Things to do for July 28, 2011
A Secret Burger, Gratis Bacon and Building a Motorcycle
The weekend is eating its Wheaties.
Okay, so it’s true that they started in LA first. But there’s more than enough room in this state for honey-grilled pork banh mi and lemongrass chicken tacos. Get both just to prove that point.
Secret Burger at Prospect
You won’t see it on any menu. But it exists. It’s the elusive secret, off-menu burger. Ask for it, and on top of their regular burger (a quarter-pound of house-ground chuck on a homemade bun) you’ll get pork belly, kimchi and jack cheese. Try to act surprised.
Bourbon and Bacon at Koko’s
While these Tunnel Top vets are closing on Saturday, they’ll be relocating a few blocks down Polk. So a proper send-off would be to participate in the final Bourbon & Bacon Happy Hour. It’s where you order $6 George Dickels, and they toss in gratis center-cut slabs of applewood-smoked bacon. But you knew that.
You normally head to Slim’s to hear bands. And starting this Monday, it’ll also be your destination for braised lamb cheeks and honey-glazed short ribs. Jetset Chef, Radio Africa & Kitchen and Cathead’s BBQ are kicking off this lineup of rotating chefs. Presumably they cook better than they sing.
It’s not every day that you get to witness professionals building a custom Jack Pine bike from scratch. So you’ll want to stop by Triple Aught’s warehouse to watch as the crew from Hammarhead Industries condenses 90 days of building into three. Ride it at your own risk...
