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 03, 2014
Great Whites, Clambakes and Maradona
Social media tinkered with your weekend’s emotions.
Speaking of Fútbol...
Way before Messi, there was Diego Maradona—the Argentine soccer god best known for his controversial “Hand of God” goal in the ’86 World Cup (well, and for his next-level mullet). Anyway, the Hammer’s showing a doc about him. It’ll explain the goal. The mullet remains a mystery.
A Farmers’ Market. For Pot.
What you need to know about the city’s first medical marijuana farmers’ market:
1) There will be a lot of “farmers” selling “legal” cannabis there.
2) You have to be a “patient” to attend.
3) It will force us to use a lot of “air quotes.”
Your Garlic Knots: Elevated
Everything has to be American tomorrow. Even your pasta. Bucato knows this. So it’s changing its authentic Italian concept to an authentic Italian-American concept for the day. Meaning garlic knots, spaghetti and meatballs and so on. U-S-A... U-S-A...
There Are Clambakes, and Then There’s...
... this one Saturday at Cabana Restaurant, conveniently adjacent to the Four Seasons pool. You prefer a clambake with a view.
Vinyl Is Worshipped Here
The Fifth of July. Always overshadowed for some reason. Maybe because there isn’t normally a gratis Downtown concert with a bike valet, a vinyl swap meet, Stones Throw DJs like Peanut Butter Wolf and a break-dancing contest. We like your chances, by the way.
It’s No <em>Sharknado</em>, But.
You. A few bands. Some food trucks. The lawn of the Autry Center. Oh, and Jaws, on a giant screen. You’re gonna need a bigger blanket...
