Tacos and Tequila on Haskell Avenue

Say hello to E Bar, your new home for Mexican fare on Haskell Avenue. It’s one of those neighborhood-y spots. The kind with carne asada tacos, enchiladas and grilled shrimp. Plus a 25-foot bar stocked with tequilas. Also: a patio. Your favorite.

Now open, E Bar, 1901 N Haskell Ave, Ste 120, 214-824-3227

Filling Your Closet with Custom Shirts
SHIRT SO GOOD

Filling Your Closet with Custom Shirts

You wear shirts... roughly six days a week. So they may as well fit you like a glove. Or a handmade, perfectly tailored shirt. Here to help: Culwell & Son. The men’s shop is giving you big savings on nine colors’ worth of bespoke shirts. We’re partial to the eight that aren’t helio.

Through Sep 15, Culwell & Son, 6319 Hillcrest Ave, 214-522-7000

Friday
The Quietest Disco of All Time
SILENT NIGHT

The Quietest Disco of All Time

Dancing... Flashing lights... Loud music... Polyester... Yes, we’re talking about a disco. Except in this case, a silent one (and with fewer leisure suits). See, the Green Elephant’s hosting a headphone-wearing silent disco Friday. With fire dancers. And lasers. And live art. And people using their inside voices.

Saturday
Eating a Bunch of Insanely Hot Donuts
FIRE IN THE HOLE

Eating a Bunch of Insanely Hot Donuts

Mark your calendars. Hypnotic Donuts is hosting a “World’s Spiciest Donut” eating contest. The ingredients: think habaneros, Tabasco and those pesky ghost chilies (in frosting form). Win, and you get a trophy. Also, one free jalapeño-topped donut every week for the rest of 2012. Or until you get sick of eating jalapeño donuts.

Monday
Cheesesteaks on a Motherf**king Truck
HERO WORSHIP

Cheesesteaks on a Motherf**king Truck

Here’s some breaking cheesesteak news: we’ve got more of them. And they’ve gone mobile, courtesy of those fine grilled-cheese purveyors at Ruthie’s. Come Monday, they’ll be at Preston and Frankford serving things like cheesesteaks with bacon and blue cheese. So... a light lunch.
