Here’s how you’ll win Valentine’s Day this year: 1) Get a box of spiked chocolates for 25% off. 2) (Barely) dress her in some French-lace lingerie from Fleur du Mal. 3) Send a bouquet of fresh roses (grown on a South American volcano)—for $32. Then... commence the ravishing.
Things to do for January 31, 2013
Pork Snacks, Football and an Anatomically Correct Chocolate Heart
Elementary, my dear weekend.
GoodFellas at the Texas Theatre
De Niro, Pesci, Scorsese’s mom... Good movie, that GoodFellas. And it’s playing tonight at the Texas Theatre. You’ll want to stop at the concession stand/bar first, grab a little popcorn, something with whiskey in it. (Like a big cup.) Then sit back and watch Tommy get his shine box.
Something Chocolaty/Creepy for V-Day
This Valentine’s Day, you could go the traditional route. Flowers, jewelry, a sky-written sonnet. Or better yet, maybe just an anatomically correct chocolate heart. This latest creation from Dude, Sweet Chocolate is two pounds of dark chocolate shaped into a human heart. We hear the pulmonary valve is delicious.
A Pop-Up Barbershop at Rye 51
Rye 51... great place to pick up some spring attire. And Saturday, it’s also a great place to score a shave and a haircut. That’s because Hair by Charlie is on site armed with hot towels and a strop. So you’ll want to swing by for a cleanup. And a gratis whiskey.
Watch the Super Bowl Here
Believe it or not, they kept playing football after the Cowboys’ season ended. And there’s a big game this Sunday. So get to the Granada, park yourself in front of their 30-foot projection screen and have a brisket taco or two. Ah, who we kidding, it’s the Super Bowl. Have nine.
A Pork Homage at FT33
You’ll do a lot for a good pork snack. And if that means hunkering down with discounted beers and wines, well, so be it. Because on Tuesdays, FT33’s offering several pork-related items (ciccioli, pork-liver mousse) right at the bar. So... get to that bar. Bring a friend. Ask first if he’s kosher.
