Things to do for September 13, 2012
Eating Alligator, Drinking Gin and a Little Dim Sum Something
The weekend wipes its own glasses.
Happy Anniversary, Gin Mill
The Gin Mill’s having a party. Because it’s been around for one year, and that’s reason enough to celebrate. Expect free hors d’oeuvres, discounted drinks and live music. Plus a bunch of people dressed like extras in Boardwalk Empire. And gin that won’t make you go blind.

Dim Sum Brunching at Five Sixty
Something’s happening. High atop Reunion Tower. And it involves duck bao buns. Yes, Five Sixty’s launching brunch. Dim sum brunch, to be exact. Which means your table’s about to be inundated with a bunch of little Asian-inspired dishes. It’s not about the size of the dish...
Your New Fried-Chicken Lunch Spot
You’re familiar with Sissy’s. That warm refuge of fried chicken and bourbon. And how, try as you might, you just can’t get in before 5pm. Well, here’s some uplifting news. Starting Tuesday, Sissy’s opens for lunch. Great, now you can stop picking the lock.
