This week’s Perks: $150 toward a portrait made from your DNA, and a 25-dose supply of hangover cures for 37 bucks. Oh, and exclusively for Outlook.com members, Virgin America is taking 20% off a select flight. (If you somehow don’t have an Outlook.com account... you should probably get on that.)
Things to do for March 14, 2013
A New Growler Shop, a Non–St. Pat’s Party and ’70s Sid Mashburn
Things fall apart; the weekend cannot hold.
A New Growleria for St. Paddy’s Day
You don’t discriminate against beer. You like big ones. Small ones. Short ones. Tall ones. And hey, a new 40-tap-strong growler shop just quietly opened on Briarcliff. So pick up 64 ounces of Maredsous Brune (it’s a dark Belgian dubbel) for Sunday’s festivities. Just think of it as a lot of small ones.
There’s a Peter Millar spring trunk show and sale happening at Miller Brothers this weekend. You should really go browse this thing. Grab a whiskey and check out some swim trunks—orange ones with little giraffes. Teal ones with sea turtles. That kind of thing. They also come in, like... blue.
’70s-Inspired Sid Mashburn Gear Is Here
Sid Mashburn just launched some new gear for spring. And it’s kind of ’70s-ish. So if you’re going for a Fleetwood-Mac-circa-Rumours look (or... another look), grab a pair of those sky-blue twill Levi’s. Or a green-red-and-yellow plaid sport coat. Then maybe go protest something.
Your Next Date Night Goes Like This...
For the next two weekends only, Park 75 will have a special nighttime chocolate menu. Which happens to be just the kind of thing a date might go for. Look for rotating desserts like a dark-chocolate sour-cream cake with raspberry “caviar” and make-your-own brownie sundaes. And then eat them.
A Party That Happens to Not Be Irish
If you just start wandering around this weekend, you’ll eventually hit some St. Patrick’s Day block party. But maybe that’s not your thing. Maybe an all-day crawfish boil at Big Tex is your thing. They’ll also have seven bands and plenty of Mexican beer. You can still dye it green, though.
