Your Perks: 1) Vintage Rolexes. Today is totally the day you take the plunge. 2) Cigars made from carefully aged Dominican tobacco. Your barbecues wouldn’t be the same without them. 3) Bold shirts and polos from a Milanese brand that’s achieved international acclaim. No big whoop.
Things to do for May 21, 2015
Whiskey, Margaritas and Thai Food
Late Show with David Weekend
Patrizio’s Is Back
Maybe you heard: Patrizio’s reopened in a new space on McKinney Ave. But now they’re grand opening, which signifies that something special must be taking place. Something like gratis passed hors d’oeuvres, half-price pizzas and plenty to drink. Yep, that qualifies.
Whiskey and Cigars at Rye 51
Rye 51 is hosting an event tonight. That’s nice. And here’s what you can do while there.
—Sample a new rye whiskey.
—Eat some barbecue.
—Smoke a cigar.
—Try on some pants.
If you’re going to be there anyway...
Celebrating Epocha’s First Birthday
It’s been one year since Epocha first graced Deep Ellum with its eclectic sneakers, T-shirts and records. And to celebrate, they’re gracing the Waas Gallery with some music, a fashion show, Irish whiskey and vodka. Lots of gracing going on.
Two Days of Thai Festing
Going to Thailand this weekend? Great. If not, this should do. It’s a Thai festival sporting 15 booths’ worth of spicy noodles, chicken satay and rice dishes. There’s a pop-up shop selling Thai goods, and there’s even muay Thai demonstrations. So bring a notepad.
So Many Margaritas Here
Should you find yourself in Bishop Arts on Sunday (and you really should), you’ll be in the right location to see the city’s finest margaritologists from 24 restaurants hard at work. Meanwhile, you’ll walk around and sample the Milagro-spiked beverages and vote for your favorite. Good thing Monday’s a holiday.
