The Weekender

Tacos, Lawn Games and a Luau

With the first pick in this year’s NBA draft, the Minnesota Timberwolves select... the weekend.

Thursday
Time to Get in Shape
SPIN DOCTORS

Time to Get in Shape

We believe Queen said it best: “I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike. I want to ride my bicycle that I got from Peloton, this new store that’s selling high-tech stationary bikes with built-in screens so you can livestream spin classes from home.” Great song.

Saturday
This Way to the Tacos
THE WRESTLER

This Way to the Tacos

Head to Main Street Garden on Saturday, and you’ll find tacos from 15 of the city’s best taquerias. Plus bands. Lots of bands. Beer and tequila, naturally, and also: some wrestling courtesy of masked luchadores. Try to stay out of their way.

A Backyard Party at Reunion Tower
LAWN AND ORDER

A Backyard Party at Reunion Tower

There’s a new party in town, and it’s taking over the base of Reunion Tower. So much is happening. For starters:

—Many food trucks (BellaTrino, Coolhaus).
—Lawn games like bocce and cornhole.
—Plenty of beer and wine.
—Live music.

Otherwise, it’s just a regular backyard get-together.

Sunday
Sunday Is for Luaus and Pork
HIGH ON THE HOG

Sunday Is for Luaus and Pork

Luau. Just saying it conjures images of a hog roast and rum. It’s a good word. And this Sunday, it’s a word that applies to the Standard Pour, as they’ll have a band, a whole hog and plenty to drink. Finally, an appropriate time to break out your Hawaiian shirt.

Watching a Movie on Knife’s Patio
SCREEN OUT

Watching a Movie on Knife’s Patio

Here’s one of those outdoor movie screenings people like so much. It’s on Knife’s handsome patio. There you’ll eat food from John Tesar and drink beers from Four Corners. And you’ll watch Big Night, that 1996 restaurant classic with Tony Shalhoub and Stanley Tucci. Ah, so there’s a theme.

Jun 28, 8-11pm, $35, Knife, 5300 E Mockingbird Ln, 214-443-9339
