Catch Drake Fever At Gexa Energy Pavilion.
This week is National Craft Beer Week, and there are plenty of places to partake in the celebrations locally. If you haven't checked out the Peticolas, Deep Ellum, Franconia or Rahr & Sons breweries in person, today is a fine time to change that. Plus, Drake and Snow Patrol make for decent mid-week concert offerings here in town. And there are always the weekly hump day theme parties out in Fort Worth. Oh, and Rock and Roll Tacos also takes over the kitchen at La Grange tonight, too.
Rock and Roll Tacos soft opening at LaGrange
Until tonight, eating a rock and roll taco either involved hunting down the popular food truck via social media super-sleuthing or just settling for blasting KISS greatest hits CD while rolling through the Taco Cabana drive-thru. That all changes tonight as Rock and Roll Tacos officially takes over the La Grange kitchen for good — and with an expanded menu to boot.
Drake at Gexa Energy Pavilion
Back in March, Drake pissed off quite a few Dallasites by backing out of an appearance at Zouk at the last minute, citing stomach flu as the cause. The illness, we might point out, did not prevent the rapper from performing at UTA earlier in the evening. We've got our fingers crossed that he's since started a healthy regimen of Airborne and Emergen-C.
Hump Day House Party at The Where House
The weekly Hump Day House Parties at The Where House are always a worthwhile excuse for a midweek Fort Worth drinking excursion. The themed parties also make a good excuse to recycle old Good Luck Karaoke costumes in front of a new crowd. As always, the cover is cheaper for those in costume, and, with this week's “punk rock” theme, getting the discount should be a piece of cake. You know you were going to wear an old punk t-shirt to a Phuss, Sealion and War Party bill anyway.
Snow Patrol at South Side Music Hall
After kicking around the UK for 10 years to almost no fanfare, Snow Patrol enlisted the help of mega producer Jacknife Lee for 2003's Final Straw. The album made the Glasgow band internationally famous, selling five million copies thanks to lead single “Spitting Games” which appeared everywhere from an episode of One Tree Hill to to EA Sports' MVP Baseball 2004.
Half-priced wings at Lee Harvey's
If you insist on paying full price for hot wings, you might want to avoid Lee Harvey's and Bryan Street Tavern tonight. According to our handy chart, both establishments are serving them up at half-price tonight.
