Your Perks: 1) A pair of cufflinks... that also happen to be functioning lighters. Offering a light will never be the same. 2) Handsome Moscow Mule mugs made from 100% copper—so they’ll last forever. 3) 59% off gallery-worthy canvases from Banksy. Maybe you’ve heard of him.
Things to do for March 27, 2014
Growlers, Pinball and Not Your Average Opera
The weekend’s bracket is busted.
On occasion, you require a 64-ounce beer transportation vessel. Now, an empty milk jug works. But so does a glass growler emblazoned with a red Pegasus, wherein said red Pegasus is emblazoned with the word “Dallas.” Yeah, that sounds better.
Bite City Grill Opens in Fort Worth
You remember Chef Eddy. He once made you delicious things at Pakpao. Well, now he’s out west, making delicious things at Fort Worth’s just-opened Bite City Grill. So go say hi. See how he’s doing. Ask for a plate of five-spice spareribs and some lemongrass-coconut clams. You know, to be friendly.
Opening day is right around the corner. And the Texas Pinball Festival is a thing that’s also happening soon. So swing by this three-day celebration to play hundreds of classic pinball and arcade games like The Addams Family and Galaga. But first go change some dollar bills.
If you find yourself downtown on Saturday, you may also find yourself face-to-face with 3,500 pounds of crawfish. Fortuitous. So grab a plate and start eating, but be sure to leave some room for beer and bourbon. The things we ask of you...
When you think of opera, you might think... large women in Viking hats. Fair enough. But come Saturday, the Fort Worth Opera’s putting on a modern show in the Foundry’s backyard, which means cold beers, fried chicken and zero Vikings. Unless you invited Adrian Peterson or something.
