Here’s a look at the yummy food and drink this weekend:
Social Justice Candy at Tiny Champions
After Tiny Champions learned about the Texas Civil Rights Project’s work in combating the criminalization of refugee migrants and the unfair treatment of blacks and browns who come into contact with the criminal justice system, Tiny Champions wanted to do something to improve their work. The neighborhood darling has created a special dessert menu for this purpose, which donates half of the sales of its sweets to TCRP and offers sweets from “Justice is Peachy” peach sorbet to “No Walls No Borders” ice cream Sammy with a plum and caramel swirl Ice cream and poppy seed shortbread cookies. Reserve for dinner and order from the special menu or order online for same day pickup. Visit the Candy For Social Justice tab on the website for more information.

Sunday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Dandelion Cafe is celebrating five years with a special $ 5 menu of avocado toast, pancakes, homemade toaster strudel, moist bevs, mocktails and more. The family-friendly event will include a local musician, face painting and balloon art, KICPOPS ice pops, as well as raffles and prizes.
