Things to do for October 04, 2012
Alfred Hitchcock, Pork Tacos and a Beer-Soaked Block Party
How many fingers is the weekend holding up?
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
