The Weekender

Super (Punch) Bowls, a Crawfish Boil and Hot Toddies

The weekend won the coin toss; they’ll receive.

Friday
Fight the Cold with Hot Toddies
BRING THE HEAT

Fight the Cold with Hot Toddies

In case you haven’t noticed: it’s freezing. Even your socks need socks. So from now until Sunday, your favorite Henderson pub is pouring specialty boozy hot drinks like Irish coffees, hot toddies and hot buttered rum. It beats building a fire.

Sunday
The Super Bowl’s Unofficial Cocktails
BOWLED OVER

The Super Bowl’s Unofficial Cocktails

The Super Bowl. Definitely super, but not so much a bowl. So the Library Bar is serving up potent punches for four, spiked with everything from rum to wine. They’re also breaking out something called the All Out Blitz. Sadly, that’s only for one.

A Crawfish Boil and a Football Game
TAILGATING

A Crawfish Boil and a Football Game

Goodbyes are hard—especially when you’re bidding farewell to your dear friend tailgating. So Cretia’s is wrapping up football season with a live band, $4 beers and a free crawfish boil for Sunday’s game. Oh, and there’s a DJ playing after the game. Think of it as overtime.

Feb 6, 2pm-2am, Cretia’s, 4900 McKinney Ave, 214-780-0200

Polamalu Punch and Aaron Rodgers Dogs
QUARTER-BACK

Polamalu Punch and Aaron Rodgers Dogs

When you think of the Pittsburgh and Green Bay matchup, you think of one thing: food. And at the Quarter Bar, you’ll be watching the game with Pittsburgh Pork Sandwiches, Lambeau Burger Pie, Aaron Rodgers Dogs and something called Polamalu Punch. Which we’re hoping is a drink.

Monday
Gratis Pork Shoulder at Screen Door
SHRINKAGE

Gratis Pork Shoulder at Screen Door

The snow. The game. The after-after parties—Monday’s gonna be rough. To ease the pain, Screen Door’s giving you two off-menu small plates—including braised pork shoulder—totally gratis. They’ll do this the first Monday of every month—good thing you just cleared March 7 on your calendar.

First Monday of every month, 5-8pm, Screen Door, 2101 Cedar Springs Rd, 214-965-0440
