If you are like us, you’ll spend the first weekend of 2016 with Hulu and Vietnamese take-out. But if you are way cooler than that, here are some fun ways to extend all the reveling.
Friday, January 1
New Year’s Day has been appropriately declared National Bloody Mary Day and the Blue Plate Restaurant Group has you covered with $7 Bottomless Bloody Marys all day long at The Lowry, Three Squares, Freehouse, Longfellow Grill and Edina Grill. Plus, the pickles and olives totally count as veggies so you’re off to a great start on those pesky resolutions too. Yay you.
Kick off 2016 and beat back the barking hell hounds in your head with the epic bloody Mary bar at Hell's Kitchen. DJ Shannon Blowtorch will be kicking up beats sure to bring anyone back from the dead and Nina DiAngelo will be doing drag as both Barbara Striesand AND Cher. Do you believe in life after love? And did we mention free crab legs as a bloody Mary garnish? Yeah.
There will be plenty of fab New Year’s Day brunches around town to satisfy every craving and ease every pounding head, but we thought we’d mention Marin’s because, well, $10 bottomless mimosas. DJ Shiek wil be playing some tunes, hopefully not too loudly. Brunch runs until 4 p.m. so you can sleep in and still catch a mimosa or five.
Saturday, January 2
Enjoy some of The Herbivorous Butcher’s fiery Sriracha brats with a couple of Sisyphus Maple Stouts and take some meat-like and cheese-like items home for later. Mozzarella and Dill Havarti vegan cheeses will be sold exclusively at the pop up and online pre-order for all items is open now until Friday at 10:00 p.m. The vegan menu includes Beef Tips, Maple Glazed Bacon, Korean Ribs and Salt & Peppa Jerky, just to name a few.
The Travail crew will be popping up at Eat Street Social and mixing killer cocktails for the latest installment of the Tiki Pop Up, which celebrates the “breaking rules and thinking outside the box” vibe of Tiki. Expect the unexpected from the wildly innovative minds of Travail and Eat Street Social. Small plates will available from the Eat Street kitchen. Doors open at 8 p.m. and we are being cautioned that space is extremely limited.
