CRAFT BOOZE? Next Tuesday, May 8, bartenders James Ives and Ryan Gannon are going crazy with the rum (and the rhum!) at Bellocq. As part of the "In the Glass" series, they're making a special rum (and rhum!) menu with 25% of the proceeds going to charity. They're staying open a bit later for a Tuesday night, 'til 1 a.m. [EaterWire]

CINCO DE MAYO? While many restaurants and bars use Cinco de Mayo as an excuse for hokey, Mexican-ish menus and deals on Corona and cheap tequila, chef Guillermo Peters of Canal Street Bistro is going with a more legit, upscale Mexican menu. (Peters used to be the chef/owner of Taqueros on St Charles Avenue before helping rebrand Eco Café as Canal Street Bistro.) The menu is available online. [EaterWire]

EVENT PLANNING? Next weekend, May 12 and 13, is the annual Veggie Fest, a vegan event with speakers, food and burlesque. [Gambit]
