Things to do for June 09, 2011
Bloody Marys for Lunch, Grilled Cheese and Margaritas
The weekend will sleep when it’s dead.
The Tipsy Pig Debuts Lunch
With a heated patio, library and parlor with a bar from 1926 at your fingertips, the Tipsy Pig is the sort of place you wouldn’t mind just... hanging around. Good news on that front: they just started lunch service. Come in for Pulled Pork Sloppy Joes and Bloody Marys, and do justice to the name Tipsy Pig.
$5 Margarita Fridays at Mijita
You already knew about Mijita’s $5 margarita happy hour during the week, so you’ll be happy to hear that they’ve extended it to all day, every Friday. To put it another way: you’ve got 10 hours’ worth of $5 margaritas in your future—namely tomorrow.
Grilled Cheese Sandwich Crawl
For the next week, you’ll get to sample special cheesy sandwiches like the American’s mac-and-cheese grilled cheese, Globe’s bacon and tomato sandwich and Ironside’s bison cheeseburgers. Eight days and five sandwiches... We think the odds are in your favor.
Unlimited Microbrews at Brew Fest
In a reverse pub crawl move, breweries like nearby Drake’s and Napa Smith and further afield ones like Oregon’s Ninkasi, Tibet’s Lhasa and some Belgians are all coming to you. The VIP ticket gives you an hour jump-start on the 150 microbrews—just think what you can accomplish in 60 minutes.
We’ve never seen a cowboy knocking back zinfandel, but that doesn’t mean it’s never happened. In fact, this second annual Texas BBQ and wine rodeo in a huge converted airplane hangar is living proof—so long as guys dressed up like cowboys counts.
