Things to do for July 14, 2011

The Weekender

Vintage Cars, $1 Bellinis and Sushi 101

The weekend just promoted you to head muddler.

Thursday
A French Street Party in Bishop Arts
MUSSEL MEN

A French Street Party in Bishop Arts

Tonight, head to Bishop Arts (with or without a beret) for wine and a mussels competition from the chefs at Bolsa and Smoke. After hitting the pétanque courts, stop by a Vespa rally for some accordion music. (Yes, Vespas are Italian, but who’s counting.)

Pool Partying for Bastille Day
NAPOLEON DYNAMITE

Pool Partying for Bastille Day

To honor France’s national holiday, you should probably sip champagne (naturally) poolside at ZaZa with a DJ, French macarons, a mime (seriously) and an actor dressed as Napoleon—who technically had nothing to do with Bastille Day (other than the whole “being French” thing).

Jul 14, 8pm-midnight, Hotel ZaZa, 2332 Leonard St, 214-468-8399, mention UrbanDaddy to get in

Friday
Eatting BBQ in a Vintage Cadillac
CADDY SHACK

Eatting BBQ in a Vintage Cadillac

Listen carefully. Actually, read carefully. For one hour only, Hotel Palomar is dishing out gratis iced coffee, sangria and barbecue sliders. And because you need a place to sit, they’re bringing in new and vintage Cadillacs. Don’t get sauce on the leather.

Jul 15, 5-6pm, Hotel Palomar, 5300 E Mockingbird Ln, 214-520-7969

Saturday
$1 Mini-Bellinis at Patrizio
BUCK

$1 Mini-Bellinis at Patrizio

July. Fourteen down and 17 to go. And to ease the pain of the Texas sun, your friends at the Highland Park Patrizio are serving up five-ounce Bellinis for a dollar throughout the month of July. You always prefer to fight the heat with champagne.

Through July, Patrizio, 25 Highland Park Village, 214-522-7878

Next Saturday
Sushi 101 at Steel
BACK TO SCHOOL

Sushi 101 at Steel

Ah, school. The tests. The homework. The sushi. You’ll find at least one of those at this class, where students learn to roll Firecracker Rolls with Steel’s sushi chefs. Tickets are going fast, but the first person to call Steel and mention UD will get two seats. Study hard.

Jul 23, 2:45-5:30pm, $55, Steel, 3180 Welborn St, 214-219-9908, mention UrbanDaddy for reservations
