Special Thanksgiving Hours at The Nodding Donkey

Thanksgiving Week is upon us – how are you spending the holiday?

After the turkey’s been eaten and you’ve had all the small talk you can handle with crazy Aunt Betty, head over to The Nodding Donkey for FOOTBALL and fun!


Special Thanksgiving Hours

The Nodding Donkey will open at 3:30pm on Thanksgiving Day, giving you and our staff plenty of time to spend with those you love. We’ll be open 3:30pm-Close, so there will be plenty of time to watch the biggest Thanksgiving Day games and catch up with friends old and new.


Watch Thanksgiving Day Football with Us!

The best sports bar in Dallas is the place to catch all your favorite Thanksgiving Day matchups. Here are a few of our favorites on the schedule:

·      3:30pm: Redskins vs. Cowboys – now you know why we’re opening at 3:30! Wouldn’t want you to miss any of the action on our 17+ big screen TVs because for once the Cowboys are favored big time and it should be a fun game to watch.

·      6:30pm: Texas A&M vs. LSU – Both teams have suffered huge wins and losses this season, but who will take the Turkey Day victory?



Food & Drink Specials!

And while watching the game, don’t forget about The Donkey’s amazing food and drink specials! Try some of our delicious small bites and pair them with draft beer, a cocktail, sipping whiskey, wine, and more. Our bar is fully stocked with just about anything you could have a hankering for. The Nodding Donkey prides itself on keeping local, craft beer on tap, and we rotate our favorites on a regular basis. Just ask the bartender what’s on tap, and you’re sure to find something to please.


Happy Thanksgiving from your friends at The Nodding Donkey!

Basketball is on at The Nodding Donkey!

The SuperBowl last Sunday marked the official end to football season, and frankly, that’s okay with us.

Sure, the SuperBowl game ended up being pretty exciting, but we can’t help but wonder how much more awesome it could have been if the Dallas Cowboys hadn’t gotten snubbed from their run at the championship! (No, we aren’t bitter or anything!)

Anyway, we’re happy to put this season behind us and move on to focus on basketball season! Maybe next year – right Cowboys fans?!

Basketball! Dallas Mavericks. SMU Mustangs. Kansas Jayhawks. And more. They are all live and in primetime on one of our 17 big screen TVs – 3 of which are 70” screens! With giant screens everywhere, there’s not a bad seat in the house for watching your favorite team duke it out for victory.
