Things to do for June 23, 2011
Whiskey and Ice Cream, Models and Vodka, Dogs and Bars
The weekend will not be televised (though parts will be videotaped).
JBar’s Pop-Up Ice Cream Shop
Scotch. Bourbon. Rye. You’ve loved whiskey in all its vast splendor. Then, suddenly, JBar decides it should pop up a two-hour ice cream shop at its entrance once a week. And you meet their masterpiece: scotch-caramel ice cream. Suddenly, love blooms again.
Doggy Happy Hour at Franklin Tap
Friday, as you know, is Take Your Dog to Work Day. Okay, maybe you didn’t. But after work, you’ll decompress over a Mutt-Tini (vodka, grapefruit, grenadine), $5 shrimp cocktails and pork quesadillas. For the dog, free treats and cold water. Of course, this would be your turn to buy.
You know what feels good. Giving. Helping. Caring. Also in that whole “feeling good” category: drinking. So a food drive where you’ll receive Publican’s own beer (the Zephyr) for your canned items ranks somewhere near genius on the indulgence scale.
Pitcher Saturdays at Theory
You can easily stop at one. Not a problem. For instance, after you summon one $10 60-ounce pitcher of sangria, John Daly (a boozy Arnold Palmer) or vodka lemonade to your sidewalk perch, you’re pretty much set. As for the rest of your companions...
Sunday night is your time to get grounded for the week ahead. Naturally, you try to surround yourself with as many leggy models, South American DJs, fresh sushi rolls and glasses of champagne and/or vodka as possible. This fashion show/after-party should help you get your head together.
