Things to do for April 14, 2011
Rooftop Bikinis, Bacon Burgers and Block Parties
The weekend always files on time.
Cupcakes and Bacon Burgers in Midtown
High on your list of needs: a morning-to-night croissant and red velvet cupcake hookup. Enter this place, a new café for casual dinners of Octopus Salad or the Sweet Point Burger topped with bacon, ham, fried egg and chips. It’s like a bacon burger, squared.
Your favorite indie record shop is celebrating its sixth anniversary this weekend. Their gift to you: a daylong block party with performances from two dozen local bands and DJs, a food truck rally and gratis beer. You love DJ-fueled birthday parties.
It’s been a while since you witnessed a rooftop bikini fashion show (at least a week). Here to rectify the situation: this showcase of two-piecers populated by 40 models sporting the works of 10 designers. It’s best to approach these things with an open mind. And lots of cocoa butter.
Now that winter is over, the taco gypsies behind the NYC-based truck are heading back north. Bid them farewell at The Stage as they sling their last Playero tacos. Bonus: bring one of Montaco’s stickers and get half off Brendan O’Hara’s performance inside. Consider it a taco badge of honor.
Bayside Brunching in the Grove
After a day of outdoor concerting, a restorative brunch may be in order. We suggest the Grove Isle’s latest mimosa-laden contender. Your spread includes unlimited champagne, oysters, Char-Grilled Flank Steak and amazing views of the bay. Nothing revives like a waterfront steak.
