Things to do for March 08, 2012
Four Stories of Dancing, a Whoopie Pie Truck and Other Weekend Essentials
The weekend just introduced the third-generation weekend.
Four Stories of Dancing and Tattoos
Tonight, the guys from Glass are quietly opening the doors to their latest project, Red Lights. This four-story, Shanghai-style temple of dancing is outfitted with dragon statues, an art gallery, a rooftop and the very necessary tattoo shop. Just in case you want to make a really, really bad decision.
Direct from NYC: These Cupcakes
First, some good news: there’s a new bakery in town, serving up the usuals like red velvet cupcakes and brownies. Now, some potentially less good news: it’s all gluten-free. But let’s focus on the good news.
St. Pat’s at the Library Bar
Irish whiskey. Four-leaf clovers. Leprechauns. But enough about last night—let’s talk St. Patrick’s Day. The Library Bar is whipping up shepherd’s pie and Emerald Isle martinis (gin, green crème de menthe and mint bitters) every day leading up to this glorious holiday. Wearing green: totally not required.
Yep, you read that right. This truck comes from the baking gurus at Rockstar Bakeshop, and rolls out tomorrow at Dowdy Studio. You’ll feast on a Sweet Emotion (red velvet) or a Proud Mary (their PB&J whoopie pie) as you toss back a couple gratis beers. Tina Turner would want you to have this.
A New Brunch Spot in Oak Cliff
Brunch: easily one of your top two meals that end with “unch.” Related: this weekend, Campo begins serving it—think croque-madames with fried eggs, housemade mortadella with poached eggs, and a Bloody Mary made with oysters. Which happens to be your favorite drink that ends with “Mary.”
