Your Perks: 1) Up to 53% off any number of shirts, blazers and ties from Descendant of Thieves. They specialize in handsome. 2) Moscow Mule mugs made from 100% copper. It’s so metal of you. 3) A portable, digital guitar. 2015 is the year you teach yourself to play.
Things to do for February 05, 2015
Bluegrass, Samba and a 1,000-Pound Pie
Expect light snow and a weekendry mix.
1,000 Pounds of Gratis Key Lime Pie
If you have any work meetings this afternoon, go ahead and cancel those. If anyone asks, tell them a nine-foot-wide, half-ton key lime pie is about to be sliced and distributed free of charge at South Station. Good excuse as any.
Take a look outside and you may say to yourself, “You know, I wish NRO Sport would take up to 75% off a wide variety of winter gear like ski gloves from Hestra and outerwear from Patagonia, Kjus and Dale of Norway.” You should talk to yourself more often.
Tomorrow, the ICA celebrates Carnaval. They can’t import Rio’s weather, but they can bring a Brazilian artist and her exhibit focusing on Brazil’s past, present and future, plus caipirinhas, a local troupe of samba dancers and a five-hour dance party. It’s Brazil-themed, in case you didn’t catch that.
Couple Vital Brunch Updates Here
If you thought your eggs benedict needed more twang: Beat Brasserie is correcting that with
live bluegrass every Saturday during brunch.
If you thought Belly needed a brunch: That’s happening for the first time, with all the beignets and chicken-fried steak you always imagined it would. Now go eat it instead.
Salsa Dancing in a Rock-Climbing Gym
Most nights, Brooklyn Boulders is a legitimate rock-climbing establishment. But Sunday night, it becomes a front for salsa dancing. You’ll receive a lesson, followed by over three hours of DJ’d dancing, salsa performances and beer from Aeronaut. You can climb rocks another day.
