas and more. No set prices; just donate what you can.

1000 Faces Coffee is hosting Brew Down V, a coffee-brewing competition among five baristas, tomorrow (Tuesday, May 17) at 7 p.m. Rachel Eubanks (Creature Comforts), Ben Mueller (1000 Faces), Blake Tyers (Creature Comforts), Will Shurtz (Methodical Coffee, in City View, SC) and Micah Sherer (Ally Coffee, in Taylor, SC) will compete to see who can make the best cuppa. Sara Frinak of Hugh Acheson's Spiller Park Coffee in Atlanta will emcee, and Lindsey Pittman (Trade & Lore, in Asheville, NC), Jessica Rothacker (Heirloom Cafe) and Dale B. Donchey (Spiller Park) will judge. The event is free to all, with Creature Comforts beer and snacks.
It's the rare eatery that actually opens when it says it will, between contractors, health inspections and getting funding squared away. Athenians will be pleased to know, however, after some months of peering in the windows, that Zombie Coffee and Donuts is opening its branch downtown (in the former Your Pie, on Broad) next Monday, May 23.
