Your Perks: 1) Up to 69% off Maceoo polos, blazers and button-downs. The French seem to be fond of them. 2) A revitalizing juice cleanse, because sometimes you’ve got to balance the bad with the good. 3) The workout clothes they’d use to exercise in space. Houston, we have a... high-performance shirt.
Things to do for February 13, 2015
New Wine, New Juice and a Hush Puppy Happy Hour
Laissez les bons temps weekend.
A Hush Puppy Happy Hour Exists Now
The Time: 3 to 6pm, Monday through Friday.
The Place: King + Duke.
The Request: A cocktail. Maybe some wine.
The Reception: That cocktail or wine you just ordered happens to be accompanied by gratis hush puppies with sweet chili jam.
The Takeaway: Every day should be hush puppy day.
New Wine Shop. Many Wines. That’s All.
Remember that time when there wasn’t a new wine shop on Ponce? If not, it was this past Monday, and all the other days before that. Because on Tuesday, Symposium Wines came to town with hundreds of their grapey, drinkable friends. Some are rare, some are less rare, but all are wine.
Delicious. But Also Kind Of Healthy.
You know the old saying: “When life hands you lemons, carrots, apples, a grapefruit and a wheelbarrow of kale, make juice.” That’s definitely the saying. And a new place called Veda Juice is helping you do that. They’ve also got salads and breakfast and stuff. Do whatever with that information.
There’s nothing like the feeling of grabbing your date and sneaking off behind a mausoleum. Just like in zero movies. But turns out, that’s not out of the question at this tour of Oakland Cemetery that focuses on the loves and losses of its most famous residents. Chocolates. Ha.
Mardi Gras Just Got a Lot More Cigar-y
Ah, Mardi Gras. It’s French for “Fat Tuesday.” But you knew that. And you’re about to know that Highland Cigar is celebrating it with passed appetizers, Mardi Gras–inspired drinks and a bunch of cigars. See, now you know.
