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 12, 2011
Swim Trunks, Egg Burgers and Zombies
The weekend is out of the office with limited access to voicemail.
Summer Sale at Lost Boys
Your summer has a few strong weeks in it yet, so take advantage as Lost Boys knocks 20%-plus off their whole warm-weather stock. Think swim trunks from Steven Alan, shirts from Rogan and Gilded Age, and jackets and pants from Theory. Which beats just a hypothesis of pants.
A Breakfast Burger at BGR
On your weekends, breakfast bleeds right into dinner. So you’ll want to know about this here burger, topped with the equivalent of a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich. It’s called the Triple D, because, you know, it’s top-heavy.
English Soccer Kicks Off at Lucky Bar
Not that you need an excuse to go to a bar at 9:30am, but Lucky Bar will give you one nonetheless: opening day of the English Premier League season. They’ll have a half-dozen games on TV in the morning, and a classic English breakfast. Yes, with beans.
Hill Country Launches Delivery Service
So the neighbors (and the fire department) have finally objected to the smoker you constructed in your shower. Not to worry: Penn Quarter’s new Texas roadhouse now delivers all manner of meats to your doorstep. The bourbon’s on you this time.
Sign Up for the Zombie Apocalypse
Surviving Alexandria usually means dodging tourists and avoiding old women driving Jaguars. This time, it involves zombies. You and 450 competitors will attempt to cross Alexandria without being tagged by the undead, lest you turn from hunted to hunter. In your case, zombies carry flasks.
