Bits & Bites: Things to Do and Chew in Dallas This Weekend

Saturday, July 7

This weekend is kind of light. Everybody is all July Fourth-ed out. In that case, you should think solidly about waking up early this Saturday to attend one of these farmers markets, and buying some of the best peaches and watermelons this season has to offer. Make this boozy watermelon rosemary lemonade once you have your hands on a fat one, then invite me over. Thanks!

Red White and Blue Times Two. Maybe not everyone is done with July 4. The Mansion is still celebrating our independence along with Bastille Day with a menu that includes peach cobber and French Riviera Boullabaise.

Independence Day Smokeout at the Grail. If you haven’t gotten enough barbecue yet, The Holy Grail is offering short ribs, “bacon-injected brisket,” house-made hot dogs, beer can chicken, summer seasonal beer, and vodka-fruit infusions.

Deep Ellum Brewery Tour. A beer tour? Who can say ‘no’ to a beer tour? For $10 you get free beer, a look-see, and a glass to take home.

Jump with me.

Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz. You’re a geek, I’m a geek, we’re all geeks at heart. But how much do you know about celebrities? Which historical site did Ozzy Osbourne urinate in? (The Alamo) How many times has Tom Cruise jumped on a couch? (Too many to count) Well, show off your fancyschmancy brain skills at the House of Blues if you got ‘em.
