Things to do for May 30, 2013
A New Patio, Gratis Oysters and Bartering for Art
Don’t worry, be weekendy.
Gratis Oysters on a Patio. Rejoice.
There’s a patio party this evening that could really set a nice tone for your weekend. It’s at the Big Ketch. You’ll drink a few Mexican beers, eat some gratis garlic-parm oysters and listen to live reggae music. Sets a nice Thursday tone, too.
Guy Wong Made You a Patio for Drinking
Miso Izakaya. Great ramen spot. And now: great patio cocktail spot. Mainly because Guy Wong just built a tiny new bamboo patio there that’s specifically engineered for your quaffing pleasure. Oh, and it’s not quite furnished yet. But it will be soon. You’ve been meaning to drink-stand more anyway.
Billy Reid, Candy and Sangria. Just...
Everyone prepares for the onslaught of summer differently. Some put on flip-flops. Others fill their stores with new Billy Reid Pensacola polos and double-layered Vince tees. And white peach sangria. And a bunch of candy, for some reason. 310 Rosemont is going the latter route. Funny. So are you.
Bartering for Art. It’s a Thing Now.
You have things, yet you need art. Artists have art, yet they need things. That’s the idea behind this little art soiree happening at dooGallery this weekend. You get to bring one item and attempt to trade it for art. If all else fails, money should work.
Foreign Bartenders Invade ESS
Miami. Charleston. New Orleans. All cities. Cities for sure. But apparently, they’re also all cities with bartenders who make mean Sazeracs and sidecars. So this Saturday, Empire State South is hosting a bunch of them (including Paul Calvert of... Decatur). They’ll make classic cocktails. You’ll drink them. It’s only polite.
