Saturday, 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Buzzy smashburger concept Boo’s Burgers, the idea of the barista-by-day, burger-flipper-by-night Joseph Boudreux, takes a break from his usual The Tipping Point pop-up and goes to Cochinta & Co. and Kickin ‘ Kombucha place this Saturday evening. With crispy edges and topped with American cheese, LTO, pickles, and Boudreux’s addicting burger sauce, the burgers have historically been known to sell out through pre-orders (even top chef finalist Dawn Burrell is a fan). No pre-orders are taken this time, so you have the chance to show up on site and win a burger.
Sunday, 5pm to 11pm
3101 San Jacinto
