Things to do for August 29, 2013

The Weekender

Pool Parties, Homebrews and a Full Day of Bacon

Cross your fingers and hope to weekend.

Thursday
Al Pastor in an Oak Cliff Taco Shack
TACO YOUR OWN WAY

Al Pastor in an Oak Cliff Taco Shack

Tacos. Last you checked: yup, still good. So here’s some favorable news. A taqueria just opened in Oak Cliff. It’s called Taqueria Habanero, and they’re stuffing delicious things between corn tortillas. Things like al pastor that’s slow cooked on a trompo. Never underestimate the power of a good trompo.

Saturday
These Donuts Taste Like Burning
HOT HOT HEAT

These Donuts Taste Like Burning

A little friendly competition never hurt anyone. Unless, say, donuts are involved. Five donuts, to be exact. Each topped with ghost pepper frosting, habaneros, jalapeños, dried chilies and cayenne pepper. Then, yeah, that could hurt a bit. Anyway, it’s happening Saturday at Hypnotic Donuts. Bring milk.

Sunday
A Beer to You Ratio of 40:1
BREW ON THAT

A Beer to You Ratio of 40:1

On Sunday, you should really head to Deep Ellum Brewing Company. Because they’re hosting a homebrewing contest with beers from more than 40 entrants, plus live music and food trucks. Your only task: tasting each and levying judgment. Remember, harsh but fair.

Movie Mockery at Alamo Drafthouse
VAMPIRE WEEKEND

Movie Mockery at Alamo Drafthouse

Hey, guess what: you’re going to watch Twilight: Breaking Dawn on Sunday. (Yes, really.) Because Austin comedy troupe Master Pancake will be at Alamo Drafthouse mocking it the whole time. Good luck finding anything remotely humorous about Kristen Stewart birthing a tiny human/vampire hybrid.

Sep 1, 6:30 and 9:45pm, Alamo Drafthouse, 100 S Central Expy, Ste 14, Richardson, 972-534-2120

Monday
Something Wild for Your Free Monday
KU LIKE THAT

Something Wild for Your Free Monday

Three-day weekend. Might as well make the most of it. Catch up on sleep. Do some yard work. Sip champagne in a poolside cabana while bikini-clad revelers dance around like crazy people... You can do that last one at Ku De Ta. Or perhaps somewhere else, but definitely at Ku De Ta.
