Things to do for May 09, 2013
Gatsby Parties, Gratis Pho and Extra-Special Burgers
Never count your weekends before they hatch.
A Very Important Burger
Turns out, it’s National Burger Month. And, why yes, that’s cause for celebration. So here to help: Del Frisco’s Grille. They’re featuring a special burger topped with brisket, pepper jack and candied jalapeño through the rest of May. You’ve got 22 days. Make the most of it.
A Gatsby Party at the People’s Last Stand
The Great Gatsby comes out this Friday. You might’ve heard something about that. But also, the People’s Last Stand is throwing a corresponding party. So that’s nice. See the premiere at the Angelika, then hop next door for champagne cocktails, gin rickeys, the Gatsby soundtrack and probably (hopefully) some flapper dresses.
Music Fest-ing at Main Street Garden
If you make your way downtown this weekend, you may find yourself in the middle of the HomeGrown Fest. Which basically means being surrounded by local bands (Divine Fits, the Burning Hotels), tons of Shiner and food trucks. Lots and lots of food trucks. Don’t worry, they’re parked.
Daytime Eating at Spoon
Spoon has treated you well over these last few months. The seafood feasts: pretty magnificent. But all of them: dinner only. That changes Sunday when Spoon launches brunch. Then, moving forward: lunch, with things like king crab salads and swordfish clubs. To be clear, that’s a sandwich. Not a weapon.
Giving the Gift of Gratis Pho
Surely you’ve bought an incredible Mother’s Day gift by now. But for purely hypothetical reasons, let’s say you haven’t. Well, there’s always pho. Specifically, the one they’re serving at Pho is for Lovers. Because this Sunday, Mom eats free. Whether or not you tell her is up to you.
