Things to do for September 06, 2012
This Weekend: Watching Springsteen from a Rooftop
The weekend is Friday’s extended sax solo.
Yes, Buying New Clothes Deserves a Party
Tonight is Fashion’s Night Out, a citywide shopping extravaganza. But, well, you don’t really need all that jazz. You just want a good pair of Levi’s, a sturdy pair of vintage Red Wing boots, food from Osteria Via Stato and gratis booze from Koval Distillery. You know, the basics.
Your Rooftop Springsteen Tickets...
Regarding those Springsteen tickets you forgot to buy, you now have a choice: go the scalper route or go the rooftop route. Remember, the rooftop has unlimited beer and wine, plus a menu with everything from hot dogs to steak. Which so few scalpers offer these days.
Making Obama’s Favorite Beer
There’s been a lot of talk about Obama this week. Mainly, of course, concerning the declassification of his honey-ale recipe. So swing by this little homebrew shop, take a brewing class and pick up all the supplies you need to make the POTUS’s brew. Basically, a stimulus package for beer.
Here, Have a Lobster Roll
A late-summer riverside picnic sounds like a nice way to loll through a warm weekend afternoon. Hot dogs. Hamburgers. Corn. Lobster rolls. But it would be better with half-price beer and pitchers of rum punch. In fact, your lobster wouldn’t have it any other way.
Pasta and 60 Ferraris in the Loop
Ferrari. Pasta. Carla Bruni. Such are the wonders of Italy. And while Bruni won’t be attending this food-and-wine-and-fast-cars party for Italian Village’s 85th anniversary, you’ll still find 60 of the luxury automotives in attendance. Ferrari: always great at overcompensation.
