Things to do for July 11, 2013
Drive-In Movies and French Maids. It’s the Weekend.
You can reach the weekend at its summer house.
50-Cent Wings and Eggs at the Coupe
Now and again, a happy hour comes along that’s tough to ignore. Like this one at the Coupe—50-cent sriracha wings, deviled eggs and stuffed dates with ham, backed with $3 Natty Bohs, $4 rum punch and $5 wine. Oh, and it lasts until 8. That’s a lot of wings.
Rock Concerts. At the Lincoln. Soon.
Your number of historic concert venues just increased by one, as the city hands over the keys to the Lincoln Theatre to the folks behind 9:30 Club. On tap for fall shows: Neko Case, Laura Marling, Matt Nathanson and KT Tunstall. Lincoln would’ve loved KT Tunstall.
Union Market: Now a Movie Screen
In the past, you had to go to Baltimore for a drive-in movie. Now, you can go to Union Market, which is turning its three-story wall into a big screen. Park your car, or just walk up and picnic on the vendors’ wares before the flick starts. First up: Dr. Strangelove.
After last weekend, you’re looking for other countries to celebrate. Here’s one. And this celebration has French maids racing around. There will also be: food trucks, DJs, five street bars... and Marie Antoinette. Hopefully one of those trucks is serving cake.
Minibar Goes Even Bigger Ticket
José Andrés is doubling down on the whole Minibar thing. Now he’s got a private chef’s table behind a white curtain, where you’ll get 25 courses with beverage pairings. You just need to gather up five friends. And $3,000. Yep, that’s all.
