Hot, hard and horizontal, Dallas can be a city without pity. But not one without its fun. When you head down to catch the Dallas-Miami game at Cowboys Stadium on Thanksgiving, you’ll have the rest of the weekend to play your own games. Start your Saturday night here.

Ring in happy hour on a patio with an outstanding view of the skyline at the Cedars Social, south of downtown. Fedora-topped alchemists deliver well-priced classics from a menu that’s part history lecture, part manifesto.

Time for some big Texas beef. Uptown mainstay Nick & Sam’s serves a beautifully charred 10-ounce filet. Even steak purists should try the signature savory sauce.

10:30 P.M. Marquee Grill

Marquee Grill & Bar, in the ritzy Park Cities neighborhood, serves an outstanding old-school manhattan. Slip one in before you hit…

Teddy’s Room, named for our 26th president, Theodore Roosevelt. The rope line starts to thicken before midnight. This happening second-floor lounge has historical kitsch burlesque decor. The callow cast members of Bravo’s Most Eligible Dallas have been known to manufacture their drama here.

1:45 A.M. Hit Oak Lawn favorite Snookie’s Bar & Grill for a late-night alcohol sop of chicken friend steak with gravy and bottomless iced tea. The people-watching will be flamboyant, so to speak.

3:15 A.M. Jaguars

Cap the night off at Jaguars, a nudie joint where dancers slip their duds back on after hours, when the place turns into a dance club. DJ collective 12inchPimps provides the thump for off-duty Lone Star strippers, bouncers, bartenders and your basic army of night freaks.
