Things to do for April 07, 2011
Lamb Sausage, a Beer Garden and Partying Silently
The weekend would like to propose a toast.
Look at the New Osteria La Buca
After shutting down for a(nother) total overhaul, your Paramount-adjacent Italian go-to is back. And bigger. And different. Take a seat by the windows in the new downstairs dining room, and new chef Jason Neroni will send over lamb sausage and pork meatballs to go with your Campari Punch.
MOCA’s Silent Disco Party
Show up to the Downtown MOCA tonight with some earphones and anything that receives a radio signal. Over the airwaves will come live music and dance remixes—dancing is encouraged, and unlike the other works of art in the museum, you’re allowed to be touched.
A Wine Bar Legend Launches Brunch
Over the years, AOC has always had wine and bubbly waiting when you needed it—except for brunch. But try the doors at 10am this weekend, and they’ll open into a land of Grilled Blueberry Bread, duck confit, wild mushroom hash... and yes, wine and bubbly. Well played, AOC.
A Pop-Up Beer Garden
In short: when beer bars like Surly Goat, Blue Palms and Tony’s Darts Away band together for a beer party in the sun, you need to know. A $10 mug is your admission ticket (only 100 will be available at the door, so arrive early), and dozens of craft beers are $5 each.
First & Hope’s New Cocktail Cart
When you’re having a nice brunch, it would be great if the bar would come to you. So First & Hope is rolling out a cocktail cart fully stocked with everything from prosecco to limoncello to bitters. We don’t recommend trying all three together.
