Things to do for April 19, 2012
Rooftop Pools, Cheesesteak Trucks and Pigs on a Spit
One if by land, two if by the weekend.
Billy Reid’s Backyard BBQ
Tonight, the second part of the Billy Reid concert series is taking place in, you guessed it, an old Uptown estate. There’ll be whiskey cocktailing, courtyard strolling and heavily slathered ribs from 18th & Vine KC Barbeque. Also, Michael Donner & The Southern Renaissance will perform. We’ll assume they’ve got a banjo guy.
A Truck Full of Cheesesteaks
Philadelphia. You hate their football team. You love their steak sandwiches. So we figured you’d want to know that Free Wheel’n Cafe now has a food truck dedicated specifically to the Whiz-topped subs. Or the pizza-sauce-and-mushroom-topped subs. There are really no wrong answers here.
Crawfish Boiling with a Top Chef
It’s been a while since you wore a plastic bib. So allow us to suggest swinging by Private | Social on Saturday for an afternoon-long crawfish boil with a Top Chef. They’ll supply the pots of Louisiana lobster (and $6 gin fizzes). You’ll heavily utilize their wet-nap supply.
A Roof. With a Pool.
There’s a pool on the roof of Glass. You already knew this. What you probably weren’t aware of, though: it opens for the season on Saturday. Our suggested course of action: reserve one of the poolside bungalows and order a bunch of margaritas. Radical plan, we know, but trust us.
A dinner in Rockwell doesn’t compare to a Hawaiian island luau. But throw in a pig roast with six courses (including dessert) from every part of the hog and, well, it still doesn’t compare to a Hawaiian island luau. But, hey, at least you’ll have pork belly.
