The Weekender

Home Alone, Curling and Five-Cent Cocktails

All right, stop, collaborate and weekend.

Lakewood Has More Burgers Now
CHIP TO BE SQUARE

Lakewood Has More Burgers Now

If you’ve consumed a burger sometime between 1981 and today, chances are you’ve eaten at Chip’s. If you haven’t, maybe it’s because you live in Lakewood and have been waiting patiently for one to open nearby. Well, that day has come. Time to shine.

The 80th Anniversary of Legal Hooch
GOOD CENTS

The 80th Anniversary of Legal Hooch

There’s just nothing like the holiday... Yep, singular. Because we’re talking about the most important holiday of all: Repeal Day. So tonight, commemorate the occasion with 80-cent classics (gin slings, Sazeracs) at Victor Tangos, or head north for five-cent cocktails at Whiskey Cake. You can spare a nickel for that.

Dec 5, 5pm-midnight, Victor Tangos, 3001 N Henderson Ave, 214-252-8595; 3-7pm, Whiskey Cake, 3601 Dallas Pkwy, Plano, 972-993-2253

Friday
Sunset Lounge Throws Itself a Party
BEFORE SUNSET

Sunset Lounge Throws Itself a Party

This Friday marks the one-year anniversary of Sunset Lounge. Which marks the one-year anniversary of chicken tinga tacos and rum-heavy zombies. Which... is something worth celebrating. So head over for tiki drink specials, a DJ and all the tacos you can handle. We’re betting it’s more than one.

Saturday
A Home Alone Pizza Party. Yes. Oh Yes.
KEVIN!

A Home Alone Pizza Party. Yes. Oh Yes.

Negligent families, comedic violence and pizza. It’s what the holidays are all about. So celebrate all three at Alamo Drafthouse as they break out the “whole cheese pizzas” and subtitles for this Home Alone quote-along. “Keep the change, ya filthy animal.”

Dec 7, 2pm, Alamo Drafthouse, 100 S Central Expy, Ste 14, Richardson, 972-534-2120

Training for Sochi... at Klyde Warren
GOLD RUSH

Training for Sochi... at Klyde Warren

The 2014 Road to Sochi Tour is swinging through town this weekend, and they’re setting up shop in the park. In this case, shop means a makeshift curling sheet, virtual snowboarding and radar guns to clock your slap shot. The Russian judge is not impressed.
