Things to do for February 24, 2012
Tacos, Roller Derby and a Massive Oscar Party
The weekend has so many people it wants to thank.
Tacos for Lunch in the Design District
You’ll use Taco Stop one of two ways. For a working lunch of rib eye tacos. Or for a breakfast taco or a Hangover Helper (a stew with beef broth and cilantro) the morning after a night of regrettable decisions. Not that you have any idea what we mean...
Like a Country Club for Wine
You may be familiar with the off-the-beaten-path wine wholesaler Graileys. If not, you will be: their new membership program nets you gratis weekly tastings, a private wine locker and access to their wine bar. Grape-stomping lessons not included.
Mardi Gras, in Food Truck Form
Fat Tuesday has come and gone—your hurricane-holding arm is still on ice. But the Mardi Gras spirit lives on with Cajun Tailgators, a four-wheeled tribute to Bourbon Street, serving up sausage gumbo and the Debris, a roast beef sandwich smothered in gravy. As all good things are.
Finally, Roller Derby Season Is Here
Roller derby: still keeping roller skates relevant after all these years. This weekend, the Assassination City Roller Derby season is kicking off at Fair Park. Grab a beer as the Bombshell Brigade takes the rink. Bring your foam finger.
Watching the Oscars on the Big Screen
Sunday night, they’ll be broadcasting Hollywood’s little black-tie affair on the Texas Theatre’s massive screen. Before they dim the lights, you’ll want to grab a martini and get settled into the vintage seats. No word on a cameo from Uggie.
