This week, we’re handing you the keys to a Ferrari—and four other supercars—for a glorious day of racing. Plus, we’re airmailing you a bevy of holiday-appropriate meats from Robinson’s Prime Reserve for 25% off. And then helping you cook those meats to perfection with the ingenious iGrill. (We’ll explain.)
Things to do for December 15, 2011
Bourbon, Skiing and Tubas
The weekend likes the way you toddy.
Your First Drink in Patagonia
As an introduction to its new Gold Coast shop, Patagonia welcomes you for drinks, raffles and a DJ. Because when you’re buying appropriate skiwear, you want to know two things: how it will function on the slopes and how it will function in Aspen’s finer nightclubs.
Drinking bourbon during the winter. Sure. A solid choice. But you’ll need to eat, too. So you’ll gorge on five courses of Southern decadence, each paired with a different bourbon, helping you on your long quest to find a perfect match for bourbon-chocolate bread pudding.
Après-Ski, sans the Skiing
For a skiing party closer to home, the natural choice: Bridgeport. In addition to hot toddies and spiced ciders, if you say “Icelantic” at the store counter/entrance of this themed party, you’ll get a raffle ticket for new ski poles. So wear your dress skis just in case you win.
Take some really good craft beer. Then add a lot of pizza. Well, it sounds pretty promising. What you really need: a Twister tourney with $50 gift certificates for the winners. Finally, that yoga class you took is going to pay off.
Nothing says Christmas like the ornately decorated Grand Ballroom of the Palmer House. Just as long as it’s stuffed with 400 tuba players puffing out their cheeks in service of your favorite holiday tunes. And good news: this Saturday, it will be.
