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.

May 18, 6pm-midnight; May 19, noon-midnight; May 20, noon-5pm; $5-$15, Taste Addison, 4970 Addison Circle Dr, Addison, 972-450-2851

Saturday
The Last of the Billy Reid Concerts
GRAND FINALE

The Last of the Billy Reid Concerts

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.

May 19, 6pm, no cost, Billy Reid, 70 Highland Park Village, 214-346-0010

Sunday
The Return of ZaZa’s Sunday School
LEARNING EXPERIENCE

The Return of ZaZa’s Sunday School

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.

May 20, noon-4pm, $50, Hotel ZaZa, 2332 Leonard St, reserve at 214-550-9500

Dinner with the Cowboys Cheerleaders
PRESEASON ACQUISITION

Dinner with the Cowboys Cheerleaders

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.

Next Thursday
The Pig Roast to End All Pig Roasts
GARDEN PARTY

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.
