The Weekender

130 Tequilas and the Longest Party of the Year

Fortune favors the weekend.

Thursday
J.Crew’s New Home of Handsome
A CREW GOOD MEN

J.Crew’s New Home of Handsome

J.Crew, that classic purveyor of head-to-toe dapperness, has just opened a dedicated men’s shop at NorthPark. Inside, you’ll find modern-cut Ludlow suits, button-down shirts, special-edition New Balance sneakers and an entire bookshelf full of patterned socks. So... gift idea.

Can We Interest You in Some Chocolate...
HEY DUDE

Can We Interest You in Some Chocolate...

Because you’ll probably need some chocolate for either a) dessert tonight or b) dessert tomorrow, you’ll be glad to know that Dude, Sweet Chocolate just opened a new shop on Greenville Ave. And the unassuming little store’s got all your favorites. Provided your favorites include African-dark-chocolate-and-blue-cheese fudge.

Friday
A 35-Hour-Long Party
MARATHON MAN

A 35-Hour-Long Party

In the event that you’ve got a day and a half to kill, Dallas Contemporary is hosting a 35-hour party to celebrate its 35th birthday. There’ll be concerts, movie screenings, food trucks and plenty to drink. Oh, plus some live wrestling and nude women reading books, should time permit (it’ll permit).

Saturday
A Celebration of Beer. Texas Beer.
WHAT ALES YOU

A Celebration of Beer. Texas Beer.

If you find yourself in Fair Park on Saturday, good. Good for you. Because that’s where they’re keeping the food trucks (Ssahm, Doughboy’s). The music (Hanna Barbarians). And the 25 sample-providing Texas breweries (Pedernales, Martin House). Plus a few not-Texas breweries. Which you’ll be okay with, because beer.

Monday
Head North for Tequila
SUG’ NIGHT

Head North for Tequila

You don’t trek to Plano for just anything. But a 130-strong tequila library, cocktails on tap, ceviche and whole roasted snapper... well, that’s not just anything. That’s Mexican Sugar, a new spot situated in the Shops at Legacy. Seems worth checking out. You know, for the snapper.

Now open for dinner, lunch begins Nov 11, Mexican Sugar, 7501 Lone Star Dr, Ste B150, Plano, 972-943-0984
