The Weekender

Tacos, a Beer Party and Cocktails in Coconuts

A boy’s best friend is his weekend.

Thursday
Tacos. This Involves Tacos.
MAS APPEAL

Tacos. This Involves Tacos.

Tacos y Mas is one step closer to world domination. Well, taco domination. Close enough. See, they just opened a new location on Greenville in the old Quesa-D-Ya’s spot. Oh, it’s got tacos all right. More, too, if the name’s to be believed.

Friday
Cocktails in Coconuts. Let It Be So.
CUCKOO FOR COCO... NUTS

Cocktails in Coconuts. Let It Be So.

You should really swing through Truck Yard this weekend. Because there you’ll learn to hammer open coconuts, thereby preparing them to be spiked with a trio of Jason Kosmas–created rum and gin cocktails. Coconuts. They’re nature’s cups.

Aug 1-2, 5pm, Truck Yard, 5624 Sears St, 469-500-0139

Saturday
Strangeways Is Having a Birthday
STRANGE BREW

Strangeways Is Having a Birthday

On Saturday, Strangeways turns three, and they requested your presence. No, really, they did. They even asked us to tell you that they’re tapping a bunch of sours and bourbon-barrel-aged gems while a DJ does DJ things. This three-year-old sure knows how to party.

Aug 2, doors 4pm, party 9pm-2am, Strangeways, 2429 N Fitzhugh Ave, 214-823-7800

Drinking Beer at a Bike Shop
BIKE CURIOUS

Drinking Beer at a Bike Shop

We know what you’re thinking. Saturday evening, gotta hit the bicycle shop. Exactly. Because the new Dallas Bike Works in Bishop Arts is hosting a grand-opening celebration that’s full of food and beer and spinning records. Maybe not the best time to get a tune-up.

Wednesday
Dumb & Dumber & Whiskey
STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES

Dumb & Dumber & Whiskey

The new Dumb & Dumber comes out this fall, so you’d better brush up on the original. Ideally with a glass of whiskey in hand while engaging in some type of rooftop-screening situation. Like next Wednesday at Sundown. Our job here is done.
