Things to do for May 17, 2012
ZaZa, Pig Roasts and Dancing with DeMarcus Ware
Fat guy in a little weekend.
A Local Food Feast in Addison
So, tomorrow night we’re sending you to Addison. Don’t worry, there’s a perfectly good reason for that. And that reason... ribs. See, set up all this weekend in Addison Circle: beer stands and food tents from over 60 different restaurants (including El Fenix and Dickey’s). Also, live music. For dancing. And rib-eating.
The third (and final) Billy Reid Southern Social concert is taking place this Saturday at Highland Park Village. On the stage: Maren Morris and Sam Robertson. On your plate: squash puppies. In your glass: bourbon. As far as goodbyes go, this should be a smooth one.
ZaZa’s Sunday School is back. Which means the amount of champagne sparklers in your life has just increased by 350%. To celebrate the booze-filled brunch party return: a Halfway to Halloween party. Hey, it rolled off the tongue better than a 48 Days to July 4 party.
Bad news: football season’s four months away. Good news: the Cowboys cheerleaders are free on Sunday. So head to the Omni, where one Iron Chef, one DeMarcus Ware and every Cowboys cheerleader are hosting a night of fine dining and live music. If there’s a tailgating heaven, this is it.
The Pig Roast to End All Pig Roasts
Here’s the deal. The Spiceman and Urbano Cafe are hosting a BYOB pig roast in FM 1410’s spice garden next Thursday (tickets are on sale now). They’ll supply the music, the gumbo and all the succulent pork you can handle. You’ll supply the beverages. Sweet tea works. But beer works better.
