Things to do for June 23, 2011
Lobster, Die Hard and a Boozy Picnic
The weekend is watering the Slip ’N Slide.
Beer with a Side of Bacon
Brace yourself. Today we bring word of the happy hour to end all happy hours. Two words: free bacon. So after the generous souls at Mextopia pour you a Firemans #4 for $2.75, you’ll follow it up with your choice of sweet or spicy bacon. Our apologies to bar nuts.
Pub Crawling, WWII-Style
You enjoy doing good (mostly). Coincidentally, you also enjoy burgers and pitchers... and wearing WWII gear. (Just go with it.) Conveniently, this pub crawl—starting at TopGolf and traveling through the Old Monk and the Katy Trail Ice House—supports the Wounded Warrior Project. You know what to do.
Sipping Martinis with John McClane
It’s officially summer. So naturally you’re thinking about Christmas movies. Specifically, ones with a loose cannon cop hunting down German terrorists. That’s why you’ll order up a martini at the Inwood Lounge and take in a Die Hard screening. You love Christmas in the summer.
A Boozy Picnic at the Lake
Your picnic game: strong. But just in case, chefs from RedFork, Bolsa and the Grape are prepping housemade sausages and smoked brisket for your next one. You’ll feast on tables next to the water at White Rock Lake, along with about 350 new friends. So bring your 350-person blanket as a backup.
The Commissary’s Sunday Lobster Bake
Sunday, you’re going east. To a magical land where lobsters fall from the sky. Actually, scratch that—you’re actually going to the Commissary for a bucket filled with corn, potatoes, tomatoes and 1.25 pounds of lobster with drawn butter. There’s chocolate pie, too. But we had you at lobster.
