If you'd like to tip your hat to the English for taking that whole religious-oppression thing so seriously, head out to the British-inspired Ten Bells Tavern (232 W. 7th St.) in the Bishop Arts District. Ten Bells Tavern will pour its first pint of Peticolas' Royal Scandal at 6 p.m.

Then you can hop across the street to play a little pool or watch football highlights at The Oak Cliff Social Club (238 W. Davis St.). Who knows what shenanigans they'll be up to, but the bar opens at 8 p.m.

A close runner-up in the Best of in the general dark bar categories, The Libertine (2101 Greenville Ave), will surely be available to help you take that edge off on Thursday evening. Doors open at 7 p.m.
