The Weekender

Get the Door. It’s Soup.

The weekend’s sick of wearing shorts.

Thursday
Where to Holiday Shop This Weekend
POP CULTURE

Where to Holiday Shop This Weekend

The mall: a great place for gift shopping. Well, 11 months out of the year. Right now, do yourself a favor and keep your distance/try this: Wigwam’s four-day holiday pop-up. They’ll have leather goods, pocketknives, jewelry and a tamale cart. Good luck wrapping a tamale cart.

SOUPED UP

An Oak Cliff Soup-Delivery Service

Soup. So comforting. So hearty. So... convenient, now that Oak Cliff Soup Company is doing delivery. Yup, if you live within the 75208 zip code, you can order their made-from-scratch soups (think creamy butternut squash) to your door. And if you don’t live within the 75208 zip code: time to move.

TORCH BEARER

Torchy’s Comes to Casa Linda

It’s a busy month, so you can’t be bothered with searching far and wide for breakfast tacos and tequila cocktails. Enter Torchy’s. They’re continuing their Dallas takeover with a just-opened Casa Linda store. It’s got carnitas tacos, beef fajitas, beer and other things you... require in bulk this time of year.

Friday
English Pints on Greenville Avenue
LONDON CALLING

English Pints on Greenville Avenue

You remember Rohst. Or maybe you don’t (it did close, after all.) Anyway, that spot’s now the Londoner, which means you’ve got a new haven for dark wood and leather couches, plus fish and chips washed down with cold English pints. Great band name, Cold English Pints.

Sunday
$1 Oysters at TJ’s
FROM SHELL

$1 Oysters at TJ’s

Sundays: a day for rest. Yeah, be sure to tell people that... try to keep the crowds at bay... Because TJ’s is now doing $1 oysters and half-price fish tacos that night. You’ll be there, oyster trays stacked five high and a taco in each hand. Shame you’ve only got the two.
