Your Perks: 1) A concentrated blend of electrolytes that cures hangovers. This is important. 2) A handheld, portable espresso machine that requires zero electricity. 3) A build-your-own Bellini kit including four bottles of Collalbrigo prosecco, the same brand that was used in the original Bellini. Your brunch just got historical.
Things to do for July 02, 2014
Pork Belly Kebabs, Blazers and One Long Weekend
Land of the free, home of the weekend.
This Ice Cream Is 21+ Only
Evidence that change is, in fact, good: Frozen Pints just switched its name to the Ice Cream Bar to encompass its new line of alcohol-based ice creams (mojito sorbet, White Russian, bourbon butter pecan...), which have three shots in each pint. Don’t forget your ID.
The World Needed Another Delia’s
We’re heading into the kind of long weekend where you’ll probably need some meatball sliders and Cake Shakes at an ungodly hour. Good thing Delia’s just opened a bi-level second location on the Westside, with one of those levels being a repurposed shipping container. Meatballs and shipping containers somehow feels right.
Shirts. Blazers. Pants. Bravo for Sales.
The trick to this weekend: showing your patriotism without veering too far from your normal style. Related: Chrome Yellow is having its first online sale on things like indigo chinos, a navy blazer and a blue shirt with white stars on it. That one. Get that one.
Well, This Is New...
On the Fourth, you could go pretty much anywhere and find burgers and beer. Or you could go to Ration and Dram and find pork-belly-and-watermelon kebabs, rum-based tiki drinks and the World Cup quarterfinals being shown. We’re not saying one is the “right” way. And we’re not not.
The Bishop Is Opening During the Day
Up until this weekend, the Bishop has been dinner only. But since lunch is also a thing you need, they’ll open at noon with brunchy specials. Think shrimp and Creole pimento cheese grits served with eggs over easy and Bloodys. Also think, “Mmm.”
