Things to do for December 19, 2013

The Weekender

Whiskey Ice Sculptures and Naked Nutcracker. Enjoy.

O Holy Weekend

Thursday
The Truffle Pig Cocktail at FT33
SHROOM TO SPARE

The Truffle Pig Cocktail at FT33

Eating mushrooms... still a viable thing to do. But now you can drink them, because FT33 is pouring an earthy concoction that mixes tequila with cinnamon, lemon, chanterelle mushrooms and maitake mushrooms. Cocktail. Side dish. Same thing.

Available now at FT33, 1617 Hi Line Dr, Ste 250, 214-741-2629

Incoming: New Lunch Options
CALL IT A LUNCH

Incoming: New Lunch Options

Lunch is important. It’s what gets you from breakfast to dinner and passes time during work. So you’ll be glad to know that Tanoshii and the Rustic are now feeding you during daylight hours. Grab some ramen at the former. Pork ribs at the latter. And beers at both.

Go Put On a Sweater. No, an Ugly One.
SWEATER EQUITY

Go Put On a Sweater. No, an Ugly One.

Start digging through your closet now, because somewhere, there’s an ugly Christmas sweater. And you’re required to wear it tonight at Cosmo’s. A $25 donation gets you beer, wine and snacks, with the proceeds going to a good cause. No, not new sweaters.

Saturday
A Burlesque Ballet at Trees
NUT JOB

A Burlesque Ballet at Trees

You know The Nutcracker. That old Russian ballet full of sugar plum fairies that’s always playing somewhere this time of year. Well, this is that, except it’s the burlesque version and therefore it’s 93% unencumbered by clothes. Which, creatively speaking, seems like a smart decision on behalf of the director.

Monday
Whiskey with Ice Sculptures
ROCKS OUT

Whiskey with Ice Sculptures

On Monday, things are happening at the Libertine. Things like Justin Holt (Driftwood) stopping by to make you ramen while a couple of blade-wielding barkeeps carve mini ice sculptures for chilling your Japanese whiskey. So... scotch on a swan, please.
