Things to do for February 24, 2011
Boozy Sno-Cones, the Oscars and Poker
The weekend is honored just to be nominated.
Presidents’ Week at Bull & Bear
Honest Abe, FDR... Taft. These guys deserve more than one day of remembrance. Bull & Bear agrees, so tonight and tomorrow, you can continue the celebration with $5 appetizers and a burger called the Lincoln Little. It is his land, after all.
Poker at the Horseshoe Casino
Going to Indiana: always a gamble. Especially this weekend and next, when around 3,000 poker enthusiasts will gather for one giant tournament of Hold’em. Your prize: half a million, and safe return from Indiana.
Spiked Sno-Cones at JBar
Snow. This winter, you’ve seen your share. So there’s only one thing left to do: spike it. Or better yet, let JBar do it at their annual SnowBall, where you’ll find sliders and red velvet cupcakes from David Burke’s and, yes, boozy sno-cones. Just like when you were a kid.
75% Off Vintage Gear at Brimfield
Someday in May, you’ll walk into the Andersonville vintage shop and find a bar upstairs. In the meantime, you can help them clear room—by picking up vintage gear like furniture, barware and clothes for a quarter of the normal price. Just remember to leave some glasses for the bar.
Oscar Party at Old Town Social
So you need somewhere to watch Hollywood’s humble little awards ceremony. Somewhere that appreciates good bubbly, popcorn carts and the subtle charm of Ms. Anne Hathaway. Somewhere like Old Town, which is handing out bottles of prosecco to groups of four, and prizes for best dressed. It’s you vs. Franco.
