Mix-It Up, Big Loud and Live, Boston Restaurant Week, Salmon in Seward and Surf Photography
August 8, 2007
|Renkoo Tip of the Week
To celebrate Blizzard’s announcement of the Wrath of the Lich King expansion pack for World of Warcaft, we’ve released a few of our favorites boozes from Azeroth. Pass along a Moonberry Juice, a Skin of Dwarven Stout, and for your peeps in the Buring Crusade, a frosty draught of Dos Ogris.
Wednesday is the new Thursday
Fun things to make plans to do this week…
The Beastie Boys hit Central Park’s Summer Stage tonight. These guys have done it all and then some. If you can’t get to the show, you can spend a fair hour on their extensive site and jam along to their latest instrumental offering, The Mix-Up.
The Drum Corps International World Championships are filling the Rose Bowl this week. If you’re not in LA, the DCI’s got you covered tonight when they broadcast live via satellite across the nation. Find a local theater and catch the fourth year of BIG, LOUD & LIVE! Pa rum pum pum pum.
Get out of your dining rut this week and try a new restaurant. That’s the whole point of Restaurant Week Boston where participating restaurants like Meritage offer three-course, prix fixe lunches ($20.07) and dinners ($33.07). Shake things up this week and go back to your routines the week after next (this cool gig continues next week after a break tomorrow). Not in Boston? Make up your own restaurant week!
Seward, Alaska. This is where you go to fish for salmon and this is the week to do it — it’s the 52nd Annual Seward Silver Salmon Derby. The two-week fishing competition offers prizes for most fish caught, biggest fish of the day and biggest fish of the derby. You can’t have enough salmon either; you know by now that omega-3 fatty acids are the fat du jour! You can get to Seward (126 miles south of Anchorage if that helps) by car, cruise ship or on the Alaska Railroad. We think the Hotel
Edgewater looks lovely!
Summer’s in full swing so when you’re done paddling out for the day, wipe the sand off your feet and wander around the Oceanside Museum of Art’s 70s surf photography exhibit. It showcases the work of Jeff Devine who was a staff photographer for Surfer magazine in the era of psychedelic board art. There are photos and surfboards on display. Groovy man.
