Things to do for June 14, 2012
Moonshine, Sausage Making and Lambrusco-Fueled Ping-Pong
My weekend ’tis of thee.
A Downtown Café with Parisian PB&Js
A French café just opened downtown. The owner/chief pastry technician hails from the Highland Bakery and Alon’s. So expect sandwiches like the Boulevard de Saint-Germain (PB&J on a French loaf) and the Boulevard des Italiens (grilled cheese on a French loaf). Hmm, there might be a trend forming here...
Listen, he won’t admit it, but if you get Dad another tie or coffee mug this year, he will in fact love you less. Instead, try the Bill Hallman in VaHi or Atlantic Station. They’re doing 20% to 50% off now through Father’s Day on all things collared-, fedora- and hoodie-related. Pick a shirt, any shirt.
Seeing How the Sausage Gets Made
This Saturday: a butchering class at Pine Street Market. You’ll spice, stuff and twist pork sausage, like it’s your job. Then, you’ll eat a big lunch of bacon, like it’s your job. And then you’ll take home the sausage you made, like it’s... a game-show parting gift.
Teacups Filled with Moonshine
There’s a new moonshine menu happening downtown. It’s styled all 1920s. So the women’s cocktails come in teacups. And the men’s drinks come in something silver-plated. Also, they won’t serve you unless you’re wearing a bowler and have one of those Rollie Fingers mustaches. Totally kidding, but still, Rollie mustache, consider it...
No. 246 Gets a Ping-Pong Table
This can’t be a coincidence. On the same day that sparkling wine celebrates its most sacred holiday (National Lambrusco Day, naturally), No. 246 also debuts their brand-new ping-pong table. So, a party it is. With themed cocktails from Greg Best of H&F. And a bluegrass band. And an obscene amount of table tennis.
