Things to do for June 22, 2011
Alligators, Burlesque and Water Balloons
The weekend has nothing to say without a lawyer present.
Backyard Now Open at Red Palace
You’ve been here plenty for rock shows and the occasional burlesque sideshow. Now, they’ve opened a wood-enclosed back patio, the better to relax over a post-work can of beer. We eagerly await alfresco burlesque.
Frog and Alligator for Happy Hour
Start this weekend by delving into a different culture. One where you don’t understand the language. Yes, bayou country. The new 18th Street Louisiana hideaway is serving up swamp favorites like Blackened Frog Legs and Gator and Crawfish Sliders. Wear your best overalls.
A Taco Stand at a Five-Star Brunch
Omelets, oysters, cured ham. It’s all part of a balanced brunch extravaganza. But to go really next-level, you need the unexpected. Like a street-inspired taco stand with short rib mole, grilled shrimp and smoked pork shoulder. We hear you can tip the piano player in tacos.
A Water-Soaked Rumble in Georgetown
Recovered from a springtime flood, the Georgetown waterfront is celebrating with... more water. Specifically, a water balloon toss followed by an all-out water balloon battle and soundtracked by a steel-drum band. Don’t forget your slicker.
Rogue States Reopens as Black & Orange
You remember Rogue States: the Dupont spot where you could get a half-pound burger at 4am until they were unceremoniously shut down due to fumes seeping into the upstairs law firm. Well, they’re finally back, grilling burgers with a new name. And a new ventilation system.
