Things to do for October 02, 2014
A Secret Bar, a Luau and Gratis Tacos
The power of weekend compels you.
Respice. They’re Having a Sale.
The cultural curators at Respice are doing the sale thing this weekend. They’re taking 30% off their clothes (think: Not Hatch), 20% off leather (think: Mimot and Steve Mono) and 15% off sunglasses (think: Wood and Etnia Barcelona). Like you can’t use a new pair of shades around here.
National Taco Day Is a Thing
Yep, another one of those “national holidays.” This time, it’s tacos. Anyway, good excuse to enjoy a
—Cantina La Veinte, with seven specialty tacos like beef tongue and bone marrow for $4.50 each.
—Jalapeño Mexican Kitchen, with up to five gratis tacos when you say “Happy Taco Day.” Yes, with a straight face.
Beer gardens. Gotta love ’em. Especially when they do things like pop up at the Ritz, chock-full of Wynwood Brewing beer and a special menu of brats, pretzels and Belgian beer cookies. Which, incidentally, go great with more beer.
7:06pm: Arrive at Edge’s rooftop luau.
7:07pm: Partake in one of two gratis rum punches.
8:00pm: Sample the roasted pork and Hawaiian-inspired sides from five local chefs.
8:45pm: Shut down the party with your patented hula dance. Or your patented “keep eating and drinking” dance.
This Bar Is Hidden in a Liquor Store
There’s a new bar in town... but only for one night. It’s called El Patio. Because, well, it’s on a patio. That’s hidden behind a liquor store. And they’ll be serving gratis scotch and rum cocktails there. Just letting you know.
