Things to do for February 16, 2012

The Weekender

Carnivals, Crawfish and Snow Tubes

The weekend is bead-azzled.

Thursday
Pho Pop-Up at Montserrat Canceled
UPDATE

Pho Pop-Up at Montserrat Canceled

On Tuesday, we told you about ELS’s pop-up pho restaurant this weekend. That event has been canceled. Stay tuned for updates, should it be rescheduled.

Friday
Brazilian Carnaval at Ceiba
BLAME IT ON RIO

Brazilian Carnaval at Ceiba

We hear this primary business has prevented you from making your annual pilgrimage to Carnaval. Pity. Sate yourself at Ceiba, where they’re pouring $5 caipirinhas and turning out Brazilian street food like cheese bread and steak churrasco. Now is a great time to wear the dress with the feathers.

Monday
Holiday Crawfish-Boil at Pearl Dive
LEARNING TO CRAW

Holiday Crawfish-Boil at Pearl Dive

If you’re lucky, you’ve got a day off on Monday. Which makes it as good a day as any for a crawfish boil. Here you’ll get suckling pig and cornbread, along with unlimited mudbugs and Abita Amber. Remember to pour a little out for George.

Tuesday
Tuxedos, Gowns and Masks at Fiola
MASQ-ED MARVELS

Tuxedos, Gowns and Masks at Fiola

It’s been a while since you donned a tux on a Tuesday (since last Tuesday, at least). Here with an excuse: Fiola, with a Venetian-style Carnevale masquerade party. You’ll wear the formal stuff; they’ll provide a mask and a four-course menu. Also: a valet for your gondola.

Tickets on Sale: Snow Tubing + Beer
DOWN THE TUBES

Tickets on Sale: Snow Tubing + Beer

Here: not much snow. In the hills of Pennsylvania: snow. That’s where you’ll head in a couple weeks, as the dodgeballing, soccer-playing folks at ZogSports are heading to Whitetail for an afternoon of tubing, followed by a visit to the Flying Dog Brewery. Which is best done post-tubing.
