The Weekender

Queso and Gumbo and Beer and That’s Your Weekend

The weekend still delivers on Saturday.

Thursday
More Mexican in Mockingbird Station
THE WHOLE ENCHILADA

More Mexican in Mockingbird Station

There’s queso on the horizon. Also: tacos and tequila. Yup, your weekend essentials. And you’ll find them at the just-opened Café Herrera in Mockingbird Station. Stop by tonight for sizzling beef fajitas, then come back Sunday for a tequila brunch. Maybe some eggs, too.

65% Off Stanley Korshak
SUIT YOURSELF

65% Off Stanley Korshak

Winter is coming. Or leaving... eh, it’s hard to tell sometimes. Point is: you can never have too many sport coats and shawl cardigans. So it’s a good thing Stanley Korshak’s selling a bunch of them for up to 65% off. Pass the savings on to some pants.

Saturday
V-Day Shopping. With Plenty of Beer.
BY DESIGN

V-Day Shopping. With Plenty of Beer.

Valentine’s Day shopping would be... well, a lot more tolerable with beer and waffles. So this Saturday, head to the Design District for the Piazza Valentina pop-up market. Grab a drink, then greet the food trucks (the Belgian Waffle Co., Yellow Belly, Tutta’s Pizza) before perusing some locally made jewelry and clothes. If there’s time.

A Crawfish Boil and a Bunch of Beer
CRAW DEAL

A Crawfish Boil and a Bunch of Beer

House of Blues is hosting a crawfish boil and blues festival, so on deck: a bunch of spicy crawfish, cold beer and a Cajun buffet. Plus live music from Jay-B & the Zydeco Posse. B, we said B.

Sunday
It’s a Mardi Gras Gumbo Party
RAGIN’ CAJUN

It’s a Mardi Gras Gumbo Party

The Super Bowl: come and gone. But the gumbo cook-off, well, that’s just beginning... and ending... this Sunday. Anyway, Poor David’s Pub is where it all goes down. You’ll be the judge as competitors like Alligator Café, Jack’s and the Free Man compete to win... probably a bunch of beads or something.
