Pakpao Pad Thai Throwdown; Clay Pigeon Wine Dinner

DESIGN DISTRICT—Pakpao's first annual pad Thai throwdown went down yesterday with a judging panel that included John Tesar, Tre Wilcox and former Maverick Derek Harper. Talented home cook Alonso Zalcido beat out two others with his extra-spicy version to win $500, though he couldn't quite take down Pakpao partner/Cutthroat Kitchen judge Jet Tila in round two.

FORT WORTH—Clay Pigeon will host a four-course Silver Oak wine dinner on Tuesday, September 16 at 6:30 p.m. with dishes to include hamachi crudo and duck confit tortellini. If you've got $160 (tax and tip included) burning a hole in your pocket, call (817) 882-8065 to reserve. [EaterWire]

DALLAS—The Clicquot mail truck is coming to town, and as you might've guessed, it delivers not junk mail but Veuve Clicquot champagne. Hit up Savor on Saturday, September 27 from 5-8 p.m. for champagne and gourmet burger pairings with Yellow Label for $15 a glass or $75 a bottle, plus giant Jenga and Clicquot bottle toss, which sounds only vaguely dangerous depending on how much you've had to drink.
