The Weekender

Oktoberfest, Pizza with Your Dog and The Dude

The weekend is high-fiving Nolan Ryan.

Thursday
Turning Your Photos into Fine Art
BRAND-NEW PERKS

Turning Your Photos into Fine Art

Your breathtaking photography deserves a suitable forum—preferably on canvas, in a world-renowned gallery. Or, you know, your bedroom. So Perks is turning your $50 into $100 of purchasing power at CanvasPop—a futuristic art studio that turns your humble JPEGs into gallery-worthy art. The Louvre is waiting.

A Street Full of Wine Samples
BISHOP-ING

A Street Full of Wine Samples

Look outside. It’s amazing. So you’ll want to head to the Bishop Arts District right now, pay $10 for one wine glass and then stroll from Eno’s Pizza to Indigo 1975, where stores will be filling your glass with free wine samples. And because free wine needs a soundtrack, there will also be live music.

Friday
The Big Lebowski on the Big Screen
THE DUDE

The Big Lebowski on the Big Screen

For one night (tomorrow night), the Inwood Theatre is showing The Big Lebowski on the big screen and serving up White Russians inside their Inwood Lounge. Now it’s just a question of where your bowling pre-party will be.

Oct 8, movie starts at midnight, Inwood Theatre, 5458 W Lovers Ln, 214-764-9106

Saturday
Oktoberfest at the G-Man
LEDERHOSEN

Oktoberfest at the G-Man

This Saturday, the Ginger Man is throwing an Oktoberfest with 13 new beers (including Spaten and Flying Dog), extending their beer garden into the parking lot and featuring cover bands from 3pm to midnight. They’ll also be hosting the Great Pretzel Hunt, where you can win German-inspired prizes. Like more beer.

Tuesday
2-for-1 Dinner at Zen Sushi
GET BENTO

2-for-1 Dinner at Zen Sushi

Cheap dates are good. Free dates are ideal. But back to cheap dates. Zen sushi is offering you two bento plates for the price of one. You’ll pay $18 for two mango teriyaki-glazed chicken breasts, California rolls, vegetable tempura and miso soup. Feel free to not tell your date.

Tuesdays, Zen Sushi, 380 W 7th St, 214-946-9699

Wednesday
Dog = Free Cheese Pizza
DOG DAYS

Dog = Free Cheese Pizza

Having a dog has its downsides: 2am walks, the endless dog hair and always getting hit on by cute girls. But on the upside, i Fratelli is giving away a free large cheese pizza every Wednesday in October (from 11am to 10pm) to the first 50 customers with a canine. Looks like your pre-noon pizza this week won’t be cold.

Wednesdays in October, 11am-10pm, i Fratelli, 2815 Allen St, 214-720-0070
