Things to do for July 28, 2011
Beer Cocktails, Mechanical Bulls and Bogart
The weekend comes together in the spirit of compromise.
Café Saint-Ex’s New Pop-Up Slider Bar
Your bar giveth; your bar taketh away. In this case, they’ve taken away the kitchen for four weeks (renovations), but they’ve given a pop-up slider bar, serving flights of BBQ sandwiches along with a new array of beer cocktails. The bar closing down would be unforgivable.
The Debut of a Sidewalk Gelato Cart
It happens a lot: you’re walking down a downtown sidewalk thinking, “There should be a gelato cart... right... here.” Someone was listening, as the Italian eatery Casa Nonna is now serving up flavors like Meyer Lemon, Stracciatella and Ricotta and Fig every day. You’ll have to keep wishing for a beer cart.
El Centro’s Bottomless Tequila Brunch
Good news: the new Mexican taqueria is serving up unlimited brunch fare like tamales with eggs and Mexican chocolate waffles. Better news: they’re sweetening the deal with bottomless tequila cocktails. It’s like they don’t want you to get anything done this weekend.
Mechanical Bull + Whiskey = ...
Time once again to shine your boots and polish your belt buckle, because the Wyoming State Society is taking over Eastern Market. Think beer, a mechanical bull and whiskey. Probably in that exact order.
Watching Classic Movies at Redline
Soon, you’ll be heading to sports bars for 10-hour NFL marathons. Until then, you can just catch Bogey and Bergman. The second-floor Penn Quarter hideaway is screening classic films every Monday on its 40-plus screens, and they’re getting started with Casablanca. They may even play it again.
