Things to do for January 20, 2011
Snowmen, 50-Cent Burgers and a Shirt Sale
The weekend will see you now.
70% Off at Mohawk General
Sure, the midcentury furniture at Mohawk General Store would look great in your living room. But the Schott leather jackets, Gitman Brothers shirts and Generic Man shoes further back would look even better on your bank statement—most clothes are now up to 70% off.
Monthly Mixology at Michael’s
To kick off a monthly series of guest-bartender nights at Michael’s, guys from Bar Toscana and The Yard will pour you drinks like a Little Italy (rye whiskey, Dimmi Liquore and peach bitters) to go with your Trio of Tacos—they’re duck confit, rock shrimp and pork belly. Nothing says Italy like tacos.
Brentwood Country Mart’s 10-day sale starts tomorrow, and you may want to stop by the kickoff party (from noon to 3pm) on your lunch break—they’ll have 5-cent soft serve, 20-cent fries and 50-cent burgers to celebrate. Just remember that’s 75 fewer cents you have to spend at Monocle.
Big Snow Bash at Mammoth Mountain
To ring in December’s record 17 feet of snow, Mammoth has put together a weekend-long mountain party. Included: 17-foot snowmen, $3 burritos from Roving Mammoth (it’s like a food truck, but it’s a snowcat) and drink specials all night at Hyde’s White Out Party on Saturday. Also, skiing.
The Tasting Kitchen Launches Brunch
Consider it your new Venice brunch go-to, complete with chicken and waffles, oysters and sausages, french toast, and a meat board (steak, bacon, sausages). Helping you wash it down: Four Barrel coffee, two kinds of Bloody Marys and a Bluebird: bourbon, blueberry and clove.
