Things to do for April 18, 2013
Tons of Tacos, Lots of Beer and Four Days of Val Kilmer
Be the change that you wish to see in the weekend.
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
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.
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.
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
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.
