The Weekender

Ping-Pong, Tapas Trucks and Deep Ellum’s Birthday

The thrill of the weekend... the agony of the week.

Thursday
A Truck Full of Tapas
SPAIN THRESHOLD

A Truck Full of Tapas

You may be familiar with Si Tapas. Quaint little house, nice patio... tapas. Well, now they’ve got a truck, and it’s roaming all over town serving things like grilled-pork sandwiches and patatas bravas. That sounds like lunch. Also, that sounds like brave potatoes.

To-Go Bloody Mary Mix from Black Swan
SOMETHING ABOUT MARY

To-Go Bloody Mary Mix from Black Swan

Next week: mostly filled with eating/drinking activities. So should you require the services of, say, a restorative pre-/post-Thanksgiving Bloody Mary, Black Swan’s got you covered. They’re batching up whole gallons of their spicy and savory mix. Order it by Saturday, and you’ll be adding it to vodka early next week. Or basting with it.

Friday
Playing Ping-Pong on Your Lunch Break
PING DYNASTY

Playing Ping-Pong on Your Lunch Break

You love a good ping-pong-fueled lunch break. But eating at the YMCA... it’s getting old. So good news: there’s now a table tennis tournament every Friday in Klyde Warren Park. Which means tomorrow, you can escape the office and head to the outdoor tables in the commons. Consider it a business trip.

A Store Full of Comfy Places to Sit
CHAIR APPARENT

A Store Full of Comfy Places to Sit

Given all the turkey-related lounging in your near future, you should really take stock of your nap-worthy furniture. If it’s looking a bit inhospitable, there’s this: a new Bishop Arts store that’s peddling tweed couches, overstuffed chairs and coffee tables. Hey, your leftovers have to sit somewhere, too.

Saturday
Deep Ellum Brewery Turns One
ROLLING IN THE DEEP

Deep Ellum Brewery Turns One

Cheers to happy coincidences. You see, it’s beer week, and it’s Deep Ellum’s first birthday. Nice how that worked out. Join the Deep Ellum guys to celebrate one year of making suds, and be there for the unveiling of their oak-aged Pollenator beer. Hey, we know just the beverage to toast with.
