Your Perks this week: some regal bar sets from the golden age of imbibing—complete with rare booklets of recipes for old-school cocktails. (In case you need ideas.) Other beautiful things: 20% off the perfect desktop speakers, and some limited-edition surf art from a collective of international photographers.
Things to do for April 04, 2013
Get Ready for a Grilled Cheese and 400 Beers
That’s ball four, take your weekend.
A Bourbon-y Concert at Billy Reid
After a long, quiet winter, the Billy Reid Southern Socials are back. (Whew.) What’s in store: live music from J. Charles & the Trainrobbers, a bunch of bourbon cocktails, plates of fried chicken and other examples of Southern supremacy/grounds for immediate action.
Double Wide Serves Food Now
You’ve done many things at Double Wide. Seen shows, drank beers, consumed Yoo-hoo cocktails. But you’ve never eaten a grilled cheese sandwich there. Tonight, that changes. Because the bar’s new food stand is doling them out. Also, Frito pies and bologna sandwiches. Those ought to come in handy around midnight.
Trekking North for Steak and Lobster
So, Tim Love... busy guy. Lots of restaurants. And now, one more. It’s called Queenie’s Steakhouse, and it opens tonight in Denton. Inside you’ll find wood-slatted walls, two patios, a menu full of beef (seriously, so much beef) and chicken-fried lobster. We could see you liking that.
You and 400 Beers in Fair Park
There’s a big Texas beer fest happening this weekend. You may know it. Called the Big Texas Beer Fest. Anyway, you’ll want to check it out. Just stop by Fair Park, and everywhere you look: beer. Four hundred of them from 100 different breweries. Don’t feel like you need to try them all.
Now You Can Brunch at Belly & Trumpet
There’s just something about brunch. The bacon, the mimosas, the sweet relief from prior sins... It’s a marvelous thing. And hey, Belly & Trumpet’s launching theirs on Sunday. They’ll have bacon, of course. Eggs, sure. French toast, definitely. Oh, and hanger steak lying atop a kimchi omelet. Didn’t see that one coming, did you...
