The Weekender

Margaritas, Bagpipes and SXSW in Dallas

The weekend minored in bracketology.

ST. PADDY’S

Right Now: Bagpipes and Pints on a Patio

Okay, don’t freak out. But right this very second, people are on the brick top patio at Blackfriar, enjoying green beer and live bagpipes. (And, starting at 8pm, local band Ishi.) We heard a few shepherd’s pies might be involved. Now grab your favorite leprechaun and go.

Sunday
A Little SXSW at Club Dada
NXNW

A Little SXSW at Club Dada

So you didn’t make it to SXSW this year—you were wiped out from your European tour. But at the dive-y Deep Ellum music hall, 20 bands from the festival will perform all day on the indoor and outdoor stages. You love having options when it comes to stages.

Mar 20, noon-2am, $13-$18.50, Club Dada, 2720 Elm St, 214-748-5105

Tuesday
50% Off Vino at Veritas
GLASSES

50% Off Vino at Veritas

With all the green beer flowing tonight, you need a break. And by a break we mean switching to red wine. Conveniently, the wine bar/date spot on Henderson is offering half off all glasses of wine all day on Tuesdays. Just because, that’s why.

Tuesdays, Veritas, 2323 N Henderson Ave, 214-841-9463

Wednesday
A Margarita Mixologist and Street Tacos
FEELING BLUE

A Margarita Mixologist and Street Tacos

Blue Mesa Grill’s hosting a tequila soiree with a street taco station, serving up chile-glazed steak and pulled-pork tacos. And their margarita mixologist (always trust a professional) is concocting Ruby Red Grapefruit Habañero Margaritas to wash it all down. Also, to satisfy your tequila and habanero fix.
