Things to do for August 30, 2012
Oysters, Pig Roasts and Coolio
Summers end. The weekend is forever.
This is one hard race. You’ll run more than three miles. In the mud. Over obstacles. Through tunnels. While wearing a costume (well, they are encouraged). But when you’re done, there’s beer... and a performance from Coolio. Which, come to think of it, would be a pretty good costume.
The Last Summer Soiree at Roof
It’s been one hell of a summer for partying at rooftop bars. So the best way to remember it is at this all-day throwdown atop the Wit, with DJs, fresh sushi and lots of Thai tiki punch on tap. Just like the Samoans do it.
A Pig Roast at Oak Street Beach
It wouldn’t be summer without a beachside pig roast. So... someone is finally throwing one for you. This beach hangout’s grand summer finale encompasses an all-you-can-eat buffet of roasted pig and pulled-pork sliders, plus margaritas and Mexican beers—which you also find integral to summer.
The All-Important Labor Day Brunch
You’re going to make the most of your day off. Really. You just have to wake up before, oh, say, midafternoon. Bull & Bear has housemade pop-tarts, a cereal buffet and endless Bloody Marys until 4pm. But it’s up to you to find your pants.
Your Oyster Stimulus Plan
It’s Monday. You’re off work. The only thing that could make that combination any better: some oysters. That’s perfectly logical. So you go to Shaw’s. Also logical. You find that the oysters are all half-price ($13.50 for a dozen). Which is not entirely logical. But you totally understand.
