Every Man of the World* has a Heineken BeerTender®. After all, it lets you have the premium experience of pouring fresh Heineken draught beer right at home. It's probably the greatest gift in the world. Secretly, you'd love to buy one for yourself, but you can't. It's the holidays after all — buying yourself a gift looks selfish.

Until now. Introducing BeerFriender, a first of its kind Facebook application that matches you up with a like-minded stranger who's also in the market for a BeerTender®. Instead of buying BeerTenders for yourselves, the app makes it look like you bought them for each other. It’s going to change gift-giving as we know it.

Now that you are set with your BeerTender®, it’s obviously time to throw the perfect holiday party. Check out our list of Dallas' best to-go-friendly food spots to accompany your home-poured draught.

1.) Bolsa: Dallas' original locally sourced, organic-minded restaurant that combines comfort food and class.

2.) Smoke Restaurant: Serving barbecue all dressed up in a tux, Smoke's redefining what it means to eat one of the world's oldest dishes.
