The Weekender

Jazz, Sushi and Flapper Girls

The weekend is projected to go in the first round.

Thursday
Wine Country, Delivered... for 42% Off
PERK ALERT

Wine Country, Delivered... for 42% Off

Imagine a wine tasting in Napa Valley. The crowds. The cabernets. Comparing notes with a ringer for Virginia Madsen. But you don’t have time for all that, so we’re getting you six mini-bottles of top-tier vino to try. And giving you $30 towards a bottle of your favorite. Virginia approves.

Live Jazz and Thai Food on a Patio
ALL THAT JAZZ

Live Jazz and Thai Food on a Patio

Patio season: in full bloom. And conveniently, so is the new Thai kitchen, Malai, which is hosting live jazz on its patio every Thursday. You’ll drink Ginger Bird Margaritas (Thai chilies are involved) and eat crispy wings. Nothing says jazz like Thai food.

Thursdays, 7-10pm, Malai Kitchen, 3699 McKinney Ave, 214-599-7857

Friday
Drinking with the Queen at 6am
LONDON CALLING

Drinking with the Queen at 6am

This week’s excuse to ditch the office on Friday: the royal wedding. Your play: from 5:30am to noon, the Londoner is hosting a watch party with English tea pastries, a traditional English fry-up and Royal Wedding Punch. Oh, and don’t forget to send your gift.

Apr 29, 5:30am-noon, Londoner, 2909 Thomas Ave, 214-979-2333

Five Sixty’s New Tasting Menu
UP IN THE AIR

Five Sixty’s New Tasting Menu

Your favorite rotating skyline restaurant is breaking out its new tasting menu—think sushi and dim sum paired with a flight of sake or a glass of sparkling wine. A 360-degree view always goes better with dim sum.

Saturday
Horse Racing and a Crawfish Boil
AND THEY’RE OFF

Horse Racing and a Crawfish Boil

The Kentucky Derby’s just eight days away, so you need to warm up. So (1) dust off your straw boater and (2) head to Lone Star Park this Saturday for horse races, 500 pounds of crawfish and the Zydeco Stingrays. We’re pretty sure that’s a band.

Apr 30, 1-5pm, Lone Star Park, 1000 Lone Star Pkwy, Grand Prairie, 972-263-7223

Tuesday
Sfuzzi, Now a Speakeasy
ROARING

Sfuzzi, Now a Speakeasy

For its one-year anniversary, Sfuzzi is hosting a Roaring ’20s party, including Prohibition-inspired cocktails, flapper girls and a DJ. And you thought they didn’t have DJs back then.

May 3, 8pm-2am, Sfuzzi, 2533 McKinney Ave, 214-953-0300
