DJ Souljah is known for DJing tons of events in Dallas.
These days, each weekend offers a unique challenge: how to make it feel new and exciting when they’re all predominantly spent at home? Fortunately, virtual and socially distanced events are still aplenty, so we’ve rounded up a few to round out your weekend.
This Saturday, May 9, Nosh Bistro is hosting a dine-in and virtual wine dinner at 6 pm. Chef Ryan Carbery will join Refined Hospitality Concept’s CEO Robert Hall, a noted wine expert, to host the dinner. Guests can dine-in and experience the wine dinner firsthand for $83 per person, or participate virtually on Facebook after purchasing the three-course meal kit and wines with curbside pickup. At-home meals are $38 per couple with additional charges for wine and a pre-dinner Diplomatico Mojito. Order in advance here.
Texas Ale Project is hosting a Zoom Bingo event this Friday, May 8 at 8 pm. To pick up your bingo card, just drive through the beer-to-go drive-thru (no purchase required, but why not grab some Fire Ant Funerals or 50 Ft Jackrabbits to drink while playing?). Then all you have to do is sign into Zoom through this link.
Most indoor Texas movie theaters haven’t made the move to open yet, but there are still drive-in theaters (which are really having their moment) in North Texas. Fort Worth’s Coyote Drive-In Theater is playing several films this weekend. Catch a screening of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Sonic the Hedgehog, Trolls Word Tour, or The Invisible Man from the safety of your car.
On Thursday, DJ Souljah is hosting his online House Party through Twitch at 11:11 pm. Have your own dance event by going to twitch.tv/iamdjsouljah.
And on Friday at 8 pm, DJ Blake Ward is streaming another set, Disco, TX Livestream! Show Me Your Pets, through Twitch.
Also, of course, it’s Mother’s Day this weekend. If you’re not set on being in a dining room just yet, there are several local restaurants offering meals to-go.
