We thought you needed a change of scenery... so we booked you a room and dinner for two at a Michelin-starred restaurant in Napa Valley. (Hope you don’t mind.) Then we saved you a seat for an epic feast in Manhattan, at Le Cirque’s LES pop-up restaurant. Get packing.
Things to do for August 11, 2011
In-N-Out, Gratis Margaritas and the Cowboys
The weekend is just going to get a few reps in the first quarter.
Buckets of Beers and the Cowboys
The wide receiver drama. Romo’s injury. Your monthlong bender with Jerry. It’s all behind us now. The season starts today with the Boys vs. the Broncos. Your game plan: a patio table at Frankie’s, where you’ll be rounding up $18 buckets of beers. It’s your preseason, too.
Gratis Margaritas on Henderson
So there’s this Nectar Girl margarita mix. It has 69 calories, which we understand to be... not a lot. But to help you confirm that it both tastes great and is less filling, the guys (yes, guys) behind it are pouring gratis ’ritas until 10pm. The queso remains fully caloried.
In-N-Out Invades Fort Worth
The tornado of delicious West Coast burgers is taking its secret sauce west of Big D. As of today, you can journey to Cowtown and order a Double-Double. Spoiler alert: there may be a line.
Stomping on Grapes and Sipping on Wine
Nothing makes for an intimate day date like you, your bare feet and a huge tub of grapes. Enter Delaney Vineyards in Grapevine, where you’ll pile into a barrel and crush away. Afterward, you’ll unwind with $1 glasses of wine. If you ever were to get a pedicure, well...
One word: sliders. One more word: bourbon. And now, 29 more words: for one night only, Morton’s is pairing appetizers like mini-cheeseburgers and smoked salmon pizza with libations from mint juleps to Old Fashioneds. Don’t ask why. Just go with it.
