Things to do for November 10, 2011
Clooney, Ziplining and Tweed
The weekend is taking a break to pursue a solo career.
The Lone Star International Film Festival is here again—this year’s has over 82 films playing across Sundance Square. The must-sees: The Descendants (starring Mr. George Clooney) and Rampart, a cop flick with Woody Harrelson. Sadly, your rom-com with ScarJo didn’t make it.
Meet the Food Truck Capital of Dallas
Downtown is being invaded. The intruders: over eight food trucks (including 3 Men and a Taco, the Butcher’s Son, Jack’s Chowhound), which will be dropping by every Saturday in One Arts Plaza. It is food truck weather, after all.
You deserve an adventurous vacation. Some kayaking. A little ziplining. Your destination: the Dallas Convention Center. Here, the travel industry is taking over the place with a 16,000-gallon scuba tank for kayaking and a zipline above the showroom floor. We hear it’s how Sly trained for Cliffhanger.
Riding Bikes, Wearing Tweed
It’s time to dust off your newsboy cap and shine your elbow patches. The annual Dallas Tweed Ride is upon us. You’ll cruise from the Grassy Knoll to the Turner House in Bishop Arts, where you’ll play bocce and sip libations. No, they won’t be served in tweed cups.
A Chili-Fueled Battle Royale
It’s Week 10 of the NFL season, but you’re tailgating at playoff levels. Your next move: heading to Bishop Arts and putting your secret chili recipe up against those from the chefs at Tillman’s and Eno’s. Bring two quarts of your concoction, and your game face.
