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
Secret Nightcaps and Opera at the Ballpark. Fourth On.
Fireworks watch the weekend.
Burritt Room and Wingtip Have a Secret
Wingtip’s lounge: Normally members-only.
Rules: Made to be broken.
Which is why: If you grab dinner and a drink at Burritt Room (specifically, the Wingtip Vieux Carré Me Away), an Uber car will whisk you away to Wingtip’s lounge all secret-like.
Password: Wingtip Vieux Carré Me Away.
You: See what they did there.
You know, it’s strange. Every time the fourth day of the seventh month of the year comes around, you feel like eating endless oysters and drinking IPAs before watching colorful explosions. We’ll never understand it. Looks like Bar Agricole’s patio does, though. Gold star for Bar Agricole’s patio.
Chin Up, the World Cup’s Not Over Yet
You beat us. Fine. Be that way. But you’ll never take away our right to watch the rest of the World Cup from the comfort of Radius’s new beer garden tables on their new 70-inch flat-screen. Or in their private Map Room. Those are ours.
In this corner: Quentin Tarantino. In the other corner: the Coen brothers. In every corner of Spoke Art: works from over 60 artists (paintings, sculptures, screen prints) reinterpreting their favorite scenes and characters from the three directors’ films. It’s called Quentin vs. Coen. That’s why we did the corners thing.
True or False: Opera and baseball go together.
Because of course they go together. At least they do when AT&T Park airs a simulcast of Verdi’s La Traviata on the video board this weekend. Yes, you can still get hot dogs. Because what’s opera without... ah, you get it.
