SALE-ING

75% Off Suits and Jackets at Pockets

Your Valentine’s Day date: less than a month away. Meaning: a new suit might come in handy. Luckily, Pockets is taking 75% off suits, button-downs, shoes and jackets from the likes of Zegna and Canali. You’re still on your own for the flowers.

Finally, Tacos Delivered by Motorcycle
MEALS ON WHEELS

Finally, Tacos Delivered by Motorcycle

Let’s say you’re hungry—like, brisket taco hungry. And let’s say you’re at home—Justified doesn’t watch itself. You’ll call up Moto Taco and, soon, a man on a motorcycle will drive over and deliver your tacos (made by the guy behind Hacienda). No, you can’t ride in the sidecar.

Friday
$1 Drinks at the Chesterfield
DOLLAR STORE

$1 Drinks at the Chesterfield

The three-martini lunch: still a thing. In fact, if you take your client to Downtown’s newest cocktail den, the Chesterfield, you can eat braised short ribs and drink cocktails for a buck each. Bonus: it’ll look great on your expense report.

Saturday
Cooking with a Top Chef
BACK TO SCHOOL

Cooking with a Top Chef

You’re no stranger to the culinary arts—your PB&Js are world-famous. So when Private | Social’s chef is throwing down in the Dallas Farmers Market kitchen and offering advice, well... you’re in. Make sure to take your apron to the cleaners.
