The weekend always hits driver off the tee.

Thursday

UD - Your Ties from the 1950s Are Here
OLD SCHOOL

Your Ties from the 1950s Are Here

Anybody can wear a great tie. Not everyone can wear one from the Eisenhower administration. The gents at Hugh & Crye have been sourcing some cool lapel pins and ties from the 1950s from local collectors—skinny wool ties, wider ties emblazoned with golf patterns. Yeah, apparently there are 1950s tie collectors.

UD - Oyster Deals, Extended Hours at Hank’s
CHASING OYSTERS

Oyster Deals, Extended Hours at Hank’s

Hank’s is solving problems. Problems like finding a good deal on oysters as the clock nears midnight. Its giant cocktail bar is now open until midnight on weeknights and 1am on weekends. Show up from 10pm to midnight and get 50% off the raw bar, shrimp and ceviche. Then start thinking about breakfast.

Friday

UD - José Andrés Has a New Tequila Bar
BUTTERFLY EFFECT

José Andrés Has a New Tequila Bar

If you made use of the cheap-theater-tickets place next to Oyamel, sorry. It’s gone. In its stead: Oyamel’s new tequila-focused bar, replete with butterflies, partitioned booths and a mural of a local model. Pop in next week for afternoon tastings as their annual tequila and mezcal festival gets under way. Feliz tequila.

UD - Bourbon Day in a Secret Bar
TAKE FLIGHT

Bourbon Day in a Secret Bar

The first thing to know about Friday: it’s National Bourbon Day. The second thing to know: Jack Rose is opening their private basement bar for the night and pouring rare vintage bourbon flights from Evan Williams and Elijah Craig, some dating back to 1990. The golden age of bourbon.

Sunday

UD - Going Whole Hog at Steve Case’s Winery
EARLY BIRDS

Going Whole Hog at Steve Case’s Winery

Sunday would be a nice time to check out Steve Case’s winery with Dad. They’re barbecuing whole hogs on the great lawn and pouring you plenty of wine and cider. Get there by 1:30pm, so you and Dad can take on all comers in the cornhole tournament. Nobody tosses a beanbag like your old man.
