Things to do for August 11, 2011

The Weekender

In-N-Out, Gratis Margaritas and the Cowboys

The weekend is just going to get a few reps in the first quarter.

Thursday
Buckets of Beers and the Cowboys
KICKOFF

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.

Thursdays, 7pm-close, Frankie’s, 3227 McKinney Ave, 214-999-8932

Gratis Margaritas on Henderson
LOVELY ’RITAS

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
CALIFORNICATION

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.

Saturday
Stomping on Grapes and Sipping on Wine
VINO

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...

Wednesday
Sliders and Mint Juleps at Morton’s
BOURBON 101

Sliders and Mint Juleps at Morton’s

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.

Aug 17, 6-7:30pm, $45, Morton’s, 2222 McKinney Ave, 214-741-2277
