Things to do for February 20, 2014
Bourbon Slushies, Ping-Pong and a New Pop-Up Bar
Say you, say the weekend. Say it together, naturally.
It’s getting pretty warm outside. You should pencil in some pool time. Preferably at South Shore. Especially if you like Dark and Stormy slushies. Bourbon Arnold Palmer slushies. Gin Strawberry Fields slushies. They’re from NYC’s Kelvin Natural Slush Co. truck. And from 2 to 3pm, they’re free. If that’s okay with you.
So you’ve been watching the Olympics. And you’re feeling... competitive. Well, sorry. No slaloms here. But Shake Shack’s launching their first table tennis tournament tonight. They’ll bring the paddles, balls and a professional-grade table. You bring your A game to one of their 16 competitive slots. Some cheerleaders would be a nice touch.
NYC cocktailery The Dead Rabbit is making itself at home inside Patpong Road for a couple of nights. What that means for you: historically accurate cocktails from the 19th century made by co-owner Jack McGarry. So to recap: you’ll be drinking. If that wasn’t already clear.
Take a symphonic hall, turn it into a strobe-light-crazed club, toss in some string players and an ultra-seasoned DJ, and pack it full of a dance-friendly crowd wearing only white. You know what—never mind. The New World Symphony’s taking care of all that. So... go.
Fact: Miami is being overrun by a ginormous food festival this weekend.
Problem: You... sort of forgot to buy tickets. Also: Andrew Zimmern fatigue.
Solution: This Saturday, the Moore Building will play host to over 20 local restaurants (think: City Hall and Red, the Steakhouse) and DJ Irie. Also: limitless booze. That’s a number you can work with.
