What a Soviet Burger Looks Like

They’re a bit late to the starting block, but Liberty Burger’s got something Olympics-y for you to eat. It’s a Russian-themed burger topped with sliced kielbasa sausage, Russian cabbage, swiss cheese and housemade mustard on a brioche bun. The cheese is there for peacekeeping.

Available now at Liberty Burger, 1904 Abrams Pkwy, 214-887-9999, and other area locations

More Lockhart. This Is Good.
LOCKHART OF THE MATTER

More Lockhart. This Is Good.

Call it a hunch, but we’re betting you like the perfectly smoked brisket, beef ribs and jalapeño sausage they serve at Lockhart Smokehouse. And that you’ll be pleased to know they’re now serving the same fare at a shiny new location in downtown Plano. Hope we’re not being too presumptuous.

Paintings You’d Like to Eat

The Amon Carter Museum’s got a new collection of 60 American paintings featuring bright-yellow turkeys, patriotic bourbon bottles and Norman Rockwell scenes. You should check it out with a date. Probably after you eat.

ELBOW FLEX

Sliders, Beers and a Birthday Party

On Saturday, the new incarnation of Elbow Room turns one. Which, for you, means $1 draft beers, smoked-brisket sliders and raffle tickets. Winners get gift cards and T-shirts. Losers get... well, those $1 beers. You like your chances.

Feb 22, 6pm, Elbow Room, 3010 Gaston Ave, 214-828-9488

Monday
Let’s Play with Legos
BLOCK PARTY

Let’s Play with Legos

Legos are a hot ticket these days. Blockbuster movie, Monday night playdate... See, Legoland Discovery Center is hosting an adults-only evening of recreational Lego-ing. It’s your chance to build an impenetrable fort. Or a spaceship. Or a spaceship that doubles as a stand for your flask.
