You're not typically one for psychics or tarot cards, but something tells us your future involves being at the Acqualina tonight for a cocktail party featuring Master Clairvoyant Todd Hershey and gratis drinks and hors d'oeuvres. You're getting very thirsty…
Things to do for March 12, 2009
Shenanigans, Tomfoolery and Psychic Cocktails
The weekend has the A/C on.
The Grandest Happy Hour
You already know the views and vibes at the Double Grand are worth braving the Doubletree for. Now the waterfront lounge provides a reason to make this your first post-work stop on Fridays, with two hours of absolutely complimentary mojitos and live DJs.
Spam Allstars Concert
We'll forgive the DWNTWN development committee their blatant disregard for vowels if only because they organize events like this Friday's free outdoor concert, featuring beer, breeze and your favorite improvisational Latin hip-hop troupe, the Spam Allstars.
Starting Monday, the Forge ups the ante with a three-courser dishing out petit filet with truffle hollandaise, white chocolate key lime pie and escargot strudel. To find something like this anywhere else, you'd probably have to visit Dubai. (No, seriously—they've got a sister restaurant there.)
If there's one spot this week you choose to don a green hat and chug lime-colored beer, let it be the block party at Irish Times. Two live bands and many, many bars set up along the closed-off street. If this doesn't get you Riverdancing, nothing will.
Irish holidays aside, humpday usually finds you jonesing for a full-bodied red. The in-house resto at the Ritz now has you covered with 75 wines at 60 percent off—meaning you can start with a bottle for $15… and move on to a second bottle for $15.
