Things to do for May 02, 2013
Mint Juleps, Mariachis and Don Corleone on a Patio
... and it’s the weekend winning by a nose.
A Book Full of Critical BBQ Intel
You know Tim Byres. The Smoke and Chicken Scratch guy. Right, well, he’s got a book now. It’s full of recipes. But also some helpful tips on all kinds of barbecue-related essentials. Like how to cut brisket. And how to properly smoke a pipe. And... other essential stuff.
Sandwiches and Cake Pops Downtown
There’s a new breakfast/lunch/dessert shop in Downtown. It’s called the Hospitality Sweet and they serve things like french toast soufflés. Also, chicken salad sandwiches and cake pops (so many cake pops). It’ll really come in handy tomorrow around 1:16pm. Or whenever you typically take a lunch break.
Celebrating Cinco at Hacienda
Okay, yeah, this Cinco de Mayo party’s actually on the fourth. Apparently, these guys couldn’t wait another day to block off the parking lot and get started. Stop by for mariachi bands, free-flowing margaritas and a kiddie pool filled entirely with queso. Assuming you bring your own kiddie pool and queso.
Watching the Derby at Victor Tangos
There’s a big race this weekend. Involves horses. Called the Kentucky Derby. Yup, that’s the one. Anyway, Victor Tangos is hosting a little soiree to celebrate. Expect obscenely large hats, minty bourbon cocktails and about two minutes of exhilarating Derby action. Horses are fast.
Watching The Godfather on a Patio
Central 214 continues its alfresco movie nights this Sunday with The Godfather. There’ll be food. There’ll be drinks. There’ll be... probably a bunch of people sitting around speaking in accents and making propositions they’re confident you won’t decline. Or something like that.
