Did you see this article on Deep Ellum in the New York Times a couple of weeks back? If you did, you might have noticed the reference to La Grange, a newish bar in the space that used to be Cafe Istanbul. In addition to live music, the bar also shows movies on Wednesday nights. Tonight’s selection? Better Off Dead. Popcorn is free and wine is half off, but I’m most excited about getting my hands on one of those liquored up snow cones everyone has been talking about since last weekend, when they were selling them at the HomeGrown Festival. I’m not sure how much they cost, but it’s probably around two dollars.
Also, Wicked opens tonight at the Music Hall at Fair Park. This time you can dine on the Wicked Wedge of the West and pick through Elphaba’s Entree Extravaganza at the Dining Room pre-show. Also, I didn’t know this, but you can take drinks into the Music Hall. Are you listening, Meyerson? Everything is better when I’m not parched.
