The Weekender

Die Hard, Cocktails and 12 Days of Tamales

On, Comet! On, Cupid! On, Donner and weekend!

Thursday
Two New Spots for Eating Salad
GREEN DAY

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
THIS IS FORTY

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.

Friday
12 Days. 12 Tamales. Pace Yourself.
FROM HUSK TILL DAWN

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.

Dec 13-25, Urban Taco, 3411 McKinney Ave, 214-922-7080, and 5331 E Mockingbird Ln, Ste 125, 214-823-4723

Die Hard on the Big Screen
HARD TIMES

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.

Sunday
Drinking Well and Feeling Good
POUR EFFORT

Drinking Well and Feeling Good

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.
