Chili, the Oscars and 90-Cent Sparkling Wine

Weekends of a feather flock together.

HAD HOC

Hadleigh’s Has a New Idea

You probably know Hadleigh’s for its handsome tuxedo slippers and bespoke blazers. Well, they’ve still got all that. But now they’ve also got the just-launched H-Collection, which essentially consists of things with a more modern fit and relaxed aesthetic. Things like... different blazers.

Available now at Hadleigh’s, 74 Highland Park Village, 214-526-3777

10 Months’ Worth of Sparkling Wine
SPARK NOTES

10 Months’ Worth of Sparkling Wine

This year, the Warwick Melrose Hotel turns 90 (barely looks a day over 88), so they’re celebrating by doling out 90-cent glasses of sparkling wine now through the end of December. All you have to do: order a meal at the Landmark or the Library Bar. Okay, twist your arm.

Saturday
Celebrating State Pride. With Chili.
TEX APPEAL

Celebrating State Pride. With Chili.

178 years ago, the Republic of Texas was formed. And with it, a valid reason to celebrate each year with unholy quantities of beer and chili. So head to the Ginger Man for bowls of red, local beer specials and some music. Getting seconds: practically your patriotic duty.

Sunday
And the Submarine Sandwich Goes To...
AWARD WORTHY

And the Submarine Sandwich Goes To...

Ellen DeGeneres, gold statues and free hoagies. Yep, it’s Oscars season, and this Sunday you can watch the proceedings at the Angelika with a drink in one hand, a Jersey Mike’s sub in the other and... you’d better bring a friend to hold your popcorn.

Tuesday
Going All Fat Tuesday at Sundown
MARDI ON, WAYNE

Going All Fat Tuesday at Sundown

Mardi Gras. It’s on your radar. It’s also across state lines, but no one told Sundown. Because they’re hosting a Fat Tuesday party with live New Orleans jazz, $3 hurricanes and all the jambalaya you can handle. Which, last we checked, was a fair amount.
