Things to do for October 27, 2011
Whiskey, Halloween Brunch and The Monster Squad
The weekend is never delayed by rain.
The city’s finest restaurant/bar on top of a movie theater marquee is unveiling a new cocktail menu heavy on gin and brandy libations. But we’ll save you some time: get the Dire Straits (12-year-Macallan, fig and vanilla with allspice dram). Pairs well with “Sultans of Swing.”
Sipping Mojitos with a Cuban Band
Your daily mojito update: (1) Your mint leaves are coming in nicely this fall. (2) Urban Taco is pouring blueberry and mango mojitos for five bucks every Thursday, as part of a new Buena Vista night. There will also be a Cuban jazz trio on hand. No cigars, sadly.
Your weekend to-do list: finalize Halloween costume. Pick up dry cleaning. Rappel down a hotel. We can help—tomorrow, the 15-story InterContinental hotel is letting you create a team and rappel. (It’s for the Special Olympics—you have to bid to do it.) You’re on your own for the dry cleaning.
<em>The Monster Squad</em>. Freaks. And You.
It’s Halloween at Sunday School...
Halloween parties are so predictable: pumpkins, cobwebs, “Boo Berry Punch.” (It’s even painful to type that.) That’s why Sunday School is hosting a Halloween brunch party. You’ll be sipping champagne and eating egg white frittatas as the DJ spins. Egg whites are the new candy corn.
