75% Off Winter Gear at Billy Reid

This weekend, something big is happening: you’re wearing clothes. (Also, there’s a football game.) First, head here to snag Southern-gentlemanly button-downs, shoes, blazers, winter coats and/or some ties. You’ll also get a gratis glass of bourbon—the unofficial liquor of jacket shopping.

Feb 2-5, Billy Reid, 70 Highland Park Village, 214-346-0010

A Huge Beer Garden on the Trinity River
COWTOWN

A Huge Beer Garden on the Trinity River

From the category of “excuses to head to Cowtown,” we have big news. The largest beer garden on the Trinity River is now open for business. At the Woodshed Smokehouse, you’ll settle in at a riverside picnic table with a pint of Rahr and some smoked brisket. We don’t recommend swimming back to Dallas.

ROAD TO RIO

Partying Like It’s 1983

1983: M*A*S*H ended. The McNugget was introduced. Also: the original Rio Room opened. Thus, this party, where you can dance to mashups of Prince and the Police. No, they won’t be serving McNuggets.

Thursdays, Rio Room, 4515 Travis St, 214-205-6040

Sunday
Watching the Super Bowl at the Granada
SUPER BOWLING

Watching the Super Bowl at the Granada

You’re ready for Sunday—you’ve been Gchatting with Belichick about prevent defense all week. Now you just need the perfect watch party—ideally one with a 30-foot projection screen, buckets of beer and a fajita bar, maybe at a theater. Just spitballing here...

Primebar’s Massive Super Bowl Party
PRIME TIME

Primebar’s Massive Super Bowl Party

Some call it the Super Bowl. Some call it an excuse to party on a Sunday. If you’re more the latter type, head to Primebar. They’re covering their parking lot with a massive tent and rolling out cocktail bars and projection screens. Perfect for watching commercials.

Feb 5, 5pm, Primebar, 2520 Cedar Springs Rd, 214-296-4437
