Things to do for November 17, 2011
An Early Thanksgiving, a Milk Bar and the City’s New Sausage King
The weekend misses Rondo. It just does.
Lately, the retail space at 71 Newbury has been abandoned. But from today until Sunday, it’s functioning as the sample-sale war room for Sferra, an Italian linens purveyor that also makes slippers. Grab up to 70% off towels, sheets, duvet covers... and cashmere slippers. Aka Ron Burgundy’s house shoes.
Banjos + A Clockwork Orange = This
You could use a little crazy in your life. By which we mean live banjo performances, theatrical readings and burlesque—all happening at Church this weekend. They’re even dressing the place up like the Korova Milk Bar from A Clockwork Orange. Because, why not.
Crowning the City’s New Sausage King
You’ve been slipping on your sausage intake lately. Enter Dante’s Sausagefest this Sunday, where top chefs from Coppa, OM and Catalyst will be serving you their takes on the meat (think: venison, wild boar) as you crown one of them king. But really, everyone wins here. It’s sausage.
A New Breed of Thanksgiving
Consider this a Thanksgiving rehearsal. The Urban Grape and Trina’s Starlite Lounge are teaming up on Sunday to throw a booze-paired, four-course Thanksgiving complete with ham, duck liver and Miller High Life, all for 15 bucks. Warning: you may be totally over Thanksgiving when everyone else celebrates it.
You have his shirts. His cufflinks. Even his cologne. Now, you’ll watch a documentary about the life of legendary French designer Yves Saint Laurent, packed with tuxedo stories, inseam anecdotes and, thankfully, subtitles. It should prepare you for next month’s short film on the founder of Members Only.
