Things to do for November 08, 2012

The Weekender

A Lakeside Party, a Billy Reid Sale and a Place to Eat Hot Dogs

The weekend always wins the popular vote.

Thursday
Double the Nick & Sam’s Grill
NICK KNACK

Double the Nick & Sam’s Grill

You know Nick & Sam’s Grill. That’s right, they serve a mean steak. Well, now there’s another one. The just-opened Park Cities location is slinging pizza, chops, steak-related sandwiches and the occasional sushi roll. Yes, technically that would qualify as a surf and turf.

40% Off Billy Reid
REID ON

40% Off Billy Reid

Chances are, you could use some new fall clothes. Perhaps a nice corduroy jacket or something in the cardigan sweater category. Yeah, that’d be nice/perfect for brisk-weather wassailing. And lucky for you, Billy Reid’s got both, plus other cold-weather wares, for up to 40% off. Which is great, because wassailing isn’t cheap.

Ongoing, Billy Reid, 70 Highland Park Village, 214-346-0010

Wood-Fired Hot Dogs in Lakewood
WAG THE DOG

Wood-Fired Hot Dogs in Lakewood

Hot dogs aren’t just for ball games. Sometimes, they’re for lunch. Like at Jerry’s, the new hot dog, sausage and burger joint that just opened in Lakewood. So stop in, order something wood-fired and then cover it with a bunch of toppings like mushrooms and pineapple. Or ketchup and mustard. That works, too.

Friday
Excellent News on the Gin Front
GIN BLOSSOM

Excellent News on the Gin Front

Look, new gin. It’s called Ford’s and it comes from guys like Simon Ford and local mixologist Jason Kosmas. You can find it right now at Sigel’s, or bars like Marquee, Private | Social and the Cedars Social. Apparently, it has hints of juniper, coriander and citrus, but you’ll probably want to fact-check that yourself.

Saturday
Celebrating a Lake. With Some Beer.
THE LAKE SHOW

Celebrating a Lake. With Some Beer.

You’ve been conditioned to believe that lakes are for summer. But... nope. Wrong. Total myth. Because this weekend, the White Rock Lake Festival’s got tons of local bands, plus beer (always a fine incentive) and food trucks from the likes of Ssahm and Gandolfo’s. Maybe skip the swimming.
