Things to do for February 09, 2012
Beer, Sinatra and the Oscars
The weekend is like any other weekend, only more so.
Unveiling Tin Star’s Taco Taxi
Good news: we found a taxi that’ll always take credit cards. Bad news: they won’t drive you anywhere. But hey, they’ll give you some damn good tacos. This food truck creation from Tin Star will be serving up versions with Jamaican jerk chicken or pork in Uptown. Take that, Yellow Cab.
Normally, we wouldn’t send you into a jungle of discount shopping ruled by savage shoppers in high heels. But at the FIG, they’re offering gratis champagne and up to 75% off button-downs from Burberry and sunglasses from Tom Ford. The wild has never looked so handsome.
And Now, the Short Films Up for Oscars
The Magnolia is screening this year’s animated and live-action short film nominees (including A Morning Stroll, about a cartoon chicken in the big city). Consider this a surefire date move—not to mention a great way to get an edge for your Oscar party pool.
The problem with T-shirt shopping: the lack of beer. Enter Dowdy Studio, a retail shop in a sleek truck trailer, setting up at Goodfriend. Here, grab a brew, a “Drink Local” tee and/or a vintage necklace for that upcoming greeting card holiday. You always feel romantic around Presidents’ Day.
Sinatra and Bogart on Valentine’s Day
Oh, right... Valentine’s. If you happen to need a last-minute option: Ricki Derek is performing Sinatra hits at the Lakewood Theater, and then they’ll turn the lights down and play Casablanca on their movie screen. It’s as if you planned it all along.
