A few essentials now that the leaves are turning: a seriously handsome, fully canvassed tweed jacket, hand-sewn by Brooklyn’s Rifle Quality, for 35% off. A stock of excellent (and rare) wines from around the world. And some sharp wool ties and pocket squares from Pierrepont Hicks—all 40% off.
Things to do for October 11, 2012
Retro Dodgeball and a Red River BBQ Shootout
The weekend knows what you did last weekend.
A Downtown BBQ Showdown
Big weekend. Huge rivalry. Lots at stake. Also, we heard something about a football game... But the real draw’s at Main Street Garden. Because four pitmasters from Texas and four from Oklahoma will compete in a BBQ showdown. Your job: eat some ribs. Drink some beer. And support the home team.
A Lakewood House of Latin Sandwiches
Latin sandwiches. Those are a thing. And now there’s a place dedicated to them. Think Peruvian ham, pulled pork with pineapple and chorizo tortas. So, yeah, stuff you’d like for lunch/dinner/right now. Plus a bunch of coffee and fresh juices. For those post-pork lows.
Dodgeballing Like It’s 1985
You remember playing dodgeball as a kid. The frizzy hair... the leg warmers... John Cusack. Wait, that was the ’80s. But hey, still applies. Because Dallas Dodgeball’s hosting an ’80s-themed tournament this Saturday. So dress the part, and aim for the nearest neon headband.
Block Partying in the Arts District
One Arts Plaza is hosting a block party to celebrate fall. Yep, good ol’ 80-degree fall. There you’ll find live music and local vendors, plus a cocktail competition and cooking demos. And yes, samples. We’d never let you go hungry.
Goodfriend Turns One, Drinks Beer
You love birthdays. And beer. And combining the two: magnificent. So check out Goodfriend’s first birthday party. They’ll be serving limited-edition brews from the likes of Stone, Great Divide and Ommegang, plus live music. Oh, and burgers. Be a sport and bring a candle.
