Your Perks: 1) An umbrella that can resist gale-force winds. Though maybe you should just go inside if it comes to that. 2) Button-ups from the one and only Jared Lang. You like them. 3) A specially engraved bottle of Johnnie Walker Platinum. Say it with whiskey.
Things to do for August 27, 2015
Breakfast Calzones and a Pepperoni Mimosa
Yippee ki-yay, mother weekend.
A Sale on Summery Things
Because you sometimes wear short-sleeve button-downs, shorts, loafers and lightweight sport coats, you should know that Rye 51 is taking 50% to 80% off such things. So visit the store, take a look around and leave 50% to 80% more rakish than when you entered. Pretty sure that math is right.
Celebrating One Year of Ten50 BBQ
It seems like just yesterday that Ten50 first graced us with smoked meat. But Friday, it’s celebrating its first birthday with a big block party. There will be beer specials, live music, burnt ends and other meat products. In lieu of presents, get seconds.
This party is a very different kind of party. Because this party involves a DJ, drinks, belly dancers, discounted hookahs and an actual camel. It’s happening at Souk, which makes sense. Did we mention there’s a camel? Camel.
Brunching on Calzones and Mimosas
Consider the humble calzone. Then consider eating some this weekend at GAPCo. They’re serving brunch now, and with that comes three morning calzones filled with savory things like eggs, potatoes and sausage, and sweet things like berries and ricotta. Also, mimosas garnished with pepperoni. These guys get you.
Beer, Vendors and a Dumpster Pool
The Design District Market is back. Except this time, it’s taking place inside the cozy confines of the Community brewery. So you can expect beer. That much is certain. Also: vendors hawking local wares, food trucks and a dumpster pool. No diving.
