The Rustic Christmas

The anticipation leading up to Christmas morning can be downright unbearable. But by Christmas afternoon, the kids are wired, the house is a wreck and the in-laws are driving you crazy…

Wouldn’t it be nice to escape?

The Rustic feels your pain. That’s why on Friday, Dec. 25, Uptown’s hottest outdoor concert venue will be open from 6 p.m. until midnight, winding down the holiday with homemade tamales paired with a featured tequila and a heaping helping of “aahhhhh.”

A limited menu featuring three tamale varieties – pork, chicken and vegetarian – accompanied by Salsa Chile de Arbol, will satisfy your hunger. Your thirst will be quenched by the “Rustic Rita,” made with Dulce Vida Organic Tequila, agave nectar and fresh-squeezed lime juice.

Or, help “Drink the Tree” by choosing a ZiegenBock Amber from The Rustic’s original beer bottle Christmas tree, for just $3.

“Nobody loves Christmas more than I do; but by the end of the day, I’ve had my fill of extended family and over-stimulated kids, and I’m ready to get away,” said Kyle Noonan, co-owner of FreeRange Concepts, creator of The Rustic. “We’re providing an oasis at The Rustic to escape, relax and enjoy some delicious tamales and a cold drink or two. Tacky Christmas sweaters are optional.”

Pork, chicken and vegetarian tamales will also be available for purchase by the dozen from Monday, Dec. 21, through Saturday,Dec. 26, at The Rustic. ($30 per dozen includes 6 oz. of Salsa Chile de Arbol. No mixing within each dozen.)

What: Tamales & Tequila – Let’s Drink the Tree!

Where: The Rustic, 3656 Howell St., Dallas

With its casual atmosphere, live musical acts and unique, full-service dining experience featuring farm-fresh, homestyle dishes and a Texas-sized selection of wines, spirits and 40 beers on tap, The Rustic has carved a distinctive niche among Dallas restaurants. The concept is the brainchild of Noonan, Sepkowitz and Texas country artist Pat Green, whose love of the outdoors and live music helped bring The Rustic to life. The result is a fun and relaxing concert and dining experience from a phenomenal patio, all under the big Texas sky.
