This week marks the first of two major benefits for Nathanial Zimet, the chef/owner of Boucherie (8115 Jeannette St., 862-5514; www.boucherie-nola.com) who is recovering from gunshot wounds suffered during a robbery last month. Local breweries and liquor providers come together June 24 for "Beers Not Bullets," a tasting event at NOLA Brewing (3001 Tchoupitoulas St., 613-7727; www.nolabrewing.com) with food and live music. Advance tickets are $30. See www.beersnotbullets.eventbrite.com. Zimet's supporters also are planning a July 10 benefit called "Beasts and Brass."
