The Weekender

Local Beer, Gourmet Hot Dogs and a Couple Top Chefs

The weekend really ties the room together.

Thursday
Here’s a Big Sale at Hadleigh’s
BUYER’S MARKET

Here’s a Big Sale at Hadleigh’s

Handcrafted clothing looks good. Handcrafted clothing fits good. And today through Sunday, handcrafted clothing is cheap... er. Thank Hadleigh’s for that. Because their tent sale means you’re getting outfitted with shirts, sport coats and slippers for less than usual. And you love that sport-coat-and-slippers look.

Aug 9-12, Hadleigh’s, 74 Highland Park Village, 214-526-3777

Dallas’s Newest Brewery Is...
WHEEL OF FORTUNE

Dallas’s Newest Brewery Is...

In local beer news, we’ve got more of it. This time, from FireWheel Brewing Co. Their unfiltered, hoppy Pale Ale is currently in kegs at Spec’s and Sigel’s. But in case you normally don’t buy your beer by the keg, it’ll be available in bars soon, too. Not three hours from now, but still, soon.

DOUBLE TIME

Two Top Chefs Are Cooking You Dinner

Top Chef Tiffany Derry’s inviting you to dinner. Along with her Top Chef pal Carla Hall (hey, that’s the company you keep). Expect tag-teamed foodstuffs like tuna roulade, heirloom tomato soup and crispy pork belly with okra and corn fritters. Oh, and wine pairings. One can’t live on beer alone.

Aug 9-10, 7pm, $125, Private | Social, 3232 McKinney Ave, reserve at 214-754-4744

Saturday
Handcrafted Hot Dogs at White Rock
DOG DAY AFTERNOON

Handcrafted Hot Dogs at White Rock

Brian Luscher... Good chef. Runs the Grape. Makes a great burger. But today, we’re talking about hot dogs. Specifically, Brian’s new Post Oak Red Hots. Because they’re of the handcrafted, smoked, fresh-baked-bun variety. And they debut this Saturday at White Rock Local Market. That’s your cue to attend and taste-test.

Tuesday
Rockstar Launches Brown Bag Breakfasts
BREAKFAST CLUB

Rockstar Launches Brown Bag Breakfasts

Breakfast. The most important meal of the day. Rockstar Bakeshop knows this. So the whoopie pie mavens are dishing out brown bags full of muffins on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Muffins like blueberry-lemon and chocolate-maple-bacon. Plus fruit. And iced coffee. Which, smartly enough, is poured into a cup instead of a brown bag.

Tuesdays at 5302 Greenville Ave, Thursdays at 8123 Preston Rd, Rockstar Bakeshop, 214-564-9843
