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.
<em>GoodFellas</em> 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.
