This week’s Perks include: 20% off some handsome leather wallets, bags and iPad cases—hand-stitched by a Japanese leather god (the non-kinky kind). Also: beautiful bamboo charging docks for your iThings and design-award-winning wireless speakers—all for less than the going rate. Have at it...
Things to do for February 21, 2013
Gefilte Fish Tacos, Liquory Ice Cream and a 250-Pound Pig
Look at the weekend when it’s talking to you.
24 Hours of Ramen Noodles
It’s 4am. And you’ve been, well... never mind. Point is, you need food. Of the liquor-soaking ilk. And hey, the folks at Momi Ramen are happy to oblige. They’ve decided to serve up their noodles 24 hours a day, every day of the week. So, you know... nutritious.
A Jewish Deli + a Taqueria = This
And now for a mashup whose time has finally come: El Ñosh. It’s a Jewish deli/Latin taverna pop-up. Which... finally. Gefilte fish tacos with escabeche: yes. Mole braised brisket with sweet-plantain kugel: sure. Matzo brei tres leches: absolutely. No word on an appearance by Israel Gutierrez.
You may want to get to Pride & Joy’s patio party a bit early. Reason being: pitmaster Myron Mixon himself will be on hand to roast a 250-pound pig. And for $25 you’ll get two sides, cornbread and all-you-can-eat pig... until they run out. Consider this your starting pistol.
So this Saturday, the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck’s bringing their colorful wares to SoBe for a good ol’ fashioned social. There’ll be a bunch of stations with stuff like coconut sorbet, Nutella-lined cones and housemade whipped cream. Plus: liquory ice cream floats. Tell your flask to take the day off.
FDR Turns One. Time to Get Weird.
Last year, a bouncing baby FDR was born. And to celebrate, they’re having an anniversary party with gratis Rémy Martin cocktails and LeBron’s DJ spinning all night. So... that’s something. But they’re also having Big Boi from OutKast do his thing on the mic. So... that’s something, too.
