Things to do for November 17, 2011
Muhammad Ali, Michael Mina and $3 Beers
The weekend knows a little about a lot.
Introducing the Rock & Roll Roof Deck
Roof decks: you’ve had enough already. Unless, of course, there was a brand-new roof deck... Enter the Rock & Roll Hotel’s new addition, a giant, open-air deck with plenty of heat lamps, a full bar and two taps. Roof decks: still very relevant.
Happy Hour That Goes On and On...
The way to make happy hour better: make it nine hours. So it is at downtown’s divey Mighty Pint, where you can get $3 drafts and $5 pint cocktails all day, every day. It’s so simple, you have to wonder why you didn’t think of it.
12 Seats + 12 Courses at Casa Nonna
Imagine sitting at a sushi bar. Now nix the sushi chefs. And the sushi. Sub in a pizza oven, an open Italian kitchen and a chef who rolls out a dozen courses based on her nightly whims—say, baked octopus, braised rabbit and Sicilian cauliflower soup. It can’t be refused.
Ali. Yogi Berra. Mary Lou Retton. Besides being your Facebook friends, they’re all subjects of the Newseum’s newest exhibit, which walks you through 50 photographs from Neil Leifer, one of Sports Illustrated’s greats. Although Sonny Liston may have felt differently.
Michael Mina Lands in Baltimore
Good news: Michael Mina of Bourbon Steak fame has another place nearby (namely, Baltimore’s harbor), and he’s serving up stuff like blue crab gratin, smoke-roasted rib eye and hush puppies. Better news: it’s in a new Four Seasons, so you won’t have to negotiate the BW Parkway home at night.
