The Weekender

Eggnog, Suits and Brisket Sandwiches...

The weekend is going to shoot your eye out.

Thursday
Short Ribs and Beer by the Galleria
HOUSE PARTY

Short Ribs and Beer by the Galleria

The Galleria: a real danger zone this time of year. Your escape: Townhouse, a sprawling new joint serving up short ribs, bacon-wrapped shrimp skewers and pecan pork chops. Order one of their 20 draft beers at the marble bar. Then do your shopping online.

Now open, Townhouse, 13270 Dallas Pkwy, 972-300-0986

50% Off Your Next Suit
SALE-ING

50% Off Your Next Suit

Presents: wrapped. Mistletoe: hung. Your best blazer: let’s just say there was an eggnog incident. Good news—Pockets is taking 50% off suits and sport coats from the likes of Zegna and Canali. We’re thinking anything velvet’s a strong buy.

Dec 22-24, Pockets, 46 Highland Park Village, 214-368-1167

Getting Brisket from a Truck
THE BOXER

Getting Brisket from a Truck

Okay, we might have gotten you a gift. Nothing big, just the Munch Box, a new food truck from the Mercury guys. They’re rolling out now with barbecue brisket sandwiches and crème brûlée bowls. Please, no thank-you notes.

Rompope Hot Cocoa at the Pyramid Bar
TEAM COCOA

Rompope Hot Cocoa at the Pyramid Bar

Eggnog: glorious. Hot chocolate: same. Today, you can get the holy union of both at the Pyramid Bar—they’ve created a hybrid concoction with plenty of rum, ’nog and chocolate. No word on candy-cane ham...

Saturday
Your Christmas Meal to Go
PRIME TIME

Your Christmas Meal to Go

It’s not that you don’t want to cook a huge meal, it’s just... that you don’t want to cook a huge meal. Enter Bailey’s Prime Plus—they’ll cook up a 10-person feast with everything from lobster and lamb chops to fresh rolls and chocolate cake. Save your energy for the speed caroling.
