The Weekender

Fireworks, Corn Dogs and Running with the Bulls

The weekend is ironing its American flag.

Watching Fireworks on a Yacht
’WORK IT

Watching Fireworks on a Yacht

Quick, let’s talk 7/3. We see you on the biggest yacht on Lewisville—lounging on the deck, sliding down the waterslide, testing jet skis. Then, as a DJ spins, you’ll sit back and enjoy some burgers. Don’t get ketchup on the jet skis.

Honor Our Nation with Short Ribs
MONK

Honor Our Nation with Short Ribs

The three-day weekend: a glorious time when your Sundays can be a little more Saturday-ish. For instance, a short-rib Benedict brunch at the Old Monk... that leads to a DJ-fueled evening with $5 beers and a libation called the Purple Jesus. It’s like holy water with grenadine.

Jul 3, 11am-2am, The Old Monk, 2847 N Henderson Ave, 214-821-1880

A Rock-and-Roll Midnight Pool Party
POULE PARTY

A Rock-and-Roll Midnight Pool Party

Bad news: Sunday night’s pool party at the Joule with Foster the People is sold out. Good news: we rounded up a handful of tickets. Just email why you deserve the tickets to win. You did open for them in London, after all.

Monday
A Patriotic Corn-Dog-Eating Contest
STATUE OF LIBERTINE

A Patriotic Corn-Dog-Eating Contest

You’ve readied the fireworks. Queued up the patriotic playlist. (“Coming to America,” your time is now.) Just one thing’s missing: corn dogs. Head to the Libertine for a 15-minute eating contest. First prize gets a $100 bar tab, but respect is served on a stick.

Wednesday
Bulls and 50-Cent Sangria
BY THE HORNS

Bulls and 50-Cent Sangria

The running of the bulls. Naturally, there’s only one place you’d want to watch it: Pamplona. First runner-up: a tapas joint off Cole. To sweeten the deal, they’re throwing in (you guessed it) sangria for 50 cents. Sorry, you can’t pay in euros.

Jul 6, 11am-11pm, Sangria, 4524 Cole Ave, 214-520-4863
