FORT WORTH—Millennials these days really only know how to express themselves through emojis, and thankfully Swiss Pastry Shop is turning those complicated pictorial feelings into cookies. The frosted emoji cookies come in such popular iterations as crying face, gleeful constipation, and dead-yet-surprised. [SPS/Facebook]

OAK CLIFF—This Sunday Tim Byres will host the second annual Salute to King Creole Crawfish Festival at Chicken Scratch. Expect gumbo, andouille sausage, grilled oysters, and a Louisiana-style seafood boil, drinks by Deep Ellum Brewing Company and Jim Beam Kentucky Fire, live music by a zydeco band, and tattoo artists (in case you want to commemorate the event?). Tickets are $20 and the rain-or-shine event goes from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. [EaterWire]

DEEP ELLUM—Braindead Brewing is hosting a five-course beer tasting dinner next Monday, April 20 for $70 per person. As is fitting on 4/20, expect to see hemp pop up in a few dishes. The dinner starts at 8 p.m., or come at 7 p.m. for a rare beer tasting and meet-and-greet with the band Mothership. [EaterWire]
