The Weekender

Just Another One of Those Whiskey-and-Ping-Pong Weekends

Weekend is as weekend does.

Thursday
Billy Reid Does Autumn
FREE FALL

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
IN THE BAG

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.

Friday
A New Dancing Goats in the O4W
BEAN COUNTER

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
DAPPER DANDY

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.

Sunday
Ping-Pong Tournaments at No. 246
KING PONG

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.
