Feasting in the Middle of a Farm

Dining at a restaurant... nope, nothing wrong with that. But sometimes you want a change of scenery. Something alfresco. On a farm, perhaps. With a bunch of local chefs. Right, like the Community Cooks dinner tonight. You’ll eat. You’ll drink. You’ll probably discuss an almanac or something.

Friday
Hey, Gratis Grilled Cheese at Norma’s
CHEESE LOUISE

Hey, Gratis Grilled Cheese at Norma’s

Friday’s a pretty solid day on its own. But throw in a free grilled cheese and sure, okay. Now we’re talking. To get yours, head to Norma’s, where they’re dishing out gratis sandwiches to celebrate the most underrated of holidays. Yup, National Grilled Cheese Day. Nice one, America.

Sunday
Watching the Masters at Pebble + Pine
MASTER’S DEGREE

Watching the Masters at Pebble + Pine

There’s a big golf tournament this weekend. You know, Augusta, green jackets, that whole thing. Anyway, you can watch Sunday’s finish at Pebble + Pine. They’ll have beer and snacks. Plus a couch. Also, a big TV. Jeez, these guys thought of everything.

Champagne. Sushi. The ’80s. Brunch.
ROLL OUT

Champagne. Sushi. The ’80s. Brunch.

You take your brunching quite seriously. It’s commendable. And it’s why we’re telling you about the new brunch at Lounge 31. Stop in Sunday for oysters, sushi and half-price champagne. Meanwhile, a DJ will play some ’80s hits. See, serious business.

Apr 14, noon-4pm, Lounge 31, 87 Highland Park Village, Ste 200, 214-420-3906

Wednesday
Five Courses of Whiskey at Tate’s
WHISKEY PARTY

Five Courses of Whiskey at Tate’s

Dinner: good. Whiskey: great. Combining the two: usually pretty spectacular. So you might want to visit Tate’s next Wednesday. They’re serving dishes like sweet corn soup with fried pig’s ears. And doling out whiskeys like Parker’s Heritage with... well, a nice clean glass.

Apr 17, 6pm, $50 (plus $30 for whiskey pairings), Tate’s, 2723 McKinney Ave, 214-954-4141, reserve here
