Things to do for November 18, 2010

The Weekender

Elbow Patches, Big Sandwiches and Lasers

The weekend wants what the weekend wants.

Friday
A 1900s-Style Light Show, with Booze
LASERS

A 1900s-Style Light Show, with Booze

First, you’ll grab a cocktail. Then, you’ll stroll through a neighborhood straight out of 1910 (but with wi-fi) as 41 artists light it up with interactive exhibits (think metal sculptures with lasers), the Krooks Band plays, and you eat a brisket sandwich. But bring cash, because that era frowned on ATMs.

SALE-ING

40% Off Billy Reid

Meanwhile, at the mall: Billy Reid is taking up to 40% off goods from his fall collection, which means you can snag Southern gentlemanly button-downs, sweaters and winter coats on the cheap. Plus, he’ll be cutting prices on his boots. And if you need a sugar rush, there’s always Cinnabon.

Nov 18-20, Billy Reid, 8687 N Central Expy, No 1440, 214-346-0010

Saturday
Live Music and 15 Glasses of Wine
VINO

Live Music and 15 Glasses of Wine

Wine tastings are good. Wine free-for-alls are better. And wine-free-for-alls hosted by Guadalajaran bikini teams are best. But back to that second one. For three hours this Saturday, you can down 15 wines, listen to live Latin music and eat apple tartlets. Which we hear really bring out a cabernet’s spiciness.

Nov 20, 2-5pm, $25, Vino 100, 2909 McKinney Ave, Suite A, 214-969-9463

Sunday
Riding Your Bike Like Andy Bernard
TWEED

Riding Your Bike Like Andy Bernard

Sometimes, for no good reason whatsoever, you just need to throw on a blazer with elbow patches and ride around the city like you went to Cornell and sang in the glee club. Enter the Dallas Tweed Ride, where you’ll cruise from the Grassy Knoll to the Turner House in Bishop Arts, and then drink and play bocce ball. Go ahead, wear your newsboy-style riding helmet.

Nov 21, 3:30-5pm, no cost, starts at the Grassy Knoll, 411 Elm St, 214-946-1670

Monday
Mondays, Now with Huge Sandwiches
MANWICH

Mondays, Now with Huge Sandwiches

Because Mondays can be less than awesome, Neighborhood Services is rolling out a massive sandwich for you. They still don’t know what they’re doing this week, but last week they dropped a meat bomb with thick pork slices covered in ranch, slaw, bacon, onions, peppers, provolone and lettuce. Pair it with a 24-ounce PBR for $14. And regret nothing.
