This week, Perks is bringing you half off your next gourmet burger delivery from BuiltBurger, the Seattle-based innovators of all things ground beef. (Mind-blowing flavors like Sriracha and Gruyère are just the beginning...) Plus: choose from three dopp kits from eShave, designed exclusively for UD readers, featuring their all-natural products and handmade razors, for 40% off. Your five o’clock shadow has been warned.
Things to do for August 19, 2010
Jazz, Don Draper and Introducing the Cotton Candy Martini
The weekend already has a tab going.
Behold: The Cotton Candy Martini
You love martinis. You love cotton candy. So we figured you’d like to meet their offspring. Introducing the Cotton Candy Martini, a loving tribute to the state fair, made by taking a martini glass, putting in some cotton candy and then soaking it in a secret combination of booze. Next up: the corn dog Jäger bomb.
40% Off at Pockets
It’s a classic late-summer sartorial dilemma: buy more summer gear or stock up on clothing for the fall? But Saturday you won’t have to choose. Pockets is taking 40% off much of their summerwear (lightweight pants, short-sleeve shirts), plus the more autumnal appropriate Zegna suits and Hamilton button-downs.
Jazz and Many Mimosas at Cretia’s
Bottomless mimosas at brunch are good and fun. But you’ve always felt they could use a little more trumpet. Your friends at Cretia’s are bringing in a jazz band to go along with your $10 bottomless mimosas and $3 Bloody Marys this Sunday. Don’t leave without trying the Momma’s Cheddar Chives Biscuits and Country Gravy.
The Cold War is long over, and as it turns out, there are actually a lot of cool Russians (Kournikova, that dude who bought the Nets). So we were excited to hear that the Dallas Opera will be doing their first Russian opera next year. And even more excited to hear they’ll be celebrating with a vodka party featuring Texan and Russian sopranos. This is not a dream.
<i>Mad Men</i> Showing at the Angelika
Attention, fans of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce: the Angelika is showing Mad Men on their big screen for free on Sunday. And to enhance your cigarette watching, they’ll be serving dirty martinis and scotch on the rocks (apparently they raided Roger Sterling’s liquor cart). We recommend drinking every time Don Draper pays for sex.
