Things to do for September 12, 2013
Pizza, Tattoos and Humongous Soup
The end justifies the weekends.
Going to Plano for Pizza
You’d cross an ocean for perfectly fired pizzas and beers. Or at least you’d cross 635. So head north for this rustic spot full of thin-crust pies and two dozen drafts. Then, proceed to consume said things while somewhere off in the distance (or on the house stage), a band plays.
Four-Day Wine Fest-ing in Grapevine
If you find yourself in Grapevine this weekend, you’ll find yourself awash in four days of wine tastings, wine tours and the occasional midday turkey-leg snack. Not to mention a cork-shooting contest. Which involves popping champagne corks for distance. Better bring some protective eyewear.
Drink Rum. Hear Music. Get a Tattoo.
Picture this. You’re in Deep Ellum drinking rum and listening to the Reverend Horton Heat, when more than 50 tattoo artists descend upon the streets and just start permanently drawing things on everyone in sight. The reason: the Elm Street Music & Tattoo Festival. We hope.
This Friday, the Quarter turns 13. Which, yes, is Friday the 13th. Fortuitous. So come celebrate their entrance into teenhood with a bunch of Deep Ellum Brewing Co. beers, half-price comestibles and the occasional fake Jason Voorhees. Right, because it’s also a costume party. You’ve been warned.
Group Soup-Slurping at Pakpao
Sunday omelets: a fine, albeit expected effort. But Sunday hot pots filled with spicy lemongrass soup, mussels and pork... now we’re getting somewhere. And that somewhere: Pakpao, for their new Suki Sundays. So grab some friends and partake in communal vats of roiling broth. It’s cathartic.
