Blow Up The Outside World.
Aging a good whiskey takes years. It's a real problem, because in recent years, whiskey has become America's second favorite hard liquor, and its popularity is still on the rise. Meaning it can't just be cranked out to meet demand.
One bright mind has come up with an idea to increase the surface area of the vessels whiskey is aged in, therefore rapidly speeding up the infusing process, by aging it directly in bottles made of oak.
Similarly, we've attempted to speed up the process by which you decide what to do with yourself this evening. Here's some quick and dirty suggestions to help aid in that endeavor. — Cory Graves
13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi at AT&T Stadium (Free)
There's a movie coming out about the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans dead. It's called 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. Noted explosion-aficionado Michael Bay is directing it. The turncoat from The Departed, who was also in The Pacific, is in it. So, too, is Porn Stache from Orange Is The New Black/Nicky Sobotka from The Wire. Weirdest of all, Jim from The Office is in it, too. I'm sure this one's gonna play great outside of America. Anyway, I bring all this up because of the following, just-this-week-announced news: For whatever reason, the world premiere of this thing is going down tonight in Arlington. Why? We're not sure! But the cast will be there. So will Bay. Also odd? Grunge vocal icon Chris Cornell will be performing at the sucker, too. Oh, and you can go, too! For free! Just head right here to RSVP some tickets for your chance to watch the movie as it shows on Jerry Jones' big ol' HD screen. — Pete Freedman
The Magnificent Seven at The Magnolia
Before the Ridiculous Six or the Hateful Eight, there was John Struges' classic western The Magnificent Seven, a star-studded retelling of Kurosawa's Seven Samurai set in the American West.

Chopped Jr Watch Party at Chino Chinatown
The 11-year-old daughter of former food TV star Uno Immanivong (Chino Chinatown) is poised to follow in her mother's footsteps with an up-and-coming Food Network appearance. “Epicurious” Emma Immanivong's Chopped Junior debut adds to an already impressive resume that includes her own YouTube channel and modeling for national campaigns, per Eater Dallas's Amy McCarthy. To celebrate the episode's premiere tonight, Chino Chinatown will be hosting a watch party where Emma will whip up some of the dishes served on the show. — Porttia Portis
Whip It at Alamo Drafthouse
Drew Barrymore's 2009 directorial debut focuses on the all female, full contact sport that is roller derby. It's girls in skirts, stockings, pigtails and skates taking care of business and releasing the angst they've accumulated, and catching a screening of it tonight is the perfect way to kick of Assassination City Derby's upcoming season. The team will be present at this event. — Diamond Victoria
Bill Murray Trivia at Grapevine Craft Brewing
Bill Murray could never make another movie and his status as The Coolest Guy on Earth would be cemented. The comedy pro has never won an Oscar, but he's one of the most dedicated and selective actors in Hollywood. Actors of his age are known to phone it in, but Murray always goes for it, even in misguided efforts like Garfield, Hyde Park on Hudson and Charlie's Angels. But tonight's Bill Murray Trivia event might be the one place that Garfield screening my serve you well. Know more about Billy than anyone else and win a prize. Gee, I hope it's beer. — Kip Mooney
Cool Kids Club at Barcadia (Fort Worth)
Barcadia's free-play Tuesdays just got a little bit cooler. Now, in addition to coin-free arcade gameage, Neon Indian's Jason Faries will now serve as house DJ. That's kinda cool, I guess. — CG
