Things to do for January 30, 2014
Crazy Burgers, New Lunches and Naked Story Time
The weekend is a two-point favorite.
A 7-Layer Burger. For You. For Glory.
There are dips. There are burgers. And then there are dip-burgers that combine refried black beans, guacamole, pico, cheddar cheese, tortilla strips, sour cream, lettuce and ground beef for seven layers of lunch. You can find that at Hopdoddy. Good luck.
Barter Serves Lunch Now
You know Barter. Fine place for dinner and cocktails and... yep, that’s Barter. Or it was, because now they’re serving lunch, too. Think midday meals like chili, burgers and fried-bologna sandwiches. Which go swimmingly with that midday-beers concept you’re so fond of.
Deep Ellum’s New Co-Working Spot
Working in your own garage is... not great. Pretty dusty in there. But working in a handsome Deep Ellum collaborative space called the Garage: sure. Because there you can rent an office, host meetings and just generally do the things that’ll get your business off the ground. Drinking free coffee, for example.
This Friday, you could stay home with a good book. Or you could observe nude women read a good book. Not exactly a tough call... So get to the Quixotic World as clothes-less ladies read works from the likes of Mary Shelley and Tina Fey. Don’t strain your eyes.
If you need a spot to watch the Super Bowl, well, you’ve got a TV. But you don’t have bowling lanes next to your TV. So for that, book a lane at Bowl & Barrel. There you’ll get unlimited bowling, plus mini hot dogs and hot pretzels with fondue. Okay, twist your arm.
