The Perks of summer: 1) 30% off dapper sneakers (the kinds you can wear sans socks) from Amsterdam Shoe Co. 2) Ultra-lightweight hammocks that feel like cozy kangaroo pouches. 3) A no-electricity-required bamboo amplifier for your smartphone. Bring it wherever summer takes you...
Things to do for June 12, 2014
Beer, Tequila and Brunch. Thanks, Weekend.
Let the best weekend win.
The World Cup’s Most Important Beer
The World Cup starts today, which means... hopefully you’re reading this at a bar. And hopefully that bar is tuned to Brazil vs. Croatia. And hopefully you chose one of the many bars around town (the Common Table, Dallas Beer Kitchen) who’re stocking Thrilla in Brazilla, the just-released, limited-run IPA from Peticolas. Yeah, hopefully.
Saving Up to 50% at Billy Reid
By all means, stick to swimwear and shirtlessness whenever possible. But when occasions call for clothes, there’s Billy Reid. Especially now that a bunch of their summer-appropriate body covers (polos, button-downs, cotton blazers) are up to 50% off. That’s a fraction of the price. Yes, 1/2. You know your fractions.
New Brunching in Bishop Arts
Stock & Barrel, now that’s one fine dinner place... is what you used to say. But they start brunch service on Friday, so amend your saying accordingly. Then swing by for pork cheek hash, smoked-salmon fried rice and something egg-related. You knew there’d be something egg-related.
Pretending to Cheer for Mexico
The World Cup is all about loyalty. Allegiances. Unity. Unless there’s gratis tequila on the line, in which case, all bets are off. So when Mexico plays, get to Cubiertos for guacamole, ceviche and margaritas. And when they score, it’s tequila shots for everyone. Uh, go Mexico?
Ain’t No Party Like a Bridge Party
If you’re into infrastructure, you should really check out the Trinity River Revel on Sunday. Because they’re celebrating a couple new bridges and pedestrian-friendly things with a beer garden, food trucks, live music and a pop-up driving range. Though feel free to attend if you’re into any of that stuff, too.
