Things to do for November 17, 2011
This Weekend: Johnny Cash and Turkey Bowling
The weekend just texted Rick Perry the third thing.
Half-Off Southern Gear at Billy Reid
Your first choice for winter threads with a hint of Southern charm is taking up to 50% off their fall duds. Meaning: you can stock your winter closet with cashmere jackets, leather boots, plaid button-downs and navy cardigans. Unfortunately, you cannot take their whiskey home.
Getting Thanksgiving to Go
Thanksgiving’s a lot of labor: the cooking, the carving... the roll-passing. Or, you know, place a pickup order for a full-on feast at Highland Park Village. They’ll prepare a meal for up to 10 relatives with turkey, stuffing, cranberries and pumpkin pie. Save your energy for nap time.
Two New Ways to Power-Lunch
Option 1: Morton’s is firing up their grill for eight special afternoons in December. Think lobster bisque and rib eyes. (Because that’s what they’re serving.) Option 2: Private | Social is finally opening their doors at 11am for lamb burgers and Surf n’ Turf Sushi. Option 3: Sorry. Oops.
The weather: still not freezing. To celebrate, you’ll head to an outdoor screen with 1,000 other movie lovers and watch a film about Johnny Cash. Go early, grab a cocktail and claim one of the 500 chairs. It’s hard to tap your foot to “Jackson” on a blanket.
Turkey Bowling, Now a Thing
Yes, this is happening. You and your bowling shoes can head to Three Sheets, enjoy some gratis whiskey, and grab a frozen turkey (ideally a 12-pounder) and gracefully heave it toward the bowling pins. Finally, an excuse to use your refrigerated bowling bag.
