Our eyes are set on one thing: the Super Bowl. For your snacking pleasure, Perks is hooking you up with bacon bourbon caramel corn (yes, it’s as delicious as it sounds) and your choice of three moonshine-infused salsas or barbecue sauces. And to complete your experience: surround sound speakers.
Things to do for January 26, 2012
Frank Sinatra, Bagpipes and Oyster Happy Hour
The weekend bows to no one.
The Oyster Happy Hour You Require
So Park 75 has been throwing this little oyster happy hour lately. It’s where you don’t pay much for drafts like Fat Tire and oysters laced with red wine shallot pearls and yuzu vinaigrette. Anyway, it ends Tuesday, so you might want to get on that. For the next six days.
Chinese New Year + Bill Hallman = This
Bill Hallman likes to throw parties. You know this. You also love this. Next up: a Chinese New Year soiree complete with a DJ and gratis Asian cocktails. Oh, and he’s also knocking about 70% off winter gear and rolling out the new spring line. Weird, considering we’re still waiting on winter.
Strange Things Afoot in Woodruff Park
Woodruff Park may look a bit... different than what you’re used to this weekend. For starters, it’s going to be crawling with about 10 different dance troupes and performance artists all doing their own thing in and around the park grounds. Think of it as a really weird outdoor circus.
Frank Sinatra Would Like a Word
Ol’ Blue Eyes. Now there’s a guy who’s given you a lot—“Strangers in the Night.” “That’s Life.” Pocket squares. And you can pay your Rat Pack-y respects this weekend by checking out My Way, a Sinatra-specific musical revue that spans 50 years of his career. Might want to take notes.
Beer and Bagpipes in Virginia Highland
Diesel in Virginia Highland is about to get really... Scottish. As in Scotch eggs, blood pudding, Highland Brewing Company drafts and, of course, live bagpipers. Yes, it’s the latest installment of their Bacon & Beer series, and the whole place is going full-Connery for one night only. Kilt up at your own discretion.
