Your Perks: 1) Tin after tin of delicious, sustainably sourced Italian caviar. Commence the dinner partying. 2) Pens and watches that are better than all other pens and watches because they’re Versace. 3) Really comfortable workout clothes. Actual working out optional.
Things to do for May 28, 2015
Patriotic Burlesque, Cigar Rollers and Tony Montana
The weekend is about to get real.
Billy Reid, Minus 50%
Fortunately for you, summer for the fashion industry doesn’t last as long as actual summer. Which is why Billy Reid’s already knocking up to 50% off polos, khakis, Italian-linen pants and soft cotton henleys.
Patriotic Burlesque on the W Rooftop
And now, for some Memorial Day nostalgia. In the form of four highly accomplished disrobing dancers, who will take to the stage for two shows at the W’s rooftop lounge. A portion of the proceeds benefits returning troops. The whole thing benefits you.
An Asian-Inspired Night Market in SW
This Asian-night-market thing is catching on. Here’s one at the Southwest Waterfront. You’ll visit a beer garden. You’ll check out 30 local merchants. You’ll get food from Asian food trucks. You’ll see artists doing live painting. You’ll let a cigar roller... roll a cigar for you.
A Rooftop with Pork and Scarface Attire
Call it a Cochon 555 encore: Del Campo chef Victor Albisu is reprising his performance from the annual porky event on the restaurant’s rarely utilized rooftop. Suggested attire is Scarface casual, so wear your best Tony Montana ruffled shirt. You probably won’t care if you spill pork on it.
This little excursion has you heading up to the Savage River in Western Maryland. You’ll get a life vest, a helmet, a wetsuit and a paddle. Meanwhile, some folks are opening the dam upstream. The result: five miles of continuous Class III to Class IV rapids. And a BBQ cookout after you survive it.
