Sycamore Den's Ray Charles Tribute; Three Chef Barrel Smoker Dinner

Plus, a Taste of Adams Avenue.

NORMAL HEIGHTS— Kicking off at 9 p.m. on Wednesday, June 10 at Sycamore Den is a jazz-tinged tribute to the legendary Ray Charles on the anniversary of his passing. Charles was reportedly a fan of Bols Genever, requesting a bottle in his dressing room before every show, so the spirit brand is holding events around the country tomorrow night in his honor. Expect music and Bols Genever cocktails inspired by the American Jazz era. [EaterWire]

HILLCREST— If you miss The Patio's Tequia Ocho dinner, three of the participating chefs are also cooking up a feast at the next edition of the Barrel Smoker Dinner Series, presented by Baja Wine + Food & Planet Rooth on Thursday, June 18. Chefs Drew Deckman, Ryan Steyn and and Karla Navarro will be using iQ Oak Barrel Smokers to fuel a menu that will be paired with wines from Monte Xanic in the Valle de Guadalupe. [EaterWire]
