This week, we’re hooking you up with rugged Italian-made leather bags from Peter Nappi and selvage denim jeans from Tennessee’s Imogene + Willie. Oh, and we’re sending you on a postcard-worthy luxury camping trip in Montana—let’s just say there are camping butlers involved.
Things to do for February 16, 2012
Carnivals, Crawfish and Snow Tubes
The weekend is bead-azzled.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
