The Weekender

Tons of Tacos, Lots of Beer and Four Days of Val Kilmer

Be the change that you wish to see in the weekend.

Thursday
Attending Val Kilmer’s One-Man Show
THE ICEMAN COMETH

Attending Val Kilmer’s One-Man Show

He’s been Iceman. Batman. Jim Morrison... man. And now, Val Kilmer’s channeling the life, times and mustache of Mark Twain in this one-man play. So, first, grab some tickets. Then, show up to the Wyly Theatre. And finally, settle in for some good old American storytelling. And maybe some bourbon.

Eating Po’boys in Preston Center
PO’BOY MEETS WORLD

Eating Po’boys in Preston Center

You’d travel far and wide for a good po’boy. Or at least to Preston Center. Yeah, definitely there. Which is perfect, because that’s where the new Wicked Po’Boys just opened. Inside, you’ve got cold beer, shrimp, charred oysters and fried everythings. You’ll do well here.

Saturday
Even Record Stores Have Holidays
RECORD DEAL

Even Record Stores Have Holidays

You never turn down a reason to celebrate. Take May Day, for instance. Or Tuesday afternoon. Or Record Store Day. (Yup, it’s real.) So stop into Good Records for 17 hours of live sets, special album releases, donuts and pizza. Seventeen hours is a lot of pizza.

Apr 20, 7am-midnight, Good Records, 1808 Greenville Ave, 214-752-4663

Eating Tons of Tacos in Deep Ellum
TACO THE TOWN

Eating Tons of Tacos in Deep Ellum

Sometimes you crave tacos. Okay, most times you crave tacos. So you’ll really want to check out the North Texas Taco Festival. It’s going down Saturday in Deep Ellum, where you’ll sample meat/shell combos from trucks and restaurants across the city. No, the shells probably won’t be made of Doritos.

Just So Much Crawfish and Beer
CRAW DATA

Just So Much Crawfish and Beer

You rarely say no to crawfish. You never say no to beer. And consuming both for a good cause... well, that’s just a no-brainer. So check out Boil for the Brave on Saturday. $25 gets you four hours of all-you-can-handle crawfish and beer. Maybe skip breakfast.
