You’re always on the lookout for another Gables power spot. This handsome newcomer has four menus that are used throughout the year, one for each season. And they also claim there is no butter in the restaurant. We can forgive that.
Things to do for November 18, 2010
Pig’s Feet, Dave Eggers and Beach Hookah
The weekend is proving it all night.
Now that the temps have lowered, you’ll be needing a few more reliable Snuggies. Also, some solid winter clothes. Good news on that second front: James Perse has opened a Miami outpost, where you can find lots of his simple, wearable knitwear (cotton tees, canvas jackets, fitted hoodies).
Consider this weekend’s authorfest the Art Basel of books, where you’ll catch famous scribes like Rushdie, Eggers, Jonathan Franzen and... that dude who plays guitar for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Because rock stars who moonlight as novelists are better than novelists who moonlight as rock stars.
In honor of this weekend’s full moon, you could: A) brave the barefoot ravers in North Beach, or B) settle into a cabana on the beach, fortifying your telescope viewings with $7 mojitos, $5 beers and complimentary hookah. (Hint: go with B.)
At this year’s porkapalooza—put on by GastroPod chef Jeremiah Bullfrog—you’ll have the run of a Whole Roasted Pig, plus there’ll be cheap beers, a hoedown-y vibe and pork-flecked Carbonara Ice Cream. Your move, Cold Stone Creamery.
