LOWEST GREENVILLE—Blind Butcher often serves weird animal parts like tripe, so their new reindeer balls don't seem all that out of place. It's actually a dessert, though: traditional English "Christmas pudding" is battered and deep-fried, then topped with brandy cream. [BB/Facebook]

OAK CLIFF—Lucia sous chefs Justin Holt and Mike Gibson (whom you may know from previous porchetta and/or ramen pop-ups) are taking over the kitchen for a one-night event on December 29. Price is $150 per person including beverage pairings, with two seatings at 6 and 8:30 p.m. Scope out the full menu — which includes a pretty awesome-sounding beet risotto with black truffle headcheese — here and call (214) 948-4998 to reserve. [Lucia/Facebook]

DOWNTOWN, ETC.—Every guest at all El Fenix locations, including the gigantic one downtown, will get free green Christmas tree-shaped sopapillas through December 24. (Come on, they would probably pair nicely with cheap happy hour margaritas and some gratis chips and salsa.) [EaterWire]
