Things to do for March 06, 2014

The Weekender

Macaulay Culkin, Absinthe Massages and Cheese

Every story has a beginning, a middle and a weekend.

Thursday
The Absinthe Rubdown
ABSINTHE-MINDED

The Absinthe Rubdown

Crushed sugar cubes and absinthe make a fine aperitif. Or in this case, a massage. See, Hiatus is kneading such things (sugar, wormwood, anise) into your skin for 80 minutes and then serving you a postgame absinthe cocktail. Would be nice if more bartenders went that extra mile.

Cheese: The Club
WHEELS OF FORTUNE

Cheese: The Club

Mailing yourself a block of cheese is... rather unorthodox. But giving yourself the gift of monthly cheese selections curated by the guys at Scardello is... just good sense. So sign up for their new fromage-centric club, then expect a few wedges sent your way each month. We’d start stockpiling crackers now.

If Ever You Needed Juice
PRESSING NEEDS

If Ever You Needed Juice

Standing squarely between Mardi Gras and St. Patrick’s Day, it’s likely you’d benefit from something restorative. Hey, the just-opened Elixir Juice Bar could probably help. Because they’ve got cold-pressed juices, fruit smoothies and plenty of green drinks. No, we don’t mean dyed beer.

Saturday
Just You and Beer. All the Beer.
FREESTYLE TAP

Just You and Beer. All the Beer.

If things like 200-plus beers from 70-plus breweries interest you, then you should really check out the Untapped festival this weekend. But if two stages, eight bands and a bunch of food trucks interest you more, then you should... right, also check out Untapped this weekend. Decisions, decisions.

Wednesday
Hey, It’s the Kid from Home Alone
RETURN OF THE MAC

Hey, It’s the Kid from Home Alone

Turns out, Macaulay Culkin’s in a band. And that band is a pizza-themed Velvet Underground cover band (because of course it is). And they’re playing a show at Club Dada next week, which you’ll probably want to investigate. For several reasons. Pizza-themed band being one.
