Things to do for July 19, 2012

The Weekender

Hot Towels, Breaking Bad and Honoring the Belgians

Once a weekend, always a weekend.

Thursday
Half-Price Shaves and Trims
’STACHE HOUSE

Half-Price Shaves and Trims

Men have needs. Like, say, haircuts. And straight-razor shaves. And beard trims. And when such services are 50% off, even better. Right now, you can score a half-price annual membership to the brand-new Gents Place in Dallas. Think of it as an investment. For your hot-towel future.

Cigars and Rum at the Living Room Bar
RUM SOLO

Cigars and Rum at the Living Room Bar

Cuba. Sounds like a good time. It’s also sort of far away and not that easy to get to. So the next best thing: Thursday night at the Living Room Bar. There’s Latin music, hand-rolled cigars, rotating liquor flights and, best of all, no need to pass through customs.

Saturday
Another Vehicle Full of Tacos
KEEP ON TRUCKING

Another Vehicle Full of Tacos

It’s a new week, and with it, another taco truck. In this case: Taco Party. Their specialty: traditional Mexico City fare like marinated-overnight al pastor and a Baja-style fish taco topped with jicama relish. Now there’s something you don’t eat every day.

Sunday
Breaking Bad on Sundown’s Rooftop
BAD COMPANY

Breaking Bad on Sundown’s Rooftop

The best way to watch Breaking Bad: with $3 beers and $4 tacos. And Sundays, that’s all happening on a rooftop. The one at Sundown. So sit back, angle toward the huge projection screen and enjoy some good old-fashioned fun. Or meth dealing and murder.

Wednesday
Celebrating Belgium with a Beer Dinner
WAFFLE HOUSE

Celebrating Belgium with a Beer Dinner

Sure, you’re still recovering from Bastille Day. But hey, don’t sleep on Belgium. Their independence day’s important, too. And the Libertine knows this. So they’re throwing a beer-fueled, five-course dinner (think smoked herring and Belgian waffles). And you’re invited. Which is great. Belgium’s, like, your sixth favorite European country.
