Things to do for August 30, 2012

The Weekender

A Whole Lot of Beer and a Handful of Sliders

This is not the kind of weekend you bring home to Mom and Dad.

Thursday
Block Partying at Ginger Man
BLOCKBUSTER

Block Partying at Ginger Man

Hey. Just a heads-up that you’ve got dinner plans tonight. At the Ginger Man. Because they’re having a block party with a trio of food trucks. Think mini burgers from Easy Slider. And grilled cheese from Jack’s Chowhound. Oh, and beer. Like, 200 beers.

Shave and a Haircut, Free Shirt
HAIR APPARENT

Shave and a Haircut, Free Shirt

Your grooming list: it’s pretty short. Includes things like “wear shirts.” And “get haircuts.” Well, now it’s even shorter. Because haircuts and shirts have just consolidated. Making that happen: the Boardroom. Procure an annual membership, and you score a free bespoke shirt from Q Custom Clothier. Great. Now off to tackle “wear pants.”

Saturday
A Beach Volleyball Party in Deep Ellum
NET GAIN

A Beach Volleyball Party in Deep Ellum

It’s almost Saturday. And on Saturdays, you play volleyball. On the beach. Which naturally means... Deep Ellum. Sandbar’s got a tournament, if you’re the jumping/spiking type. Or just spectate, eat, drink and listen to a Beastie Boys cover band. If you’re the rocking/rolling type.

Sunday
Drinking a Bunch of DIY Beers
MICROMANAGE

Drinking a Bunch of DIY Beers

And just like that, you’re back in Deep Ellum. This time, to sample a gaggle of homebrewed beers. Because the DEBC is hosting a party/concert to highlight 21 DIY local brewers. They’ll handle the drinks. So your job is easy: sip the stuff, tour the brewery, keep a glass, make some microbrew-related memories.

Monday
A Patio Party at Del Frisco’s Grille
ALFRISCO

A Patio Party at Del Frisco’s Grille

Del Frisco’s Grille means one thing: Latin jazz on the patio. (Though we’d also have accepted “huge steaks.”) Anyway, it’s happening on Labor Day... both the patio jazz and the huge steaks. Plus discounted cocktails and appetizers. Leave no hors d’oeuvre behind.
