Your Coffee Table Needs This

This week, we’re hooking you up with a handsome box of inspiration from Phaidon, filled with iconic graphic designs—for 30% off. Display it on your Brooklyn-made coffee table from Yorkwood, who’re taking 25% off their entire line just for Perks members. Lastly, enjoy a bottle of rare scotch from seven legendary distilleries. You’ve earned it...

Block Partying in the Design District

Block Partying in the Design District

There’s a party tonight. Just thought you’d like to know. That is, assuming you’re still into food trucks (Tutta’s Pizza, Belgian Waffle Co.), local beer (Peticolas, Lakewood) and live music. Plus stuff from area vendors, like custom hip flasks and things made from bike chains. Between the two, we’d go hip flask.

A Hitchcock Evening at the Angelika
FOR THE BIRDS

A Hitchcock Evening at the Angelika

You don’t mind being scared. Especially when the weather’s so nice. So head to Mockingbird Station, because every Thursday this month, the Angelika’s showing a Hitchcock film on its outdoor screen. Up tonight: The Birds. Grab a beer, grab some popcorn and plant yourself outside. Where everything’s an aisle seat.

Meet Your New Taco Spot
TORTA REFORM

Meet Your New Taco Spot

Hey. We’ve got news for you. It concerns pork tacos/enchiladas and how now you’ve got even more options for eating them. So, it’s good news. The place is called Soleo, it just opened on Hillcrest, and it’s stuffed with tortas, carne asada and margaritas. Plus a burger, but don’t be that guy.

Now open, Soleo, 8611 Hillcrest Ave, 214-881-7823

Eating at TJ’s. Now a Thing.
GO FISH

Eating at TJ’s. Now a Thing.

You know TJ’s. Fresh fish. Loads of shrimp. Nowhere to sit. Well, that last one’s changing. Because their new spot on Oak Lawn’s got tables, chairs and counter service. So that fish you just bought: now it’s yours to eat. Right away. Instant gratification is good. Especially dipped in tartar sauce.

Saturday
Sundown Launches Brunch
BRUNCHING OUT

Sundown Launches Brunch

You’ve had some good times at Sundown. Definitely some nice dinners. And plenty of rooftop beers. But you’ve never once had brisket benedict there at 11am on a Saturday. Unconscionable, we know. But hey, starting this weekend, Sundown serves brunch. So your future’s looking brighter/more brisket-y already.
