Things to do for March 29, 2012
Mystery Wings, Late-Night Waffles and Foosball
The weekend will smoke ’em if you got ’em.
The New Jaleo’s Ode to Foosball, Gin
The number six will figure prominently in your enjoyment of the newly refurbished Jaleo downtown. First, there are six seats around each of the two foosball dining tables. Second, you can play while you sample their six gin and tonics and nosh on Gin & Tonic oysters. Losers buy.
Introducing Wing Roulette at Nando’s
You prefer your nights to have a few surprises. And maybe a physical challenge. Enter the new Wing Roulette, a devious platter of 10 wings in which the sauce for each wing is chosen randomly by the kitchen staff—maybe lemon herb, maybe the volcanic peri-peri sauce. Still much less messy than Russian roulette.
2am Waffles at the Fruit Bat
Rule of thumb: your weekend cannot contain too many waffles. Especially after last call. The Fruit Bat is turning over its kitchen to a food truck each weekend and serving until at least 2am. First up: Grids Waffles. Finally, a use for your syrup flask.
Where Activism Meets Mustaches
Stop shaving. Right now. Because on Sunday, you’ll want to make common cause with your hirsute brethren as the Million Mustache March takes its cause from the Capitol to the White House, with some complimentary beer thrown your way at Capitol City Brewing. Watch out for foam on your upper lip.
You’ve waited a whole year, but the annual bacchanalia of pork known as Cochon 555 is back next month. Your stars: five local chefs, a Manhattan bar and plenty of wine and oysters. Oh, and seven heritage pigs.
