Chicaholic: W Downtown's Terrace Fest
Chicaholic’s got your weekly imbibing agenda all planned out, and it’s an easy one: simply hit the W Downtown’s Terrace Fest! Naturally, spring is when scoring a sweet outdoor space sans the typical overwhelming city crowds becomes one of the season’s most important searches. Consider that quest over…well, at least for the next seven days. Tonight, the Fest kicks off with a W Rum Bar courtesy of 10 Cane; throughout the week, there will be a different spirited theme party each evening through June 4. While they all sound equally delish, we’re partial to the Cocktail Passport event tomorrow: bounce between four different stations serving up Stellina di Notte bellinis, Leblon cachaça caipirinhas, and Moscow Mules from Stolichnaya (natch!) plus sangria (the recipe’s top secret!). Bonus: get your passport stamped at each station and you’ll be entered to win prizes. On Saturday, you can indulge your Ocean Beach obsession with The White Party with DJ Reid who’s getting some back up from a live percussion crew. Or, hit up Sunday afternoon’s BBQ, full of grilled nibbles and mango mint iced tea spiked with Sailor Jerry spiced rum or a simple strawberry lemonade with Reyka vodka.
