The Weekender

Sausage, Sinatra and a Trolley Crawl

The weekend is your shelter from the week’s storm.

Thursday
Sausage and Wine Tasting at Jimmy’s
SAUSAGE KING

Sausage and Wine Tasting at Jimmy’s

Jimmy’s. They’ve been your under-the-radar meatball hookup for years. Or maybe they haven’t. Either way, you’ll want to check out this one-night-only feast of seven red wines paired with Italian meats (think: Italian sausage) and antipasto. You’ve rarely had this much fun in a grocery store.

A Pub Crawl with Trolleys
TROLLEY CRAWL

A Pub Crawl with Trolleys

Ah, the pub crawl. The friends. The cocktails... The trolleys. Tonight’s cable-car-fueled agenda starts with empanadas at Lumi, cruises to Sambuca for dinner (pork chops, shrimp pomodoro) and ends with chocolate lava cake at Bread Winners. It’s the official cake of the MATA.

Saturday
Chasing Beer with Chocolate
CHOCOLATE CHASER

Chasing Beer with Chocolate

Monday’s approaching, and you need to get chocolate for that special someone: you. So the Ginger Man’s hosting a chocolate-and-beer tasting with 10 different drafts, each paired with a different chocolate. You always said your Duvel could use more caramel.

Sunday
Sipping Wine Like Vintage Travolta
DISCO, DISCO

Sipping Wine Like Vintage Travolta

Vino 100 is breaking out its disco ball, playing ’70s tunes and showing movies like Saturday Night Fever as they offer 25% off all wines this Sunday. Feel free to take your wine home or drink it there. Just don’t spill any on your white polyester pants.

Feb 13, Vino 100, 2909 McKinney Ave, Suite A, 214-969-9463

Monday
Sinatra and Bogart on Valentine’s Day
RAT PACK

Sinatra and Bogart on Valentine’s Day

Monday requires romance—the greeting-card companies decreed it so. Your play: Lakewood Theater, where Ricki Derek will perform Sinatra classics, and as an encore, they’ll dim the lights and show Casablanca on the big screen. As for what happens next, let’s just say the greeting-card companies approve.
