Scientists have shown that rough nights lead to rougher mornings-after. Fortunately, the scientists at Nickel have invented Morning After Rescue Gel—a hangover-curing face cream infused with caffeine, citrus and soy protein to smooth any lingering roughness. Now, our scientists at Perks are bringing it to you for 40% off. Let’s hear it for science.
Things to do for October 14, 2010
Bison Burgers, Humphrey Bogart and Stogies
The weekend is looking at you, kid.
A Burger (and Rum) Lover’s Dream
Burgers and cocktails. Simple and amazing. But let’s complicate things a bit. Tomorrow night on the House rooftop, you’ll have the option of everything from bison burgers to foie gras burgers (as many as you want), and an open bar where mixologists will pour glasses of rum onto an ice cube they chip to perfection in front of you. You hate imperfect ice cubes.
You, Casablanca and 5,000 Friends
Home theaters: fine. But sometimes you just want to watch one of history’s greatest films on a humongous outdoor screen with a few thousand acquaintances. And because staring at Ingrid Bergman makes a man hungry, you can buy chicken curry sandwiches and cocktails. Just don’t get any whiskey on your white tux jacket.
Watching the Cowboys in a Home-y Bar
In case you thought of throwing a house party for this Sunday’s crucial Cowboys game but then thought better of it, consider moving things to the Alcove. They’ll have $2 domestic bottles, $3 Sierra Nevada drafts, comfy sofas that make you feel like you’re at your buddy’s place—and they’ll let you order food from anywhere that’ll deliver. Now it’s just up to you, Romo...
Post-Dinner Cocktails and Jazz
No offense to your friends’ karaoke skills, but good live music can be hard to find. So you’ll be happy to know that your favorite restaurant with a bocce ball court, Park, is now hosting live jazz every Wednesday in their back lounge, Bar Celine. The Pork Schnitzel goes great with Coltrane...
Big Tobacco, Meet Big Chocolate
Good news on the tobacco-infused chocolate front: next week, Havana Social Club is bringing in a master chocolatier from Chocolate Secret to offer you some mind-blowing candies like chocolates injected with tobacco leaves. You’ll probably want to pair these with Havana’s private-label cigars and some wine. And, obviously, an over-the-top Tony Montana accent.
