For far too long, Sunday has reigned supreme for relaxation. It’s got it all: sleeping late, brunch, day drinking.
But why stop the party just because you’ve gotta go back to work?
Introducing Monday Funday. After a long day at the office, simply invoke the “it’s 5 o’clock somewhere” rule and head to the five best places for Monday drinking.
5. Pint Night at Flying Saucer
Feel the stress of the work-week grind melt away with this low-key and budget friendly outing. Pints are just $3 all night and there are more than 80 draughts to choose from. At these prices, the next round (and the one after that) can be on you.
14999 Montfort Dr., Addison (972-991-7093)
4. Drinking Al Fresco at The Rustic
Enjoy a night under the stars at one of Uptown’s most popular new venues packed with eligible bachelorettes. Every Monday is Brew Night, so you can meet and greet the folks from Revolver Brewery tonight and enjoy $4 schooners from 4:45-11:55p.
3656 Howell St., Uptown (214-530-0796)
3. Vinyl Tap at Double Wide
Clean out your closet and round up those dusty tapes, records, and CDs. During this music-themed swap, you can trade out old school jams for new wave treasures. DJ Mr. Rid provides music to barter to while the bar delivers $2 domestics and wells. Trading begins at 10p.
3510 Commerce St., Deep Ellum (214-887-6510)
2. Jazz Night at The Amsterdam
The party can’t end if the music never stops, right? The bands start around 10p., but get there early if you want a table. Work worries fade quickly with a nice glass of George Dickel Tennessee Whiskey, one of The Amsterdam’s most popular labels.
831 Exposition Ave., Fair Park (214-827-3433)
1. Pappy's Boilermaker at Mansion Bar
Add some swagger to Tuesday’s water cooler conversation with your tales of fireside escapades at the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek (pictured). This $30 signature cocktail serves up Van Winkle Special Reserve (12 years old) and a Pabst Blue Ribbon to create what is easily the best boilermaker in town.
2821 Turtle Creek Blvd., Uptown (214-559-2100)
