Fall is in there, and that means a whole lotta football – and a whole lotta fun at The Nodding Donkey! You are welcome anytime for craft beer, gourmet bar food, and yard games, but here a few specific events we have coming up that we know you won’t want to miss:


Oct. 12: Red River Showdown Watch Party 


It’s coming yall. The Red River Showdown – the epic annual battle between the University of Texas and Oklahoma University – is approaching and we can’t wait! We love that the streets of Dallas become a sea of crimson and orange, and everywhere you turn, someone is talking about the game. If you want to get the best seats in the house, then reserve your table now at The Nodding Donkey! We’re the best sports bar in Dallas, which means you know it’s going to be a party here with drink specials, food specials, and an atmosphere that can’t be beat (except for being at the game of course.)


Oct 26 and Oct. 31: Trick or Drink – Dallas Halloween Bar Crawl


Yours truly is participating in a very fun Halloween surprise and you’re invited! Trick or Drink – the best Dallas Halloween Bar Crawl – will take place as a 2-night event. Each of the nights (Thursday and Saturday), you will check-in, get a wristband, then go and enjoy Dallas drink specials at all the top bars, including The Nodding Donkey. Be sure to dress up! With 2 nights worth of fun for one low price, it’s the Halloween party that just keeps going.


These are just a couple events we have coming up at The Nodding Donkey! Of course, join us any Saturday for college football or any Sunday or Monday for NFL football! We can’t wait to see you at The Nodding Donkey – the best sports bar in Dallas


Calling All Guys and Ghouls – Halloween Party at The Donkey!

As the D Magazine Readers’ Choice “Best Sports Bar in Dallas,” you know we know how to throw a party! And since we love Halloween and any chance to dress up, you know we wouldn’t miss this opportunity.

Join us at The Nodding Donkey Uptown this Friday night – October 31 – for the best Halloween party in Uptown! We’ll be taking it up a notch with a DJ, amazing drink specials, and a costume contest with cash prizes for the winners.

So what costume will you wear? Decisions…decisions… Take a cue from pop culture and try one of these on for size:

·         The Ice Bucket Challenge: Pop culture always finds its way into interesting and creative costumes (think Jim Halpert’s “Facebook” Costume on the Office), so why not try putting a bucket on your head and giving this one a go. Simple. Cheap. What’s not to love?!

·         An Inmate: “Orange is the New Black” gained unprecedented popularity on Netflix following women around in prison. Grab an orange jumpsuit and this one’s easy to pull off.

·         A Disney’s Frozen Character: Queen Elsa, Princess Anna, Olaf – these costumes can be found at just about any costume store on the planet. Sweet. Sexy. Scary. Add your own flare and own it.

·         British Royal: Americans are obsessed with William, Kate, the Royal Baby, George, and Royal Baby-to-be #2. Just pick one and run with it!

·         Ebola Virus: You can find a hazmat suit or get creative by turning your body into a strain of the virus. Just beware – you’re unlikely to be the only one with this idea.

Whatever costume you choose, come dressed to impress to The Nodding Donkey Uptown this Halloween! You won’t want to miss the special Halloween drink menu with brews and mixed drinks for everyone. Dancing, DJ, laughs, and fun – it'll be your best Halloween yet!
