DOWNTOWN – If you can’t afford to sip cocktails in The Joule’s uber-classy lobby at your leisure, learn how to mix drinks from the hotel’s roving barman, known for his impromptu boozy creations. The second Sunday of every month, “cartkeeper” Ian Reilly will teach guests how to shake, stir, and garnish well-balanced craft cocktails. Also included is a three-course pairing of snacks from the kitchen. Reserve your spot for $99 by emailing [EaterWire]

CARROLLTON – Cattleack BBQ, known for its perfectly-smoked brisket and equally impressive lines at lunch, has announced plans to expand their small restaurant in Carrollton. Owners Todd and Misty David will add 100 seats to the restaurant in a new seating area that will sit directly adjacent to Cattleack’s home on Gamma Rd. The new space is expected to open in the coming months. [GuideLive]

OAK CLIFF – Enterprising baker Armida Ortega will step up Oak Cliff’s pie game with Kessler Pie Co., a new spot for whole pies or individual mini-pies served in glass jars.
