Handcrafted wines flow freely inside the elegant tasting room of Clear Creek Vineyard & Winery. Made with grapes sourced straight from the sunny vineyards of Texas and California, varietals such as cabernet sauvignon, malbec, sangiovese, and chenin blanc line the racks along the walls and are available to taste by the pour right at the bar. The Clear Creek team was recently joined by executive chef Michael Calvino, who has crafted a farm-to-table menu ideal for wine pairings and also oversees multi-course vintner dinners.

On the breezy shores of Galveston Bay in the Lighthouse District, the second-annual Kemah Oktoberfest takes place on the first weekend of October?or, the same weekend Oktoberfest in Germany traditionally comes to an end. The parking-lot party entices festival-goers with an 8,000-square-foot beer tent and handcrafted beers from all over the world, including Germany, Holland, and Austria. While revelers drink up and enjoy the beautiful autumn weather, local and national bands keep toes tappin' with upbeat tunes and polka classics.
This year the purveyors at the Kemah Crawfish Festival will be celebrating the event's fifth anniversary fittingly?with crawfish innovation.

In addition to crawfish, this festival also features three days of drinks, and live music from the likes of Louisiana songwriter Wayne Toups.
