Now’s the Time for Ice Cream

Hey. New ice cream. It’s called Roomies, and you can find it starting tonight at the Farmers Market. Just look for the little stand that’s doling out waffle cones of tres leches and peanut butter ice cream. And then get both. Because you have two hands, see.

Here’s a New Taproom for You

On Friday, Grapevine Craft Brewery opens the doors to its new taproom and beer garden. There you can sample beers while listening to live music and eating things from food trucks in what’s perhaps the most weekend-y combo of activities.

Margaritas, Small Burgers and Haircuts
A CLOSE SHAVE

Margaritas, Small Burgers and Haircuts

You can get a good haircut and shave at the Gents Place. This Friday, you can also get a good margarita and a smaller-than-usual hamburger. That’s because they’re hosting a party with tequila drinks and food from Easy Slider. Your barber only wants the best for you.

Saturday
A 1,000-Foot Slip ’N Slide in Oak Cliff
SLIDE RULE

A 1,000-Foot Slip ’N Slide in Oak Cliff

You’re familiar with Slip ’N Slides. Well, this thing is basically a 1,000-foot Slip ’N Slide, and it’s coming to Oak Cliff this weekend for your amusement. That’s it, really. Have fun.

Tuesday
Mussels and Macarons in Bishop Arts
SONG AND FRANCE

Mussels and Macarons in Bishop Arts

To eat: Mussels, crepes and macarons.
To drink: Plenty of French wine.
To do: Shop some vendors, dance in the streets and play pétanque.

But first: look up rules to pétanque.
