Things to do for June 19, 2014
Frog Legs, DIY Bloody Marys and a Really Long Pool
Duck, duck, weekend.
The National’s New Pool Situation
205. You’ll want to remember that number before attempting any laps at the National’s pool. Because that’s how many feet of chlorinated waterway you’ll have to tread before you make it back to your lounge chair and gratis cocktail courtesy of their new pool pass. Doggy-paddle like you mean it.
Jersey Shore at Macchialina. Really.
Macchialina’s going full Jersey Shore on you. And for that, you can dubiously thank Rob Ferrara of Lure Fishbar. He’ll be taking over the bar for a night with some blue Long Island Iced Teas, ’90s hip-hop and... sausages. That sounded a lot better in our heads.
A Divorce Party at the Riviera
Look, best to not ask too many questions here. Okay, maybe one. Like, have you ever been attracted to a 42-year-old divorcée with a strong penchant for animal prints and Rum Baby Rum cocktails. If the answer is yes, then show up at the Riviera at 6pm. Godspeed.
Eggs in a Pizza Oven. Brilliant.
Saturday will be a big day for your mimosa-consumption stats. Because Love Is Blind has ventured into brunch territory. They’ve got pizza-oven-baked omelets, grilled-short-rib benedicts, a DIY Bloody Mary bar and, yep, 99-cent mimosas. Your bubbly-to-benedict ratio is looking solid.
The Hidden Kitchen’s celebrating their first anniversary. We know what you’re thinking—this calls for frog legs. Right. So they’ve invited the Dutch’s chef to pull together a Southern seafood feast with fried oysters, stone crab croquettes and crispy frog legs. Yep, still tastes like chicken.
