It’s Thursday afternoon. Which means that in a few short hours it will be Thursday night. Or as you like to call it... the weekend. Start it at the Sushi Social Party at Genki for live music, drink specials and gratis sushi from 7 to 9pm. In other words, a good start.
Things to do for September 16, 2010
Champagne Sabering, Bottomless Mimosas and Sushi
The weekend has a backstage pass.
Andy Warhol. The Stones. Johnny Cash. All have one thing in common: peanut allergies. Also, they were all photographed by Norman Seeff. And tonight, you will journey with him through 35 years of photography, filmmaking and backstage debauchery. He might even tell you where Keith hid the fountain of youth.
World Records and Champagne Sabering
You’re always game for witnessing a Guinness World Record attempt. Especially when swords are involved. Tomorrow night, St. Regis wine director Harry Constantinescu will attempt to saber 22 bottles of bubbly in 60 seconds, and you will be there. You wouldn’t let 22 bottles of champagne go to waste.
Not to beat a dead horse, but in case you forgot, today is Mexican Independence Day. And naturally, that calls for tequila. So this Saturday, pay your belated respects by heading to Prickly Pear’s Margarita Fest for $3 margs, $2 beers, a DJ and live salsa dancing...which is where the tequila comes in.
Bottomless Mimosas at The Shed
By the time Sunday rolls around, you will have fought valiantly. So a recharge in the form of brunch may be in order, and The Shed at Glenwood is happy to help... and so are their $9 bottomless mimosas. Think of it as a gift from the Sunday gods.
