The Weekend Starts Here

Yeah, yeah, we know about Coachella. Here's what else to do this weekend.

Friday
Mixology 101
FRIDAY EVENING SPIRITS

Mixology 101

You make a killer martini, but with all due respect, your cosmos could use some work. At M101, you'll learn to blend classic cocktails like mojitos, margaritas and mint juleps—then drink them.

The so-called burger Nazi behind the sirloin masterpieces at Father's Office is reverting to his fine dining roots with a seven-course tasting menu. Just don't ask for any substitutions.

New Taco Tuesdays at the Spanish Kitchen

The SK's Taco Tuesdays are gaining momentum, and we think we know why: $2 lobster and shrimp tacos. And more than 80 tequilas. Ole.

Tuesday
A Taste of France
