Things to do for November 21, 2013
Bourbon, Poolside Beer and Roast Pig for Days
The weekend has all its turduckens in a row.
A New Jazz Lounge Lands in SoBe
Three steps to impressing your date at the new jazz-and-blues lounge that’s opened up in South
Step 1: Reserve a table.
Step 2: Note the subtle differences between cool and modal jazz.
Step 3: Play the hell out of a jazz flute up on stage.
The book fair’s back. And this year, your friends at Bookleggers are bringing their roving library to Bardot for happy hour. Afterward, you can catch a local version of Literary Death Match and watch as four writers read their stories in a battle of intense wordplay. May the best syntax win.
Poolside Beers and Roast Pig. Nice.
We’re going to go out on a limb here and say that you could go for some pork. The kind that’s slow-roasted for hours. Begging to be enjoyed by a pool. With some beer. And bathing-suited persons of interest. Just call it a hunch.
Look, truth is, turkey’ll be dominating your life next week. You’re going to need a palate intervention beforehand. And if that means hunkering down with pork dishes from six local chefs (think: Giorgio Rapicavoli, Brad Kilgore, Jeremiah Bullfrog) and a bunch of cocktails, well, you’ve done far more for less.
Listening to Music. Drinking Bourbon.
Blues and bourbon. Classic marriage, those two. Seems only right that you honor their blessed union. So starting this Monday, you can swing by Swine, order up one of their bourbon cocktails on special and take in some live blues performances at the same time. You’re good like that.
