Things to do for March 14, 2013
An Irish Breakfast, a Beer Shower and a Lot of Pinball
May the luck of the weekend be with you.
Smelling Like a Doppelbock
Bathing in beer... it’s usually reserved for postgame celebrations. And bachelor parties. But now, it’s an everyday thing. See, a local soap maker’s made you a bunch of beer soap with Rahr & Sons Angry Goat. Get some at Craft and Growler. And remember, wash behind your ears.
Beer, Pork and Other Wondrous Things
Big weekend ahead. Yup, lots to eat and drink. So get started early with tonight’s Savor Dallas opening party at Trinity Groves. There you’ll find plenty of beer and wine, plus menu previews from in-the-works restaurants like Chino, LUCK and Souk. Hey, anything to support local business.
Three Days of Nothing but Pinball
You’ve probably played a little pinball in your time. Well, these guys have played more. It’s the Texas Pinball Festival, and it’s at the Anatole for three days. Stop in for 45,000 square feet of vintage pinball machines and video games. Why yes, that is a roll of quarters in your pocket.
Irish Coffee. Hash. Breakfast. You.
Big holiday coming up. Green beer. Leprechauns. Competitive bagpiping. You know the one. Anyway, you’ll probably want to fortify yourself with a traditional Irish breakfast at the Cedar’s Social before engaging in the above. Think eggs, whiskey, Irish soda bread... more whiskey.
St. Pat’s Partying at Goodfriend
Chances are, Saturday’s going to be a long day. So after all the carousing down Greenville, skip (figuratively) across town to end things at Goodfriend. They’ll have special beer tappings to commemorate the occasion, plus a live performance by Boys Named Sue. Incidentally, that’s a band.
