OAK CLIFF/MCKINNEY—May 4th is celebrated by many a nerd 'round the world as Star Wars Day (as in, "May the Fourth be with you") and as such, Emporium Pies will be offering its Java the Hutt pie on Monday. Stop in for a slice or better yet, call to pre-order a whole one: It's got crunchy salted toffee and espresso cream in a buttery pastry crust. [EP/Facebook]

OAK CLIFF—What's better than a margarita? A margarita with a popsicle shoved in it, obviously. Cabrito-slinging mariachi band haven El Ranchito has a new Paleterita that's exactly that — a frozen margarita or strawberry daiquiri with a sangria popsicle dunked in it for a double-dose of frozen boozy goodness.

FORT WORTH—Swiss Pastry Shop's latest burger creation is the cleverly named Umami Tsunami: a a pork and shrimp burger with romaine, kimchi, and yuzu-Sriracha mayo. Get it today and Saturday for 12 bucks. [SPS/Facebook]
