Weekend Guide: Tacos, Bluegrass and Pancakes Editions


It’s almost Thanksgiving, but before you have to go home and talk to family members, you can make the most of everything Dallas has going on this week. It’s a lot of tacos — shocker — plus some bluegrass, some markets and a pop-up show that has to be seen to be believed.

Saturday & Sunday, November 17 & 18 | Texas Live

Another weekend, another taco festival. We’re not complaining. This two-day taco party at Texas Live features more than 30 vendors plus a build-you-own-marg bar (a need) plus corn hole and a tequila sampling expo. Bonus: Watch the Cowboys on Texas Live’s massive screens on Sunday.

Saturday, November 17 | Granada Theater

Nothing goes with a cool fall night like some quality bluegrass. Greensky brings their emotive lyrics and jam tendencies to Granada for an evening that every white dude with a beard has had circled for the last month. We can’t always be around a fire drinking a tasty brew but we think this is a nice consolation.

Saturday, November 17 | 2513 Main Street

This pop-up party has everything: Pancakes, booze, live body painting. Head to Deep Ellum for a night to remember. If you want to see some live art, be sure to explore our performance piece where we eat 40 pancakes in the corner while growling.

Saturday, November 17 | Highland Park Village

And now, for something completely different. This open-air market in HP Village is 180 degrees from a pop-up pancake and booze party. For starters, you can bring the kids to this one. But who knows, maybe one of the vendors will be selling pancakes. Never enough pancakes, we always say.

Sunday, November 18 | The Rustic

Tacos are everything, so The Rustic is teaming up with NoCoast Beer Co. and North Texas Food Bank for an afternoon with carnitas tacos right from the pig, craft beer as far as the eye can see and Dem Boys on the big screen. Proceeds will benefit the NTFB so do a Sunday Funday for a cause. It’s almost Thanksgiving, after all.
