Things to do for February 13, 2014
Street Art, Lobster Paella and a Week’s Worth of Whiskey
And the man in the back said everyone attack and it turned into a weekend blitz.
Rick Owens Does the Design District
Say you’re in the market for a $53,925 alligator-leather jacket. First, that’s... specific. Second, you’re in luck: Rick Owens has opened up shop in the Design District. The spot is stocked with his men’s runway collection along with curated selections of his favorite DVDs and books. Spoiler: Judy Blume didn’t make the cut.
Valentine’s-ing in a Museum
Valentine’s and museums. A winning combo since... well, right now. That’s because tonight’s Paper Hearts exhibit has food and cocktails from local restaurants, a live performance by Afrobeta and DJ Hottpants spinning some slow jams. Oh, and apparently art. There’s art.
Art. You can find it in just about anything. Good art, well, that’s tougher. But this street-art exhibit/auction at LMNT has the latter covered. You’ll find stuff by Basquiat. Keith Haring. And two Banksy pieces that’ll be up for bid starting at $500,000. Note: bring a bunch of money.
What happens when you throw together a bunch of whiskey tastings (stuff like Michter’s, Hibiki, Basil Hayden’s) with tippling pointers from whiskey distillers and the unveiling/tasting of a 30-day-barrel-aged Monkey Shoulder Rusty Nails cocktail into eight glorious days? Your best week ever.
Bulla Has a Paella Night Now
Tuesday nights, Bulla Gastrobar will be dishing up a bunch of paellas. Some’ll have lobster, others vermicelli, and one comes with squid ink and octopus. So the logical thing to do here is to find someone who’s into paella and sangria and bring them along. And eat it. Because, logic.
