Things to do for September 20, 2012
All the Chili, Fried Chicken and Crustless PB&J You Can Handle
If you don’t like the weekend, wait a minute, it’ll change.
Bison Burgers on the Westside
Swit Bakery. It’s gone. You know this. You’ve said your goodbyes. And now you’re ready to welcome something new in its place. That something: West & Mill Bistro Bar. Their deal: bison burgers, cold beers and weekend brunching. Good to know Swit didn’t die in vain.
The Pinewood, Now Brown-Bagging It
No one can pack a lunch like Mom did. Well, the Pinewood is trying. They just launched a brown-bag lunch/sit-down counter service. On the to-go menu: turkey meat loaf, chicken and andouille gumbo, and PB&J. Crust optional.
50-Plus Kinds of Chili in Brookhaven...
You’ve been neglecting chili lately. Probably because it was hot out. Or you were on a gazpacho kick. Or because you were waiting for the Brookhaven Chili Cook-Off... It’ll be you, your chili, some ice-cold brews, a tasting spoon and 50 massive vats of homemade chili. No double-dipping.
And 20-Plus Kinds of Fried Chicken
Or maybe you’re in more of a buttermilk-brined-drumstick kind of mood. If so, here’s a different cook-off. A fried-chicken-themed one that’s being judged by Kevin Gillespie and awarding the winner a free trip to New York. For everyone else: probably a set of steak knives.
Doing Italian Things at Double Zero
The Feast of San Gennaro. It’s that festival in Little Italy. Happens once a year. Everyone eats a bunch of cannoli. Well, this year, Double Zero is taking a stab at it. There’ll be pizza-making classes, vendors everywhere (think High Road/pasta/sausage guys), music and as always: Italian wines for tastings. Generously.
