Things to do for January 06, 2011

The Weekender

$2 Pints, BBQ Tacos and a 27th-Floor Wine Tasting

The weekend’s resolutions have been pushed to 2012.

Thursday
Coney Dogs and Breakfast Tacos
TOP DOG

Coney Dogs and Breakfast Tacos

Your 2011 goal: breakfast with cowboys. Here to help: EClaire, whose new Western-themed café (think cowboy photos on the walls) serves bacon, egg and cheese tacos and something called Cowboy Coney Dogs, which come with cheese and cinnamon in the sauce. So leave your cinnamon shaker at home.

Friday
Wine Tasting 27 Floors Up
SKYSCRAPING

Wine Tasting 27 Floors Up

To celebrate the much-anticipated first Friday of 2011 (otherwise known as tomorrow), your favorite 27th-floor restaurant, Nana, is serving three courses paired with three wines for 20 bucks. You consider it bad manners to eat flank steak on anything below the 26th floor.

Jan 7, 6-8pm, $20, Nana, 2201 Stemmons Fwy, 214-761-7470

Tuesday
$2 Pints at Barley House
BREW HAHA

$2 Pints at Barley House

Consider this the light at the end of Monday: this Tuesday—and every Tuesday from here on out—Barley House will be pouring pints for $2 a pop. Ideal for the next time you want to pair a Firemans #4 with your Cowboy Burger.

Wednesday
Your New Korean Taco Joint
BBQ

Your New Korean Taco Joint

Goghee To Go is teaming with the LA-style Kogi BBQ truck and opening up a stationary Korean BBQ taco joint, where you can pick up a shaved beef rib eye taco in soy sauce and garlic. In 2011, tacos are the new tacos.

Common Table’s First Beer Dinner
SUPPER TIME

Common Table’s First Beer Dinner

Four courses. Five beers. That’s what you’ll find at the Common Table’s first beer dinner—think pairing Devil’s Share brews with Oktoberfest-boiled bratwurst. This is why you don’t make New Year’s resolutions.

Jan 12, 6:30-8:30pm, $40, reservations required, The Common Table, 214-880-7414
