Things to do for February 26, 2015

The Weekender

Sushi, Chili and The Goonies

When it rains, it weekends.

Chili Sounds Good

Chili Sounds Good

Times like these call for big bowls of hot chili. Also beers. Lots of beers. Find both at the Ginger Man this Saturday, as they host a chili cook-off. Your job, should you choose to accept it: sample every chili there. You accept it.

Twenty Seven Does Late-Night

Twenty Seven Does Late-Night

You can eat a really good dinner at Twenty Seven. And you should. But if you just want drinks, swing by late on Saturday nights. Because they’re keeping the bar open and serving gin- and whiskey-laced cocktails until 2am. They’re calling it “XXVII Antique.” Roman numerals make everything fancy.

Saturdays, midnight-2am, Twenty Seven, 2901 Elm St, 972-803-3265

A Leisurely Sunday of Sushi

A Leisurely Sunday of Sushi

If your Sundays are conspicuously absent of half-price sushi and $3 champagne, then you’d better hurry over to Lounge 31. Because starting this Sunday, they’re offering both. Also, they’ll have “Dueling DJs.” Fifteen paces and pistols, we suspect.

Sundays, half-price sushi all day, drink specials 11am-4pm, Lounge 31, 87 Highland Park Village, Ste 200, 214-420-3900

’80s Movies and $3 Beers

’80s Movies and $3 Beers

Let’s say you’re behind on your coming-of-age ’80s movies. Well, you can catch up quickly at the Granada, where they’re showing a couple classics back-to-back on Sunday. First, The Goonies. Then, Stand by Me. They’ve also got $3 beers and shot specials. They always find a way to get you.

Mar 1, The Goonies 4:30pm, Stand by Me 7pm, $3 cover, Granada Theater, 3524 Greenville Ave, 214-824-9933

Celebrating Texas at the Rustic

Celebrating Texas at the Rustic

On March 2, 1836, Texas declared its independence from Mexico. On March 2, 2015, the Rustic celebrates that independence with Texas beers, wine popsicles and live music. Now, this being a free land, you don’t have to participate. But that would be borderline seditious.

Mar 2, 5-8pm, The Rustic, 3656 Howell St, 214-730-0596
