Things to do for February 06, 2014
Beaches, the Olympics and the Beatles
The weekend will carry the torch.
An Evening of Gin, a Lifetime of Gin
Fun news: the cocktail gurus at Wisdom are starting a gin club with their 70-plus gins. This will inevitably encourage you to try more gin. Starting tonight, when they’ll be pouring gratis tastes from eight distilleries, and giving you deals on gin cocktails. Consider it the fraternity rush of the gin club.
Surf’s Up at Tryst
Time to think warm thoughts. Beachy thoughts. Well, Tryst has just launched a theme for every night of the week, and Thursday brings $9 mai tais, $24 volcano bowls and classic beach and surf movies on the TVs. Not sure if Point Break counts.
Everything’s Coming Up Russian
Time to turn your attention to obscure snowy sports. And vodka. Show up at Mari Vanna, downtown’s outpost of Russian-ness, and get a free shot of infused vodka, gratis pirozhki (meat pies) and Olympics coverage on their flat-screens. To keep tabs on your luge fantasy team.
It’s Monday. It’s happy hour. You want something straightforward and simple. Like dollar oysters. Enter Meridian Pint’s new happy hour. Local oysters for a buck. Isn’t that easy... Or grab a half dozen and a pint of Irish stout for $10. Easier.
And now, some quick Beatles trivia: the band played its first US concert 50 years ago Tuesday, just north of Union Station. And some enterprising folks (okay, developers) are having a Beatles tribute band reenact the show to the exact moment. Try to keep the shrieking to a minimum.
