The Weekender

1920s Cocktailing, John Wayne and Hot Dogs for Breakfast

Out of the frying pan, into the weekend.

Thursday
Wake Up, Have a Hot Dog
DOG TOWN

Wake Up, Have a Hot Dog

Good news on the hot-dogs-for-breakfast front. You can eat them now. Because Samson’s is opening its doors early to serve morning fare like turkey-dog croissants, smoked-brat wraps and sausage-and-cheese sliders. Yeah, you’d wake up for that.

Four Days of John Wayne
DUKE IT OUT

Four Days of John Wayne

Prepare to get a crash course in everything John Wayne, because Look Cinemas is hosting the four-day John Wayne Film Festival. Watch him pair up with Dean Martin in Rio Bravo or play the iconic Sheriff Rooster Cogburn in True Grit. Sheriffs... they don’t name ’em like they used to.

Friday
Heading North for Steaks and Burgers
DEE DAY

Heading North for Steaks and Burgers

You know Dee Lincoln, that go-to for steaks and burgers in Uptown. Well, now they’ve got an outpost in Plano, where you can score 20-ounce dry-aged Wagyu strips, bison burgers and lobster tacos. And if that’s not a reason to go to Plano, well, you probably just ate.

Saturday
It’s a Seersucker Bike Ride
RIDE ALONG

It’s a Seersucker Bike Ride

The sun is shining, flowers are blooming, and a hundred seersucker-clad people just whizzed by on bikes. Must be spring. So don your finest seersucker suit and join this leisurely ride, which ends with a picnic at Robert E. Lee Park. Better reserve some of that bourbon in your water bottle.

Partying Like a 1920s Socialite
FLAP HAPPY

Partying Like a 1920s Socialite

In honor of our thirsty forebears, Dallas Heritage Village is hosting a ’20s-style romp complete with corresponding fashion sense and a fox-trot orchestra. Throw in some classic cocktails courtesy of Michael Martensen and Brian McCullough, and you’ve got yourself a real... humdinger, we think they’d call it.

Apr 26, 7-11pm, $75/person or $125/couple, Dallas Heritage Village, 1515 S Harwood St, tickets at 214-413-3662 or at gate
