Mazzantini Pours Drinks Tonight; Music Fest

GALLERIA— While Osteria Mazzantini won't be serving fine Italian fare until September 2nd, tonight is the first night of bar service. Bar bites and cocktails will be served up at the bar of this Galleria-area restaurant, headed by Mockingbird's John Sheely. [Eaterwire]

TICKET WIRE—While the anticipated Discovery Green festival Paste Untapped Houston isn't until November 16, ticket sales went live today. With performers including The Tontons, The Walkmen, The Suffers and Wild Moccasins plus over 200 varieties of craft beer on hand, you'd be wise to buy tickets soon. [Eaterwire]

TACO WIRE— The Daily Meal ranked 35 of the best tacos in the country. On the list from Houston is El Real's Chicken Puffy Taco and (Austin chain) Torchy's Trailer Park Taco. While we can think of several other local tacos that should be on the list, it's still good to see so much Texas representation on another national ranking. [Eaterwire]
