Your Perks this week: some regal bar sets from the golden age of imbibing—complete with rare booklets of recipes for old-school cocktails. (In case you need ideas.) Other beautiful things: 20% off the perfect desktop speakers, and some limited-edition surf art from a collective of international photographers.
Things to do for April 04, 2013
The Weekend Menu: Bacon Beignets, Grilled Cheese and Candy
The weekend hates it when you make that face.
Creative Uses of Bacon, Part 497
Powdered sugar. Sweetened condensed milk. Crunchy pork belly. All potential themes for your next house party. Also: the accoutrements you’ll find on the new beignets at the Passenger. They go great with cocktails. In fact, they go great with life.
A Month of Grilled Cheeses
You know how Grilled Cheese Month always sneaks up on you. Yup, it’s here again. Your HQ for grilled-cheese-related festivities: Bourbon Steak, which is rolling out one new variation each week, like truffled pecorino with foie gras butter on brioche. It’s naughty. Freaky naughty.
Bottomless Crawfish, Pig and Beer
Sometimes you want to ease into your weekend. Other times you want to show up at Pearl Dive at noon to partake in a bottomless Louisiana feast of crawfish, suckling pig, shrimp, cornbread and sausage. Oh, and Abita beer. Once again... it’s bottomless.
Homemade Candy on the Hill
You’re on a post-Peeps comedown. You need a fix, and bad. Well, here’s a pop-up by a new dealer in candy and desserts. Every Monday, they’ll be hawking unlimited moon pies, caramels, truffles and mallow cakes. Wash them down with a specialty cocktail or two. To keep you balanced.
What a Hamilton Gets You These Days
You like pizza. You like burgers. Well, you’ll like Tuesdays and Wednesdays this month. For the 10th anniversary of the original Matchbox, you can grab a small pizza for 10 bucks on Tuesdays. Then come back on hump day for 10 mini burgers for 10 bucks. It has all the makings of a challenge.
