The Weekender

Buddy Holly, Sid Mashburn and That Football Game

Houston, we have a weekend.

Sid Mashburn Wants You in Winter Gear
SID AND PLAY

Sid Mashburn Wants You in Winter Gear

It may not seem like it now, but eventually... you may need some warmer clothes. You know, d’Avenza Prince of Wales jackets. Angora scarves. Cashmere sweaters. And turns out, Sid Mashburn is knocking 25% off most of his winter line for the next two weeks. Oh, and it’s all 50% off after that. We’re done here.

Five Mile Club Jackets, Now Almost Free

And speaking of winter gear, the gents over at the Five Mile Club decided it would also be a good idea to suit you up to the tune of 80% off—think Arcadian finery like flex down jackets from Tungsten, rugged fleeces and camo hunting bibs. Your lobster bib needs a break anyway.

Through Feb 5, Five Mile Club (online only, membership required), 706-543-0202

Friday
A Night of Buddy Holly-ing in L5P
MY BUDDY

A Night of Buddy Holly-ing in L5P

Tomorrow night. Star Bar. Over 12 bands will take to the stage to pay homage to the music of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper. What this means for you: thick glasses, skinny suits, beer and (more importantly) Peggy Sues as far as the eye can see. And music.

Feb 3, 9pm, $10 (door only), Hollyfest IV at Star Bar, 437 Moreland Ave

Saturday
Cocktails That Took 7 Weeks to Make
BARREL STREEP

Cocktails That Took 7 Weeks to Make

Barrel-aged cocktails. They’re kind of popping up everywhere these days. But since you’re okay with that, we figured you might like to know about Livingston’s effort: a Manhattan and a Negroni, each aged for five to seven glorious weeks in whiskey barrels before being submitted for your approval. Spoiler alert: you approve.

Sunday
In Case You Plan on Watching Football...
BOWL POSITION

In Case You Plan on Watching Football...

Oh yeah, the Super Bowl. By now, you’ve probably already settled on a couch, bar stool or beanbag chair to while away your Sunday on. But if not, you’ll want to get to Cypress Street early, because they’re giving you unlimited beer (Guinness, Brooklyn Lager, 420...) and wings for $35. Beats Funyuns.
