Things to do for June 20, 2013
Taco Trucks, Beer Parties and Richard Milhous Nixon
It’s a weekend thing. You wouldn’t understand.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
