Two Times the Hopdoddy

Dear Hopdoddy,

Thank you for your Terlingua burger topped with chili and Fritos. Thank you for your truffle fries and that Nutella-and-chocolate-pretzel milkshake. Thank you for the beers. But most of all, thank you for opening a second location on McKinney Ave. That was thoughtful.

Sincerely,
Dallas

Saving 30% to 50% at Hadleigh’s

Not that you need a reason to drape yourself in fine things from Hadleigh’s, but... 30% to 50% off their spring collection is a fine reason. We’re talking lightweight sport coats, button-downs and other items that go nicely with both. Shoes come to mind.

Ongoing, Hadleigh’s, 74 Highland Park Village, 214-526-3777

New Chef. New Look. New LTO.
L YES

New Chef. New Look. New LTO.

Kitchen LTO is doing it again. That thing where it closes, tweaks the interior and then relaunches with a new chef and a new menu. That chef: Brooke Egger. That menu: dishes like bison tartare, an 18-ounce porterhouse and a sweet tea Cornish hen. “One hen, two straws, please.”

Now open, Kitchen LTO, 3011 Gulden Ln, Ste 108, 214-377-0757

Friday
Three-Martini Lunching at Oak
STATE OF THE CART

Three-Martini Lunching at Oak

Good news: Friday lunches have returned to Oak. Better news: they’re now paired with a rolling martini cart. So summon it over for a choice of three martinis (one classic and two not classic), then watch as your drink is prepared tableside. Then take the rest of the afternoon off.

Fridays, Oak, 1628 Oak Lawn Ave, Ste 110, 214-712-9700

Saturday
A Full Day of Horses and Beer
HORSE PLAY

A Full Day of Horses and Beer

The Belmont Stakes is Saturday. It’s in New York. That’s not close to here. But you know what is: Lone Star Park. And they’re broadcasting the Stakes live at the park, plus hosting a full day of races, wagering and cold-beer-related activities. Drinking them, mostly.

Jun 7, gates 11:30am, Lone Star Park, 1000 Lone Star Pkwy, Grand Prairie, 972-263-7223
