Things to do for April 17, 2014
Beer, Wine and Rabbits. Oh Weekend.
A bigger bang for your weekend.
Moving into Mike Modano’s House
Tough loss last night. But in happier hockey news, Mike Modano’s house hit the market. It’s a six-bedroom Preston Hollow situation with a real thing for white marble, and it can be yours for a cool $3.5 million. Though we’d suggest a signed Brett Hull jersey counteroffer.
Eat a big lunch tomorrow, because come 5pm you’ll be having an even bigger beer. See, Deep Ellum brewery is unveiling its hoppy and potent Dreamcrusher Double IPA at Blackfriar Pub. Sounds formidable. If drinking beer on a sunny patio can be formidable.
When ranking obscure holidays, Record Store Day is up there with your favorites. Now that you know it exists, anyway. So get to Good Records for a full day of live music, special-release vinyls and all the burgers, donuts and local beer you can handle. We have it on good authority it’s a lot.
It’s Easter. Better Eat a Rabbit.
Maybe you were traumatized by the Easter Bunny as a kid. Maybe you’re just hungry. Either way, you can exact your revenge this Sunday at Barter, where they’re serving up stuffed rabbit with pickled succotash and a gin-fava-bean puree. It’s good fuel for your afternoon egg hunt.
Mondays Are Better at Boxwood
Mondays get a bad rap. Hard to see why now that Boxwood is slinging half-price wine. So bring some friends and stop in for a discounted glass or bottle. Then, just do what comes naturally. Probably something with a cheese board.
