Perks is getting you first dibs on the WOWee ONE Pro, a tiny wireless speaker that turns any surface into a pounding subwoofer. (Travel case included, naturally.) We’re also sending you a silly amount of Pat LaFrieda short ribs from his Meat Men show, and handmade hardwood cases to hug your iPhone.
Things to do for May 03, 2012
Margaritas. Mint Juleps. Surviving the Apocalypse.
The weekend puts on its pants one leg at a time.
Getting Wilde at the Goat Farm
Oscar Wilde. Poet. Luminary. Also, the theme of a costume dinner party at the Goat Farm tomorrow night. What you can expect: guest chefs (hailing from places like the Lawrence), plenty of burlesque and a couple of circus performers. We apologize in advance if one’s a mime.
Juleps and ’Ritas: Unite
Whoever did the holiday scheduling this year really dropped the ball. Kentucky Derby, Cinco de Mayo. Mint juleps, anything flush with tequila. Thankfully, the good folks at Diesel feel your pain. Their solution: a joint party with race pools, tortilla tosses and a Derby-inspired sombrero contest. Time to defend that title.
Military Meals and Guns in a Gallery
The end of the world. It’s happening. One day. Probably. Bottom line: you need to get over to an art gallery and prepare yourself. Enter Beep Beep: a Midtown gallery that’s offering apocalypse survival tips (firing a WWII rifle/cooking MRE manicotti) and serving gratis beers. Seems like a winning combination.
A Taco-Eating Contest in Midtown
You like tacos. Nay, you love tacos. So Saturday, when Tap hosts a good old-fashioned taco-eating contest, you’ll enter, you’ll eat and you’ll win the whole damn thing. Or you’ll enter and just have a really gigantic dinner.
Chefs Playing Instruments
Chefs. If there’s one thing they’re good at, it’s cooking. If there’s another, it’s guitar solos. So swing by Buckhead Theatre on Monday for a 20-restaurant feast, an open bar and chef rock bands. Slated to perform: Joe Truex. Also, Ford Fry’s Five Bone Rack. Pretty sure that’s a lamb reference.
