Things to do for October 13, 2011

The Weekender

A Weekend of Brunch, Ducatis and Mariachi Bands

The weekend and the weekday are starring in a buddy cop flick.

Thursday
Jakes. Now on Henderson.
MOVING ON UP

Jakes. Now on Henderson.

Ah, Jakes: the schooners, the burgers, the lifesaving fries. Now they’re opening a spot on Henderson with glass garage doors that open to a brick patio—the perfect location for beers and a Red Steer burger. It is patio season, after all.

Now open, Jakes, 2422 Henderson Ave, 214-826-5253

Friday
Pedicabs, Now a Thing
THE CYCLE

Pedicabs, Now a Thing

This weekend you may find yourself stranded in Uptown. The cabs: MIA. Your friend: not wearing her power-walking heels. Your move: calling these guys, a few SMU students who will pedal you anywhere from the Katy Trail Ice House to the AAC. Bring cash. And maybe a portable boom box or something.

Saturday
Over 30 Ducatis. A DJ. And You.
ITALIAN STALLIONS

Over 30 Ducatis. A DJ. And You.

Good news: there’s something sexy and Italian in the Design District. Bad news: it’s not Monica Bellucci. Good news: the guys from Advanced Motorsports are showing off over 30 Ducati bikes and cars and giving out prizes as a DJ serenades these rockets on wheels. Go ahead, request “Danger Zone.”

Oct 15, 10am-3pm, no cost, OctoberFAST, 135 Leslie St, 214-466-6540

Sunday
The Return of Terilli’s Brunch
THE WILD BRUNCH

The Return of Terilli’s Brunch

You know the old story. Italian jazz spot opens. Spot burns down. Spot reopens with a new rooftop. And then finally, spot launches brunch. Now, Terilli’s is covering that last chapter by serving up Italian Sausage Omelets and Crab Cake Eggs Benedict. Consider your Bloody the appendix.

Gratis Tequila and a Mariachi Band
THE THREE

Gratis Tequila and a Mariachi Band

Your favorite Tex-Mex spot in One Arts, Jorge’s, is celebrating its third birthday with a mariachi band, gratis tequila tastings and their own salsa team. Yes, that’s a team dedicated to bringing you different salsas. No word on if the queso squad will show up.

Oct 16, 11am-close, Jorge’s, 1722 Routh St, 214-720-2211
