Things to do for December 22, 2011
Eggnog, Suits and Brisket Sandwiches...
The weekend is going to shoot your eye out.
Short Ribs and Beer by the Galleria
The Galleria: a real danger zone this time of year. Your escape: Townhouse, a sprawling new joint serving up short ribs, bacon-wrapped shrimp skewers and pecan pork chops. Order one of their 20 draft beers at the marble bar. Then do your shopping online.
50% Off Your Next Suit
Presents: wrapped. Mistletoe: hung. Your best blazer: let’s just say there was an eggnog incident. Good news—Pockets is taking 50% off suits and sport coats from the likes of Zegna and Canali. We’re thinking anything velvet’s a strong buy.
Getting Brisket from a Truck
Okay, we might have gotten you a gift. Nothing big, just the Munch Box, a new food truck from the Mercury guys. They’re rolling out now with barbecue brisket sandwiches and crème brûlée bowls. Please, no thank-you notes.
Rompope Hot Cocoa at the Pyramid Bar
Eggnog: glorious. Hot chocolate: same. Today, you can get the holy union of both at the Pyramid Bar—they’ve created a hybrid concoction with plenty of rum, ’nog and chocolate. No word on candy-cane ham...
Your Christmas Meal to Go
It’s not that you don’t want to cook a huge meal, it’s just... that you don’t want to cook a huge meal. Enter Bailey’s Prime Plus—they’ll cook up a 10-person feast with everything from lobster and lamb chops to fresh rolls and chocolate cake. Save your energy for the speed caroling.
