Get Pinned Down. Or Maybe Just Pop Up.
We have a saying here around the Central Track HQ that Thursdays are the new Fridays — mostly because, since our launch, it has been one of the most consistently busy nights of the week. Tonight, all eyes will be on The Pin Show, where this year's emerging fashion trends will be on display. For those who are more into jorts and v-necks than haute couture, there's a beer and cheese pairing — a.k.a. the top of most males' food pyramid — at Scardello. And, well, since it is a Thursday, there's plenty else to do, too.
The Pin Show at Fairmont Hotel Regency Ballroom
As executive producer Julie McCullough told us earlier this week, The Pin Show is back. This year, the event featuring 38 Dallas-area top-end fashion designers moves to the Fairmont Hotel.
Scrote at Dada
The one consistent thing about Scrote's music are the world-class players he gets to back him up. Whichever genre he decides to tinker with at the moment, musicians who have played with everyone from Bowie to Burt Bacharach always help him to turn out good art.
The Naptime Shake and Glen Farris at The Common Table
The Wilco-influenced roots rock of Noah Bailey's Naptime Shake is a great mood setter for The Common Table's reverse happy hour. Even better? There's no cover to get in.
Beer and Cheese Pairing at Scardello
Beer: Good. Cheese: Good. The two properly paired: Exquisite. Learn what works with a beer and cheese pairing tonight at Scardello. Some 30 combinations of artisan cheeses and beer will be offered. Reservations required.
Clothes Encounters Pop-Up Shop
From pie shops to secret bars, Dallas seems to have a fascination with the pop-up shop of late. It makes sense: Dallas folk like feeling like they've got the one up on their peers, having the drop on the latest low-key happening before anyone else. Makes us feel important. Three times a year, this chic clothing shop opens at 4444 Abbott Avenue for three days at a time, so there's no time to procrastinate.
Black in the Box at Zubar
A funk-soul-disco thrown by DJ's Red Eye and Wanz Dover, two of the city's finest.
