Your Perks: 1) The same aviators worn by the Italian Air Force aerobatics team. Eye-catching. 2) More tank tops than we know what to do with. Seriously. Help. 3) One of these very rare, very vintage Omega watches. They move fast, if you can imagine.
Things to do for August 07, 2015
Two Patio Comebacks and a Little Whitewater Rafting
Anybody seen the weekend?
Two Blast-from-the-Past Patio Scenarios
Rio Bravo: It’s back (as “Ray’s Rio Bravo”) after a 13-year hiatus. Yep, still doing the Tex-Mex thing. Plus, there’s a patio.
Basil’s: Also back after a fire put things on hold nearly a year ago. Yep, still doing the tapas thing. And they also got the patio memo. Teamwork.
Raft a Little. Drink Beer a Little.
This is how dates happen: tomorrow, you’re driving down to Columbus with someone outdoorsy and special, spending a couple hours whitewater rafting, then listening to live music while drinking beer and eating cheesesteaks from a food truck. They happen other ways, too, but this way is best.
MF Sushi. They Do Lunch Now.
MF Sushi has your weekend plans covered. At least the lunch portion of them. They’re launching a new one with a handful of specials to choose from. They rotate often and there are zero substitutions. So if you say, “Substitutions, please,” they’ll say, “No.” Just clarifying.
This Music Fest Hasn’t Happened Before
The Masquerade is celebrating its 25-year anniversary by throwing you a brand-new, two-day music festival. Expect 60 different bands and a bunch of people acting like they’re at a music festival. The 60 bands feels like more of the takeaway here.
It seems Atlas is concerned about your midweek music-and-patio intake. So every Wednesday, you can now enjoy live music and a full menu on their terrace. Which means jazzy renditions of Coldplay and Stevie Wonder and truffle pierogi dumplings. And original-Picasso sightings because you’re still at Atlas.
