We assume you need to buy someone a gift. So here are three great options: 1) A snow-globe-sized wireless speaker, 30% off. 2) Spending $25 and getting $50 worth of handsome gadgets and accessories from LA gadget shop Alpha. 3) Impossibly delicious, freshly baked cookies delivered directly from Brooklyn.
Things to do for December 13, 2012
Bourbon till Christmas Eve, Confetti Cannons and a Burrito-Eating Contest
The weekend has excellent cheekbones.
Wine, Crustaceans and Flagrant Giftery
Before we release you to the weekend, we need you to do something for us: 1) go to Miller Brothers (you know, that place in Buckhead with all the blazers and ties and handsomeness), 2) do a little almost-last-minute holiday shopping, and 3) eat gratis seafood and drink gratis wine. Great, thanks.
Twelve Days of Bourbon at Local Three
Christmas. Great holiday. You know, because of all the cheer. Also, because it inspired the gents over at Local Three to feature a different bourbon for 12 days straight. Tonight, it’s Old Fitzgerald’s 1849. Tomorrow, it’s Four Roses Yellow Label. Saturday, it’s... another bourbon. Who’s keeping score at this point.
Antica Posta Has a New Chef’s Table
Antica Posta. Great date spot. And now, it’s a great grab-some-friends-and-eat-at-a-table-in-the-middle-of-the-kitchen spot. Imagine a dessert pantry. Now, imagine it with a table, 11 chairs, Tuscan meatballs, wine and special attention from the chef. That’s their new chef’s table. That’s also just fantastic.
Gold Room Is Three. Fire Up the Cannons.
Three years ago, a bouncing baby Gold Room was born. And to celebrate, they’re having an anniversary party and commissioning a DJ from LA. So that’s worth checking out. They’re also commissioning body-painted women and aerialists and firing off confetti cannons everywhere. So that’s also worth checking out.
Just a Burrito-Eating Contest
Hey, look, the Sheik is also turning three. And they’re acknowledging it with a burrito-eating contest. The goal: eat at least three of them in 45 minutes. It’ll be you versus some other contestants versus the owner. Which seems a little fixed.
