Things to do for June 25, 2015
Tacos, Lawn Games and a Luau
With the first pick in this year’s NBA draft, the Minnesota Timberwolves select... the weekend.
Time to Get in Shape
We believe Queen said it best: “I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike. I want to ride my bicycle that I got from Peloton, this new store that’s selling high-tech stationary bikes with built-in screens so you can livestream spin classes from home.” Great song.
This Way to the Tacos
Head to Main Street Garden on Saturday, and you’ll find tacos from 15 of the city’s best taquerias. Plus bands. Lots of bands. Beer and tequila, naturally, and also: some wrestling courtesy of masked luchadores. Try to stay out of their way.
A Backyard Party at Reunion Tower
There’s a new party in town, and it’s taking over the base of Reunion Tower. So much is happening. For
—Many food trucks (BellaTrino, Coolhaus).
—Lawn games like bocce and cornhole.
—Plenty of beer and wine.
Otherwise, it’s just a regular backyard get-together.
Sunday Is for Luaus and Pork
Luau. Just saying it conjures images of a hog roast and rum. It’s a good word. And this Sunday, it’s a word that applies to the Standard Pour, as they’ll have a band, a whole hog and plenty to drink. Finally, an appropriate time to break out your Hawaiian shirt.
Watching a Movie on Knife’s Patio
Here’s one of those outdoor movie screenings people like so much. It’s on Knife’s handsome patio. There you’ll eat food from John Tesar and drink beers from Four Corners. And you’ll watch Big Night, that 1996 restaurant classic with Tony Shalhoub and Stanley Tucci. Ah, so there’s a theme.
