Your rooftop pool plan at the Liaison: wake up early. (Stay with us.) Hit up the hotel’s 7:30am yoga class. Next, head into Art and Soul for breakfast. Then they’ll turn you loose at the rooftop pool all day. Which is a great place to grab a nap.
Things to do for June 26, 2013
A Week of Hot Dogs, Chicken and Donuts
The weekend always builds to a grand finale.
Polaroids Are Now a Thing. Again.
This weekend, you’re going to take a great photo. We can feel it. But rather than leave it imprisoned on your phone, take it to this new Union Station pop-up. You can instantly print it to look like a classic polaroid, or order prints on canvas or metal. Something lighter than lead, we’re guessing.
Soft-Serve Gelato: Almost Here
There’s a new ice cream delivery system in the offing—Dolcezza’s new soft-serve gelato. You’ll ask them to pull a cone of dulce de leche or blackberries and cream. Then you’ll take it over to the sundae bar where you can dip it in chocolate. It’s a chocolate delivery system, too.
Donut and Chicken Picnic Baskets
This is what Adams and Jefferson would have wanted—Astro’s fireworks-ready basket of fried chicken, potato salad, Asian slaw and a half-dozen special donuts, namely the chocolate Birthday Cake and the vanilla Firecracker. It’s actually what you want as well.
Bands and Dollar Dogs at Fairgrounds
Speaking of celebrating America, there’s a ball game at 11am, which means that Fairgrounds opens at 9am and is hosting four bands all day. Starting at 2pm, they’ll be turning out $1 dogs, peanuts and Cracker Jack all the way through the fireworks. You don’t care if you never get back.
