Finally. 3) A slim, lightweight portable phone charger so you never have to fight over outlets while traveling. Or at your family’s house during the holidays.
Things to do for November 13, 2014
A New French Place. Also, Barbecue.
Over my dead weekend.
Going All French in Fort Worth
Meet Le Cep. It’s in Fort Worth, and it’s a new French spot with white tablecloths, a glass-enclosed wine room and tasting menus comprised of four or eight courses. Better play it safe... opt for eight.
It’s been one year since the Woolworth first plied Downtown with cocktails and truffle fries. And that’s reason to celebrate. So tonight, swing by for gratis hors d’oeuvres, stiff drinks and some live music. Yes, your attendance counts as a gift.
Parks are great. Especially when you fill all that green space with 30-plus teams competing to serve you the very best barbecue. It’s not all fun and games, though, because you’ll be tasked with choosing the winner. Remember, beer’s a great palate cleanser.
Steven Alan: a store, yes, but also a real live human person. And he’s in town Saturday for the brand’s 20th anniversary. You can expect to see a special anniversary collection, plus some Shinola watches, a food truck and bourbon. That last one you can see and drink.
Your Feet Will Enjoy This
Mickey Ashmore makes fine leather slip-ons based on traditional Turkish slippers. Brand’s called Sabah. They’re nice. And this Saturday, he’s having some people over to hang out, have a drink and inspect the wares. So you can now scratch yourself off your holiday gift list.
