Keeping Warm with Spiked Yoo-hoo
SOME LIKE IT HOT

Keeping Warm with Spiked Yoo-hoo

Double Wide: a bastion of craft cocktailery, it’s not. But if you’re looking for some spiked Yoo-hoo, then yes. And now the bar’s serving up warm drinks, like a hot White Russian, a moonshine-cider concoction and Yoo-hoo with Rumple Minze and whipped cream. It’s what the holidays are all about.

Available now at Double Wide, 3510 Commerce St, 214-887-6510

81-Cent Drinks Probably Sound Good
GOOD CENTS

81-Cent Drinks Probably Sound Good

December 5, 1933, marked the end of Prohibition. December 5, 2014, marks the day that Victor Tangos celebrates the end of Prohibition with 81-cent Sazeracs and rum punches. So, fair warning, there’ll be some pennies to deal with.

Dec 5, 5-8pm, Victor Tangos, 3001 N Henderson Ave, 214-252-8595

Saturday
A Tree Lighting with Soba and Whiskey
LET THERE BE LIGHT

A Tree Lighting with Soba and Whiskey

You can skip most Christmas tree lightings. Because most Christmas tree lightings don’t have live jazz, bowls of soba from Tei-An and Irish coffees from Proof + Pantry. This one does, though. You may have inferred that.

A DJ-and-Champagne Kind of Birthday
NICE VU

A DJ-and-Champagne Kind of Birthday

Le Vú turns two on Saturday. But unlike most two year olds, this one’s celebrating with cocktails, champagne and dancing atop tables. Tack on one DJ Helena (an import from Vegas), and you’ve got yourself a party. Try not to get a sparkler in the eye.

Dec 6, 9pm, no cost, Le Vú, 2505 Pacific Ave, reserve at 214-280-0738
