Your Perks: 1) Smokeless fireplaces that go on a desk or hang on a wall and pair well with wine. And fall. 2) A stunning Italian corkscrew. Marvel at it. Or, you know, open a Bordeaux with it. 3) A couple grooming kits with face wash, moisturizer, aftershave and the like. Treat your face right.
Things to do for October 30, 2014
A New Bar, Halloween and a Hangover Brunch
By the pricking of my thumbs, something weekend this way comes.
A Historic Bar, Revived
A couple months back, the historic Greenville Bar & Grill took over its old spot, most recently occupied by the Londoner. And now it’s officially open with a slightly new look and a very new menu. Think rabbit pot pies and pork chops. Then think about getting a beer. Oh, happy thoughts.
A New Brewery Is Always Good News
Here’s what you need to know about Audacity Brew House:
1. It’s making a handful of beers (pale ale, chili porter).
2. It’s got a large taproom for tasting those beers.
3. It’s got a large patio for being outside.
4. It’s in Denton.
5. Denton is north of us.
Going All Drinks-and-Dancing at Dram
If you need some last-minute Halloween plans, swing by the Dram for their “Angels and Demons” party. You can expect cocktails, a DJ, some dancing, partygoers with unusually naughty interpretations of what an angel may look like... and probably one very confused guy dressed as Dan Brown.
The Post-Halloween Brunch You Require
It’s Saturday morning. You’re wandering the streets, still in costume, hungry and reconsidering your life choices. Yeah. You should really get to So & So’s for their hangover brunch. Find solace in chilaquiles, Bloody Marys and other nonjudgmental, brunch-related miracles.
Día de los Muertos–ing at La Ventana
As part of your Halloween recovery, swing by Taqueria La Ventana for a slower-paced celebration. This time, it’s the other face-painting holiday: Día de los Muertos. There will be beer, mezcal and tacos, plus a ceremonial altar. Be generous, but not with your tacos.
