The Weekender

Cheap Tequila, Smoked Meat and Naked Story Time

Someone’s got a bad case of the weekends.

Thursday
This Truck Serves Slushes
COLD FRONT

This Truck Serves Slushes

Sure is hot. So hot it makes you want to bury your head in ice. Or at least drink something really cold. Like frozen lemonade. Or a frozen Arnold Palmer. Or a coconut slush with pineapple and ginger. Lucky for you, there’s a new truck for that. It’s called SlushWorks. Rum floater not included.

Friday
Naked Girls Reading Stories
CHICK LIT

Naked Girls Reading Stories

Imagine sitting in a dark room listening to fairy tales. Not bad. But maybe not the best way to spend a Friday night. Now, picture it again. But with naked women in reading glasses. There, that’s better. And as far as staring goes... well, you’d be rude not to.

The Mecca Moves to Lakewood
ROLL CALL

The Mecca Moves to Lakewood

You might know the Mecca for its hearty breakfasts and famous cinnamon rolls. Well, they still have those. It’s just that, starting Friday, they’re trading west for east and opening in Lakewood. And for the first time in 74 years, they’ll serve dinner. Yes, you can have cinnamon rolls for dinner.

Soft-opens Aug 17, The Mecca, 5815 Live Oak St

Sunday
Fearing’s BBQ-Fueled Anniversary
FIVE ALIVE

Fearing’s BBQ-Fueled Anniversary

This Sunday, Fearing’s turns five. And the fine-dining spot is celebrating its birthday a lot like you do. With an alfresco barbecue and lots of smoked meat. Plus beer, margaritas and world BBQ champ Chris Lilly manning the grill. His basting: a thing of beauty.

Aug 19, 6:30pm, $55, Fearing’s, 2121 McKinney Ave, reserve at 214-922-4817

Tuesday
Your Tuesday Half-Price Tequila Spot
SALTED AWAY

Your Tuesday Half-Price Tequila Spot

Tequila. Okay, now that we have your attention, Komali’s serving half-price tequila drinks every Tuesday. There’s the Tamarind Margarita, or try something less... tamarind-y. Say, the Caliente Clementine with tangerine puree and habanero. You always knew there was something you liked about Tuesday.

Tuesdays, Komali, 4152 Cole Ave, Ste 106, 214-252-0200
