Dallas, you should do these 5 things this weekend
Event of the Week
It’s not every day that three of the best things on Earth gather in one place, but the stars align this weekend. And by stars, we mean the Beer, Bourbon, and Brisket Fest. The Panther Island Pavilion is bringing in BBQ, live music from several local acts, and plenty of brews & brown liquor. Occupy the rest of your time with drinking-friendly games like ladder golf and bean bag toss. Tickets for the beer/bourbon tasting portion are sold out, but there's a cash bar (and BBQ for sale), so get those general admission tickets.
Thursday, September 18th: Four different establishments around the Main Street area in Deep Ellum are opening their doors and their wine bottles for the Deep Ellum Wine Walk. You will walk (probably not in the straightest of lines) away from the event with a commemorative glass and plenty of tasty wine in your belly.
Thursday, September 18th-Sunday, September 21st: The city of Addison does some things quite well, including putting on a damn fine Oktoberfest that's recognized as one of America's most authentic. Lederhosen! The Schuhplattler! Oompah bands! More beer and sausage than you can reasonably be expected to handle! Get there.
Friday, September 19th: Flora and Harwood streets will be completely shut down from 6pm-midnight for the Dallas Arts District Fall Block Party, so you can enjoy some of the city's best food trucks, live music, guided museum tours, and other activities hosted by the Crow Collection of Asian Art, the Dallas Museum of Art, and Nasher Sculpture Center. Admission to all three museums is FREE!
Sunday, September 21st: Remember Conor Oberst? The guy from Bright Eyes who may or may not have helped you get through Cindy breaking your heart sophomore year? Well, he's going to be playing under the night sky at the Annette Strauss Square, so get ready to feel all the feelings.
