Your Perks: 1) 78% off Georges Rech polo shirts. Huge in France, bigger on Perks. 2) Six bottles of Château Montaud Côtes de Provence rosé. Which loosely translates to “summer’s ideal rosé.” 3) The kind of leather bag that’s practically begging to be taken on vacation. Begging.
Things to do for July 16, 2015
Bacon, Whiskey and a Chili Cook-Off
Weekend be nimble, Weekend be quick.
Whiskey Slushies. Bacon Bouquets. Fun.
Horsefeather Bar doesn’t exist yet. But its pop-up does. And here’s what’s inside:
Drinks: Weekly rotating slushies like the whiskey-and-black-tea Charlie Horse and the rum-pineapple-coconut Banana Hammock.
Food: The Bacon Bacon Truck’s doing bacon bouquets and Triple B tacos (bacon, pork shoulder and crispy belly).
In conclusion: drinks and food.
You could be many places this Friday at 3pm. Work, for instance. But you should probably be at this little wine-and-pizza thing at Lynmar Estate instead. They’re doing wood-fired pies made with chardonnay yeast and cooked in an oven fueled by pinot-aged oak-barrel staves. Wine-pizza > pizza.
Unionmade’s doing an up-to-40%-off thing, and a lot of nice stuff is involved: button-downs, varsity jackets, blazers, whatever else. Oh, you’re still here. Hi.
Much Chili Is Awaiting Your Judgment
After three long, sad, chili-free years, the Sutton Cellar Chili Cookoff is back. Six restaurants are in on it, including Magnolia, Smokestack and the defending champs at Comstock. So go. Drink rosé. Eat spicy food. Judge spicy food. Smile at birds. Hey, it’s your chili cook-off.

Soon, Chef Telmo of Tacolicious fame will open a new spot called Uma Casa. But for now, here’s a seven-course Portuguese petiscos dinner at the Tradesman. There will be cod cakes. There will be oxtail croquettes. There will be exactly five other things.
