That's pretty much how this weekend is going to go, whether my ass is in town or not.
So I thought I'd shoot over some of my picks for things coming up, while I'm getting drunk on Bourbon St. :)
Minus The Bear & Tim Kasher at Stubbs [have fun Rudy!!]
I'll be driving away from this city lights while you can go try to win some F^3 tickets at Franks tonight.
Not only fun and games, but a specialty menu just for tonight in correlation with Fun Fest Stages.
The specially priced menu features wieners inspired by the colors of the four Fun Fest stages:
The Orange Stage dog (deep fried hot dog, wrapped in bacon, slammed in hot wing sauce and topped with blue cheese)
The Black Stage dog (split dog, wrapped in bacon, fried and topped with mustard BBQ sauce)
The Blue Stage dog (battered and deep fried hot dog topped with sausage gravy)
The Yellow Stage dog (chili dog smothered in cheese, caramelized onions and jalapenos).
I recommend getting there early (Rec Room kicks off at 9 p.m.) since this exclusive menu is extremely limited, much like the remaining Fun Fest tix from what I gather.
Can someone get me a black stage and freeze while I'm gone??? Holy shit. Frank knows fucking 'dags!
Not only that, but prizes for the following
There's "Win Fun Fest tix by wearing awesome costumes" contest.
The patron in the best costume (voted upon by Daniel Northcutt, Brendan Hannah, Adi Anand, & Chris Apollo Lynn) will receive two tickets to this year's Fun Fest (Saturday & Sunday);
Two runner-ups will receive gift certificates to Frank. Enthusiastic owner Northcutt confirmed via a fast ‘n’ furious text message exchange, "Yeah, the two runner ups will receive gift certificates to Frank. I just hope Hannah is into it." Manager Hannah was quick to add that he was "really into it."
Bonus Points! The player with longest ping pong or UNO win-streak in costume, or a victory over Big Buck Safari maestro Hannah, will win a beer courtesy of Frank.
So, GO!! And someone beat Adi at ping pong, pleeeease!!!
