Calories burned, cocktail earned, right? (Quick, someone crochet that on a pillow.)

Après workout, treat-yo-self to a wine tasting. Pliés for Pinot Noir? Okay. Crunches for Cabernet? Makes sense to me. Calf-raises for Chardonnay? Got it. Pulsing for Pinot Grigio? You get it.

Corsets & Cocktails: Jane Pickens Theater Presents Love & Friendship

love-and-friendship-chloesevigny-katebeckinsaleThe Place: Jane Pickens Theater in Newport is currently showing Love & Friendship, a film adaptation of Jane Austen’s novella Lady Susan. It stars Kate Beckinsdale and Chloë Sevigny, both wearing an enviable wardrobe throughout.

The Plot: Lady Susan Vernon is a scandalous and scheming socialite who is an expert at camouflaging her diminishing fortune. Destitute and dabbling in multiple dalliances, she assumes the role as matchmaker for her daughter Frederica–and herself. Hilarity ensues. 

The Skinny: Whether you’re a certified Janite or a casual appreciator of well-written, fast-paced satirical snark, you’ll enjoy this sassy charmer. 

love-friendship-prosecco-newport.JPGThe Bevvies: The Pickens is the only theater town serving up craft cocktails, so while you can opt for atrusty  Mojito or Dark n’ Stormy, consider one of their specials like the Pom Fresco (vodka, cucumber, pomegranate, Prosecco and fresh lemon), Jane Pickens (gin, Pimm’s, lavender and fresh lime), Gotham City (barrel aged Manhattan), Selma (tequila, habanero, cilantro, grapefruit and fresh lime) or the Sailor’s Cider (Newport’s own Thomas Tew Rum with cider). Me? I chose a simple split of Prosecco. Cheers!

Love & Friendship now playing through June 9.
