Restaurants throughout the neighborhood are gearing up for New Year’s, if you’re scrambling for last-minute plans. Preston Hollow Village’s Beer Blatt & Table will offer a full-service brunch on New Year’s Day, and Blue Sushi Sake Grill will have a special menu and extended happy hour. Princi Italia and Dish also are contenders for those of us planning to stay in Preston Hollow.

Listen to “The Story of Ferdinand,” a tale about a bull who would rather smell flowers than fight in Madrid, at Barnes and Noble. The story time is scheduled Saturday, Dec. 30, at 11 a.m.

Even though Christmas is over, The Trains at NorthPark will be displayed until Jan. 7.  The elaborate train exhibit costs $7 for adults and $4 for children and seniors.
