Things to do for July 11, 2013
Fish Tacos, French Maids and Other Things That Matter
When weekends attack.
An Afternoon Full of Fish Tacos
In case you enjoy fish, tacos or things that are half price, you might want to know about what’s happening now at the TJ’s on Oak Lawn. See, they’ve got half-price fish tacos from 3 to 5pm. It’s kinda like a fish taco happy hour. Okay, it’s exactly like a fish taco happy hour.
50% Off Stanley Korshak
Summer... it’s still going strong. Which means you still need: linen pants, suede loafers and lightweight blazers. Like the sort of stuff Stanley Korshak’s currently giving you for up to 50% off. Sometimes things just kind of work themselves out.
Friday Nights Are for Beer
Hey, good news. Actually, more like great news. Some legislation just changed, and now breweries can sell pints on site. So Community’s doing just that. Stop into the taproom on Friday for a sweet taste of liberty... which, as it turns out, tastes a lot like pale ale.
The Alamo Drafthouse is coming later this summer. Until then, it’s mostly just a construction site. Correction: a construction site with a big outdoor projector. One that’s showing Dazed and Confused on Saturday. All right, all right, all right.
Saluting the French in Bishop Arts
Big holiday coming up. Yup, Bastille Day. Pretend-Like-You’re-French Day. This year, you’ll do so in Bishop Arts, where there’ll be crepes, baguettes, red wine, pétanque, mimes, music and a French maid relay race. Maybe we should’ve led with that.
