Things to do for December 12, 2013
Die Hard, Cocktails and 12 Days of Tamales
On, Comet! On, Cupid! On, Donner and weekend!
Two New Spots for Eating Salad
It’s a safe bet you’ll be consuming plenty of turkey, ham and other roasted animals soon. So... how about a salad in the meantime. You’ll find Cobbs at the new Crisp Salad Co. on Lower Greenville. Or something kale-related at the just-opened Green House Market at NorthPark. The burger can wait.
40% Off at Forty Five Ten
Cardigans, corduroys, flannel shirts... It stands to reason you’re in the market. Winter and all. So head over to Forty Five Ten, because they’ve just knocked 40% off a bunch of stuff that tends to come in handy this time of year. Unless you’re reading this from the Caymans.
12 Days. 12 Tamales. Pace Yourself.
Starting tomorrow, you’ve got 12 days until Christmas. At which time you can begin counting down with tamales. Because Urban Taco’s featuring a dozen new ones (cochinita pibil, chicken mole) each day leading up to the 25th. They’re like little edible calendars.
Die Hard on the Big Screen
You’ve got your classic Christmas movies (Miracle on 34th Street), and then you’ve got your Bruce-Willis-with-a-gun-in-Nakatomi-Plaza Christmas movies (Die Hard). Fortunately, it’s the latter that’s playing this weekend at the Texas Theatre. Yippee ki-yay and all that.
This time of year, you may find yourself swayed by the holiday spirit. If not, this ought to do it. Seven hours of serious cocktails from a rotating crew of Dallas’s best barmen, as they make drinks to support a good cause. It’s either that or caroling.
