The Perks of summer: 1) 30% off dapper sneakers (the kinds you can wear sans socks) from Amsterdam Shoe Co. 2) Ultra-lightweight hammocks that feel like cozy kangaroo pouches. 3) A no-electricity-required bamboo amplifier for your smartphone. Bring it wherever summer takes you...
Things to do for June 12, 2014
Ping-Pong. Growler Delivery. It’s a Weekend.
The weekend is focused on Ghana.
Summer’s not over. Not by a long shot. Convenient then that Billy Reid’s summer sale is already on. Most of their made-in-the-USA jackets and suits are 40% off, and you can take 30% to 50% off work shirts, polos and henleys. For your office’s collarless Fridays.
Here’s Five Different Kinds of Wagyu
We’re guessing that you like steak. We’re also guessing that you might like some of the world’s best steaks, lined up in front of you. We’d guess such a lineup might include some A5 filet mignon from Japan, some 100-day dry-aged American Wagyu and sides like bone marrow. BLT Steak guessed the same thing.
Growlers That Come to You
Good news: Instacart, the new grocery delivery service, has now added Magruder’s. Better news: this also means wine, spirits and beer delivery. And on that last one: they’ll have a growler filled with a different beer each week, ready to go to you. Growler emergencies can sneak up on you.
Your Friday agenda downtown: grab lunch from a food truck. Then dominate. The Golden Triangle BID is hosting team ping-pong challenges in Farragut Square on summer Fridays, with referees... and all the social media bragging rights you’ve got in you.
A Machete May Be Involved
The head bartender at the Donovan House rooftop has a machete, which he’ll be using to crack coconuts and make coconut smoothies with Asian spices, rum and maybe an exotic Asian fruit or two. But it also means you should probably tip well.
