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
Roller Girls, Derby Drinks and Chicken-Fried Burgers
Curses, the weekend is foiled again.
A Margarita Gauntlet at Talavera
Talavera’s challenging any notions you might have about the humble margarita with four new twists on the classic: Cilantro, Spicy Almond, Tamarindo and Spicy Coconut Mezcal. You’ll want to pair them with some beef tenderloin in poblano sauce from the special Cinco de Mayo menu. Tenderloin: the peanut butter to tequila’s jelly.
It’s the most thrilling two minutes in sports. But still—two minutes. So head to Yardbird, where in addition to hanger steaks and fried pickles you’ll fill the rest of your afternoon with the prerequisite mint juleps and a “best Derby hat” contest. Yes, time to break out the stovepipe.
Roller derby: making skates look tough since... always. And this Saturday, our Vice City Rollers are playing their first home game of the season at Suniland. Grab a beer as they take the rink against the Bradentucky Bombers. Oh no, not the Bradentucky Bombers.
A Vodka-Laced Garden Stroll
If you’ve never cocktailed your way through the lush bayside gardens of the Kampong, we’re going to suggest making your debut at Sunday’s Garden to Glass party. Essentially, it’s a clandestine gathering involving vodka drinks crafted from the exotic fruits grown on the property. Garden to highball.
National Hamburger Week. Get on It.
You always stay at the forefront of all burger developments. So you’ll want to stop by Edge and taste the latest in patty technology for National Hamburger Week. Expect things like chicken-fried Angus burgers and a mesquite beast topped with egg, bacon and ham. You’re gonna need a bigger bun.
