Things to do for September 19, 2013

The Weekender

Fried Chicken, Cheeseburgers and Imbibing Like Hemingway

The weekend is starting a slow clap.

Thursday
Go North for Pho
FEE FI PHO FUM

Go North for Pho

Pho: a good thing. More pho: more of a good thing. It’s simple math. And it applies to Pho House, which is opening very soon near the Galleria. Do some shopping, then stop in for steaming-hot bowls of noodle soup, spring rolls and crispy pork belly. Or just skip the shopping entirely.

Opens any day now (maybe tonight, call first), Pho House, 5301 Alpha Rd, Ste 24, 972-661-9960

Friday
Channeling Papa at Hôtel St. Germain
ERNEST GOES TO CUBA

Channeling Papa at Hôtel St. Germain

Cuba. Now there’s a place that’s tough to visit. Unless you’re content with just dropping by the Hôtel St. Germain. Then it’s easy. See, they’re hosting a Hemingway-in-Cuba dinner. The kind of dinner with rum cocktails and four courses of Delmonico steaks, patatas bravas and pollo aljibe. Which is Spanish for “chicken aljibe.”

Saturday
Saturday Brings Fried-Chicken Brunch
CHICKEN MAGNET

Saturday Brings Fried-Chicken Brunch

You’ve probably had a fried-chicken dinner at Sissy’s. Maybe a fried-chicken lunch. But never a fried-chicken brunch. It’s criminal. It’s also not your fault, because brunch launches Saturday. On the menu: crab cake benedict, short rib hash and other weekend AM necessities. Like fried chicken.

What We Have Here Is a Burger Festival
HERE’S THE BEEF

What We Have Here Is a Burger Festival

Burgers just never get old. Figuratively speaking. Point is, they’re delicious, and here’s a bunch of them all in one place. It’s called BurgerFest, and it’s coming to Deep Ellum on Saturday. You can expect 20-plus burger purveyors and a beer garden. Chew slowly.

Sep 21, 11am-5pm, BurgerFest, Main St (between Malcolm X Blvd and Crowdus St)

Wednesday
The Best Little Warehaus in Texas
WARE IT’S AT

The Best Little Warehaus in Texas

Next week, Warehaus turns one. Naturally, this calls for a celebration. So here’s your celebration. Show up if you’re into things like Larry Gee, Mizzen+Main button-downs and gratis cocktails. So... show up.
