The Weekender

One of Those Fried-Chicken and Champagne Weekends

That’s it, the weekend is turning this damn car around.

Thursday
Two-Buck Fried Chicken at Norma’s Cafe
TWO LEGIT

Two-Buck Fried Chicken at Norma’s Cafe

Norma’s: celebrating their 56th birthday today. You: a big fan of blowing out candles. Also: things that are fried. To commemorate the special occasion, stop by the diner and feast on chicken-fried steak and mashed potatoes for under two dollars. Or under 40 nickels.

BILL OF RIGHTS

40% Off Billy Reid

Billy Reid’s got your new summer clothes, and a bunch of them are 40% off. Which means you can score some marked-down Savannah wingtips to pair with a cotton polo and still have money left over for a gentlemanly button-down. Pants are, of course, optional.

Jun 21-24, Billy Reid, 70 Highland Park Village, 214-346-0010

Friday
A Bucket of Sissy’s Chicken to Go
BUCKET LIST

A Bucket of Sissy’s Chicken to Go

Four words: Sissy’s fried-chicken takeaway. Thirty more words: starting tomorrow, you can stop by this Southern kitchen’s daily happy hour for $6 Old Fashioneds and to-go buckets overflowing with their buttermilk-brined fried chicken. Buttermilk, it’s a glorious thing.

Daily, 5-7pm, Sissy’s, 2929 Henderson Ave, 214-827-9900

Saturday
A Couch Worthy of the Queen
LONDON CALLING

A Couch Worthy of the Queen

There’s a British gent off Henderson who’s crafting some handsome handmade furniture. The kind of stuff that’s great if you have a study. Or a living room. Think bookcases made of English timber and tufted couches upholstered with the Union Jack. Pippa has to sit somewhere.

Sunday
A Meal Consisting Mostly of Champagne
THE WILD BRUNCH

A Meal Consisting Mostly of Champagne

If you’ve got one complaint about Sunday afternoons, it’s that they don’t feel like Saturday nights. That changes this weekend. 31’s Sundaze brunch party features eggs Benedict and absurd amounts of champagne. Also, a DJ. And lax rules about dancing on your table.

Sundays, 2-5pm, 31, 87 Highland Park Village, 214-420-3900
