Mary O'Connor sprouted from a huge family tree, one so big that the town of Port O'Connor, Texas was named after her family. She married into a clan of equal size, the Bramans, and looked after her children and grandchildren, cultivating their talents. She recognized in her grandson Joe a natural aptitude for the culinary arts, and she set him on his path to become a chef, sommelier, vintner, and person who eats sometimes.
Today, Joe owns and runs Braman Winery, honoring his grandmother with every ounce of wine he bottles. He creates complex flavor profiles in his wines, whether they're straight cabernet sauvignons, meritage blends that include sweet malbec grapes, or drier whites such as his pinot grigio. The winery also offers an assortment of meats, crackers, and cheese available for purchase along with unique items from the gift boutique.
Painting with a Twist adultizes the group art class by pairing expert instruction with the option to sip libations and socialize with other classmates. Check the schedule online to view available classes. Each two- or three-hour session will teach you step-by-step how to replicate the featured design (upcoming classes capture everything from flowers to crawfish, cafés, and the rugged masculinity of Burton Gilliam). Canvas, paints, and brushes are all provided, along with a handy stock of wine cups and openers to promote the creative flow. Upon the conclusion of your BYOB painting class, you'll have a 16”x20” painting to hang proudly atop your mantle.
"Mosset" means "small bites" in Catalan, and sure enough, Mosset Grille & Wine Bar has a menu of bar bites packed with appealing options: crispy calamari friti, smoked salmon over toasted brioche, roasted bone-in pork shank "lollipops." But that doesn't mean the main courses take a back seat. On the contrary, dishes such as the herb-crusted Australian lamb chops and the lobster ravioli in lobster-cognac cream sauce prove the restaurant handles entrees just as well as tapas.
The rest of the menu is a collection of upscale American eats with noticeable European and Latin American influences. These influences makes sense given that founders Obed Morales and Jose Flores share a love of international cuisine. They also both adore wine?hence the house wine cellar, which hosts more than 200 bottles, more than you'll find on display in many wine zoos. The staff pours 25 of these wines by the glass, when they're not serving dishes such as braised shortribs with polenta and bacon-wrapped Texas quail.

A day spent with the Texas Beer Bus crew
not only results in plenty of beer tastings, but in bragging rights, too. That's because the bus?s resident beer expert walks guests through the proper steps for smelling, sipping, and bathing in each
beer style. The air-conditioned bus takes the group to brewpubs and breweries, such as Fort Bend Brewing Co, Karbach Brewing Co., Texian Brewing Co., Buffalo Bayou Brewery, and No Label Brewing Co. Everyone gets
such as light lagers or imperial stouts,
but visits also grant everyone behind-the-scenes peeks at the brewing process. The bus, meanwhile, keeps everyone entertained with plenty of snacks.
The squiggles on Thai Siam’s menu indicate the spice level of each dish, on a scale of one (“warming up”) to four (“suicide hot”). “Warm up” with pineapple fried rice or go full throttle with red-curry tofu, then cool down after either with housemade coconut ice cream. The paper umbrella topper will draw a smile even through heat-induced tears.
