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
Really Spicy Beer, Unlimited Lamb and Hydraulic Tables
The weekend will put its hands up in the air when it’s damn good and ready.
Whole Hog Feasts in a Wine Cave
So you’re craving the steak tartare from Daniel Boulud’s DBGB Kitchen and Bar in NYC. Okay. Get a table in the wine cave at DB Bistro Moderne—the DBGB chefs have taken it over to re-create their famous whole hog feasts for a while. Hope you’re also craving hog.
Your Dinner, on a Hydraulic Table
The usual protocol: cocktails at the low table, then dinner at a dinner-height table. Sometimes you just want a martini and some country-fried quail without... moving. Enter Haven, and their new hydraulic tables. Just ask your server to raise the table when you’re ready for that quail. Okay then.
About That Scorpion-Pepper Beer...
Say you go to the Funky Buddha Brewery’s anniversary party, and you’re having trouble deciding between more than 40 brews on tap for the occasion. Just know that they’re launching a spicy new one with scorpion pepper in it. You’ll probably need another beer to wash it down.
Unlimited Lamb. At This Place.
You’ve always wondered how much Australian lamb you’re capable of eating in one evening. Hit the event called Lamb Down Under at Edge Steak & Bar, where five Miami chefs from joints like OTC and J&G Grill are offering unlimited lamb bites, and... well, you’ll have your answer.
Oh, Look, a Beautiful Sunday Pool Party
Well, it’s happened. After endless Sundays you’ve spent not being at a poolside cabana at the Delano for the legendary Privileged Sundays parties, Sundays during which you actually had time to read the sports section and stuff... well, Privileged Sundays is back. Sorry, sports section.
