Your Perks: 1) A physical copy of the first Playboy and digital access to every issue of Playboy ever published. See, history can be sexy. 2) A box of tasting whiskeys from distilleries all around the world. 3) A nearly indestructible leather bag by way of Great Britain.
Things to do for December 11, 2014
Pop-Up Bars and Eggnog Popsicles
The bigger they are, the harder they weekend.
Capitol Pub Is Seven. Have a Drink.
Capitol Pub turns seven tonight, so they’re enlisting a DJ and a photo booth. But the best part: you can celebrate with half-price draft beer, half-price pizza and no-price gin punch. Seriously, don’t even try to pay for it.
Eggnog and Wassail, but Popsicles
You know it’s the holidays because Steel City Pops is now serving a bunch of wintry popsicles, including a bourbon-spiked eggnog, an apple cider wassail and a spruce flavor that tastes like a pine tree. A delicious, lime-accented pine tree. Watch out for needles.
Big race this Sunday. Yep, the Dallas Marathon. Maybe you’re running it. Maybe you just choked on your cheeseburger laughing at that idea. Either way, there’s a post-race block party with beer, food trucks and a band. Try not to pull something.
Five Bars in One. We’ll Explain.
Sixty-five of Texas’s best bartenders are heading to Henry’s Majestic for the most elaborate of pop-ups. There they’ll man five bars, each with a different theme (tiki, saloon, cocktail lounge). So prepare to do some tasting. Oh, and it’s all for a great cause. Drinking sure feels good sometimes.
A Very Truck Yard Kind of Christmas
Christmas is coming early to the Truck Yard. Because this Sunday they’re pouring hot cocktails, holding an ugly sweater contest and hosting a miniature Santa who sits on your lap. But you can still ask him for a new bike.
