Things to do for August 02, 2012
$1 Oysters. Party Buses. Amsterdam.
Spread the weekend liberally over the affected area.
Welcome to Oyster Happy Hour
Oysters. Cold. Briny. Come in their own biodegradable package. Pretty much perfect already. But say a little gastropub on Damen decided to hold a $1 oyster happy hour every day. Well, that’s maybe nirvana.
A New Brewpub Gets Brewing
The thing about brewpubs... they’re one-half pub, one-half brewery. In fact, that’s why they’re called brewpubs. (Well, and because “pubwery” sounds really weird.) Anyway, Atlas Brewing Company vats have finally begun pumping. We guess you can say they’ve reached maturity.
You and nine friends. Just standing around. Going nowhere. Partying. So far, so good. Except for the standing-around part. What you need: a bus. With a DJ. And cocktails. So tonight, the car-sharing app Uber lets you summon that very thing. Now, that’s service.
If Lollapalooza Sold T-Shirts and Hats
Pre-Lolla checklist: tickets. Sunscreen. A fanny pack with iPhone speakers. If you’re missing that last one—or a hat from Goorin Bros., or some Lolla T-shirts—visit this pop-up shop/party lounge, set up like a room in the forthcoming Thompson hotel. Also something you didn’t pack.
The Red-Light District in Andersonville
The red-light district in Amsterdam holds a certain allure for you. So be aware: Dutch-ish spot Vincent now has something called Koffeeshop, a new party with glow sticks, circus acts, loud music, cheap drinks and blow-up dolls wearing sexy lingerie. But oddly, no coffee.
