You’re also getting 60% off dapper dress shirts from the legendary Drake’s London, and 30% off footwear from the British gods of shoemaking, Grenson. See: huge things.
Things to do for January 03, 2013
A Weekend Full of Pasties, Naughty Carolers and New Beer
The weekend is ticking.
Meet Lonerider. It’s Beer. It’s Good.
So there’s this Raleigh-based brewery called Lonerider. They make beer. Beer that’s never been available in this town until tonight. Because that’s when the Fred Bar (that speakeasy-y Taco Mac basement bar) will be pouring drafts of their hefeweizen-style Shotgun Betty and tapping a cask of an American brown. And generally making history.
Oh Nothing, Just a Random Speaker Sale
You’re still bitter. No one got you that red, coaxial, spherical Elipson speaker that you’ve been dropping hints about. No worries, though. This local art studio/audio equipment store (that old story) is having a huge sale on everything. So go. Get those speakers. Then throw a party and don’t invite anyone.
The Tardiest Holiday Party Ever
The holidays. Now that they’re really and truly over, you can breathe/laugh/make fun of them. Because some local filmmakers and writer types will basically be roasting Christmas in the Highland Inn Ballroom. Grab a drink, generally make merry and then catch the naughty carolers’ performance. They’re like carolers, just... naughty.
A Burlesque Pageant. That’s Your Cue.
This Saturday, you might want to head to Five Spot. It’s not mandatory or anything, but a local burlesque troupe (along with some be-pastied friends from New York and LA) will duel it out on stage to see who’s the sexiest of them all. There are no losers.
A Whole Bunch of Chinese-ness at the Fox
If the creators of Cirque du Soleil and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon got all brainstormy together, you’d basically have this—a massive stage show with a giant orchestra and 100 Chinese dancers flipping around everywhere. It’s the kind of thing a date might remember. Or at least not sleep through.
