Things to do for July 12, 2012
Mussels, Mimes and Celebrating the French
E.T. phone weekend.
65% Off Stanley Korshak
Stanley Korshak’s having a sale. A big one. Like, 65% big. Which means you can acquire that summery herringbone suit and still have money left over for a gingham button-down and beige moccasins. Pants, like always, are optional.
$1 Cocktails. For Lunch.
The Chesterfield has been quietly serving $1 cocktails for lunch. How that’s accomplished quietly, we’ve no idea. But pair your Cuban sandwich with, say, an Old Fashioned... and it’s just 100 pennies. Or 20 nickels. Or five dimes, one quarter and... you get the point—it’s cheap.
2x the Brunch at Rock and Roll Tacos
Rock and Roll Tacos brunch: it’s a good one. And it’s just been extended to Saturday. Which means you can now start your weekend with breakfast tacos or hangover-curing menudo. Plus margaritas. And live music. (Not a known hangover cure.) In fact, this is starting to sound a lot like your Friday night.
Mussels and Mimes in Bishop Arts
Bishop Arts is having a party. For France. But hey, you’re invited, too. Also invited: French maids, mimes, accordions, crepes, lots of wine and local chefs. Who will be competing to win your heart. But mostly, to win a mussels competition.
ZaZa’s Bastille Day Pool Party
Celebrate Bastille Day in the traditional French fashion: by storming something. In this case, a pool. At Hotel ZaZa. Once inside, you’ll lounge with mustachioed Francophiles. In berets. But also: a DJ, appetizers and cocktails. You should definitely storm the cocktails.
