Your Perks: 1) Whiskey bullets and whiskey stones. Ice wishes it looked this good. 2) Boots that belong on your feet. See them and you’ll agree. 3) Minimalistic watches with sapphire-crystal faces and leather straps. Get one. It’s the right thing to do.
Things to do for March 02, 2016
Beer Cupcakes, Hammocks and a Late-Night Dinner Party
You get what you weekend for.
Tequila and Shoes Make Nice Bedfellows
Presumably you wear shoes. Therefore, it may interest you to know that Sabah, a purveyor of attractive Turkish leather slippers, will be hanging out in a cabana this weekend with beer, tequila and a few specimens from their new spring collection. And you’re invited. So, shoes it is.
Beer. Beer cupcakes. Beer-fueled music. All in all, pretty great components for a party. So head to Concrete Beach for the first birthday of their matriarch, Sola, and partake in some nitro-tapped beer, cupcakes infused with their brews and tarot card readings. Blindsided by tarot card readings again...
More Beer. This Time, with Hammocks.
Seems that the Four Seasons has freshened up its pool lounge, Bahia. Good excuse for a monthly local beer party where you’ll get access to some fine barbecue and their wading pool. You know, the one with hammocks strung between royal palms over the water. The good one.
After-Hours Dining with Michelle Bernstein
Here’s a timetable for the new late-night Off the Books dinner party at Seagrape:
10:30pm: Drinks and snacks at the 1930s House.
11:00pm: Dinner at Seagrape with Top Chef contestant Jeremy Ford and the Salty Donut guy. Some wine.
11:10pm: Offering Michelle Bernstein the bread basket.
Manners and such.
You’re Having the Empanada Benedict
The Restaurant at the Raleigh is launching a new weekend brunch with the standard bottomless mimosa and Bloody Mary thing. Which is nice and all. But allow us to also direct your attention to the El Cubano Benedict, which mercifully employs pulled-pork empanadas. What a magical time to be alive.
