HEIGHTS—In honor of National Margarita Day, El Gran Malo is serving up $5 house margaritas or $15 mix and match infused margarita flights starting at 11 a.m. this Saturday (Feb. 22). More info here. [EaterWire]

UPPER KIRBY— Esteemed local chefs Hugo Ortega (Hugo's and Caracol) and Manabu Horiuchi (Chef Hori) are hosting an Umami Dinner March 2. This nine-course seated dinner was originally slated for a July date last year, but it was pushed back after Ortega was involved in a serious bicycle accident. The meal's back on and will cost diners $175 per person. Wine and beverage pairings will be provided by Kata Robata's beverage director Steven Salazar and Backstreet Café/Caracol sommelier Sean Beck. Call 713-526-8858 to reserve a seat. [EaterWire]

LISTICLES— With crawfish season gearing up, it's easy to forget the other Cajun craving: gumbo. Here, Zagat Houston offer diners seven places to find a great bowl of the hearty stew without having to venture too far out. On the list is Danton's: "Either seafood with shrimp, crab and oysters or chicken and sausage. Price: $6.95 for a cup, $10.95 for a bowl." [Zagat Houston]
