We thought you needed a change of scenery... so we booked you a room and dinner for two at a Michelin-starred restaurant in Napa Valley. (Hope you don’t mind.) Then we saved you a seat for an epic feast in Manhattan, at Le Cirque’s LES pop-up restaurant. Get packing.
Things to do for August 11, 2011
Tequila Snow Cones, Cee Lo and Geishas
The weekend wants to see you sweat.
Tequila Snow Cones at Prairie Fire
You already have lots of ways to kick off your weekend, so let us simply say this: a snow cone happy hour. Prairie Fire will offer flavors like tequila-raspberry and gin-and-honey plus a variety of delicious gooey panini. Always begin the weekend on a high note.
You and Cee Lo have been hanging out a lot this week. (You couldn’t shake him after you guys took in the Deadmau5 set together at Lolla.) So here he is again, headlining the annual fashion-and-music extravaganza known as Glamorama. Just don’t snub him at the after-party.
You’ve done Taste. You’ve done Lolla. You have the elote guy’s cell phone number. You’re no stranger to street fare. This all-star event brings together the talents of the likes of noodle master Takashi Yagihashi and Uptown Pie Truck, along with art and live music. Yes, that’s right: pie truck.
A Refined Night of Geishas and Sake
Sake bombs and lamb chops. No, not a traditional pairing. But when everything on the menu and bar is 15% off at this quirky and modern Japanese pub, you may find yourself experimenting. Consider the geisha servers your lab assistants.
A Lobster Broil at a Steakhouse
Surf and turf is a steakhouse classic. But sometimes... the surf goes solo. This patio lobster broil serves you a pound of lobster, along with corn, baby red potatoes, mussels, clams, shrimp and chorizo sausage in garlic butter sauce. Quite the supporting cast.
