The Weekender

In-N-Out, Bowling and a Candy Cart

The weekend is ready for the Thunder (or the Grizzlies).

Thursday
Your New Shades, Worthy of Churchill
PARKED

Your New Shades, Worthy of Churchill

We’ll just say it: your eyes are, well, a thing of beauty. But sometimes they need help. So the Nest is hosting a pop-up shop with vintage-inspired frames from Warby Parker, named for the likes of Churchill and Miles Davis. You’ve always considered Sir Winston a style icon.

In-N-Out Comes to Texas
ANIMAL STYLE

In-N-Out Comes to Texas

Today is a huge day in Texas-California relations. The legend that is your favorite West Coast burger spot has finally brought its secret sauce to the Lone Star State. So today you can journey to Frisco or Allen and order a burger Animal Style. We won’t tell Burger House.

Now open, In-N-Out, 2800 Preston Rd, Frisco, and 190 E Stacy Rd, Allen, 800-786-1000

Friday
Lucky Strike Invades Fort Worth
KING PIN

Lucky Strike Invades Fort Worth

Speaking of LA, the neon-friendly bowling alley born in LA has made a home on 7th Street of Cowtown. Now after throwing rocks, you can grab a pint on their patio beer garden or order up some beef short ribs. Beer gardens and bowling: together at last.

A Restaurant in a Restaurant in One Arts
TABLE TALK

A Restaurant in a Restaurant in One Arts

You new late-night burger spot in One Arts Plaza is rolling out one more layer of restaurant with The Table. You’ll make reservations at the communal table, then let them bring out six courses, followed by a candy cart. Nothing pairs with beef tongue like Starburst.

Now open Thu-Sat, The Table at The Commissary, 1722 Routh St, 214-643-6557

Saturday
A Tea Party with Beer
YOUR CUP OF TEA

A Tea Party with Beer

Picture a tea party. Now take away the sunroom, the good china and your ascot. And insert the Common Table patio with a jazz band, 12 Belgian beers on tap and mussels. And despite the name, there’s no tea involved at all.
