The Weekender

Hot Dogs and Custard in Deep Ellum

Tonight we dine in weekend.

Thursday
Denton Gets a Brewpub
ON BOARD

Denton Gets a Brewpub

If you find yourself in Denton, quickly find yourself at Barley & Board. It’s a new brewpub, so you know there will be beer. But what you might not know: there will also be hanger steak, quail and other good things to eat. That’s where the “board” comes into play.

Saving Up to 50% at J.Hilburn
FEEL THE BURN

Saving Up to 50% at J.Hilburn

Linen-blend shorts. Cotton-twill pants. Soft polos. These are the things summer is made of. Well, this stuff plus sunshine, beer, patios... we could go on. But instead we’ll just say that J.Hilburn is currently offering said items for up to 50% off. The clothes, not the patios.

Ongoing, J.Hilburn, 2727 W Mockingbird Ln, Ste 103, 972-338-2210

Friday
Hot Dogs and Custard in Deep Ellum
GENERAL CUSTARD

Hot Dogs and Custard in Deep Ellum

If places were actually sensations, this place would taste like hot dogs, burgers and frozen custard. Because this place is Wild About Harry’s, that longtime bastion of those things we just said. Anyway, a new location opens Friday in Deep Ellum. Go to it.

Saturday
Here’s a 1,000-Foot Slip ’N Slide
LET IT SLIDE

Here’s a 1,000-Foot Slip ’N Slide

Remember when you were a kid and you’d hose down the Slip ’N Slide before diving headfirst and thereby propelling yourself forward about 30 feet? This is basically that, except it’s 1,000 feet long. And therefore better. Kids don’t even know.

Working Out, but in a Brewery
PULLING ONE’S KEG

Working Out, but in a Brewery

A typical workout: some cardio, some weights and that’s that. But this workout is different, because it’s a beer-related circuit-training class with a 10th-degree black belt from Chamberlain Studios of Self Defense. It involves keg pulls, hoisting grains of barley, punching things and drinking beer. You’ve got to replenish those electrolytes.
