Your Perks: 1) Button-ups in so many summer colors and styles, it’ll make your head spin. In a good way. 2) Ultra-insulated flasks, koozies, wedge-shaped ice molds... Basically a bunch of things to keep your beverages chilled. Very important. 3) A contraption that turns alcohol into gas. Seeing is believing.
Things to do for June 11, 2015
Sushi, Soccer and Secret Dining
Buy low, sell weekend.
A New Secret Dinner Society. Sort Of.
You remember Dinner Lab. The members-only supper club hosting clandestine meals around town. Well, good news. They’ve chosen our fair city to launch gratis community memberships starting now for secret dinner situations being held this weekend. Expect smoked hanger steak and bacon powder in your future. The future’s pretty great.
Soccer and Empanadas. Clearly.
From now through July 4, all of Batch’s 14 TVs and projectors will be aligned under one mission—nonstop Copa América–ing. You’ll watch some futbol, eat a few $5 empanadas, partake in a $20 bucket of Tecate and maybe even bring back the vuvuzela. That last part was the joke.
There’s a New Sushi Situation Here
You’re in the Gables. And suddenly, a sushi craving hits. One that can only be abated by popcorn-lobster rolls. Made by an Argentine master chef. Oh, hey... here comes Obba. It’s a polished-looking spot with both of those things. And tomorrow night: gratis saketinis until 8. Craving abated.
When you walk into Hyde this Sunday, everyone will be dressed in black. All of the mirrors will be covered, too. Don’t panic. It’s for a new party they’re trying on called the “Blackout Sessions.” There’ll also be the requisite champagne spraying and 100-pound confetti drop, so you’ll be fine.
Nice Night for Some Kebabs
As if you needed another reason to spend a few hours with some bubbly on a Monday, Cleo’s doing a “dips and sips” thing on their outdoor patio this Monday—kebabs, dip platters, rosé and prosecco are all half off. Note: you’re not obligated to refer to it as “dips and sips.”
