$1 Oysters and All the Lolla Madness You Can Handle
Remember to drink lots of weekend.
We don’t know if you’re just being modest or what, but your kneecaps... well, they’re great. So set them free already. It’s summer. Hey, maybe you just need an incentive. Consider this half-off sale on shorts from the likes of Engineered Garments and Battenwear a sign from the universe.
Your Post-Lolla 4am Tacos Fix
Before heading home from Lolla, maybe you want a few more things. Perhaps a DJ set from Ryan Cabrera, tacos until 4am and margaritas that require four straws because they’re 56 ounces. This after-party at Ay Chiwowa may be what you’re looking for. Yeah, it’s definitely what you’re looking for.
But eventually, you’ll head back to Lolla. And you’ll need something to get your head right again. Something like guacamole and more tacos at Mercadito. They’ve taken the liberty of putting together some hangover-specific menu options for you and your group. This is never going to end, is it...
A Battle Fought with Beer and Barbecue
The presence of your discerning eye on all things beer and BBQ is requested at this battle of 10 local brewers (DryHop, Half Acre, Haymarket...) who will pair their beers with various pork dishes. It’s up to you to decide which one is the best. Be gentle.
$1 Oysters at Hugo’s Makes a Soul Happy
Tuesday is National Oyster Day. Aka the godfather of all fake holidays. You should probably make plans to pull up a seat at Hugo’s and order a bunch of $1 oysters to celebrate. On the half shell. Fried. Rockefellered. Doesn’t matter. What does: bringing a lot of singles.
