This week’s looking handsome. Because for $100, you’re getting $150 worth of grooming essentials from the likes of Kiehl’s and Baxter Finley. Plus, your backyard’s getting a secret grill, disguised as a potted plant. Finally, take 25% off a portable pro-grade DJ mixer, so easy to use, a caveman could do it.
Things to do for August 16, 2012
Just Another One of Those Whiskey-and-Ping-Pong Weekends
Weekend is as weekend does.
Billy Reid Does Autumn
Tonight, Billy Reid is having a party (live music, food from JCT. Kitchen, you know the deal). Also, they’re having a fall preview (yup, already). You’ll get an early look at things like roper boots, wool sport coats and other chilly-weather adornments. Plus, a few complimentary whiskey pours. As in, more than one.
A Filson Sale at Five Mile
You’ve got a vacation coming up. Maybe. Or you have a weekend coming up. Definitely. So you need a new duffel bag. Logically. Well, Five Mile is having a sale on all things handsome, leathery and rucksack-y from Filson. Coincidentally.
A New Dancing Goats in the O4W
Dancing Goats just opened a new location. Which is good news for your iced coffee/baked sugar donuts cravings. If you go tomorrow night, they’ll be handing out gratis cold-pressed joe. And if you have an O4W sticker, the donut will be on the house, too. Yup, they Godfather-offer’d you.
Flapper Girls in an Old Soap Factory
Auctions. Great place to meet guys with names like Archibald or The Commodore. Also, great place for honey-bourbon beef tenderloin. Sometimes. Like tomorrow. When there’s this speakeasy/silent-auction party going down in a derelict soap factory. The cocktails: old-timey. The waitresses’ attire: old-timey. The beef tenderloin: honey-bourbon.
Ping-Pong Tournaments at No. 246
Ping-pong tables. If you want to play a ping-pong tournament, you sort of need one. Well, No. 246 has one. And starting Sunday, they’re hosting a regular mixed-doubles tournament. Entry gets you beer and Fernet-Branca drink specials. Also, a shot at immortality.
