Doesn’t this weather warm-up make you want to hit a fancy patio? The Walker couldn’t have picked a better day to open out the outdoor seating at fancy Esker Grove, their in-house restaurant overlooking the Sculpture Garden. To celebreate the opening and temps, EG will have $5 specials on food (including ribs, shramps, and more), beer, wine, and cocktails (including a fresh fruit caipirinhas with Novo Fogo Cachaça . . . god damn). Plus Kurt Ruslin will be doing vinyl duty during the party—it’s going to be a scene so get there on the early side to get a table. Tuesday, May 14th, 6-9 PM. Free. —Art Humes
