The Weekender

Inception, Juleps and a Red Velvet Twinkie

The weekend is not done yet.

Thursday
Presenting the Red Velvet Twinkie
CRUSHED VELVET

Presenting the Red Velvet Twinkie

You’ve done the research. Ran the numbers. And the results are in. Red velvet + Twinkie = optimal first-date dessert. So the guys at Horne & Dekker threw on their lab coats (we assume) and cooked up a Red Velvet Twinkie stuffed with cream filling. Stats don’t lie.

Available now, $7, Horne & Dekker, 2323 N Henderson Ave, Ste 102, 214-821-9333

Friday
Fish. Tequila. Enough Said.
UNCHARTED WATERS

Fish. Tequila. Enough Said.

Word association time, let’s go. Peanut butter: jelly. Chicken: waffles. Fish: tequila. (Naturally.) At Dallas Fish Market on Friday, you’ll get four courses of fish paired with tequila, including blue crab cakes and margaritas. Our apologies to chips.

Saturday
Mint Juleps for the Belmont
AND THEY’RE OFF

Mint Juleps for the Belmont

Gambling. Thoroughbreds. Mint juleps. But enough about last weekend—let’s talk about the Belmont. The Library Bar is whipping up Belmont Juleps (peach schnapps is involved) and Churchill Steaks for the race. It’s strictly BYO-jockey.

The Common Table Turns One
THE BIG ONE

The Common Table Turns One

Your birthday: technically just one day. But the celebration usually requires weeks. The Common Table understands. So on Saturday, you’ll stop in for a cold stout as Alpenmusik performs. Sunday, “Like” their Facebook page and get half off pints and rib eyes. Just don’t forget your present.

Watching Inception Under the Stars
DREAM WEAVER

Watching Inception Under the Stars

Your home theater is lovely. But sometimes you need to be under the stars, on a blanket, watching Inception on a 24-foot inflatable screen. And let’s go ahead and put you in Main Street Garden surrounded by the Dallas skyline. A little Marion Cotillard doesn’t hurt.
