Models. Masks. Cocktails. And You.
MODELING

Models. Masks. Cocktails. And You.

Models and tacos. A timeless combination since... now. Tonight, Zouk and Fashionistas (yep, a fashion organization) are hosting a party with free Jorge’s beef tacos, gratis martinis, a DJ and mask-wearing models. This also gives you some creative ideas for queso.

Jan 20, 6:30-9pm, Zouk, 703 McKinney Ave, 214-754-8090

About Your Late-Night Kobe Burger Fix...

Central 214 understands you. Well, technically, they understand your stomach. So they’re keeping the grill on until midnight, serving up Kobe beef sliders and chili cheese fries alongside half-price cocktails like the Southern Heat. Tequila and jalapeños are involved—you wouldn’t want to catch cold.

Thu-Fri, 10pm-midnight, Central 214, 5680 N Central Expy, 214-443-9339

POP SECRET

Behold: Beer-Flavored Popcorn

You require three things to enjoy the NFL playoffs. Beer. Pizza. And Cowboys victories. Uptown Popcorn can help with two of those—they’ve got a new Super Bowl–ready beer/pizza popcorn, and buffalo wing popcorn as a backup. Now if they could just fix Romo’s clavicle.

Available now till the Super Bowl, Uptown Popcorn, 320 Northpark Ctr, 214-739-8195

Free Pie for National Pie Day
PIE IN THE SKY

Free Pie for National Pie Day

You can’t have your cake and eat it too. Which is why you prefer pie. So Norma’s is slicing you a free piece of anything you want, from coconut cream to peanut butter chocolate, for National Pie Day. You could get used to this fake holiday thing.

Tuesday
Introducing Piano Night at Eno’s
PIANO MAN

Introducing Piano Night at Eno’s

For nightcaps, this much is certain: location is key. And because your hot tub is somewhat less than subtle, you’ll want to try Eno’s in Bishop Arts—upstairs, they’re launching live jazz piano every Tuesday. Still, fire up the hot tub just in case.

Next Thursday
Meet the National Champs of Ping-Pong
KING OF PONG

Meet the National Champs of Ping-Pong

You: winner of zero National Ping-Pong Championships. Texas Wesleyan: winners of 41. They’ll show you their secrets in this Forrest Gump–style exhibition at Brackets, while you handle the garlic knots and Bacon Whiskey Manhattans. And scout players for your ping-pong fantasy league.

Jan 27, 6-8pm, Brackets, 5330 E Mockingbird Ln, 214-823-0123
