Things to do for October 25, 2012

The Weekender

A New Park, a Lamb Kebab and the British Version of Halloween

The weekend’s excited to finally wear a jacket.

Thursday
A Spot for Lebanese on Greenville
CATCHY HOOKAH

A Spot for Lebanese on Greenville

Sometimes you require pitas. And lamb kebabs. And having both in close proximity to hookah smoke. For those times (also known as dinner), there’s this place. It just opened on Greenville, and it’s got plenty of Lebanese foodstuffs, Arabic coffee and ornate hookahs. Smoke ’em if you’ve got ’em.

Now open, Qariah, 1811 Greenville Ave, 972-855-8775

Friday
A Ton of BBQ in Oak Cliff
Q SCORE

A Ton of BBQ in Oak Cliff

There’s this two-day festival you should know about. It involves 1,000 pounds of BBQ, a beer garden, live music and food trucks. Yep, that ought to keep you busy. But if you find yourself with time to kill, there’ll also be an outdoor screening of Bonnie and Clyde. Ribs: a surprisingly good movie snack.

Saturday
And Now, Klyde Warren Park
INSIDE THE PARK

And Now, Klyde Warren Park

There’s a chance you’ve noticed the construction. Putting a freeway underground and building a park on top is hard to miss. But hey, Klyde Warren is finished. And the grand opening: this weekend. On hand: food/drinks, the Polyphonic Spree and Owen Wilson. Guy loves a good picnic.

Halloween. The British Way.
ONCE BRITAIN

Halloween. The British Way.

On Saturday, Candleroom’s throwing a very British Halloween party. Expect bartenders dressed as Austin Powers and waitresses dressed like fembots. So throw on an adequate fake accent and swing by for a gin. Or a spot of tea.

Oct 27, 9pm-2am, Candleroom, 5039 Willis Ave, 214-370-4155

Sunday
Sunday School’s Back at ZaZa
SCHOOL TIES

Sunday School’s Back at ZaZa

The infamous Sunday School brunch: it’s back, and it kicks off this Sunday with a bubbly-fueled Halloween-themed dance party. And no lights. Save for some sparklers. Yep, it’s one of those affairs. We’d suggest wearing a costume. Something champagne-retardant.
