Every April 21, the Lone Star State celebrates San Jacinto Day, honoring the 1836 battle where Texas won its independence from Mexico.

TEXAZ Grill, 6003 N. 16th St., is serving up a Texas-themed party with cookbook author Robb Walsh and featuring authentic and complimentary Texas-style eats on Thursday, April 21, in honor of Texas’ 180th year of independence.

Walsh has written many Texas-centric cookbooks and was a restaurant reviewer and founding member of Foodways Texas. He is a former commentator on National Public Radio’s Weekend Edition, former restaurant critic at the Houston Press, former editor-in-chief of Chile Pepper Magazine, and three-time winner of the James Beard Award.

The public is invited to meet Walsh from 2-4 p.m., who will be on-hand signing copies of his “Legends of Texas Barbecue” and “The Chili Cookbook.” Both books will be available for purchase during the event. Throughout the event, TEXAZ Grill will serve complimentary samples of its house-made chili and hot links from Southside Market in Elgin, Texas. There also will be a cash bar.
