Exclusive: a bottle of rare scotch made from seven legendary (and extinct) distilleries. And you’re getting it for a song... Also, take up to 27% off supplies for your next truffle bender, and 30% off marshmallows with booze in them. (Yep, that’s now a thing.)
Things to do for September 27, 2012
Skrillex, Squid Ink and a Hunk of Jarlsberg. That’s a Weekend.
No sleep till weekend.
CounterPoint Is Upon Us
So, there’s some tiny concert happening here this weekend. You should probably go. Check out like 90 electronic artists (Bassnectar, Skrillex). And if that gets old: ride a Ferris wheel, watch Greg Mike make art, mime in a silent disco or camp... it’s sort of like Woodstock, but with less peace/love and more glow sticks.
And Then the Southern Version of That
Or there’s this other festival. It’s on the Chattahoochee, and it’s more of a hot-air balloon ride/bonfire/soul-rock kind of scene. You’ll want to get there early, grab a local beer. Some barbecue. And head straight for the corn maze. Better ration that beer in case you get lost.
An Airport Hangar with Painted Models
It’s fall. Which means it’s time for models to strip down, get slathered in paint and walk a runway. Yes, Bodies as a Work of Art is back. Expect the same kind of hedonism as always: vodka. Aerialists. Models being silently judged. Just expect it in a giant airport hangar.
La Pietra Cucina Makes Some Moves
LPC. It’s this new spot for Italian. Well, okay, not exactly new. See, it used to be called La Pietra Cucina. Only now, it has a different interior, chef (a Hell’s Kitchen runner-up) and menu (think squid-ink spaghetti). But the fried olives, that’s the same.
Five Days of Cheese at Star Provisions
Oh, cheese. It never gets old. And when it does, well, then it’s just blue cheese. Anyway, you’ll be pleased to know that it’s time for Star Provisions’ Cheese Week. Go by for gratis tastings on your lunch break. There’ll be samples from Vermont, California and local farms. Eat your heart out, Wisconsin.
