Things to do for April 26, 2012
Barbecue, Ben Folds and Umpiring a Margarita Contest
All that she wants, is another weekend, she’s gone tomorrow...
A White Party atop the Joule Hotel
The Joule is kicking off rooftop pool season tomorrow with a white party. Expect lots of seersucker, lots of gratis cocktails and an extremely strict guest list... which we can get you on. Just send an email here for a chance at one of five tickets. Tell them Daddy sent you.
Your New Chocolate Go-To
Mother’s Day is almost here. Consider this your reminder. As for your gift, well, enter LA-originated chocolate shop See’s Candies. Stop by and grab Mom the Large Gold Fancy. It’s a two-pound golden box filled with all sorts of gourmet chocolate. Nothing says you care like nougat.
Ben Folds Symphony
The symphony. Sure, you’ll go in the name of a third date. Also, you’ll go when Ben Folds is playing in the keys section. Yes, the “Rockin’ the Suburbs” guy is taking the stage at Bass Hall tomorrow to jam with the entire Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra. Even the cowbell guy.
Late-breaking competitive barbecuing news: there’s a big cook-off going down in Mesquite this weekend. Which means if you’re looking for the best ribs in the state on Saturday, they’ll all be here. As will Pat Green. He’s performing on one of the four concert stages. You know, when he’s not busy eating brisket.
