Things to do for October 20, 2011
A Rooftop Model Party and Golfing with Troy Aikman
So a priest, a rabbi and the weekend walk into a bar...
Barely Legal Chicken on Henderson
We have a secret. It involves you, and some chicken. Go to the back door of a certain late-night taco den and give it a knock. A person will appear with a roasted chicken, tortillas and the necessary toppings. Slip him a 20 and it’s yours. Tell no one.
Rooftop Partying with Models
There’s a chill in the air. But you still have time for one last rooftop party. Venture to the Joule, where you’ll sip gratis tequila cocktails as runway models pass by. Then adjourn to their DJ-fueled after-party at the underground club, PM. Goodbyes can be so hard.
Knox Street is shutting down this Saturday and letting local artists roll out tents filled with paintings and sculptures. Here you’ll drink wine and grab a couple lobster shooters from Abacus as cover band Special Edition plays in the middle of the street. Practice stage diving now.
You and Troy Aikman. Speed Golfing.
Your golf game has always lacked two things: a stopwatch and a Hall of Fame quarterback. But now, if you head to the Golf Club of Dallas on Monday, you can play speed golf against Troy Aikman. Those bulky championship rings should slow him down.
Chicken-Fried Steak Day Is Here
Finally, the state government is focusing on what really matters: chicken-fried steak. They’ve declared Wednesday a special day to honor the delicacy, and so Norma’s is dishing out free pies with every order. The push for National Queso Month begins now.
