(Deborah Cannon AMERICAN-STATESMAN)

Stay out of the heat with these indoor food events this weekend:

Parkside kicks off its summer guest chef series Sunday evening when it welcomes pop-up specialist chef Brandon Silva of Wooster’s Garden and Heights Bier Garten in Houston. The 6:30 p.m.dinner costs $35 per person. Silva will be joined in the kitchen by Parkside executive chef Nathan Lemley, and the summer-inspired six-course menu will include fried chicken, bratwurst, black soft shell crab, kanpachi with smoked roe and more. Tickets can be purchased online. Diners will also receive three cocktails. The series continues July 16 with Los Angeles chef and “Top Chef” alumnus Phillip Frankland Lee and concludes August 20 with chef Lyle Bento of Southern Goods of Houston.

Forthright Cafe (35 Brazos St.) downtown will host a rosé dinner Sunday night with winemakers from Lost Draw Cellars, Lewis Wines, William Chris Vineyards and Tatum Cellars. The four-course menu will be paired with four different rosés. Tickets are $49 and can be purchased online.
