The Weekender

Lady Arm Wrestlers, Truffle Beer and Regular Beer

Check with your doctor to make sure your heart is strong enough for weekend.

This Caviar Was Banned. Now It’s Back.
PERK ALERT

This Caviar Was Banned. Now It’s Back.

Your Perks: 1) Award-winning Russian black osetra caviar that was banned for the last 10 years. 2) Leather texting gloves that work with your phone in the cold. Finally. 3) A slim, lightweight portable phone charger so you never have to fight over outlets while traveling. Or at your family’s house during the holidays.

SUPPLY AND DEMAND

When NASA Meets Your... Work Shirt

Ministry of Supply is setting up a 10-day residency at theWit Hotel. In case you’re not familiar with the brand, think office-appropriate dapperness that uses some of the same materials that NASA uses in its space suits. Should probably hold up just fine in a budget meeting.

Small Bar Is Closing. But First, Beer.
BEERFUL GOODBYE

Small Bar Is Closing. But First, Beer.

It may be last call for Small Bar, that 10-year-old Division Street rare-beer pioneer, but it plans to dispose of as many kegs as it can before its final curtain call tonight. The rub: it could use your help. All rubs should be so rub-y.

Friday
This Lottery Involves Beer and Truffles
MOODY BREWS

This Lottery Involves Beer and Truffles

Good news: Moody Tongue is about to release its highly anticipated black-truffle-infused beer.
Bad news: It’s $120, and you have to enter a lottery to even have a chance at one of the 500 bottles.
Good news again: We hear everyone on your gift list loves hard-fought truffle beer.

Saturday
Easing You into Some Holiday Shopping
GIFT JUSTICE

Easing You into Some Holiday Shopping

Hotel Lincoln’s got a pop-up thing happening this weekend. It’s perfect if you know someone who’d soon like to unwrap vintage records (CHIRP will be there), quirky home things (Judy Maxwell Home will be there) or furniture (Modern Cooperative will be there). If that someone is you, try to act surprised.

The Lady Arm Wrestlers Will See You Now
IN ARM’S WAY

The Lady Arm Wrestlers Will See You Now

What can we tell you about lady arm wrestlers that you don’t already know? Perhaps nothing. Perhaps everything. Perhaps that they’re having a brawl this weekend. Perhaps that there will be a grilled cheese truck in attendance. Perhaps we had you at lady arm wrestlers.
