UPTOWN—Wanna be a cocktail master like Lucky Campbell? Parliament is hosting a hands-on cocktail training class on January 25 from 2-5 p.m. $125 gets you the class, which will feature instruction in four drinks (Old Fashioned, Ramos Gin Fizz, seasonal drinks, and contemporary cocktails) plus all the necessary equipment: a shaker set, cutting board, paring knife, bar spoon, Hathorne strainer, and old-fashioned mixing glass.

TEXAS—Please pause for this very important Whataburger update: The beloved burger chain has just introduced a new limited-time-only "Chicken Strip Monterey Melt Sandwich", which includes chicken strips, Monterey Jack cheese, grilled onions, poblanos, red bell peppers, and jalapeno ranch on a toasted bun. Better file that information away for your next night of heavy drinking. [EaterWire]

HENDERSON AVE.—Velvet Taco's newest "WTF" (that's weekly taco feature) is pretty out there: wild sea trout with a fattoush salad, sumac vinaigrette, and a fried mint leaf are wrapped in a hibiscus tortilla, which is colored an eye-popping bright magenta from the inclusion of the tart flower. "WTF," indeed. [EaterWire]
