Things to do for September 15, 2011
Bocce, French Movies and a Korean Bathhouse
Nobody puts the weekend in a corner.
An Evening of Frenchery Under the Stars
In a few hours, it will be Thursday night. Or as you like to call it... well, Thursday night. But if anything’s worth celebrating once every six days, it’s Weekend’s Eve. On the docket tonight: a French-themed happy hour followed by French-themed short films under the stars. With your French-themed date.
If You Build It, They Will Bocce
You remember Double Zero. It’s that place with all the cheese gelato, barrel-aged Negronis and wood-fired pies. But as of today, it’s also the place with all the bocce. Because they’ve just finished building two glorious thunderdomes of bocce battle out on the patio. Courts. They’re actually just courts.
Just an Unnecessary Amount of Cheese
Dear cheese: you’re delicious. We can put you on crackers, dip you in things... You deserve your own week. A week when cheesemakers could come from all around the nation to share different versions of you on the Westside. (Which reminds us, it’s Cheese Week at Star Provisions.)
Road-Tripping to a Korean Bathhouse
Let’s get you to a spa. Or better yet, a co-ed Korean bathhouse with heated mineral pools, green tea massages and seven tricked-out dry spa chambers. The caveat: it’s in Duluth. The reverse-caveat: you’ll be taking a shuttle from Midtown. You can check “co-ed bathhouse road trip” off your bucket list now.
Scavenging the Streets of the O4W
Let’s raise a glass to the Old Fourth Ward. Clandestine land of hidden rooftops, graffiti-strewn cocktail houses... and running around with a teammate gathering photographic evidence of its deepest, darkest secrets. As for the latter, just chalk it up to the scavenger hunt-y ways of the O4W Challenge. Or day drinking.
