Your Perks: 1) A new pair of summer sunglasses. They’re 100% handmade and 20% off. 2) Portable battery cases and packs to keep your phone charged for twice as long. Because it’s a marathon... 3) Smokeless fireplaces and mini waterfalls. Also known as the world’s most interesting office decor.
Things to do for June 05, 2014
Hopdoddy, Martini Carts and Betting the Ponies
To err is human; to weekend, divine.
Two Times the Hopdoddy
Thank you for your Terlingua burger topped with chili and Fritos. Thank you for your truffle fries and that Nutella-and-chocolate-pretzel milkshake. Thank you for the beers. But most of all, thank you for opening a second location on McKinney Ave. That was thoughtful.
Saving 30% to 50% at Hadleigh’s
Not that you need a reason to drape yourself in fine things from Hadleigh’s, but... 30% to 50% off their spring collection is a fine reason. We’re talking lightweight sport coats, button-downs and other items that go nicely with both. Shoes come to mind.
New Chef. New Look. New LTO.
Kitchen LTO is doing it again. That thing where it closes, tweaks the interior and then relaunches with a new chef and a new menu. That chef: Brooke Egger. That menu: dishes like bison tartare, an 18-ounce porterhouse and a sweet tea Cornish hen. “One hen, two straws, please.”
Three-Martini Lunching at Oak
Good news: Friday lunches have returned to Oak. Better news: they’re now paired with a rolling martini cart. So summon it over for a choice of three martinis (one classic and two not classic), then watch as your drink is prepared tableside. Then take the rest of the afternoon off.
The Belmont Stakes is Saturday. It’s in New York. That’s not close to here. But you know what is: Lone Star Park. And they’re broadcasting the Stakes live at the park, plus hosting a full day of races, wagering and cold-beer-related activities. Drinking them, mostly.
