Things to do for December 24, 2014

The Weekender

Christmas Beers, Warm Sweaters and Bruce Willis

It’s beginning to look a lot like weekend.

30% Off Warm Things

30% Off Warm Things

Hopefully you’ve finished all your Christmas shopping. That way you can keep this J. Hilburn sale all to yourself. Because they’ve taken 30% off sweaters and outerwear like shawl-collar cardigans and wool overcoats. But for Pete’s sake, man, wear some pants.

Through Dec 31, J. Hilburn, 2727 W Mockingbird Ln, Ste 103, 972-338-2210

Die Hard Tonight, Christmas Tomorrow

<em>Die Hard</em> Tonight, Christmas Tomorrow

Now here’s something that’ll get you in the holiday spirit. It’s 132 minutes of 1988-era Bruce Willis blowing things up, fighting German terrorists and proving that Christmas Eve is a time for fireside eggnog, not crime. Yippee ki-yay.

Dec 24, 7pm, $12, Alamo Drafthouse, 100 S Central Expy, Richardson, 972-534-2120

Beer and Cookies > Milk and Cookies

Beer and Cookies > Milk and Cookies

In case you got bad Christmas presents... you can remedy that disappointment at Flying Saucer. They’re tapping oatmeal stouts and serving oatmeal cookies and beer-ice-cream sandwiches. Somewhere, Santa feels shortchanged.

Dec 25, 5pm, Flying Saucer, 4821 Bass Pro Dr, Garland, 972-226-0725

Two Days of Dancing and DJs

Two Days of Dancing and DJs

Well, that was some good family time. But now let’s get up, stretch our legs and proceed to dance with strangers. For that, there’s Lights All Night, a crazy two-day dance fest with DJs, art installations, laser shows and plenty of bars for making all those things roughly 62% better.

Hey, Another Smoke. Good.

Hey, Another Smoke. Good.

You know Smoke. Tim Byres’s ode to barbecued meats. Right. Now you can know it twice, because they’re opening an outpost in Plano with 5,800 square feet of prime brisket-eating real estate. There’s even a big wood-fired hearth they’ll employ for grilling and roasting stuff. Probably not s’mores, though.

Slated to open by Monday, Smoke, 2408 Preston Rd, Plano
