Things to do for February 17, 2011
Pizza, Eight-Tracks and a Texas Beer Night
The weekend will see you on Tuesday.
The Great Toasting Competition
At Trinity Hall’s annual toast-off, you’ll go mano a mano to determine who can deliver the most moving speech. The winner’s determined by applause—and hey, you could use a few dry runs before Prince William’s wedding.
The World’s First Eight-Track Museum
The Kimbell Art Museum. The Sixth Floor Museum. And now joining our city’s league of elite cultural institutions: the Eight-Track Museum. This Deep Ellum studio houses the world’s largest eight-track collection, including tapes from Dylan and Pink Floyd. Bring your own shag carpeting.
Sweet Waffle Brunch at Saint Ann
This week, your favorite schoolhouse-turned-restaurant is launching Sunday brunch with sweet waffles, migas, and fried chicken and biscuits. And like at most great grade-school cafeterias, mimosas will be served.
Half-Price Pizza and Pitchers
The flowers. The date. The Facebook status change. Last Monday was... complicated. So let’s keep this Monday simple: pizza and beer. You can get half-off pizzas covered in ham and jalapeños and pitchers of Shiner at Knox Street Pub. Simplicity is best served in pitcher form.
Drinking Texas Beers for $2.50
Texas has produced some amazing things: Oil. Tex-Mex. Farrah Fawcett. And, of course, beer. At the Libertine Bar, you can support your own because every Texas-based beer—from Saint Arnold to Rahr—is just $2.50. The sacrifices you make for your state.
