Things to do for August 14, 2014

The Weekender

Martinis. Burgers. Cheese. Weekend.

Keep your hands and feet inside the weekend at all times.

Thursday
Have a Burger. No, Don’t Get Up.
BECK AND CALL

Have a Burger. No, Don’t Get Up.

Sometimes you want a cheeseburger. Sometimes you want a steak. And many times you want both, on your couch, without having to get dressed. Becks Prime understands this. That’s why their Oak Lawn location is now delivering straight to your home. Or your office. Maybe be dressed for that.

Now delivering, $50 minimum, Becks Prime, 4002 Oak Lawn Ave, 214-559-4120

A Better Way to Hail Cabs
CURB APPEAL

A Better Way to Hail Cabs

In the event you occasionally need rides to places, you should really meet Curb. It used to be Taxi Magic, but now it’s better. More cars and a sleeker app for hailing said cars. And you can pay with a credit card right through your phone. No, not your landline.

Hope You Like Cheese
CHEESE WHIZ

Hope You Like Cheese

You know what’s great about cheese? Wait, no, that’ll take too long. Let’s just discuss this new cheese den in Frisco. It’s called Cheezies (makes sense), and it’s serving up a menu full of grilled cheese sandwiches and dressed-up versions of mac and cheese. Anyway, cheese.

Friday
Tacos, Beer and Music. At the Nasher.
NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM

Tacos, Beer and Music. At the Nasher.

So, the Nasher. Nice sculptures and stuff. Also, nice garden. And tomorrow, people will fill that garden for live music (Whiskey Folk Ramblers) and street tacos while makeshift bars sell beer and wine. Hey, they gotta pay the rent.

Saturday
20 Martinis Should Be Enough
STIR THINGS UP

20 Martinis Should Be Enough

Quality... quantity... with martinis, we’ll take both. So this Cool River Cafe event called Martini Fest sounds promising. Because there you’ll find 20 vodkas being mixed into 20 different martinis for your sampling enjoyment. Maybe have a sandwich or something, too.
