Why would somebody want a briefcase (or weekender bag) made from waterproof fabric with leather handles? Because sometimes it rains when you’re heading into the office. And sometimes you just need to play hooky and take a spontaneous Wednesday morning trip to the beach.
Things to do for June 29, 2016
A Slip ’N Slide, a Fish Fry and a Patriotic Brunch Are Involved
Hot fun in the weekendtime.
A Summer Fish Fry of the Highest Order
Four things you should be thankful for:
1) Fried fish.
2) Unlimited New England clam chowder.
3) Bottomless Narragansett.
4) General summer cocktailing.
Coincidentally, all four can be found at Izzy’s Drinks Ahoy party tomorrow night. Sometimes we lie about things being coincidences.
Working Out and Drinking Like a Firefighter
Maybe you’ve worked out this week. Maybe not. Then again, maybe you were just waiting for a group of individuals called the Headstrong Heroes to randomly combine an alcohol-forward beverage called Fire Bowl Punch with a firefighter-style workout at the Wynwood Yard tomorrow evening. Either way, yeah. Happening.
Just an Exceptionally Patriotic Brunch
Icebox Cafe already has a brunch. Which is great. But for three days this long weekend, it’ll be a patriotic brunch. With red, white and blue pancakes, a rum-y Red, White and Blueberries cocktail and short rib benedicts. The short rib is what makes it patriotic.
This Is How You Pre-Fourth
The Confidante is celebrating the Fourth a day early with boozy snow cones, Talde’s burgers and kung pao chicken wings, a big Slip ’N Slide and a DJ. We’re only mentioning this because you’re going.
Two Ways to Properly Celebrate Your Independence
The beachside option: The Faena’s got the Spam Allstars to accompany your four-course asado feast with unlimited wine. They’ve also reserved a beach chair for you. The riverfront option: The River Yacht Club is opening its doors on a Monday for all your lobster-roll-eating, rosé-drinking and firework-watching needs. In conclusion: America.
