Things to do for June 20, 2013

The Weekender

Taco Trucks, Beer Parties and Richard Milhous Nixon

It’s a weekend thing. You wouldn’t understand.

Thursday
New. Taco. Truck.
TACO THE WORLD

New. Taco. Truck.

Tacos from a truck. What a concept. An old one, but still... pretty solid. So let’s delight in the opening of City View Tacos, a truck that’s slinging all manner of tortilla-wrapped deliciousness while parked on West Commerce. Okay, so it’s not exactly playing hard to get.

Friday
Block Partying in the Arts District
BLOCKBUSTER

Block Partying in the Arts District

Friday. June 21. First official day of summer. Seems like an occasion someone should commemorate. With a block party, perhaps. Like the Summer Block Party in the Arts District. On tap: 20-plus food trucks, live music and an outdoor screening of Moonrise Kingdom. Way to start strong, summer.

Saturday
Birthday Beers at the Bottle Shop
BREW ARE YOU

Birthday Beers at the Bottle Shop

Here’s the thing about two-year-olds’ birthday parties: they rarely result in special keg tappings (Anchor’s Old Foghorn, Deep Ellum’s Numb Comfort), growler fills, live music and free grub. Unless said two-year-old is the Bottle Shop. In which case, yes, yes they do.

Sunday
Cocktailing by the Lumen Pool
WHAT A POOL BELIEVES

Cocktailing by the Lumen Pool

Crashing a private pool: huge rush. Being invited to a private pool: less of a rush, but who cares, you’re at a private pool. Anyway, on a related note, the Lumen is inviting you to use their pool and drink their booze every Sunday between now and August 18. Don’t disappoint them.

Sundays, Jun 23-Aug 18, The Lumen Hotel, 6101 Hillcrest Ave, 214-219-2400

Watergate: The Brunch
GATE WAY

Watergate: The Brunch

Surely you’re aware, but this week marks the 40th anniversary of the Watergate break-in. And, obviously, that calls for brunch. Specifically, this curious affair at Hôtel St. Germain. You’ll consume eggs benedict and Deep Throat mimosas while watching All the President’s Men. Ah, so just how you celebrated the 39th anniversary.
