Frenetically we race against clocks: clocks demarcating time, deadlines, and necessary markers in our existence. Nothing reaffirms this more than the construct of the “work week." Battling the exasperation, disillusion, and general listlessness inherited by the “Americana Proletarian Dream”—one must salvage sanity when they can. One must make a concentrated effort to forcibly infuse joviality into the miasma of the week. Every day the options are ripe with enticing avenues for exploration and cultural growth—one need merely seize desire and reroute the inevitable doldrums towards more sunny horizons.
In that light, here is the daily panacea of whimsy, decadence, and escapism—guaranteed to ward off the corrosive taint of obligatory responsibility one day at a time!
When: Monday, March 26: 10pm-2am
Where: Bar 13
Commence the week with a deluge of bass reverberating throughout your sternum. Lose yourself in the beats at Monday night’s best dub spot, Bar 13’s “Dubday Monday." This weekly fiesta touts quality spin-smiths Crisis Kid, Boogie Boy K, and Dru Klein (to name a few). Start the week off right, make it a dub night!
Shakers & Stirrers
When: Tuesday, March 27: 6pm-12pm
Not every evening out is required to be a salacious study in bacchanal and carnal dynamism (though it’s infinitely more fun if it is). For those inclined to remain productive in their nightly sojourns, the “Shakers & Stirrers” networking gathering at O’Briens is an acceptable alternative. $15 nabs you a ticket, complimentary chow, drink specials, and naturally, the opportunity to interact and expand within the real “social network!"
When: Wednesday, March 28: 5pm-11pm
Where: Home Restaurant
For those not in the know, flights are a nifty creation allowing one to sample a diverse array of wine/beer in moderate portion sizes. Over at the cozy Home Restaurant, they’re offering two quality options for you Wednesday evening: 1) a wine flight and 4-course food pairing ($55), or 2) Solely the flight ($25). Whichever way your destiny unfolds, may Wednesday bring the Dionysian joys of quality food and drink—reserve your place here!
Cocktails under the Canopy
When: Thursday, March 29: 8pm-11pm
Where: Angel Orensanz Foundation
