Things to do for February 27, 2014
Your Weekend: The Dude, the Oscars and Beaver Sausage
The weekend just needs to freshen up for a second.
Buying Citronelle’s Wine Cellar
Since Citronelle closed, it’s been tough to find lobster and poached eggs disguised as caviar in this town. Too bad. But at least you can get the wines you might have paired them with. Schneider’s has scooped up the restaurant’s whole 4,000-bottle collection. You’re going to need a sommelier at home.
It’s an entire movie theater gone Dude. Think Dude-themed playlists, Dude-themed cocktails (so, White Russians), Lebowski trivia and costume contests. Oh yeah, then they’ll show the movie. Then you’ll probably hit a bowling alley.
Bottomless Sangria for the Oscars
No, Javier Bardem is not up for any Oscars this year. Might as well do them Spanish-style anyway. You know, because of the unlimited tapas like lamb meatballs, mussels and churros, and bottomless sangria, beer and cava at Boqueria. It’s your own lifetime achievement award.
Beaver and Muskrat: Now on the Menu
You’ve tried ostrich. You’ve had rattlesnake. Now it’s time for some small, woodland varmints. Rocklands kicks off its annual Grills Gone Wild week on Monday, which means beaver-sausage sandwiches; grilled lizards, gizzards and hearts; and muskrat Brunswick stew. Just like Mom used to make.
Like St. Patrick’s Day in Kentucky
This St. Patrick’s Day, you’re planning to drink whiskey. That’s a given. But maybe not five vintages of Pappy Van Winkle, each paired with a course in Bourbon Steak’s private dining room. Authentically Irish, no. An upgrade from green beer, yes.
