Things to do for March 12, 2009
Guinness Ice Cream, Bourbon Lollipops and Watchmen
The weekend is feeling lucky.
By now you've had the Secret Breakfast, and you might've even tried Guinness Gingerbread, but for a limited time, try a scoop or two of Guinness Soda Bread Ice Cream, with a dusting of bacon peanut brittle for good luck.
Now that you've watched the movie (or at least the trailer), check out sketches, weapons and props from it, plus super-heroine Silk Spectre II's dominatrix-like latex number, sadly sans Malin Akerman modeling it—but you can use your imagination…
For your St. Paddy's imbibing, each of B&B's alcohol-mixing savants have whipped up a fresh cocktail, making liberal use of Irish whiskey favorites Jameson and Bushmills. Don't miss Finnegan's Wake: bacon-infused Black Bush whiskey, Turbinado syrup, bitters, an egg and skewered black beans.
You're not one for green beer, but we think you'll enjoy Bar Drake's Mini Corn Beef & Cabbage Sliders, especially since they're prepped by a Top Chef Chicago alum. Throw in a few pints of Guinness and call it dinner.
And in case you get tired of all that drinking—but not all the alcohol—try one of the just-released and conveniently portable Bourbon lollipops. Perfect for the hard alcohol aficionado on the go…
