Things to do for July 05, 2012
Volleyball, Sangria and ’80s Music
The weekend is the one lighting fireworks outside your window at 3am.
In Case You’re Not Busy Getting Gored
Last year, you ran with the bulls. This year, you’ll spin with the flamencos. Tavernita is celebrating the Pamplona spirit with dancers, cognac sangria and gratis red bandanas—before challenging you to partake in Sunday’s pintxos-eating contest. But be careful: those sticks are pointy.
If You Really Must Sweat, Do It Here
Sure, when 300 teams converge on North Avenue, you expect the summer’s biggest beach volleyball tournament to turn into its biggest beach dance party. Champagne, DJs and cold beer also help. Oh, and be sure to hit the VIP sun deck. Sand in your champagne is such a bummer.
Quick, picture the ’80s. The first image you see: Mr. T drinking champagne out of Joan Collins’s slipper while Emmanuel Lewis menacingly solves a Rubik’s Cube in the corner. Strange. Well, anyway, relive the champagne part—and the music part—at this nutty ’80s-themed champagne party.
Publican Quality Meats Hosts a Barbecue
You probably saw this coming. A place specializes in great meat. It’s summer. Yeah, a parking-lot barbecue was pretty inevitable. Load up on grilled soft-shell crab, flank steak, veggies and cake. You’ve been waiting to break the grilled cake barrier.
Yes, It’s Totally, Perfectly Legal
With all the news about the new marijuana law, we want to assure you: Sola’s prix fixe of Asian greens with hemp-seed vinaigrette, hemp-sesame-seed-crusted salmon and hemp-seed brittle is all perfectly legit. And we wouldn’t narc if it weren’t.
