Collide With Justine Skye At Cambridge Room, Tell It Like It Is With Lindi Ortega At Club Dada And Jam At The Breakaway Festival At The Pavilion At Toyota Music Factory.

So a really cool event debuted last week and it’s one focused on eating and celebrating all things meat.

Inspired by the Japanese “Meat Day,” Niwa Japanese BBQ will celebrate the holiday on the 29th of every month. The restaurant will be offering a $29 platter with an assortment of meats and other $2.90-priced specials.

The whole thing came about because the Japanese word for 29 (ni-kyuu) sounds a lot like the word for meat (niku). So yeah, talk about making the most of puns.

So while that may have already passed, there’s plenty of things to do to keep you busy until April 29, as you can see from the list we’ve put together below. Feel free to use this as your guide to week. Have a good one out there, Dallas.
