Things to do for October 27, 2011
Sexy Ghouls, Chocolate, Whiskey and Other Treats
The weekend is scared and wants you to hold it.
You want a new shirt. You want a juicy steak. Once, these were completely separate pursuits. This Gitman trunk show party changes that. Peruse heritage flannel, chambrays and work-ready button-downs while Michael Jordan’s Steak House provides refreshments—and for every two shirts, you get $40 at MJ’s; six nets $150. Use/wear wisely.
Candy Is Dandy, but Liquor...
As a kid, you fantasized about hitting a candy shop on Halloween where an amiable shopkeeper lets you go facedown in the gummy worms. It never happened. But Vosges does offer a night of pairing their Day of the Dead chocolate with fine scotches. So go nuts, kid.
You like a good scary story, so here goes. You’re in a darkened room. There is a beautiful woman next to you. She’s reading out loud. Something gothic. Poe, maybe. Perhaps King. Also, she’s totally naked. The end. The frightening part: you totally forgot it’s BYOB.
Speaking of dark places with beautiful people, Sunda is hosting its annual candlelit Dim Sum in the Dark Halloween thing. Everything on the special small-plate menu is $8.88, from the duck-stuffed buns to the Crunchy Pig Hidden Lobster. Which may also make a good couples costume.
Tapas: Now Slightly Scary.
Your travels have taken some strange detours (the less said about that lederhosen-optional castle in Munich, the better). So Hubbard Inn dresses up as a creaky, old, haunted European inn offering unlimited tapas, champagne, cocktails and beer. Those Euro ghosts really know how to entertain.
