Things to do for May 30, 2013
DeLoreans, Rowboats and Gimlets on Tap
Eeny, meeny, miny, moe, catch the weekend by its toe.
Gimlets on Tap at Private | Social
Two quick facts about cocktails. 1) They’re delicious. 2) They take a while to make. Anyway, this ought to help. Private | Social just launched a new menu with six cocktails on tap (gimlet, spiced daiquiri, a lovely scotch concoction...). You’ve been meaning to drink more draft scotch.
Tonight Brings an ’80s Dance Party
Back in the ’80s, there was a club called Kempi’s. It was one of those see-and-be-seen kinda spots. Well, it’s reopening tonight at the InterContinental Dallas for one night only as part of the hotel’s 30th anniversary. Expect a DJ. A disco ball. And a bunch of awkwardly choreographed dance circles.
Gratis Rowing Lessons at the Lake
Big holiday this weekend. Wait, sorry. Obscure holiday this weekend. Yup, National Learn to Row Day. It’s Saturday. So do your civic duty and head to White Rock for some free rowing lessons. You’ll learn all the basics, like sitting and paddling, we assume...
Ira Glass Live at the Winspear
You probably know Ira Glass. Guy’s on the radio a lot. This American Life... right, him. He’s in Dallas on Saturday for a little show at the Winspear. There’ll be storytelling. Some commentary. Some music. Stuff like that. This radio’s a very dynamic medium.
A BYOB BTTF
A sprawling lawn, cold beer and Back to the Future on a giant projection screen. Yes, that... that is a Sunday. So make camp in Strauss Square, pop open a frosty BYO beverage and watch as Marty McFly plays a blues riff in B. Classic Marty.
