Things to do for June 27, 2013
Riding Camels, Eating Oysters and Other Ways to Weekend
Till weekend do us part.
Takeout Korean Tacos in Oak Cliff
Finally, a Korean taco shop in Oak Cliff... is something you can say now. Because this place just opened. It’s called Gogi Teriyaki Steak & Taco. And it’s serving up takeout like spicy bibimbap, marinated short ribs and tortilla-wrapped pork. That’s where the tacos come in.
A Book on Bathtub Gin
Prohibition was a dark and thirsty era. Sure makes for a fun read, though. So the next time you want to bone up on Prohibition in DFW and all the resulting moonshine and bathtub gin, check out this vivid tome. Because that’s what it’s about.
Tonight at Le Vú: Camel Rides
We’re just gonna get right to it. You can ride a camel at Le Vú tonight. Yes, really. It’s all part of their themed Egyptian party with pyramids, palm trees, belly dancers and real live camels. That you can ride. Just wanted to reiterate that.
Oysters and Half-Price Champagne
Champagne is wonderful stuff. Make it half price, even better. Throw in some oysters and hey, now you’re cooking with gas. Belly & Trumpet must know this, because that’s what’s happening on Tuesdays now. So stop in. Drink discounted bubbly. Eat some oysters. Live the damn dream.
Celebrating America. With Corn Dogs.
“As American as corn dogs.” What a fine saying. Not an accurate one, but we’re not here to nitpick. No, just to tell you about the Brass Knuckle Corndog Beatdown happening July 4 at the Libertine. Expect beer, a corn-dog-eating contest and a dunk tank. You’re a sucker for dunk tanks.
