Things to do for March 20, 2014
One Complaints Choir, Two Del Toro Shoes and Four Wines
The weekend’s bracket is strong to very strong.
You’re Not Complaining, But...
You’ve never been one to complain. Here, let the Wolfsonian handle it. They’re bringing in the likes of Michael Chabon and Andy Borowitz for four days of conversations, movies and even a choir... all about the art of complaining. No weekend is complete without a complaints choir.
A Wine- and Cavalli-Heavy Dinner
Cavalli Miami: jaguar-print chairs, floral-patterned tablecloths, framed pictures of models. You: inside, enjoying a four-course dinner paired with Cavalli wines, hosted by an actual Cavalli. (It’s Tommaso, Roberto’s son.) This is your chance to convince him to adopt you into the family.
Well, WMC is upon us. From the ankles up, you’re ready. Below that... let’s just say Del Toro’s first-ever sample sale is happening at just the right time. They’ve got plenty of colorful exclusive shoes, good for the music crowd. Your plan is simple: dance until they fit.
A Saturday Brunch in Cecconi’s Garden
Waiting until Sunday for brunch: kind of pointless. Waste of a good Saturday. So yeah, Cecconi’s at Soho House has launched a new Saturday brunch in their garden—and when you finish sopping up the Porchetta Ham Benedict with your waffle, don’t be sad. You can come back tomorrow.
Time to Celebrate Swine, Then Eat Some
Hard to believe, but Swine is already turning one. And with typical Southern hospitality, they’re gifting you with $5 Swine Burgers (with patties of short rib, brisket and smoked pork) and $2 Old Fashioneds—because they don’t understand how birthdays work.
