Things to do for June 14, 2012
A Beach Bar, a Spiked Punch and Copious Amounts of Brisket Chili
The weekend is actually big enough for the both of us.
Tonight. The Stoneleigh Hotel. Site of Dallas’s first-ever craft cocktail festival. There’ll be tiki punch on the patio. There’ll be Ricki Derek singing live. There’ll be a penthouse. To party in. And because why not, a few free tickets if you’re interested. Just email here. Free is good.
The inaugural Oak Cliff Film Festival will screen 80 movies this weekend. And we bet they’ll be lovely. But let’s talk about what’s really important. The festival parties. Specifically, the concert at the Texas Theatre that’s combining silent movies and rock music. Don’t forget your lighter.
Your Deep Ellum Beach Bar Is Now Open
Sand. That stuff is great, but sometimes it can get in the most unexpected of places. You know, like the middle of Deep Ellum. Yes, the aptly named Sandbar is now open. And as you’d expect, the tiki drinks, beach volleyball courts and cerveza buckets are all present. Curiously absent, however: the ocean.
You: still need a Father’s Day gift. Dad: been known to enjoy a scotch. Our suggestion: reservations at the Second Floor on Sunday. You’ll be able to get the old man any of their 130 scotches for half off. And special for the occasion: a plate packed with game. Ah, the gift of venison.
Another Nodding Donkey
Your favorite sports bar named after an oil rig is breaking ground on Greenville Avenue. Inside: exactly what you’d think. Shiner served in mason jars, TVs mounted on walls and hot dogs drowned in brisket chili. Lucky hot dogs.
