Things to do for June 21, 2012
Bacon Bourbon, Dog Karaoke and Pythons for Dinner
A weekend divided against itself cannot stand.
Sexy Nudes and Bubbly at Villa Azur
The folks from Avant Gallery are teaming up with Villa Azur for an art cocktail party launch full of adult beverages and... other adult pursuits, like photography. Tastefully nude photography. Anyway, the restaurant will have photographer Guy le Baube’s X-rated work on display for the next month. Remember, it’s not polite to stare.
Ping-Pong, Beer... and Your Dog
Dog. Man’s best friend. Also, man’s best wingman. So you’ll want to bring the lil’ guy to Chalk on Friday for Dog Party Day, an evening of beer, table tennis and, for your pup, K9 karaoke. You sense an “Islands in the Stream” duet coming on...
Your morning coffee: sacred. Your love of beer: well-documented. Your feelings on combining the two: sure, but only if it’s Gravity Brewbar and Panther Coffee. And only if they throw a block party with food from GastroPod to celebrate their caffeinated hoppy creation. Um, okay, you got it.
Snacking on Some Python for Dinner
You were just thinking the other day: you need more invasive species in your diet. For instance, an exotic dinner this Saturday, resplendent with wild boar, lionfish and python prepared by chefs from some local top spots (Haven, Sugarcane, Michael’s Genuine). Python... tastes nothing like chicken.
A Good Ol’ Summer BBQ at the Dutch
The summer gods have spoken. A cow must be sacrificed... Texas-barbecue-style. Appease the deities this Tuesday at the Dutch through heaps of smoked brisket, spare ribs and bourbon infused with a touch of bacon. As the best bourbons are.
