Things to do for May 05, 2011
Cinco de Mayo, Mint Juleps and the Mavericks
The weekend is doing laps at Churchill Downs.
Tequila, Mariachis and a Mechanical Bull
In the category of “another excuse to throw a party,” we have Cinco de Mayo. Related: Mattito’s is stocking its parking lot with margarita and fajita stations, a mariachi band and one mean mechanical bull. Feel free to wear your chaps.
Drinking Sake with a Master
Tomorrow, we know exactly what you want—something hot, foreign and intoxicating. But first, let’s talk sake. Kenichi’s hosting a party full of the stuff, sourced from all over Japan via the collection of Dallas’s only level II sake master. You wouldn’t celebrate Seis de Mayo any other way.
Do This on Derby Day
This Saturday, the sprawling Briggs Estate will greet you with a red carpet, two racehorses and silver trays overflowing with mint juleps. (So... typical Saturday.) On the lawn, you’ll get mini Hot Browns, the Derby on flat-screens and Southern belles playing croquet. Remember, she has a mallet.
Your Brunch, Now for a Dollar
Starting now, LaGrange is doing this: serving you a brunch buffet every first Saturday of the month... for a buck. They’ll be laying out everything from Texas Eggs Benedict to Challah French Toast. Go ahead, get your money’s worth.
Watching Dirk on a 30-Foot Screen
Dirk vs. Kobe. Cuban vs. Jackson. Dallas vs. that other city. It’s on. And you need a worthy watch party (in case your floor seats fall through). The Granada’s showing Game 4 on its 30-foot projection screen while serving up a fajita bar. It’s a different kind of assist.
