The Weekender

Crawfish, Trolleys and the Biggest Pretzel in Baseball

The weekend is still batting 1.000.

Day Drinking at a Trolley Stop
BLOCK SHOT

Day Drinking at a Trolley Stop

Where most people see a trolley stop, you see a beer-and-wine-fueled street party—one where you can peruse art and sculpture to the sounds of the Boxcar Bandits. And just your luck: the MAC is hosting such a party this Saturday. Don’t forget to tip your conductor.

The Year’s Biggest Record Store Bash
HIGH FIDELITY

The Year’s Biggest Record Store Bash

For National Record Store Day, you’ll: (1) hire Jack Black to organize your records, and (2) head to Good Records for an all-day music festival with 12 bands, 11 DJs, Taco Joint tacos and Lone Star. Plus, a raffle to win a vintage jukebox. Unfortunately, it doesn’t play MP3s.

Apr 16, 8am-midnight, Good Records, 1808 Lower Greenville Ave, 214-752-4663

Sunday
Buckets of Beer and Pounds of Crawfish
BOILING OVER

Buckets of Beer and Pounds of Crawfish

The crawfish. A mini lobster without that East Coast bias. And Sunday, on the patio of Ten Sports Grill, you’ll get them two pounds at a time, followed by a cold bucket of beers. No, those aren’t available by the pound.

Komali Launches Brunch
QUESO

Komali Launches Brunch

At the new joint just off Fitzhugh, you’ve experienced it all: tequila flights, Mexican meatballs and a massive stone chair straight from a Mayan ruin. That is, everything except brunch. That changes this weekend. Your Sundays needed more queso fundido.

Sundays, Komali, 4152 Cole Ave, 214-252-0200

Monday
The Biggest Pretzel in Baseball
FAIR GAME

The Biggest Pretzel in Baseball

Josh Hamilton. Oof. So let’s switch to a lighter note—well, technically, a heavier note. At Rangers Ballpark, you can order a three-pound pretzel delivered in a large pizza box with three dipping sauces (including nacho cheese). It’s 3,700 calories per serving—your section will love you.

Now available, $12.50, Rangers Ballpark, Sections 11, 29 and 327, and the club level
