Things to do for October 07, 2010
Oktoberfest, Pizza with Your Dog and The Dude
The weekend is high-fiving Nolan Ryan.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
