Things to do for August 22, 2014
Adult Capri Suns and Alien on the Big Screen
This weekend may be recorded for quality assurance purposes.
An Epic Jam Session. With Rum.
Turns out, you’ve got backstage passes at the Fillmore on Saturday night. Because that’s where the Spam Allstars and Suénalo will be performing a benefit concert—and yes, there shall be local art by the likes of LEBO and an open rum/gin/vodka bar. Keep your rider reasonable.
Patpong Turns One. Here’s the Party.
Let’s say a certain red-lit, Bangkok-esque lounge turns one this weekend. And let’s say that said den celebrates with DJ-spun funk and gratis cocktails served up in pouches—sort of like spiked Capri Suns. We could keep saying things, but you should probably just swing by.
This Tuesday, O Cinema celebrates Alien’s 35th year of existence with a one-night-only screening. Wow. It’s not every day you experience warm feelings of nostalgia at the prospect of watching a hyperaggressive alien burst out of a man’s chest on an oversize projection screen.
What Else Is New
A Tale of Two Growlers
Right now: OTC has 32-ounce branded growlers available for your filling pleasure. You’ve
got 12 drafts at your disposal, including pours from Funky Buddha, Cigar City and Wynwood Brewing.
Next week: The Abbey will follow suit. Growlers are the sincerest form of flattery.
