Festivus

Young professionals rejoice: This Saturday, day drinking isn’t restricted to college kids. The 3rd annual All About Uptown Festival will rage from 11am-10pm (enough time for you to recover from Friday night and continue bar-hopping into the morning). For your freelancer pockets, the admission is gratis. Festivities will occur on Fairmount Street between McKinney Ave and Cedar Springs, and free parking is offered at the Crescent Real Estate Tower. Chefs from Sambuca, State & Allen, The Capital Grille, and more will be whipping up tasty treats, and local bands like A Hard Day’s Night will be performing. Intriguing fact: Cemetery tours are being held. More intriguing fact: The tours are self-directed. Now I’m just plain curious. Prepare your livers, and I will see you, my fellow Uptowners, this Saturday.

Vegas who?

It’s summertime, and it’s safe to say I’ve been dreaming about lounging poolside in Vegas with drink in hand, and another on the way. I’ve been compensating by laying out at my apartment complex, but it’s just not the same … until I met Brian. Brian works at State Thomas’ newest wine venue, The Alcove, where he efficiently orbits my apartment’s pool with large crates of beer and wine, delivering orders to my fellow sun-worshippers. Oh, and did I mention they serve late night tacos until 2 am? Win. So who needs Vegas anyway? With poolside delivery from The Alcove, what happens in Uptown, stays in Uptown.
