Things to do for October 23, 2014

The Weekender

Eating Oysters and Carving Pumpkins

A weekend can’t change its spots.

Thursday
A Fire-Cooked Dinner at the Foundry
LOST AND FOUNDRY

A Fire-Cooked Dinner at the Foundry

Let’s see here. You’ve got:
—A Louisiana-themed menu with things cooked over open fires (smoked rabbit sausage, roast pork, boudin).
—Beer. Cocktails, too.
—Live music.
—All of that converging for one night at the Foundry.

This just might work.

Friday
Knife Does Lunch Now. Act Accordingly.
THE GOOD KNIFE

Knife Does Lunch Now. Act Accordingly.

For steaks and cocktails, go to Knife. For lunch, go to not Knife. Yep, that’s the usual formula. But that’s all changed, because now they’re serving midday meals. So prepare yourself for things like Reubens and Cubans and... banh mi. Sorry, ran out of rhyming foods.

Daily, 11am-2:30pm, Knife, 5300 E Mockingbird Ln, 214-443-9339

Saturday
Kickball, on a Golf Course, with Beer
SCRAMBLE ON

Kickball, on a Golf Course, with Beer

You’re going to the golf course, but leave your clubs at home. Won’t need those. Some soccer cleats might be nice, though. Because this is a Halloween-themed kickball scramble, and this exists because... no idea. But there’s beer, so you’ll allow it.

Sunday
This Is Where the Oysters Are
SHUCKIN’

This Is Where the Oysters Are

We found the oysters. They’re at this Chefs for Farmers party, where some local restaurants (Gemma, Proof + Pantry, TJ’s) will be shucking and serving many, many bivalves. For drinking: wine and cocktails. For listening: DJ Souljah. For divination: a tarot card reader. This took an odd turn.

Monday
Drink a Beer, Carve a Pumpkin
PUMP IT UP

Drink a Beer, Carve a Pumpkin

Sometimes you just want a quiet evening, where you can sip a beer, decoratively maim a pumpkin and be judged for your efforts. How does Monday at the Libertine sound? Hopefully good, because that’s when it’s happening.
