Things to do for March 13, 2014

The Weekender

David Bowie, Rooftop Pubs and Downtown Affogato

South by South Weekend

Thursday
More Coffee. Never a Bad Thing.
YO, JOE

More Coffee. Never a Bad Thing.

Coffee occasionally comes in handy. Downtown is a place you occasionally find yourself. So, hey, here’s a new café that’s strategically situated right between Campisi’s and the Joule. Drop in when life calls for a cappuccino, affogato, gelato or light sandwich... o.

Friday
In Case You Want to Block-Party
BLOCKBUSTER

In Case You Want to Block-Party

Crepes...
The NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship trophy...
Korean BBQ tacos...
A screening of the 1986 David Bowie classic, Labyrinth...
Live music...
... are just a few of the things you’ll find tomorrow night at this Arts District block party. Sounds random. Sounds like a plan.

Saturday
The Safest Place to Do St. Pat’s
LONDONER CALLING

The Safest Place to Do St. Pat’s

The best way to take in the St. Patrick’s Day parade: from a distance. Thankfully, the Londoner is opening their massive rooftop at 9am on Saturday to provide you with burgers, Irish whiskey and an elevated view of all the action happening below. It’s incredibly considerate of them.

Sunday
Forget SXSW...
TO ELLUM AND BACK

Forget SXSW...

The Sunday after SXSW. Good day to sleep. Better day to eat some brunch, have a Bloody Mary and then power through at the Spillover Music Festival in Deep Ellum. Twenty bands. Three stages. Also, you know, the convenience of being in Dallas and all.

Monday
Strangers Say the Darndest Things
ORAL REPORT

Strangers Say the Darndest Things

Of all the ways to spend your Monday, this one is probably the most uncomfortable. Yup, Oral Fixation is back for another one of those shows where they read true-ish stories—typically of the cringe-worthy variety—submitted by anonymous audience members. Bring a date. Share a story. Remember not to sign it with your name.
