Start by choosing your base: either a wrap made with seaweed, sesame soy, Cheetos or other ingredients, or a bowl filled with Jasmine rice, kale mix, Bootea rice or spring mix. Next, add protein (salmon, tuna and shrimp among other options), sides (like onions, cabbage, carrots and avocados), toppings (such as dried seaweed, fried garlic or Parmesan cheese) and finish with a sauce.
- For a more upscale seafood experience, visit Chamberlain’s Fish Market Grill this weekend. Their selection of seafood and steaks is fresh and masterfully prepared, meaning anything you order will be good! Options include charbroiled oysters, Chilean Sea Bass, Wild Caught Texas Red Snapper Victoria, Alaskan King Crab Legs and more. You can also find many different cuts of steaks, savory sides and decadent desserts.
- End the weekend on a high note by seeing Jack Mason on Sunday night from 7-9 p.m. at Mercy Wine Bar. This Texas-based musician has performed all over the world, including at the International Fifa Fan Fest 2014 in front of 12,00 people. This passionate singer, producer and songwriter mainly uses the electric guitar and his powerful voice to put on an entertaining show. His music is a blend of Americana, country, blues, pop and rock music with a twist of Latin percussion – a unique sound that will pair perfectly with a glass of wine.
