Things to do for May 22, 2014

The Weekender

Margaritas, Tacos and Beers. Sounds About Right.

For the weekend, press one.

Thursday
This... This Is How You Picnic
BASKET CASE

This... This Is How You Picnic

There’s picnicking (subs, Doritos, juice boxes). And then there’s Grill on the Alley–style picnicking (filet mignon, shrimp cocktail, red wine). Option two, yes, you’ll take that one. So make Memorial Day plans that include these guys packing you one hell of a sack lunch. Just beware of thieving bears.

The Glorious Return of La Banqueta
SHELL YES

The Glorious Return of La Banqueta

When Tacos La Banqueta’s East Dallas location closed, the world lost a trusted taco-slinging friend. But hey, it’s back now. And just across the street from the original. So reacquaint yourself with al pastor and suadero tacos with a side of Mexican Coke. Yep, it’s just like riding a bike.

Now open, Tacos La Banqueta, 1305 N Carroll Ave

Saturday
Shave and a Haircut. And a Beer.
SO FLY

Shave and a Haircut. And a Beer.

We don’t want to make a thing of it, but some people are saying you need a haircut. So swing by the Rustic on Saturday for beers and a burger, then stick around for a trim. Because the Airstream cuttery, Fly Barbershop, will be on site with scissors. And someone to wield them.

Sunday
Lakewood Beers and Some Volleyball
SWIM FAN

Lakewood Beers and Some Volleyball

Memorial Day weekend. It was just made for pool parties. Also: beer, burgers, sand volleyball and shooting your friends with water cannons. And that’s exactly how you’ll spend Sunday if you show up to this Lakewood Brewing Co. shindig. Decisions, decisions.

May 25, 8am-5pm, $7, Fraternal Order of Eagles, 8500 Arturo Dr, 214-327-9563

A Margarita Battle in Bishop Arts
LIME LIGHT

A Margarita Battle in Bishop Arts

On Sunday night, you should really get to Bishop Arts. Because that’s where a bunch of margaritologists are gathering to craft Milagro-spiked beverages for your general enjoyment (and cash prizes). Your only job: sampling and levying judgment on all 31 entrants. Hey, we never said it’d be easy.
