Things to do for March 01, 2012
Frito Pies, Fireworks and Alec Baldwin
Everybody wants to rule the weekend.
So your favorite shopping center named after a bird is hosting local bands on the first and third Thursdays of every month. Up tonight: a little group that goes by the name Club Wood. All you need to know: they have one sax player and zero keytarists.
Celebratory Frito Pies at Norma’s
This year, your good old friend Texas is turning 176. Naturally, you’re going to want to celebrate. The spot: Norma’s. They’re serving up some birthday chicken-fried steak and slices of pecan pie and Texas Frito pie for 99 cents each. Best. Goody bag. Ever.
Alec Baldwin. He cracked you up on 30 Rock. He mesmerized you in Glengarry. He moved you almost to the point of tears with Schweddy Balls. And now, he’s meeting with you at the Opera House to discuss every detail of his career, craft... and Words with Friends strategy.
Christening a Bridge with Fireworks
The Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge is opening this weekend with a huge soiree. There’ll be libations. There’ll be dancing. There’ll be... steel suspension cables. And to wrap it all up, a massive, musical fireworks finale. Ain’t no party like a new bridge party...
Your St. Paddy’s Warm-Up
St. Paddy’s Day might be weeks away, but your training... it starts now. Head to the Second Floor bar and begin stretching out your whiskey-sipping muscles with a four-way tasting flight of Ireland’s finest (think Jameson 12, Redbreast, Bushmills Black Bush). And you know what they say about practice.
