This week we’re spiking your next PB&J with some bourbon (or tequila, or champagne), courtesy of the artisanal jam makers/boozehounds at the Jam Stand. And we took the liberty of booking you a posh room and dinner for two at a Michelin-starred restaurant in Napa Valley. We know you too well.
Things to do for August 18, 2011
Cheerleaders, Mussels and Sasha Grey
The weekend is past sultry and into sweltry.
You’ve got a thing for Renaissance women. And multitalented model/actress/star of adult films/DJ Sasha Grey fits the bill. Tomorrow she’ll be holding court at Mokai, making sure the room gets hot and sweaty. No, it’s not her first time.
Mondays are for restoration and reflection. And you do your best thinking over steaming bowls of seafood and Belgian beers. Your destination: Bin No. 18, where six bucks equals a bowl of wine-bathed mussels, which pair well with any of their eight Belgian brews. Reminds you of your days in Antwerp.
You’re no stranger to the finer points of French lawn bowling. But you can’t think of a finer patch of grass than the Biltmore’s manicured greens to get your boule on. Half-off champagne and vodka cocktails are a nice touch, too. Watch out for grass stains.
Sustain Morphs into a Beer Garden
You like beer. You like corn dogs. Allow the good people at Sustain to bring the two together (along with four other courses) for this pairing dinner with Cigar City Brewing. Suds include Jai Alai IPA and Tobacco Red Ale with dishes like Chili-Rubbed Quail. But we had you at corn dogs.
Dolphins Cheerleaders on the Catwalk
It’s Wednesday. You’re drinking a cocktail at LIV. There’s a catwalk brimming with Dolphins cheerleaders outfitted in bikinis. The reason: the unveiling of the 2012 Swimsuit Calendar. As if you needed a reason.
