The Weekender

An Extra-Long Weekend of Tequila and Blackjack

The bigger they come, the harder they weekend.

Thursday
100% More Taco Joint
JOINT VENTURE

100% More Taco Joint

Because you can never have too many taco options: the new Taco Joint on Mockingbird. It’s just like the Peak Street original, except it’s open on Sundays, serves breakfast tacos for dinner and has frozen margaritas. Okay, we probably should’ve led with that last one.

Now open, Taco Joint, 6434 E Mockingbird Ln, 214-821-8226

A Quarter-Century of Sfuzzi
25 TO LIFE

A Quarter-Century of Sfuzzi

Flash back to 1987. Sfuzzi first opens. It’s filled with stiff drinks, warm flatbreads and tremendous jean jackets. Flash forward to 8:30pm tonight: Sfuzzi turns 25. And to celebrate, a new patio, some live music and a bunch of casino tables. Suddenly, you feel a craps heater coming on.

May 24, 8:30pm-2am, no cost, Sfuzzi, 2533 McKinney Ave, 214-953-0300

Saturday
It’s a Great Day for a Music Festival
LAWN AND ORDER

It’s a Great Day for a Music Festival

Picture yourself sitting on a patch of soft green grass. In your left hand: a margarita. In your right hand: a Tiff’s Treats cookie. In front of you: an Eisley and Centro-matic concert. Okay, now, imagine this all happening Saturday in a garden downtown. Because it is.

Sunday
A Concert on Lake Lewisville
SHORE SHOT

A Concert on Lake Lewisville

Hidden Cove Marina. Great place to dock a schooner. Or on Sunday, to see a live concert from the O’s. Yes, they’re doing a set on the shore there this weekend, so if you’re in the area, sail by. And if you get hungry, there’ll be food trucks. Also, a lake full of fish.

Silently Judging Some Margaritas
GAVEL-BANGING

Silently Judging Some Margaritas

There’s a frozen-margarita face-off going down in Bishop Arts on Sunday. They need a judge. You’re free (or you’ll make yourself free). Over 20 spots will be competing, including the Standard Pour and Iron Cactus. Remember, be firm, be fair and leave room for the street tacos.
