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
Gratis Tacos, a David Lynch Cocktail Party and Art Smith’s New Thing
Weekend the Beautiful
If you’ve ever dreamed of drinking inside a David Lynch movie, well...
1) The Whistler is celebrating our strangest living surrealist tonight with Twin Peaks–themed cocktails (think coffee and cherry pie), a screening of some seminal scenes and a live David Lynch film cover band.
2) Huh. Weird dream.
The Summer Sale Your Summer Was Waiting For
You’re Taking: Yourself to some sort of Independence Day party this weekend.
Nøtre’s Taking: Up to 50% off some of their very stylish summertime gear, including chambray trucker jackets, fancy sneakers and indigo cotton work shirts.
We’re Taking: It that you see the connection there.
Fried-Chicken Benedicts and Ribeyes And...
This Friday marks the opening of chef Art Smith’s heirloom-y Blue Door Kitchen & Garden, located in the carriage house of the historic Biggs Mansion. Just imagine: Mediterranean lamb sandwiches for lunch. Braised short rib for dinner. Pimento cheese fried-chicken benedicts for brunch. Ain’t life grand.
Rojo Gusano Happened Again
We now live in a world where two of chef Dudley Nieto’s Rojo Gusanos exist. And to celebrate that fact, the new location is granting you one gratis taco, from a selection that includes Korean BBQ beef, green curry shrimp and everything you see in that photo. Strong start, new location.
An All-American Pig Roast in a West Town Beer Garden
What better way to celebrate this great nation of ours than at an all-American pig luau, in a beautiful beer garden, with bottomless smoked pork and a cocktail menu solely comprised of tiki drinks. Whatever you do, don’t say “my neighbor’s BBQ.”
