Things to do for July 24, 2015
Ramen, Cashmere and a Watermelon Massage
Live life to the weekendest.
A Store for Everything Cashmere
There’s a new store called Kit and Ace. Inside: racks, shelves and mannequins sporting a bunch of cashmere-blend T-shirts, shorts and henleys (heavier stuff comes this fall). All of it is very soft and very washable. Really, you can wash it. Anyway, swing by sometime if you like being comfortable.
A Bar in Addison. A Bar on the Lake.
In this corner: Ron’s Place, a casual Addison hangout that’s flush with beers, whiskey
In that corner: A new beer spot near Lake Lewisville called Little Elm Crafthouse. Go there for draft beers and growlers on your way to the lake.
The takeaway: Two new bars.
A Date-Worthy Night at the Arboretum
Here’s something new and date-related at the Dallas Arboretum. Tonight you can stroll through the gardens listening to strategically positioned musicians, snacking at food trucks (BellaTrino, Ruthie’s) and drinking whatever you packed in your cooler. Like beer, or maybe a juice box.
Watermelon’s Not Just for Eating
Because it’s hot out there, Hiatus wants to scrub you with watermelon seeds, cane sugar and mint. That’s followed by a crushed-watermelon wrap and a mint scalp massage, and the whole thing ends with a cocktail. That’s a damn summery massage.
Here’s a New Ramen Joint
Monta Ellis: gone. But replacing him is Monta Ramen, a from-Vegas noodle joint that won’t help the Mavs but will help your consumption of tonkotsu ramen and chashu pork. And that’s something.
