The Weekender

Pop-Up Bars and Eggnog Popsicles

The bigger they are, the harder they weekend.

Thursday
Capitol Pub Is Seven. Have a Drink.
NIGHT CAP

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.

Dec 11, 4pm-close, Capitol Pub, 2401 N Henderson Ave, 214-887-9330

Saturday
Eggnog and Wassail, but Popsicles
POP STAR

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.

Sunday
Run or Don’t Run. Either Way, Beer.
MARATHON MAN

Run or Don’t Run. Either Way, Beer.

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.

Dec 14, 9:30am-3:30pm, Wood St at Lamar St

Five Bars in One. We’ll Explain.
OH HENRY

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
THE SANTA CLAUSE

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.

Dec 14, 8-11pm, Truck Yard, 5624 Sears St, 469-500-0139
