Your Perks: 1) A canvas Banksy print. Maybe you’ve heard of him? Makes infamous street art/holiday gifts. 2) An extremely intelligently designed umbrella. No shame in having an umbrella that’s smarter than you. 3) A slew of vintage Rolex and Cartier watches. Like, basically all of them.
Things to do for December 04, 2014
Elves, Whiskey and a Party 81 Years in the Making
The only stupid weekend is the one you don’t ask.
Little Shop Here with Wine and Stuff
5:50pm: You find yourself headed to some holiday-related function within the general
vicinity of Avondale Estates.
5:53pm: You realize you forgot the wine and fresh-cut filets. Also, you need a ham sandwich.
6pm: You arrive at this new place called the Market in Avondale and suddenly don’t need that stuff anymore.
A Party 81 Years in the Making
If this were an alternate universe where Prohibition had never been repealed, then: 1) There wouldn’t be a party happening at Bourbon Bar with a New Orleans jazz band, Lazy Guy Distillery’s new bourbon and a gratis champagne toast. 2) This would be a sad universe.
There’s This Little Football Game...
The key to tailgating properly: change of scenery. Enter this ACC Championship party at Red Brick. They’ll have indoor/outdoor viewing areas, cornhole, giant Jenga and lots of Red Brick beer. Not exactly a twist ending.
J.Hilburn in a Barbershop. After You.
Normally, you’d go to 18/8 to get your hair cut. But Sunday, you’re going to consume cheese and red wine. You’re also going because the J.Hilburn people will be there with cashmere sweaters, ties, cufflinks and fabric swatches to inspire your made-to-measure shirt decisions. Then a haircut.
If You Must Holiday Shop, This Is How
Here’s an extremely painless way for you to knock out about 92.5% of your gift shopping at once. It’s called “go to this event at Shops Around Lenox, taste some whiskey, talk to an elf, grab a personal shopper, have them do the work and that’s it.”
