What's up for the weekend? Probably will go off on the bubble tea per my usual but here are some other intriguing options:
- Friday: Opening night reception "what is left unsaid" at Voltage Coffee & Art (suggestion: get some boiled peanuts and a whiskey/espresso cocktail at Hungry Mother after; that's how I spent my night last Friday and it was pretty perfect)
- Saturday: "2nd Annual Quick Draw Event at Good Life": I didn't get to go last year but if you saw the cover of this week's Dig complete with lick and stick tattoos you got a sneak peak at some of the art. Per the event's FB page its "the group is a national low brow, urban, and modern art..." which sounds right up our alley. A rare chance to see art created on the spot.
- Sunday: Better grab some brunch (or afternoon tea) at UpStairs on the Square before everyone's favorite restaurant that reminds you of your-crazy-glamorous-but-lipstick-teethed-aunt closes. Eater broke the news this afternoon and I'm bummed. I celebrated my 21st birthday there with my first cocktail ("Venus in Furs") as well as my engagement, birthdays, and just-because-I-want-the-world's-best-turtles moments. Every girlfriend of mine falls as hard for the decor as I did- it's just out there and beautiful, it has this way of reminding you, and making you feel like, the woman you dreamed of being as a little girl. And they stoked the fireplace throughout the winter. There was also that time a friend and I found ourselves trapped in the middle of a Harvard glee club impromptu performance, complete with bunny hops and too much gingham. I threw my eggs up in my mouth and crawled under the table but it was just that one time.
