Former home of cattleman and Texas patriot José Antonio Navarro (1795–1871), Casa Navarro was saved from demolition in 1960, designated as a Texas State Historic Landmark in 1962 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972. Although it’s open year-round for tours ($1-$4 per person), the historic site opens its doors Tuesday evening for an informative and tasty Tamalada Publica. Coinciding with the City’s Downtown Tuesday initiative (park for free at city-operated parking garages, parking lots and parking meters every Tuesday evening from 5 p.m. – 2 a.m.), the free event invites attendees to “spread masa and fold corn husks while learning about the origins of tamales in Texas.” While guests won’t be able to take the tamales home, Casa Navarro will provide samples along with pan dulce and hot chocolate.”

When Allan Jaffe and his wife Sandra moved from Pennsylvania to New Orleans in the early ’60s, they didn’t initially come for the music. But they ended up staying for the music after they took over a small, dingy art gallery in the French Quarter and turned it into Preservation Hall, a 100-seat concert venue that became the home of many a New Orleans-style jazz jam session and yielded the touring group, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. The venue is still a hot spot in the city known for live music. The touring Preservation Hall Jazz Band will give San Antonians a taste of its 10th annual “Creole Christmas” on December 11 at the Empire Theatre. The group will perform holiday classics and also material from its previous albums.

The Orlando, Fla.-based quartet Trivium (guitarists/vocalists Matt Heafy and Corey Beaulieu, bassist/vocalist Paolo Gregoletto and drummer Nick Augusto) draws influence from heavyweights like Metallica, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest and Iron Maiden and creates music that’s been pegged as everything from metalcore to melodic death metal. Reminding that the band was “tipped for greatness” upon the surprise success of its 2005 release Ascendancy, only to be “consigned to the metallic dumper after the shambolic dropped clanger of 2006′s The Crusade,” The Guardian summed up this year’s offering Vengeance Falls (produced by Disturbed frontman David Draiman) as a “proud and focused heavy metal album that eschews current trends in favor of great songs, massive grooves, blazing lead breaks and a disarming air of combative euphoria.” Also on the bill: DevilDriver, After the Burial and Thy Will Be Done.
If you read her “official bio,” you’ll learn that New York-based Andrea Pomerantz Lustig is “known around the offices of Glamour as the “Beauty Sleuth,” thanks to the wildly popular beauty advice column and articles she wrote for the magazine for the last decade,” and that she’s “cherished by Glamour readers for her fresh, original beauty tips, ideas and solutions.” A look at her “unofficial bio” reveals that when she’s not appearing on shows like Good Morning America, Today and Entertainment Tonight, the University of Pennsylvania grad is likely juggling her “write-from-home career, three kids, a husband who’s more organized and demanding than Martha Stewart and an at-home beauty stash that takes up two rooms.” In support of her book How to Look Expensive: A Beauty Editor’s Secrets to Getting Gorgeous Without Breaking the Bank, Pomerantz Lustig visits the Barshop Jewish Community Center for a signing, meet-and-greet and presentation enhanced with “mini makeovers, snacks and sips, and a selection of unique items available for purchase from local favorite boutiques and jewelry designers.”
