The Weekender

A Crazy Brunch and Surfing on a Lake

Where there’s a will, there’s a weekend.

Thursday
Breakfast Ice Creams at Melt
BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS

Breakfast Ice Creams at Melt

Ice cream. You’ve always said it should be more of a breakfast food. Apparently Melt heard you. Because now they’ve got ice creams in flavors like bacon marmalade, Earl Grey tea and Morning Juice (orange juice, coconut milk). Guess Raisin Bran ice cream will have to wait.

Through September, Melt Ice Creams, 954 W Rosedale St, Fort Worth, 817-886-8365

Friday
$2 Lobster Rolls, People
ROLL TO ME

$2 Lobster Rolls, People

East Hampton Sandwich Co.: “It’s our birthday!”
You: “Congrats! We didn’t get you anything.”
East Hampton Sandwich Co.: “That’s okay. We’re gonna celebrate with $2 lobster rolls and $1 Bloody Marys, mimosas and sangria for two days.”
You: “Sounds good! We... wish we had more friends like you.”

Surfing in the Most Unlikely Place
SURF’S UP

Surfing in the Most Unlikely Place

Lake Lewisville. Not a surfing hotbed. But all that changes with the DFW Surf Open, a surf event that’s open to beginners and experts alike. And if paddleboarding is more your speed, you can do that, too. By yourself or with your dog. So bring an extra wetsuit.

Sep 12-14, $60, Lake Lewisville Pier 121 Marina, 1481 E Hill Park Rd, Lewisville, register here

Sunday
Hotel ZaZa’s Crazy Brunch Is Back
SCHOOL DAZE

Hotel ZaZa’s Crazy Brunch Is Back

Reports out of Hotel ZaZa say they’re restocking champagne, pancakes-on-a-stick and sparklers. That can mean only one thing: the return of their infamous Sunday School brunch, featuring everything from a DJ to a dancing panda. Pro tip: stay out of the panda’s dance space.

Next Thursday
Oktoberfesting with Chef Chamberlain
High Brau

Oktoberfesting with Chef Chamberlain

Hey, you like beer and sausage. So you should know that tickets just went on sale for Brau Haus, an air-conditioned tent at Oktoberfest from Chamberlain’s Richard Chamberlain. Inside the tent, he’ll be giving you things like housemade Bavarian ham, a one-liter stein of beer and a $25 gift card. Don’t worry, it’s a big tent.

Sep 18-20, $49, Brau Haus, 4970 Addison Circle Dr, 972-934–2467, tickets here
