Father’s Day. Coming soon to... a father near you. Thankfully, we’ve put together some Perks for just the occasion. Plus, here’s some eye-catching liquor-related charts (all the whiskey, one chart) and a sleek charger that extends your phone’s battery life by a week. Or a really Instagram-heavy weekend.
Things to do for May 29, 2014
This Weekend, Everything’s Bottomless
The weekend has reset all its passwords.
Well, this gives “runner’s high” a new meaning: a half-marathon that starts and ends at a winery. You’ll get up early. You’ll start jogging through wine country. And the sooner you finish, the sooner you get to the morning-long wine-and-music festival. Which beats Gatorade every time.
A Flight of Five Pappys
You’ve made it all the way to summer. Congrats. Time to pat yourself on the back. This Saturday, Bourbon Glover Park is pouring five tastings of Pappy Van Winkle, from the 10-year-old all the way up to the coveted 23-year-old. We hear it tastes extra Pappy-ish.
You’ve always fancied yourself an adventurous eater. Time to test that. The Montana State Society is once again here with its fundraiser of country music, beer, Canadian whiskey... and Rocky Mountain oysters. Aka Montana’s answer to the spread in Temple of Doom. Aka bull testicles.
Boot Camp Brunch in Georgetown
Sausage-and-waffle sandwiches. Stuffed Texas toast. Endless cocktails. It’s all good. Especially if you’ve earned it with an hour-long boot camp. Every Sunday, the Ritz-Carlton Georgetown is hosting gratis boot camp classes in its courtyard. A nice segue to its jazz brunch. But maybe bring an extra shirt.
No, you don’t have Monday off again. Oh well. Don’t let that affect your Sunday afternoon. Acre 121 is pouring bottomless Abita on its patio, with live blues and all the ribs, brisket and pulled pork such a summer afternoon calls for. Yes, a lot.
