Things to do for May 17, 2012
Goat Roasts, Rocky Mountain Oysters and a Whiskey Club
The weekend has a very deep bench.
Upping Your Tennis Game. With Yoga.
Leagues are forming, your competitive juices are flowing. Time to hit... the yoga studio. This Mount Pleasant studio is capping off your training regimen with four sport-specific classes. Tonight’s running/tennis class focuses on legs, while a climbing/skydiving class focuses on balance and fear. Which is usually reserved for your opponents.
A Club Based Around Irish Whiskey
Irish Whiskey Public House is starting a secret brown-liquor society, which right off the bat will get you food specials and invites to tastings. And if you sample 40 of their whiskey selections, they’ll hand you a bottle of whiskey and stamp your name on a barrel. As far as we know, there’s no handshake.
A Rocky Mountain Oyster Extravaganza
You’ve always had a pretty adventurous palate. It’s time to find out just how adventurous. This group of Montana transplants is putting together their annual bacchanal of beer, Crown Royal and... special Western delicacies. Otherwise known as calf testicles.
Nothing against the “Food Food” window, but sustenance isn’t usually your primary concern at 9:30 Club. Except Sunday, when 25 restaurants and trucks (Cork, Matchbox) spread out inside and outside the club, along with live music, a DJ set by Eric Hilton and a cocktail competition. Which you should totally try to score backstage passes for.
Ordering Up a Whole Animal for Dinner
Your group roasts usually involve plenty of champagne and Don Rickles. At Poste, you can keep the champagne, but book their outdoor chef’s table and order up the animal of your choice—goat, spit-roasted turkey, whole fish—along with sides and dessert. You can still insult your friends.
