Things to do for September 06, 2012
D-Wade, Dolphins Tailgating and Plenty of Bourbon
Crouching tiger, hidden weekend.
A Fashion’s Night Out Block Party
Tonight, Fashion’s Night Out takes over the city. Your move: the Design District. They’re going big with a block party headlined by Afrobeta and a mega pop-up market housing 30 designers. The Scotch & Soda guys will also be there debuting their new line and pouring cocktails. You’ll take two of everything.
Celebrating Bourbon Month with Bourbon
In honor of National Bourbon Heritage Month (jeez, it seems to come earlier and earlier every year), Bourbon Steak wants to do something special. So they’re putting together a three-tumbler tasting flight, pairing it with butter truffle popcorn and conducting history lessons on the dearly beloved brown liquor. Yes, there’ll be a pop quiz.
There’s a new art lounge/gallery space opening in a historic Downtown building. And they’re throwing a housewarming (we mean, historic-Downtown-building-warming) party tomorrow. It’ll be one of those DJ-spinning, exotic-car-ogling, burlesque-dancing, gratis-rum-cocktailing affairs. Go. Support the pasties movement.
Tailgating Poolside at the Clevelander
The Dolphins this year should be... something. On the bright side, your tailgating situation suddenly got markedly better. Starting Sunday, the Cleve’s broadcasting the game and offering a $20 Bloody bar, bacon-wrapped hot dogs and naked poolside body painting.
Dwyane Wade Has Some Fatherly Advice
Dwyane Wade. Maybe you’ve heard of the guy. Anyway, he’s written a book, A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball (yup, it’s a nail-biting psychological thriller). On Sunday, he’s going to be at Books & Books to sign a bunch of copies. And take a bunch of pictures. And... no, he’s not bringing the trophy.
