Things to do for August 29, 2013
Bourbon, Poker Nights and a Poolside Barbecue
It’s all fun and games until someone loses a weekend.
Blade Does the Omakase Thing
You know that saying: the greater the risk, the greater the sushi. Or something like that. Well, you’re about to put your life and hunger in the chef’s hands at Blade. See, they’re launching an eight-course omakase dinner. Just call 24 hours ahead of time. Hey, time is sashimi.
Poker Night and Beer at the DRB
Starting today, the DRB is hosting a weekly tournament-style poker night. The game: double stack, no-limit Texas Hold’em. The players: the finest card sharks from all corners of the city. You: keeping hydrated with specials on craft drafts. And playing poker. That, too.
Labor Day eve. Possibly even more important than Labor Day itself. Maybe. Either way, you should head to the Broken Shaker for a Bloody Mary throwdown they’re hosting by the pool. They’ll also be breaking out the grill and cooking up burgers and pulled-pork sandwiches. Because... Labor Day eve.
It’s Bourbon Month. You May Proceed.
1) This Sunday kicks off National Bourbon Heritage month. Adjust your calendar accordingly. Because, 2) Bourbon Steak is serving up 21-day-barrel-aged Vieux Carré cocktails and tableside flights of bourbon using stuff like Angel’s Envy and Michter’s. Oh, and 3) steak. They still have steak.
Eating House. Lunch. Finally.
Eating House has conducted some highly unscientific research and concluded this: you need more bulgogi pork in your life. Primarily during lunch. And they want to give you that. For lunch. Along with ham-and-pimentón sandwiches. And frozen dirt cups—that you can also take to go. Thanks, nonscience.
