Things to do for October 28, 2010

The Weekender

BBQ Sandwiches, Body Paint and Michael Keaton

The weekend once played with two broken collarbones.

Thursday
A Celebrity-Filled Bash (Almost)
STAR POWER

A Celebrity-Filled Bash (Almost)

Trece is throwing a costume party where everyone is encouraged to dress up like a celebrity. (No, you can’t just go as yourself.) They’ll be rolling out three additional bars, complimentary “witch’s brew” mugs and Lindsay Lohan Lemon Drops. We’re pretty sure this is the first time Lohan’s been associated with drinking.

Oct 28, 7:30pm-2am, $5, Trece, 4513 Travis St, 214-780-1900

Saturday
Two Levels of Crazy on Halloween Eve
NEXT LEVEL

Two Levels of Crazy on Halloween Eve

FIG is taking their two levels of showrooms and turning them into a Halloween mega-bash, with five bands, five DJs, four burlesque enthusiasts, four dancers in body paint (and only body paint), a fortune teller and a photo booth. Photo booth seats three body paint dancers comfortably...

Sunday
Chef Battle in One Arts Plaza
TASTY

Chef Battle in One Arts Plaza

By Sunday, you might need some culinary healing. Enter the Block Party at One Arts Plaza, where you can sample bites from some of the city’s best cooks in a highly combative chef challenge. They’ll have everything for you from breakfast tacos to whiskey to roasted pumpkin. And you never miss roasted pumpkin.

Halloween with Beetlejuice
KEATON

Halloween with Beetlejuice

It’s hard to beat a Michael Keaton film pre-Multiplicity. So on Sunday night, after all the promiscuous nurses have danced their last dance, you can cozy up on Central 214’s patio and absorb the comic genius of Beetlejuice, as projected onto a 12-foot screen. Kobe burgers go great with thin Baldwin.

Oct 31, 8:30pm, Central 214, 5680 N Central Expy, 214-443-9339

Monday
A Pork-Filled Street Cart Debuts
BBQ SANDWICH

A Pork-Filled Street Cart Debuts

The weather is spectacular. In fact, it’s street-eating spectacular. So you’ll want to check out Squeals on Wheels, a new food cart in front of the Screen Door serving up everything from pulled-pork BBQ and citrus-slaw sandwiches to all-beef hot dogs. Don’t ask it to squeal like a pig.

Mon-Fri, 11:30am-2:30pm, outside Screen Door, 1722 Routh St #132, 214-720-9111
