By Elizabeth Lowe & Natalie Blankenship,

This weekend is for the guys with activities and specials ranging from reggae rock to ultimate enchiladas to of course, the NFL as we countdown to the Super Bowl. But being in Dallas, this is definitely an upgraded version of the typical boys weekend, making it great for gals too.

Get a little surf culture with Badfish at the House of Blues
When: Saturday, Jan. 29
Time: doors at 7 p.m., show at 8 p.m.
Price: $20 general admission or the 4-pack price of $15 a piece
What: Badfish is a Sublime tribute band; it’s not ska, but it’s definitely surfer-cool. Perfect for a totally chill, sunny Saturday night out…even if it’s below 40 and raining.

Go pro minus the price at NFL Experience
When: all weekend
Times: Fri. 3-10 p.m., Sat. 10 a.m.-10 p.m., Sun. 11 a.m.-8 p.m.
Price: not the going rate of upwards $1,000 for Cowboy Stadium
What: It’s not a January weekend in Texas without a little NFL. The Super Bowl brings this mega-fan attraction to the Dallas Convention Center which includes autograph sessions, the Vince Lambardi Trophy, and of course some games and drills.

Coal Vines to Update Your Weekend Pizza
Where: Uptown on Cedar Springs Road
What: Delicious wood-fired pizzas and other Italian specialties
Ditch that Saturday evening Domino’s, get up off the couch and head to Coal Vines for great food and awesome atmosphere as well. Owned by the same people of Nick & Sam’s, you’re sure to be pleased.

BEE: Best Enchiladas Ever Opens In Oak Cliff
What: made to order enchiladas, burritos, tacos and more, this “enchiladeria” is compared to a cross between a Chipotle and a Which Wich. It’s fast and it’s fresh, and it’s owned by Monica of Monica’s Aca y Alla.
Why: it’s brand new–why not try the newest tex mex in town? Then maybe you can claim that you discovered the restaurant when all of your friends start becoming regulars.
