Things to do for November 18, 2010

The Weekender

Wine Vending Machines, Anthony Bourdain and Ice Skating

The weekend will be with you in a moment.

Friday
A Bike Rack, Minus the Rack
RACK ‘EM

A Bike Rack, Minus the Rack

The great out of doors. You dabble. So this weekend, before you hit the singletrack, you’ll be suction-cupping your bike anywhere (literally anywhere) on your car with the new SeaSucker bike rack, which uses vacuum seal technology to vice grip your bike to your coach, sans actual bike rack. The passenger side window could be interesting.

Like Vending Machines, Only Wine
HELP YOURSELF

Like Vending Machines, Only Wine

There’s a new wine lounge opening tomorrow night. The kicker... 50 wines at your disposal via a glorious wall of self-serve wine machines. Walk up, put in a prepaid card and push a button for a sip, half glass or full bottle of wines like Plumpjack and Clos Du Val. Which gives you another idea for your cellar.

Saturday
Anthony Bourdain Tells All
BOURDAINED MINISTER

Anthony Bourdain Tells All

There’s nothing quite like a good Bourdainian rant. And this Saturday, you’ll hear them all as he recounts every last sordid, behind-the-scenes detail from decades of debauchery spent in the underbelly of the hospitality industry. In other words, you’ll never look at a walk-in cooler the same way again.

Sunday
100 Wines, 1 Glass
TASTER’S CHOICE

100 Wines, 1 Glass

You’ve put in time on the wine-tasting circuit. Worked your way through a few varietals. Had some laughs. Well, we’ve got another one for you. Except this time you’ll be table-hopping your way through over 100 wines. And beers. And champagne. Don’t worry, cabs still run on Sundays.

Monday
Ice Skating and Cocktails at Park Tavern
ICE ICE BABY

Ice Skating and Cocktails at Park Tavern

You may have heard rumblings of an icy diversion headed your way in the very near future. And we’re happy to report they’re true. Starting Monday at Park Tavern, you’ll be tearing up the ice at the new rink while sipping on one of 10 new cocktails like Sex on the Ice with Tuaca, whiskey and OJ. Sounds about right.
