Things to do for October 20, 2011
Burgers at 3am and a Mystery Mansion
The weekend just called. To say. I love you.
Japanese Curry in the TL
Curry: probably not top of mind when thinking about Japanese food. But actually, it’s been a mainstay in Japan since the 1800s. Now you can get it at Kare-Ken, a stamp-sized, eight-seater restaurant. Place your order through the to-go window, and if you score seats inside, know that it’s BYOB. Pack accordingly...
The last time Kevin Spacey and director Sam Mendes worked together, we got American Beauty. This time they’re partnering up to put on a Shakespearian play about a Machiavellian rise to power. If you find any overlap, let us know.
Seems like just the other day we were talking about old-school, East Coast shirtmakers Gitman Bros. Actually, we were. But now they’re handing over the reins where you and your next shirt are concerned. For a few hours, you’ll pick through 300 swatches and collars to come up with your made-to-order creation. Make them proud.
3am Burgers on Chestnut
Probably the best thing about the opening of this, the third Super Duper Burger joint, is that you’ll have a legit late-night weekend option to add to your meager post-last-call/pre-3am arsenal. Do what you need to do until then.
15 Romolo’s Mystery Mansion Party
This post-Halloween party goes down in a 28-room 1889 mansion. There will be a DIY Manhattan bar, or you can get cocktails mixed by the 15 Romolo guys. Victorian-era attire is welcomed and will be amply rewarded. By amply we mean something more than a drink, but less than the mansion.
