Things to do for January 24, 2013

The Weekender

Scotch, Poetry and a Brisketmobile

Go out there and win one for the weekend.

Thursday
A New Home for Handsome Watches
WRIST ASSURED

A New Home for Handsome Watches

So you didn’t get that Swiss-made watch you wanted for Christmas... hey, that’s okay. Because it’s just down the road at NorthPark now. Stop by the new Omega boutique for Seamaster chronographs, leather-banded De Villes and lots of other things great for telling time/fancying up your wrist.

Smoked Meat by the Truckful
’QUE TURN

Smoked Meat by the Truckful

You’d walk the earth for brisket, burnt ends and spare ribs. But then again, you’d just as soon let a truck bring it to you. Like the new OinknMoo BBQ truck. It’s the one that’s painted to look like a smokehouse and smells of spare ribs. Kinda hard to miss.

Friday
Scotch and Sonnets at the Dram
DRAM JAM

Scotch and Sonnets at the Dram

Nothing’s better than scotch and steak. Well, maybe scotch and poetry (wait, stay with us). See, the Dram is celebrating Burns Night, an homage to that famous Scottish poet Robert Burns. On tap: scotch cocktails, whiskey tastings, some group recitations of poetry... okay, yeah, steak is probably better, but still...

Jan 25, 8pm-2am, The Dram, 2918 N Henderson Ave, 214-826-3726

Saturday
A Donut-Fueled 5K
AMAZING RACE

A Donut-Fueled 5K

Donuts... now there’s a good reason to start running. Not because you ate too many, but because the track is lined with the things. Enter Saturday’s Hypnotic Donut Dash, jog the 5K, eat something jelly-filled, and at the finish line: live music and beer. Also, probably more donuts.

Monday
Beer and Trivia at Windmill Lounge
QUIZ SHOW

Beer and Trivia at Windmill Lounge

You know what goes great with beer... obscure facts about American presidents. Oh, and pretzels. For the former, head to the Windmill Lounge on Monday nights. They’ve got team trivia now. And beer. But that was always there.
