Things to do for November 21, 2013

The Weekender

Pie and Turkey and Single Malt Scotch

We are the world. We are the weekend.

Thursday
Bring These to Thanksgiving
GIVE A LITTLE BIT

Bring These to Thanksgiving

We’re going to go ahead and assume someone is already taking care of the turkey for next Thursday. But ask yourself: who’s bringing the gallon jug of Black Swan’s homemade Bloody Mary mix... Or the Malai Kitchen coconut cream pie with tamarind caramel sauce and coconut gelato... You. That’s who.

Available until Nov 22 at Black Swan Saloon, 2708 Elm St, 214-749-4848; available now with 24 hours’ notice at Malai Kitchen, 3699 McKinney Ave #319, 972-591-3387

The Only Sandwich That Matters
BIRD IN HAND

The Only Sandwich That Matters

Imagine the perfect Thanksgiving sandwich. Okay, now read about the perfect Thanksgiving sandwich. It’s available at Hopdoddy and it’s roasted turkey (of course), cornbread stuffing, ginger-cranberry chutney, sage pesto, gouda cheese and bacon-brussels-sprouts salad on an egg bun. Good luck, egg bun.

Saturday
Damn Right This Is a Date Spot
SNEAK PEAK

Damn Right This Is a Date Spot

This is Peak Grille. It’s in the old Bowen’s Café spot. It’s got a massive wine list, a bunch of flatbread pizzas and a wood-fired-bread-pudding thing for dessert that’s covered in brandy glaze. If you can figure out a use for a place like this, please let us know.

Now soft-open, Peak Grille, 6135 Luther Ln, 214-361-6984

Monday
A Movie About Bartending
THAT’S THE SPIRIT

A Movie About Bartending

We have no idea if Hey Bartender—a documentary about two bartenders trying to achieve their bartending dreams—will win any Oscars, but we do know that following the one-night-only screening on Monday at the Village Theatre, there’ll be an after-party with plenty of single malt. So, yeah, stay through the credits.

Wednesday
Guess the Theme of This Party...
PILGRIM REAPER

Guess the Theme of This Party...

Candleroom is hosting a party on Thanksgiving Eve. The theme is going to be pilgrims and Indians. There’s going to be a whole lot of champagne on hand. And that last part is particularly important when you realize the following day is a national holiday.

Nov 27, Candleroom, 5039 Willis Ave, 214-370-4155
