We heard you’re headed to the beach. Here’s 20% off a custom-tailored surfboard, c/o Swami’s and Paul Smith, to help. Also: limited-edition boat shoes from Rancourt and 28% off the best damn umbrella in the world from Blunt. Hey, when it rains, it pours.
Things to do for May 24, 2012
An Extra-Long Weekend of Tequila and Blackjack
The bigger they come, the harder they weekend.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
