Your Perks: 1) Tom Ford sunglasses at half off. What? How? Don’t you worry your pretty little head. 2) A flying palm-size HD-camera drone. Huge for your Vine game. 3) A vintage Rolex. A vintage Omega Seamaster 120. A vintage Cartier watch. A vintage... well, you get the idea.
Things to do for April 09, 2015
Two Brunches and One Poutine Burger
Weekends, now two for a dollar.
The Season Opens at Lone Star Park
For a Thursday that’s different from your recent Thursdays, try Lone Star Park. Because the racing season starts tonight. So have some bourbon, place some bets and watch a bunch of horses run quickly around an oval while carrying smaller-than-average men on their backs.
11 Days of Film Festing
The Dallas International Film Fest is here, so you’ve got 11 days to do these things:
—Attend a filmmaker panel.
—Meet some actors at a post-screening party.
—Watch people walk down a red carpet.
—Try to see all 160 movies.
It’s good to have goals.
It’s Poutine. It’s a Burger. It’s Both.
The mad burger scientists at Hopdoddy have a new condiment. It’s... poutine. See, they’re placing gravy-smothered Kennebec fries, cheddar and caramelized onions atop a beef patty. Which is topped with a fried egg. Which is delicious. We owe you one, Canada.
A Brunch and a “Brunch”
Three compelling options for Sunday brunch:
1) Proof + Pantry, which is adding a DJ and porrons of rosé to its brunch service.
2) Double Wide, which is opening during daylight hours with food from Easy Slider, live music and jerky-infused moonshine Bloody Marys.
3) Leftover Easter candy.
Gratis Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, Here
It’s here. National Grilled Cheese Day. So to celebrate, Norma’s is doling out a gratis grilled cheese sandwich to everyone who walks through the door on Monday. Hey, you don’t make the holidays. You just comply with them.
