This week, we’ve found some handsome shoes from one of Britain’s premier cobblers, Grenson—and you can’t get them anywhere but Perks. Plus, we’ve handpicked our favorite stock of ties and accoutrements (like pocket squares) from Los Angeles’s Gentry. The dagger-shaped tie bar means business.
Things to do for June 02, 2011
Oysters, Giant Martinis and Anchorman
The weekend is positioning itself for 2012.
Your Next Martini—All 48 Ounces of It
The problem with martinis is they’re so... individual. Not anymore, as Dirty Martini debuts the city’s largest cocktails—any of their specialty drinks are now available in a 48-ounce, group-friendly format. It’s the Big Gulp of martinis.
Twenty Food Trucks at a Beer Garden
Your days of chasing food trucks are over. At least on Fridays, when the Das Bullpen beer garden assembles 20 of them in a veritable shooting gallery of empanadas, BBQ and grilled cheese. We suggest you get strategic.
Making Like a Southern Senator
With temperatures where they are, you should certainly be wearing seersucker. Especially if you’re riding a bike. For the second year, the folks behind the fall Tweed Ride are asking you to don your seer for this ride and vintage lawn party. Think croquet, badminton... and gin.
Oysters and Rare Beer at ChurchKey
So you didn’t get tickets to the SAVOR beer fest this weekend. But there’s still hope. And it comes in the form of a three-hour extravaganza of West Coast oysters and 30 kegs from Rogue Ales, including a couple making their worldwide debut. You should be done just in time for happy hour.
Apatow Film Fest at EatBar
The problem with taking in Apatow films at the theater: they frown on you bringing cocktails. No more, as Arlington’s temple of sliders and wine flights gets things started with Step Brothers this weekend, followed by The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up and Anchorman. Yes, the bar smells of rich mahogany.
