Things to do for February 16, 2012
Pretty Woman, Half-Off Pizza and Lots of Beads
The weekend corners like it’s on rails.
Coffee, Beer and Duck-Fat Fries
You’re on 3rd Street. Buying some shoes at Douglas Fir or whatever. Suddenly, you’re stricken with an intense urge for an Allagash Curieux Triple Ale, some duck-fat fries and grass-fed short rib. This is your new neighborhood stop. Walk there in your new shoes.
Your Table of Half-Off Pizzas
Lately, you’ve had a ton of afternoon meetings. Which makes you crave afternoon pizza. Enter Urbano, which has a new afternoon happy hour with $4 beers and half-off pizzas—like the one topped with potato, Brussels sprouts and roasted garlic. You’re feeling more productive already.
Oyster Mania at Chaya
Oysters. So fresh. So delicious. So... kind of monotonous. But if you come by the Venice outpost of Chaya right now, you can try out their Baked Oysters Rockefeller with spinach and bacon. Or their Kobe Short Rib Pot Pie with baked oyster zucchini. Or yeah, just some regular oysters.
A Tender Bike Ride. From a Sex Shop.
The romantic bike ride: it’s been done. (See: Butch Cassidy. Or: Wedding Crashers.) Here to give it a new spin: the Pleasure Chest, which is taking folks on a post-Valentine’s bike tour of local romance landmarks, like the Pretty Woman fire escape. Afterward: beer, popcorn and dirty movies. Wear red.
Beads and Bourbon at the Churchill
You can’t make it to Mardi Gras this year (you’ve got Mardi Gras rewrites for Garry Marshall). Luckily, the Churchill will be throwing a massive indoor-outdoor party with beads, masks and $11 bourbon-and-beer combos. At a certain point in the evening, hitting the photo booth will no longer be advised.
