These flowers were grown on the side of a volcano. Some kind gentlemen hiked up and cut them so I could have a dozen delivered to you fresh in time for Mother’s Day. I mean, volcano flowers. What a world.
... is a thing you might write in your card.
Things to do for April 20, 2016
Chicken-and-Waffle Towers, a New Mezcaleria and Psychics in a Bar
Never trust a skinny weekend.
You May Drink All the Mezcal Now
Clandestino. With a name like that, you wouldn’t put it past them to secretly amass a bunch of small-batch mezcals, use them to quietly turn their back bar into a mezcaleria and hire a Mexican graffiti artist to paint a giant mural there. You’re so onto them.
Go to Makoto, Take Home Sake
Makoto’s making their own private-label sake now. In a brewery that was established in 1865 in Akita Prefecture, Japan, no less. Also, it pairs quite nicely with their robata grilled meats. And if you happen to not finish the bottle, you can take it home. But... come on.
An NYC Drinking Institution Takes South Beach
One of NYC’s finest houses of imbibery, Employees Only, will be taking over the Matador Bar tomorrow night with psychic readings, burlesque and just-magnificent cocktails. Which means that’s where you should be tomorrow night. Just wanted to make sure that part was clear.
Steel Drums. Sand. Full Moon. This.
There’s a full moon on Friday. Fun. And turns out, Hyde’s using it as an excuse to throw their first full moon party on the sand. Among those invited: a steel drum band, some spiced ginger mojitos, a few shrimp tacos and you. Good crowd.
When Bell Biv DeVoe Becomes Brunch
Dale Talde enjoys ’90s R&B. So he’s asked DJ Tom Laroc to spin some ’90s songs for his Bel Biv DeBrunch party this Saturday. Let that sink in. Bel Biv DeBrunch. Oh, and there’ll also be fried-chicken-and-waffle towers. Feel free to let that sink in, too.
