8.) Apparently, a “glizzy” is a hot dog, and Martin House Brewing Co. (220 S Sylvania Av, Ste 209, 817-222-0177) is throwing a party in its honor. Glizzy Fest, from noon to 5pm on Sat, Jul 16, will feature four food trucks, a hot dog-eating contest, wiener dogs (and a cooling pool just for doggos), craft vendors, and a special seltzer launch. There will also be live music by Texan Fool, a John Cougar Mellencamp cover band, and weird beer. “We’re tapping up a special batch of Best Maid Pickle Mustard Beer, and we’re releasing a hot dog water seltzer called Bun Length.” There will be around 25 beers on tap. The event is free to attend, but if you’re drinking, then the $15 wristband is the way to go. It covers you on a souvenir “suckin’ on chili dogs” glass and four pours of beer or seltzers.
