Your Perks: 1) An ultrathin portable battery pack with enough power to bring your phone back to life. 2) A pair of ridiculously comfortable sweatpants you’ll never want to take off. 3) A couple of stainless-steel and gold-plated watches with diamonds. For him.
Things to do for November 20, 2014
Chili, Raging Bull and Some Jousting
There once was a man from the weekend.
Two Unusual Ways to Thanksgiving
In this corner: A burger from Hopdoddy that’s basically just Thanksgiving on a bun.
Turkey patty, sage pesto, jalapeño-cornbread stuffing, ginger-cranberry chutney, gouda, bacon and brussels
In that corner: A turkey-and-cranberry klobasnek (it’s like a meat kolache) from the Bohemian Cafe.
Revamped Mexican on Henderson Ave
Mesero Miguel on Henderson is getting a name change. And a menu change. Some design updates, too. So after a quick close and revamp, it’s reopening tonight as “Mesero.” And it’ll be serving all those better-than-your-usual-Tex-Mex dishes that Mico Rodriguez is known for. You better believe there will be enchiladas.
Big bowls of hot chili are just what the doctor ordered. Especially when it’s cold, you’re hungry, and that doctor is you. Anyway, lots of chili is happening at City Tavern on Saturday. People will be cooking it. You will be eating it. And that’s how the whole thing works.
Break Out Your Tweed
There’s something called the Tweed Ride. It involves you donning some tweed, riding your bike from Downtown to Oak Cliff, and then drinking beer, playing tug-of-war and jousting other tweed-clad humans. Apparently rough, woolen fabrics make people go crazy.
On Sunday night, you can sprawl out in the grass and watch Raging Bull, drink beer and wine, and snack on picnic boxes filled with pretzel sandwiches and potato salad. But only if you show up at Strauss Square in the Arts District. That part is key.
