If you can’t afford to enjoy Veuve Clicquot (or any legit Champagne) on the regular, you probably will want to take note — the swanky booze brand is headed to Houston and it’s got some fancy events in store.

The Veuve Clicquot Journey, a “traveling cross country pop-up champagne tour” will hit Houston this weekend, and it’s probably going to be wild. The tour will hit three popular venues with food & bubbly pairings, games, and plenty of Snapchat-worthy moments.

Here’s where they’ll be, and when:

Hotel ZaZa — Friday, September 16 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Lee’s Fried Chicken & Donuts — Saturday, September 17 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Brasserie 19 — Sunday, September 18 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. (Note: This event will feature Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label for $48/bottle, a bargain when you compare to some of the city’s more overpriced wine lists)

Fried chicken & donuts may not be the most obvious pairing with fancy champagne, but we’re not mad at it. The Clicquot Journey website doesn’t list any prices for the Champagne extravaganza, which presumably means that you won’t have to score a ticket, but don’t be surprised if you don’t end up paying for a few glasses of rosé.

The festivities begin on Friday afternoon, and no one will judge you if you just follow the champagne truck around all weekend long.
