Imagine a wine tasting in Napa Valley. The crowds. The cabernets. Comparing notes with a ringer for Virginia Madsen. But you don’t have time for all that, so we’re getting you six mini-bottles of top-tier vino to try. And giving you $30 towards a bottle of your favorite. Virginia approves.
Things to do for April 28, 2011
Jazz, Sushi and Flapper Girls
The weekend is projected to go in the first round.
Live Jazz and Thai Food on a Patio
Patio season: in full bloom. And conveniently, so is the new Thai kitchen, Malai, which is hosting live jazz on its patio every Thursday. You’ll drink Ginger Bird Margaritas (Thai chilies are involved) and eat crispy wings. Nothing says jazz like Thai food.
Drinking with the Queen at 6am
This week’s excuse to ditch the office on Friday: the royal wedding. Your play: from 5:30am to noon, the Londoner is hosting a watch party with English tea pastries, a traditional English fry-up and Royal Wedding Punch. Oh, and don’t forget to send your gift.
Five Sixty’s New Tasting Menu
Your favorite rotating skyline restaurant is breaking out its new tasting menu—think sushi and dim sum paired with a flight of sake or a glass of sparkling wine. A 360-degree view always goes better with dim sum.
Horse Racing and a Crawfish Boil
The Kentucky Derby’s just eight days away, so you need to warm up. So (1) dust off your straw boater and (2) head to Lone Star Park this Saturday for horse races, 500 pounds of crawfish and the Zydeco Stingrays. We’re pretty sure that’s a band.
Sfuzzi, Now a Speakeasy
For its one-year anniversary, Sfuzzi is hosting a Roaring ’20s party, including Prohibition-inspired cocktails, flapper girls and a DJ. And you thought they didn’t have DJs back then.
