Things to do for February 16, 2012

The Weekender

Crawfish, Alice in Wonderland and Italian Suits

Nothing is certain but death, taxes and the weekend.

Thursday
Friday
A Tavern Worthy of the Mad Hatter
GOING MAD

A Tavern Worthy of the Mad Hatter

And now, the first (also: only) North Dallas pub inspired by Lewis Carroll: the Mad Tavern. It’s a neighborhood bar replete with a white rabbit in the rafters, an upside-down table on the ceiling and 125 beers on tap. Perfect for a Jester King pint with Disney execs (or talking cats).

Opening Feb 17, Mad Tavern, 1801 Preston Rd, Ste 102, 972-733-0363

Your Next Italian Suit: From Hadleigh’s
SLAM TRUNK

Your Next Italian Suit: From Hadleigh’s

The dapper gents at Hadleigh’s are hosting a little party for their friends from Cesare Attolini, an Italian line of suits, button-downs and blazers. You were looking for something to wear to your dinner party at Clooney’s place at Lake Como.

Feb 17-18, by appointment only, Hadleigh’s, 74 Highland Park Village, 214-770-4743

Sunday
500 Pounds of Crawfish in Bishop Arts
LIKE A HURRICANE

500 Pounds of Crawfish in Bishop Arts

This Sunday, in honor of Fat Tuesday, you’ll grab a cold hurricane and take in a parade and a Cajun band as you feast on a quarter-ton of crawfish. Save some for everyone else.

Wednesday
A Food Truck Happy Hour
TRUCK YEAH

A Food Truck Happy Hour

Consider this the classy version of hanging out in a liquor store parking lot: at Sigel’s on Greenville, they’re letting the guys from Rock and Roll Tacos and Easy Slider serve you dinner outside. Go ahead, take a seat on the curb and eat a brisket slider.

Wednesdays, 5-8pm, Sigel’s, 5757 Greenville Ave, 214-739-4012

Next Friday
York Street’s Old Chef Goes Underground
GOING UNDER

York Street’s Old Chef Goes Underground

You remember York Street—you still have flashbacks from their Buffalo New York strip. Well the chef behind that Lakewood haunt is hosting a five-course BYOB dinner next Friday at the culinary lab, My Private Chef. Details of the menu are a secret. But maybe bring a bib just in case...
