’Tis the season for Perks: 1) Sharp bicycles in limited-edition colors from California. 2) The sleek phone cases you need to conquer battery-life anxiety. 3) 25% off chocolates spiked with eggnog, scotch and rum. (Hey, anything to help you endure the holiday season.)
Things to do for December 05, 2013
Home Alone, Curling and Five-Cent Cocktails
All right, stop, collaborate and weekend.
Lakewood Has More Burgers Now
If you’ve consumed a burger sometime between 1981 and today, chances are you’ve eaten at Chip’s. If you haven’t, maybe it’s because you live in Lakewood and have been waiting patiently for one to open nearby. Well, that day has come. Time to shine.
The 80th Anniversary of Legal Hooch
There’s just nothing like the holiday... Yep, singular. Because we’re talking about the most important holiday of all: Repeal Day. So tonight, commemorate the occasion with 80-cent classics (gin slings, Sazeracs) at Victor Tangos, or head north for five-cent cocktails at Whiskey Cake. You can spare a nickel for that.
Sunset Lounge Throws Itself a Party
This Friday marks the one-year anniversary of Sunset Lounge. Which marks the one-year anniversary of chicken tinga tacos and rum-heavy zombies. Which... is something worth celebrating. So head over for tiki drink specials, a DJ and all the tacos you can handle. We’re betting it’s more than one.
Negligent families, comedic violence and pizza. It’s what the holidays are all about. So celebrate all three at Alamo Drafthouse as they break out the “whole cheese pizzas” and subtitles for this Home Alone quote-along. “Keep the change, ya filthy animal.”
Training for Sochi... at Klyde Warren
The 2014 Road to Sochi Tour is swinging through town this weekend, and they’re setting up shop in the park. In this case, shop means a makeshift curling sheet, virtual snowboarding and radar guns to clock your slap shot. The Russian judge is not impressed.
