Things to do for June 28, 2012

The Weekender

Deep Ellum, Dirk Nowitzki and James Dean by the Pool

Only the weekend can prevent forest fires.

Thursday
Boys Named Sue and Beers Named Ellum
DEEP END

Boys Named Sue and Beers Named Ellum

You’re familiar with Deep Ellum’s beers. The IPA. That delightful Rye Pils. Well, they taste even better at the source. So tonight, you’ll visit the brewery’s beer garden for cold pints from the mothership. Plus, free hot dogs and a live set from Boys Named Sue. Fun fact: none are actually named Sue.

Poolside Movies at the Belmont
THE DIVE IN

Poolside Movies at the Belmont

If you’ve said it once, you’ve said it a hundred times. Today’s movie theaters lack a good high dive. Well, so does the Belmont’s pool. But it does have a projector. And a bar. So grab a beer and settle in for a screening of Rebel Without a Cause. Also, laps.

Saturday
Now Batting: Dirk Nowitzki... zki... zki
SLUGGING PERCENTAGE

Now Batting: Dirk Nowitzki... zki... zki

Dirk Nowitzki: an NBA world champ. Also: a very average baseball player. But still, go out and support the guy, because his charity’s hosting a home run derby/baseball game on Saturday. And the rosters include a bunch of current and former Mavs and Cowboys. Our advice: bet the under.

Jun 30, gates open 3pm, $7-$16, Dr Pepper Ballpark, 7300 Rough Riders Trail, Frisco, more info here

Sunday
A Bunch of One-Buck Bellinis
’PAGNE TOLERANCE

A Bunch of One-Buck Bellinis

Bellinis. For $1. Yes, this is really happening. Starting Sunday, and going through July, Patrizio has dollar peach and champagne cocktails. They’re cold. They’re refreshing. They’re... well, they’re 100 pennies for 31 straight days. Better open a tab.

Tuesday
A Fourth of July Rooftop Pool Party
CROWN JOULE

A Fourth of July Rooftop Pool Party

The Joule’s ringing in July 4 with a nocturnal party at its rooftop pool. And all that that entails. Like drinks, linen pants and DJ Parker Lawson. Plus, views of downtown. But, no swimming. Well, no sanctionable swimming. Still, better wear your waterproof tux just in case.
