Things to do for May 01, 2014

The Weekender

Cinco de Mayo. The Derby. The Weekend.

Win, place and weekend.

Thursday
Here’s Your Handmade Derby Hat
HATS ALL, FOLKS

Here’s Your Handmade Derby Hat

With the Derby this weekend, you’re going to need a hat. Also: bourbon. But about that hat... the House of MacGregor is hand-making a bunch of attractive head covers for wearing on race day. Or any day, really. But definitely race day.

Saturday
Waking Up for Vagabond’s Brunch
CALL IT A BRUNCH

Waking Up for Vagabond’s Brunch

You know Vagabond. Fine place for cocktails and dinner and bocce in the backyard. Except on weekends, when it’s also a fine place for sampling their new brunch. So stop in for lifesaving bacon grilled cheese benedicts and Bloody Marys. Tastes better than Advil and water.

Sat-Sun, noon-4pm, Vagabond, 3619 Greenville Ave, 214-824-2263

A Tequila-and-Taco Kind of Celebration
IN CINC

A Tequila-and-Taco Kind of Celebration

On Saturday, Urban Taco is hosting a couple of Cinco de Mayo fiestas. You can expect plenty of margaritas, sure. Mariachis, of course. Tacos, you know it. Masked luchadores... okay, probably didn’t see that one coming. But yes.

May 3, 2pm-close, Urban Taco, 3411 McKinney Ave, 214-922-7080, and 5331 E Mockingbird Ln, Ste 125, 214-823-4723

Drinking Juleps and Watching the Derby
HORSE PLAY

Drinking Juleps and Watching the Derby

The Derby. They call it the most exciting two minutes in sports. But we’re betting you’ll need, oh, about three hours to fully savor the race. That’s because Sissy’s is breaking out the mint juleps, fried chicken and seersucker-y crowds for a watch party. Time your bathroom breaks carefully.

Monday
Spaghetti + Westerns = This
IN LIKE CLINT

Spaghetti + Westerns = This

Cinco de Mayo. Pretty sure that’s Spanish for “pasta and a show.” Because on Mondays the Windmill Lounge is hosting their new Spaghetti Western Night. So stop by next week for pasta, High West whiskey and a screening of The Outlaw Josey Wales. Spoiler alert: Clint Eastwood shoots some people.
