Hi Barbie! Local venues are gearing up for the July 21 release of Greta Gerwig's incoming pop culture phenomenon by featuring some events and food and drink specials with serious Kenergy. Don your favorite shade of pink and get ready to go party.


The Aimsir Distilling Company List
In reference to "Barbenheimer" (the occurrence of the highly anticipated, diametrically opposed films Barbie and Oppenheimer coming out on the same day), Aimsir is offering a cocktail for each movie: the "Barbie Dreamhouse" (rosé gin, Combier, and strawberry puree simple syrup) and the "Manhattan Project" (Stout Barrel bourbon, Toki Japanese whisky, and Cocchi Amaro with hellfire and mole bitters).
Pickup, dine-in

Ground Breaker Brewing and Gastropub List
Given her wide array of professions, there's no reason Barbie can't be a badass brewer. Ground Breaker will offer $1 off any pint if you show up in your Barbiecore finest this weekend.
Pickup, dine-in

Kate's Ice Cream List
Think pink: Kate's Ice Cream (which is hosting a sold-out screening of the film) will launch its new "Barbie's Bubblegum" flavor in the leading lady's favorite hue on the day of the premiere.
Pickup, delivery, dine-in

Redwood List
Indulge in "Barbie's Dark Secret," a "spicy, sparkly" sip with pineapple rum, habanero vodka, lemon, and ube.

Barbie Rave: A Barbie Inspired Rave Past Event List
Barbie Rave is a new dance party organized by the totally tubular folks at Candi Pop! Dress plastic and fantastic while you dance to girly pop classics. Barbie attire is heavily encouraged, but I’m thinking Ken-inspired 'fits (who, let’s face it, we all know is actually her gay best friend) are totally acceptable, too. Will you be Doctor Barbie? Mod Barbie? Tired and mentally ill millennial Barbie? Similar to other throwback dance events, like Emo Night, there’s something comforting about relishing in childhood nostalgia amongst a group of strangers. It brings us back to simpler times, even if just for one whimsical evening. BRITTNE LUNNISS
Crystal Ballroom, July 21, 8 pm
