Your Perks: 1) A guitar signed by the Stones or the Boss or the... Van Halen. You want. 2) A three-piece hard-shell luggage set that’s practically begging to be taken on vacation. 3) Gallery-worthy canvas prints of some seriously unique artwork. Your walls are ready to make a statement.
Things to do for March 12, 2015
Coffee, Beer and Probably Too Much Pork
And Toward Your West, a Gallery Opening
Your date on Friday involves a gallery opening from artist Ryan Coleman, who’s worked with Jeff Koons (yes, the big balloon-animal sculpture guy). You’ll gaze upon his paintings with some gratis beer and wine and whisper to your date, “You know, he’s worked with Jeff Koons.” Don’t whisper that.
Pop-Up Hot Dogs at Krog Street. Neat.
“To be frank, these hot dogs are delicious” is a regrettable and accurate pun you’ll be making this weekend after visiting the Doggy Dogg pop-up at the Spotted Trotter. There’ll be hot dogs galore, Spotted Trotter bratwurst and add-ons like housemade sauerkraut and kimchi. Just like your childhood kimchi dogs.
Pretty Good Timing, New Fadó
Fadó is about to have a new Midtown location. We don’t need to tell you that this is a home run selection for any forthcoming Irish holidays. But we are. And it is. Mostly because beer, whiskey and honey-chipotle shrimp tacos will be involved. Ah, the Irish and their tacos.
The Old Fourth Ward Has Some New Coffee
Condesa Coffee’s new Auburn Avenue location is happening soon. Which means they’re forcing you to choose where to enjoy Counter Culture espresso and bagels with Atlantic smoked salmon lox. Tough choice. Let’s break, grab some coffee and bagels, and revisit this in a few.
Kevin Gillespie’s Book. Also, a Party.
Kevin Gillespie. The Pied Piper of Pork. The Sultan of Swine. The Emper... too much. Anyway, the man behind Gunshow is throwing a release party for his new book called Pure Pork Awesomeness. Reserve your space and enjoy things like Korean barbecued bulgogi and buffalo pork wings. And a book.
