Things to do for January 16, 2014
Billy Reid, Whiskey and Crème Brûlée French Toast
Good things come to those who weekend.
Trekking West for Whiskey and Pork
Big news for anyone who’s in Fort Worth or not opposed to road-tripping for chili-rubbed pork. The Consilient guys (CBD Provisions, Victor Tangos) have a new restaurant, and it’s doing wonderful things with grass-fed meats, smoked trout and bourbon cocktails. Wonderful things like serving them and allowing you to eat them.
Because it’s still winter and therefore an occasion to cover yourself, Billy Reid’s gone ahead and discounted some jackets for you. Lots of them. Military jackets and windowpane overcoats and other items that go over your clothes to keep you warm. So get one while it still makes sense.
An Evening of Models and Art
This Saturday, Artopia’s going down in Deep Ellum. And what that entails: runway models, stiff cocktails, finger foods, an Ishi performance and a blank slate of wood-and-brick real estate transformed into a local art showcase. Hopefully you like at least two of those things.
A Bloody Mary Wake-Up Call
Sundays are a time of rest. Until about 11am, at which point it’s a time for brunch. So this Sunday, try a brand-new version at Resto Gastro Bistro. It’s got things like crème brûlée french toast and a Bloody Mary bar and... okay, we’ll just get out of the way now.
Just a Few of Your Favorite Things
Barbecue, bourbon and burlesque. Just three alphabetized B words you’ve come to love. So on Tuesday, head to the People’s Last Stand, where guest chef Josh Black is barbecuing things (pig ears, pork jowls, whole rabbits) while you consume bourbon in the company of less-than-fully-clad burlesque dancers. You know, dinner and a show.
