A rare beer dinner and... U-S-A! U-S-A!

Dallas Event of the Week
Thursday night at The Flying Saucer they will be tapping Firestone Walker's ultra-rare Sucaba (a barrel-aged barleywine) to go along with a four-course beer dinner that will include a Springtime arugula salad paired with their Easy Jack IPA, Caribbean jerk chicken street tacos paired with a Union Jack IPA, mole-spiced pork loin paired with an also-quite-rare Parabola Russian Imperial Stout, and will end with a caramel apple funnel cake with vanilla and dark chocolate crème paired with that Sucaba.

Thursday, June 26th: The Grape has been cooking up some of the finest eats in Dallas for many years now, and tonight they will be pairing said deliciousness with wine from Spain.

A wine expert will talk you through the night and reservations are recommended.

Friday, June 27th: Don't plan any ocean trips for a while, because Jaws will be playing Friday night at the McKinney Performing Arts Center. Grab some popcorn, some candy, and an adult beverage or three and settle in to enjoy a Summer cinematic classic.

Saturday, June 28th: Apparently people don’t go on “real dates” anymore, so Cane Rosso is joining a movement to bring chivalry back. They’re offering a date night special for $30 that will include a pizza, a salad, and a mini-carafe of wine. So dress up, pick your girl up at the door, don’t honk the horn, and be respectable for once.

Saturday, June 28th: This is Texas and Merle Haggard is sort of a legend around here. So, if you want to hear a legendary performance at a legendary spot in Texas from a legendary man, then clear your calendar for Saturday night and head out to hear this Okie from Muskogee do his thing at Billy Bob's.
