The Weekender

Eggnog, Burgers and A Christmas Story

The weekend is moving to the Big East.

Thursday
That New Restaurant on the Katy Trail
GOOD COMPANY

That New Restaurant on the Katy Trail

We noticed something: your runs could use more chicken and waffles. Related: Company Cafe has a new location on the Katy Trail. There’s a sprawling patio filled with picnic tables, ideal for a Christmas ale or a post-jog chicken-fried steak. Try not to spill gravy on your sneakers.

Saturday
Where to Get Your Eggnog Fix
NOGGIN’

Where to Get Your Eggnog Fix

Starting this Saturday, the pub wizards behind Idle Rich, Blackfriar and the Old Monk are rolling out their eggnog, made with a top-secret recipe. We hear the key ingredient’s homemade spiced rum. Pretty sure eggs are in there, too.

Watching A Christmas Story Outside

Mockingbird Station’s rolling out the heaters so you can take in Ralphie and his bunny suit on their outdoor screen. Grab a libation to keep you warm, and stay away from any frozen flagpoles.

Monday
12 Days of Tamales
DIRTY DOZEN

12 Days of Tamales

The 12 days of Christmas are very special to you—especially day nine, with the dancers. But they’ve always needed more salsa. So Urban Taco is cooking up a new tamale every day until Christmas Eve. Santa will love the Potato Zucchini Tamales with a glass of milk.

Dec 12-23, Urban Taco, 3411 McKinney Ave, 214-922-7080

Tuesday
60-Cent Burgers at Burger House
HOUSE CALL

60-Cent Burgers at Burger House

The legendary Burger House is turning 60 years old (but it doesn’t look a day over 20). To celebrate, they’re serving up burgers for 60 cents. We recommend pairing them with a vanilla shake and fries. Feel free to put some candles in your burger.
