Things to do for January 12, 2012
Total Request Live, Donut Theater and Devil’s Sauce
The weekend travels with a live band.
You. Tonight. Singing. On Stage.
Recall if you will Total Request Live. Now, put that in the Lansdowne Pub every Thursday starting tonight, and make the requests executed by a live band. And then add the option of you doing the singing. And pouring your own stouts. This is a no-lose situation.
Just Your Average Play About Donuts
Some things are difficult to grasp. Health care. Campaign finance reform. The appeal of American Stuffers. Then there’s Superior Donuts at the Lyric Stage, which is a comedy-drama set in a donut shop in Chicago. We hear the bear claw’s performance is riveting.
Tangling with Seriously Hot Food
Perhaps knowing your tolerance for spicy foods, Zocalo is throwing a “Dancing with the Devil” night. Think: shredded pork tacos with chipotle chilies, spicy Manhattans with hellfire bitters and Devil’s Sauce for everything, made with some of the hottest chilies in the world. Something warm sounds good right about now.
Getting Down with Some Port
Then again, by Tuesday you’ll be wrapped up in all things South Carolina, which for some reason reminds you of port wine. Enter Legal’s Park Plaza, which is pairing fish, duck and hickory-wood-grilled lamb shoulder with vintage port. And for dessert: Romney. No, actually: more port.
