Texas-OU Watch Party @ The Rustic

This weekend, the Dallas bars will be packed, and people will be rootin’. We suggest cheering on your Texas or OU team at The Rustic this Saturday. Get there early for a family style brunch, watch the game with other rowdy fans, and stay for a live concert from Dan Rocha Jr.

Dallas’ Best Tacos and Margaritas Tour 

Were you unable to celebrate National Taco Day on Tuesday? Well, this Saturday Desperados Restaurant is helping you get a taste of the best street tacos and margaritas in town. It is highly encouraged to wear a sombrero, so dig through your children’s costume bins! Tickets are $59 and include transportation, food, drinks and a tour guide that can teach you about the Dallas food scene.

2016 Texas BeerFest 

Love beer? Like, do you love beer so much you talk about your favorite brews to your friends on a daily basis and maybe even define yourself based on your can/bottle of choice? Then saddle up the pals and head to Fort Worth this Saturday for the 2016 Texas BeerFest. To try some of the country’s best brews, and sample some of Texas’ local breweries, buy your tickets and venture to a festival devoted to beer. Who knows, you may find a new favorite!

All Weekend

Brew & BBQ Festival 

Award winning BBQ chefs to help whet your appetite, great country music to jam to, and fresh cold brews … how else would you want to spend your weekend? This Saturday and Sunday, Traders Village is hosting their free Brew & BBQ Festival. Enjoy your BBQ ribs and brisket, y’all!

After Dark in the Park 

Parents, I think we can all agree that fall is the best time of the year to let your kiddos play outside (selfishly so you are not dripping in sweat). This weekend, River Legacy Parks is the perfect place to have some family fun. Tickets are $8 for all ages above three years old and include activities such as karaoke, pumpkin patch, bounce houses, gourmet food trucks, cotton candy, and much more.

OU/Texas Weekend: Tap House Take Over

is comin’, and the Tap House is prepared to host you and your football fan clubs. On Friday, all are invited to their pre-game party to get pumped for the big game. Fans are encouraged to continue the celebration at their enormous Dallas football watching party on Saturday. Cheer loudly and proudly everyone, it’s going to be a crowded weekend.
