Get thirsty. And hungry. Because you’re about to have a four-course dinner composed entirely of food-infused cocktails. You’re also getting a nice kickback on a miraculously portable bike and a five-course tasting menu paired with impossible-to-find vodkas. In short: get these Perks...
Things to do for September 05, 2013
Burlesque Olympics, Breakfast Tacos and Chuy
A funny thing happened on the way to the weekend.
Time for the Burlesque Olympics
Finally, the official season is under way. Oh, sure, football will be fine, too, but we were talking about the Burlympics. Yes, as in burlesque Olympics, happening this weekend. You’ll see girls with names like Scarlett Letter and Bianca Boom Boom compete in categories like “Master of Tassels.” Go for the gold, ladies...
Hollywood Tacos from Chuy Bravo
Ah, Hollywood. Sometimes you walk into some place you haven’t seen before and... why, yes, you are in a taco shop owned by Chelsea Handler’s sidekick, Chuy Bravo. Just don’t expect to see Chelsea there—not until Chuy gets his vodka license.
The Meatball Shop. At Sunny Spot.
Your last visit to Sunny Spot: a bit low on meatballs. Roy Choi would like to make sure that doesn’t happen on Saturday. The Meatball Shop will be visiting from NYC, so you can expect meatball heroes, meatball sliders and a surprise meatball from Choi himself. Guessing it’ll include meat.
Water Like You’ve Never Seen It
Water. It’s sort of important: occasionally you put some in your whiskey. Also, it’s super-crazy-looking when a guy named Moses Hacmon takes beautiful photos of its microscopic components in motion, then turns those photos into a Downtown gallery show at the Hub. You’ll probably need a drink.
Bludso’s Kicks Off Football Season
Football. Tacos. Beer. And that’s just breakfast. Yeah, Bludso’s is going big for football season—there’s a full day of games on six flat-screens this Sunday, and you should get there early for a breakfast taco stuffed with eggs, salsa and your choice of brisket, pulled pork or potatoes. Breakfast tacos, people.
