Things to do for October 10, 2013

The Weekender

College Football, Freddy Krueger and Sandwiches in the Sky

The weekend is mightier than the sword.

Thursday
See the City. Have a Sandwich.
UP IN THE AIR

See the City. Have a Sandwich.

Reunion Tower. Turns out, it’s not just a big spinning ball. It’s also an observation deck now. One with extra-powerful telescopes. So bring your visiting friends and try to find your house. Then break for a chicken-adobo sandwich at the new Cloud Nine Café. Oh yeah, new café.

Hypnotic’s Got New Flavors for You
FALL GUY

Hypnotic’s Got New Flavors for You

The best thing about fall: the weather. Obviously. But the second-best thing: these seasonal donuts from Hypnotic. We’re talking pumpkin spice, apple cider and eggnog with brandy-nutmeg icing. Goes well with some coffee. That’s in a flask. With whiskey.

Flavors rolling out through fall, Hypnotic Donuts, 9007 Garland Rd, 214-668-6999

Giving the Gift of Tamales
TAMALE RINGWALD

Giving the Gift of Tamales

It’s not often that mail is exciting. But it’s also not often that mail is tamales. See, those shredded-beef-and-ancho-chili numbers at El Fenix are now available online by the dozen. Just place an order, and two days later: tamales at your doorstep. This’ll come in handy for football Sundays. Or hungry Wednesdays.

Friday
One, Two, Freddy’s Got Beers for You
FREDDY OR NOT

One, Two, Freddy’s Got Beers for You

Halloween’s approaching, so you’ll want to prepare. By eating copious amounts of miniature candy, sure. But also: by watching something scary like A Nightmare on Elm Street. It’s coming to the Inwood Theatre tomorrow night. So grab yourself a tall whiskey, sit back and enjoy. And don’t fall asleep.

Oct 12, 12:15am, $10, Inwood Theatre, 5458 W Lovers Ln, 214-352-5085

Saturday
Beer, Football and a Really Big Screen
THE RIVER WILD

Beer, Football and a Really Big Screen

Big game this weekend. Yup, the Red River Rivalry. If you’re going, great. Enjoy. Have a beverage. If you’re not going, great. Enjoy. Have a beverage. Just do it at Party on the Plaza. Because they’re airing the rivalry on a massive projection screen. Not Cotton Bowl massive, but still... quite sizable.
