Things to do for May 02, 2013
Cuban Burgers, Mint Juleps and a Few Hundred Beers
That’ll do, weekend. That’ll do.
The Best Table at Bazaar
Two’s company, three’s a crowd. But four, well, that’s a tapas party at the Bazaar. See, they’ve got a new quad-seat tapas bar here that puts you in the direct vicinity of both the cocktails and the José Andrés small plates (think Japanese tacos). Coincidentally, that’s a very good place to be.
Derbying It Up at Bourbon Steak
Juleps. Bourbon. Gratis canapés. Bacon corn fritters. Strange hats. That’s what you’re going to find at Bourbon Steak’s Kentucky Derby watch party on Saturday. So go, grab something in a silver cup and position yourself in front of a flat-screen for the race. All two minutes of it.
Cinco de Mayo is Sunday. We assume that’s something you’ll want to celebrate. Probably with margarita punch bowls, a cactus ringtoss and a piñata stuffed with mini liquor bottles. Nod if we’re right... then go to Radio and enjoy. Don’t forget to take one of the fake mustache party favors.
Massive Quantities of Beer in Midtown
There are bars that serve beer. And then there are bars that serve all the beer. Take the new World of Beer opening in Midtown, for example. They’re going to carry 500 different brews, 50 taps and zero snacks. Yeah, it’s BYO snacks here. They had to save room for the beer.
Fritas. They’re those glorious Cuban burgers stuffed with potato sticks. Well, good news. This Monday, you’ll sample Pubbelly’s, El Rey de las Fritas’ and Meat Eatery’s versions of the patty, along with a scoop of Materva ice cream from Azucar. We assume Monday is some sort of fake fritas-related holiday...
