LOWER GREENVILLE – If you’re dying to get the Christmas celebration started two weeks early, Truck Yard is hosting the mother of all celebrations on December 12. Starting at 2 p.m., the first 50 people in the door at Truck Yard's Mother Truck'n Christmas with an unwrapped toy can claim a free Truck Yard cheese steak. Once you’ve done your good deed,  indulge in a few Herman Marshall hot toddies or a spiked chai latte. Wear your ugly sweater for a chance to win a $200 Truck Yard gift card (that will buy a lot of cheese steaks and frozen trash can punch!) and get ready to sit on "Dwarf Santa’s" lap for the perfect photo-op for next year’s holiday card.

POP-UP WIRE  – The hush-hush Dallas Supper Club is putting on some seriously awesome dinners with talented local chefs, and the recently-announced guest chef for next month’s dinner is perhaps among the most impressive. On January 14, Chef Robert Lyford of Patina Green Home & Market will be the featured chef at Dallas Supper Club’s fifth pop-up dinner.

Each of the dinner’s six courses will be paired with Peticolas Brewing Company beers, and brewmaster Michael Peticolas will be on hand to explain the pairings. Mark your calendars now – tickets go on sale Tuesday, December 15 at 4 p.m., and according to the organizers, "typically sell out within minutes of going live." The dinner’s date and time will also be announced on December 15.

BAR WIRE – This Thursday, Uptown’s Capitol Pub turns the ripe old age of eight, and they’re planning a solid celebration of nearly reaching double-digit years in business. In addition to cheap cocktails ($5 Tito’s and Deep Eddy vodka, notably) and local, seasonal brews on special, Franconia Brewing’s Dennis Wehrmenn will tap a cask of the brewery’s Bordeaux Tripel Dunkel.
