Your Perks: 1) A Moroccan-goatskin-leather bag. No two are alike. How very snowflake of them. 2) Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne 2005 in a personally engraved box. Choose your words carefully. 3) Designer sunglasses from Alexander McQueen, Givenchy, Balmain... The list goes on and on.
Things to do for August 13, 2015
Taprooms, Tasting Rooms and Lobsters
What weekend through yonder window breaks.
60% Off Summer Stuff at Avenue Jack
Boots. Wool. Whoa, not so fast. Not when Avenue Jack is unloading shorts, tees, swim trunks and summer shoes from the likes of Penguin, Ben Sherman and Lacoste. This world isn’t done with your skin just yet.
Two New Beer Road Trips
Time to hit the road like Kerouac. Or Hunter S. Thompson. Okay, maybe not like that, but there will be beer involved. Because BadWolf, a formerly tiny operation, has now expanded to a huge warehouse. And then there’s Ornery, a brewery/taproom/pub due south in Woodbridge. Agreeable people are still welcome.
We’ve got normal trade relations with Cuba again. And just like that, look, a rooftop party at Del Campo. They’re rolling out Hemingway daiquiris, Cubano sandwiches and ropa vieja over a salsa soundtrack. Afterward, head down to the patio for some late-night cigars. Tell them Hyman Roth sent you.
Four Hours of BBQ, Oysters and Beer
In four hours on Sunday, you could re-watch half of True Detective (and still not figure it out). Or you could wend your way through bottomless oysters, ribs, fried chicken, Flying Dog beers, boozy flavor ice and margarita-filled watermelons. Yep, better option.
Lobster and Beer for a Jackson
Lobster. Beer. On the waterfront. Sounds like a late-August thing to do. Even if you’re not in Martha’s Vineyard. On Mondays, Tony and Joe’s is letting you have a lobster and a beer at the bar for 20 bucks. This seems like a fair transaction to us.
