Your Perks: 1) A sleek carafe that uses charcoal to naturally mineralize your drinking water. (It’s an ancient Japanese thing.) 2) A summer six-pack of rich, crisp, Tuscany-bred Chianti—for $105. 3) A Perks-approved deal on any work of art at Crated—the Internet’s newest art gallery. A little culture never killed anyone.
Things to do for July 10, 2014
Beef Jerky, Rooftop Beers and Celebrating France
If at first you don’t succeed, weekend, weekend again.
So. Much. Jerky.
A jerky wonderland has opened in Fort Worth. It’s called the Beef Jerky Outlet, which makes sense. Inside you’ll find beef jerky, sure, but also other jerky like kangaroo and alligator. It’s great snack food for cattle drives. Or for driving home from Fort Worth.
And Now, Have Some Juice
Conveniently, you just got two new options for drinking juice.
Daily Juice: Go there for smoothies, wheatgrass shots and kombucha on tap, plus the occasional kale salad.
Buda Juice: Go there for cold-pressed juices and detoxifying cleanses.
You can resume your barbecue-and-beer diet tomorrow.
A Whole Lot Is Happening Here
Sometimes breweries are more than just breweries. Sometimes they are staging grounds for 30-plus vendors to hawk their wares (everything from art to growlers) while you play sand volleyball, shoot people with water guns and patronize food trucks. This is one of those times.
You could spend your Saturday evening one of many ways. For starters, you could climb to the Tei-An rooftop, where you’ll be awash in Asahi beers, Japanese snacks, a DJ and a fine view of Downtown. Or you could... no, you should probably just go with this.
A Party for All Things French
On Monday, you’ll want to head to Bishop Arts for a little thing called Bastille on Bishop. Because there you’ll find a party celebrating all things French. We’re talking wine, pétanque, crepes, cancan dancers and probably some berets. Also: a muscles competition. No, wait. Mussels. Yeah, that’s better.
