Things to do for March 06, 2014
Macaulay Culkin, Absinthe Massages and Cheese
Every story has a beginning, a middle and a weekend.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
