    Twin Liquors: Dollar Sale Weekend

    Yeah, no, this is totally a thing. The annual three-day sales spectacular features incredible savings on wine and spirits 750 ml and larger: Prices drop to the absolute lowest plus a dollar. And that includes collectible wines, rare whiskies, and other popular tipples. And the Twin Liquor Marketplace locations will be offering free breakfast tacos – thanks, Deep Eddy Vodka – but, no matter which store you go to, make sure you get there early, because, tell you what, every boozehound in town will be swarming, y'know what we mean? See website for details.

    Pitchfork Pretty: Rum for Your Life

    It’s not always about the goddamn tiki, is it? No! Chef Max Snyder’s excellent Eastside eatery is celebrating National Rum Month with a new program that features more than 40 rums from 20-plus countries. With rotating cocktails, flights, and rare finds sure to delight even the most jaded palate, this August at Pitchfork Pretty is shaping up as the most spirited month of tippling in town. (Our reco: Try the “Misfit Rum Flight” for one of those – whattayacallit? – next-level experiences.)
    Through Aug. 31
