Things to do for November 10, 2011

The Weekender

Big Game, Beer Cocktails and a Pastry Surprise

Take two weekends and call us in the morning.

Thursday
It’s About Off-Menu Beer Cocktails
BEER ADVOCATE

It’s About Off-Menu Beer Cocktails

Menus are stupid (note: menus are not stupid). But when the opportunity presents itself to rise above them, the results tend to be remarkable. Case in point: off-menu beer cocktails at Cypress Street—think Black Velvet (champagne and stout) and Christie’s Brunch Box with amaretto, Allagash White and OJ. Who needs waffles.

If Ted Nugent Were a Five-Course Dinner
GAME ON

If Ted Nugent Were a Five-Course Dinner

If you have dinner plans tonight, you’ll want to cancel those. Because in just a few short hours, the Bourbon and Bordeaux Game Dinner will commence. Wild Boar Chipolata and roasted rack of elk with be paired with bordeaux. Chocolate pudding cake will be paired with bourbon. And you will rejoice.

Friday
Grocery Shopping at Cakes & Ale
BREAD WINNER

Grocery Shopping at Cakes & Ale

It’s always best to do your grocery shopping in amazing restaurants. For the bread portion, allow us to suggest Cakes & Ale. They just launched prepaid memberships to their bakery. Meaning that every Saturday, you’ll pick up a “bread box” filled with sandwich loaves, pastries and a weekly surprise. Hint: it’s not ale.

Saturday
Too Many Bands at the Goat Farm
LAY OF THE BAND

Too Many Bands at the Goat Farm

There’s a gigantic music festival at the Goat Farm this weekend. All local acts. Bands with names like Cloudeater and Gun Party (there’s no excuse not to name a band that). You can also expect miscellany like visual artists and random glowing things everywhere. That’s the theme: glow. No word on sticks.

Amazingly Named Bands and Homebrew
WONDER YEARS

Amazingly Named Bands and Homebrew

By now you’ve heard of WonderRoot. That group that provides production facilities and whatnot for local artists. Well, this Saturday they’re providing you with pints of heady homebrews, towering plates of soul food and six bands like I Want Whiskey and the Cartoon Orchestra from Savannah. They’re just normal humans, though.
