So many choices for fun events this weekend and we have one perfectly terrific one that will leave you scratching your head as you belly laugh throughout the day. Shoals Sound and Service is this cheeky little bar run by many of Dallas’ elite bartenders and owned by Omar Yeefoon and Michael Martensen. You will find Yeefoon there most hours but Martensen is running a beach resort at the moment in Mexico. Such the life, right?
The event, if you can even call it that, is called Memorial Daze ’18 and the big draw will be the domino tourney with a $25 buy-in ($50 per team) where there will be amazing prizes and giveaways. This alone is reason enough to forgo the beach. (What beach?)
If that wasn’t enough you will enjoy a bake sale which benefits Foundation 45, a Deep Ellum based organization that helps artists and industry workers deal with stress, depression and suicide. A good 501(c)(3) that should get more attention. And a bake sale. By the way, they are looking for more baked goods to sell. Not those type of baked goods, mind you. Shoal’s also makes great food and one seriously kick ass sandwich, so no need to go anywhere during the uproarious fun and hijinx.
Shoals will also host an art pop-up with the Otter Illustrator Matthew Gordon Sallack. Yes, that guy. It will be cool. You need more art in your life.
High West and Hennessy will be on hand crafting incredible cocktails to keep the wit in the room at its proper level.
Make plans to attend Monday from noon to 6pm at Shoals located at 2614 Elm in Deep Ellum. Beaches be damned, this is a party!
