Things to do for May 23, 2013
Beer, BBQ and Tequila-Spiked Queso
Every man dies. Not every man really weekends.
Tequila-Spiked Queso. It’s Happening.
Queso: it’s fine stuff. And tequila: very solid. So by the rules of infallible logic, some sort of queso-tequila hybrid must be... well, it’s probably pretty spectacular. See for yourself at Meso Maya. They’re serving a cheese/tequila/pork belly/shrimp chip topper through the rest of summer. You’ve gotta love these long summers.
A School Whose Only Subject Is Beer
This Saturday, you’re going to school. No, it’s okay. It’s beer school. Right, just like you’ve always dreamed of. It’s happening at Community Beer Company, and once class starts, their head brewer will teach you about beer styles, ingredients and tasting tips. Oh, first you pour, then you drink.
A Sunday of Limbo and Rum Punch
You’re probably barbecuing something on Monday. So it stands to reason that you’ll want giant bowls of rum punch, maritime playlists and limbo contests at the People’s Last Stand on Sunday. Well, not sure what the actual reasoning would be... Sounds fun, though.
Beer. BBQ. Music. More Beer.
Beer and BBQ were made for each other. And you’ve long suspected you were specifically engineered to eat both. Do that this weekend at Deep Ellum Brewing Company. They’ll be slinging seasonal beers, and Pecan Lodge will be doling out some BBQ. Sometimes, life conspires to make you very happy.
Margaritas. They’re Everywhere.
Hey, look at that... more tequila. But this time it’s in margarita form. And that doesn’t exactly disappoint you. It’s happening in Bishop Arts this Sunday, when a couple dozen bars and restaurants will be competing to see who makes them best. Your job: drink. Judge. Consume tacos. Repeat responsibly.
