Things to do for July 12, 2012
The Weekender: Crawfish, Oysters and Swim Trunks
Who’s on first. The weekend’s on second.
Unionmade Is Cleaning House
Sure is getting hot these days. Kind of makes you want to toss all your pants and sweaters into the street. Semi-relatedly, Unionmade is now tossing Saltbox swim trunks and Sunspel T-shirts into your bag at 40% off. That works, too.
Finally: Cocktails at the Little Door
You know the Little Door as a spot to hit for a special-occasion dinner in a very French garden courtyard... after getting drinks somewhere else first. Because for some crazy reason, they never had a full liquor license. Now they do. Let the Bourbon Bellinis flow.
$2 Oysters at Bouchon
July 14. Bastille Day. It’s a very important holiday. Because it was on this day in 2012 that you stormed the patio at Bouchon for $2 oysters, available all day long anywhere in the restaurant. History will look upon you favorably.
A Massive Crawfish Boil on Melrose
As the (virtual) mercury climbs in your (phone’s) thermometer, you’re starting to feel like you live in the Deep South. Our advice: embrace it. Grab a table on the Foundry patio come Sunday, and for $25 they’ll get you all the crawfish and vodka-spiked punch you can put down. Nothing says “Deep South” like Melrose.
