The fact that Troy Aikman is a good-looking man has not escaped our collective journalistic notice. As far as I can tell, Nancy’s the only person brave enough around here to come forward with a dissenting opinion.
So. Aikman fans, Aikman stalkers, and legitimate runners with an extra $250 to spare, it’s your lucky day.Â Instead of lurking at the Highland Park Village Mi Cocina, take a nice jog around Katy Trail for a good cause. Aikman is once again the honorary chair of the Friends of Katy Trail‘s Annual Support Campaign, and he’s fulfilling those duties by leading a one mile fun run. If you donate $250 (or more) to the trail, you can join in. It kicks off at the American Airlines Center and ends up at the Katy Trail Ice House, where complimentary booze awaits. Register online until 3 p.m., but if you get inspired later, you can also register at the event before the start. And look, I know it’s a lot of money to splash out mid-week. But if you love running on the trail and you’d like to help keep it clean, it’ll be worth it.
In addition to the Meddlesome Moth’s weekly Wednesday rare beer tapping (Real Ale Brewing Co.’sÂ Barrel Aged Empire), they’re hosting a five-course luau-inspired dinner out on their patio. No flame throwers, but it’s still shaping up to be a really nice night to sacrifice an entire suckling pig, meet the founder of Maui Brewing Co., and pour out three Hawaiian beers that have never been tasted in Texas. There are just a few seats left, so if this sounds like something you can get behind, call over now.
I told you yesterday that today’s your chance to get into the State Fair for cheap. Three cans of food and two dollars. Do I really have to force you to get out there? For more to do tonight, go here.
