Things to do for April 12, 2012
Fried Chicken, John Cusack and Zombies on Roller Skates
The weekend makes its own luck.
Bleeding Heart Bakery presents what it’s calling Sideshow, an evening of seven hard-driving rock bands, five boom-shakalaka-ing burlesque dancers and an open bar. It’s all in an effort to support local farming. Hey, nobody said it had to make sense.
The Modern Wing turns itself over to the tender mercies of its Evening Associates, who’ll have their merry way with Griffin Court. It’s a gala of cocktailing, art tours, dancers, video photo booths and superb hobnobbing opportunities. Also, maybe just a dash of international art thieving.
You, Zombies and a Real Live Hobbit
There’s a comic book convention this weekend. Wait, stay with us here. It’s more than that. Sean Astin (or as you call him, Rudy) will be there. Plus, John Cusack, zombie roller derby girls (the sexiest kind of undead) and a guy dressed as Batman. Actually, check that, several guys dressed as Batman.
A Thing for Sharp Objects
The dullest thing about you: your knives. (Someone had to say it.) The fix: a Saturday trunk show featuring the latest in Japanese cutlery. So you can stop by, pick up some chef-quality blades and get a few pointers from a master knife guy. No, we’re not sure if he’s been trained by Benihana.
Some Sunday Afternoon Fried Chicken
You know Dose Market. It’s that monthly bazaar of handsomeness where you’ll find rugged bags from Haberdash EDC and Big Ass Bricks of Soap from Duck Cannon Supply Company. It’s also where you’ll find Honey Butter Fried Chicken and a complimentary cocktail from Nellcôte. Ah, the joys of discovery.
