The Weekender

An Irish Breakfast, a Beer Shower and a Lot of Pinball

May the luck of the weekend be with you.

Thursday
Smelling Like a Doppelbock
BATH TO ENLIGHTENMENT

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.

Available now, $5.99, Angry Goat Soap at Craft and Growler, 3601 Parry Ave, 214-821-1122

Beer, Pork and Other Wondrous Things
HOLY TRINITY

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.

Friday
Three Days of Nothing but Pinball
ARCADE FIRE

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.

Saturday
Irish Coffee. Hash. Breakfast. You.
GREEN DAY

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
STANDING PAT

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.

Mar 16, noon, Goodfriend, 1154 Peavy Rd, 214-324-3335
