Basketball & Beer – Bring on March Madness at The Nodding Donkey!

We can hardly contain our excitement…


Patio weather is in full swing and March Madness selections happen tomorrow! It’s time to get your posse to The Nodding Donkey to partake in two of our favorite past times: basketball and beer!




As we said earlier, March Madness selections happen tomorrow, and then games will begin this week. Take advantage of the beautiful Dallas patio weather and make plans to spend your days watching the games with us at The Nodding Donkey! With over 17 big screen TVs, parlor games, and delicious food and drinks – all in the heart of Uptown Dallas – the location just can’t be beat. Be sure to fill out your brackets and join in on the fun.




As the best sports bar in Dallas, you know we’re known for our beer! Delicious craft beers, domestics, and more – and a draft list that will make your head spin. We’ve got a few new favorites you’ll want to try this month too:


Angry Orchard Rosé

Get it here folks: experts are saying this will likely be the drink of summer! The Angry Orchard Rosé is a refreshing, fruity blend that uses 4 different varieties of apples – all straight from France of course. This drink is perfect for those who favor wine, but want something lighter for gameday. Get it on draft now at The Nodding Donkey!


Karbach Brewing Co. Weisse Versa Wheat

Do you want a Belgian white? Or are you feeling a Bavarian hefeweizen? Hey – why choose when you can have them both in a Weisee Versa Wheat from Karbach Brewing! This new beer is just what the doctor ordered, and pairs well with everything from a light salad to a burger and fries.


Revolver Blood & Honey

A staple here at The Nodding Donkey, the tried and true flavors of the Revolver Blood & Honey just never get old. Smooth and delicious, it’s everything a craft beer should be.


Join us this month at The Nodding Donkey: the only place to be for basketball and beer during March Madness!

Cocktails You Must Try This Weekend - The Nodding Donkey

The weekend is a comin’ – where do you plan to be for College Football Saturday, Texas A&M vs. Arkansas tailgating Saturday afternoon, and the Dallas Cowboys game on Sunday?


And more importantly….what do you plan to drink?! While we love a good beer or classic mule as much as the next guy, how about changing it up with a few Dallas drink specials at The Nodding Donkey? Here are a few our cocktail menu favorites that are sure to please:


·      Nodding Donkey Summer Beer: Summer has come and gone, but with the heat in Texas, Summer Beer still makes our list of cocktail must-haves. Our summer beer is made with Grey Goose l’orange premium vodka, shock top beer, and a splash of fresh lemonade. Super refreshing before a game of cornhole on the patio.


·      Purple Nurple: The Purple Nurple is one of our most popular cocktails at The Donkey and is even available in a pitcher if you’re feeling brave enough! Bacardi Arctic grape rum and G2 grape Gatorade are match made in cocktail heaven.


·      American Sniper: Give a toast to our fallen American heroes – and the American Sniper himself – with a double shot of Jack Daniels on the rocks. Cheers!


·      The Tony: Weekends down south are best enjoyed with a glass of Texas Tea. The Nodding Donkey does it right with Ketel One vodka, Captain Morgan, rum, Tanqueray gin, and Don Julio tequila all blended to perfection.


·       Uptown Skinney Spritzer: Okay ladies…this one’s for you! Smirnoff cranberry apple vodka, lime juice, and a splash of soda made for a delicious, fruity cocktail even your boyfriend will want a sip of.


·      Donkey Punch: No cocktail list at The Nodding Donkey is complete without mentioning our famous Donkey Punch! If you haven’t ever tried it – this weekend is your chance! The recipe is top secret but we can tell you it has Bacardi Dragon Berry Rum in it…. YUM!
