Beer, pizza and good TV is what summertime is all about. Meet a friend for happy hour at an Addison bar, or grab a slice at a pizza place in town. On Friday night, catch live music at Sherlock’s Pub, or spend the weekend reading a good book or watching a new TV show at home with your favorite popcorn and fuzzy pajamas. It’s going to be a good week, y’all! Read more tips in our guide of 7 Things To Do This Week.

3. Grab a slice at New York Pizza and Pints in Addison, now open for dine-in. Grab a delicious pie, like the classic New York Pizza with three kinds of cheese, the Manhattan Pizza with garlic oil, prosciutto, spinach and mushroom, or the Syracuse Pizza with sweet Italian susage and red peppers. You can also grab buffalo wings, garlic knots, bruschetta, East Coast sandwiches, amazing salads and to-die-for New York cheesecake, chocolate cake, cannoli, cookies and Tiramisu.
4. Another great pizza spot in Addison is Zoli’s Pizza and Pasta. This pizza parlor (also open for dine-in now), Zoli’s is a full-service, sit-down East Coast Italian-inspired restaurant, with a culinary team led by longtime NY native Lee Hunzinger. You can grab everything from round and square pies, to salads, sandwiches, pastas and “your grandma’s favorite old-school fancy Italian dinners.” We recommend the fried chicken parm sandwich, the date night brisket lasagna, and the CBR pizza with roasted chicken, bacon, pickled jalapenos, ranch swirl and everything bagel crust.
Listening to live music is soothing to the soul.
5. Rock out to the Mullet Boyz, performing live at Sherlock’s Pub in Addison from 10 p.m.-1:30 a.m. Friday night.
