Things to do for September 20, 2012
Breaking News in Brunch. (Hint: Laurel Hardware’s Involved...)
It’s an honor just to be weekended.
Unis Goods, Half Off. Cool.
You might’ve heard. Unis is having a big sale online and at the shop—think 50% off navy jackets, olive shorts and gray button-downs that’ll see you through this curious, long-delayed transition into autumn. Oh, you hadn’t heard. Well, now you have.
To properly celebrate Oktoberfest, you could do the whole lederhosen thing. We won’t judge. But just throwing it out there: you could also have a leisurely drinks thing at Bar Bouchon, which will be rolling out German beers, housemade pretzels and sausage. Or you could do both things.
Brunch at Laurel Hardware. It’s On.
Laurel Hardware has been pandemonium since day one. You’ve never had a more raucous dinner in a hardware store. Well, except for that one time at Ace. But anyway, now they’re taking all that crazy and channeling it into a proper brunch of corn-flour pancakes with bourbon maple syrup. And bourbon. So... not that proper.
Patio Drinking in a Faux Snowstorm
The holidays are coming quick. Like, Wednesday. That’s when the Rockwell patio turns into a whole Christmas situation to benefit the Children’s Hospital. You’ll find real imported snow, peppermint ice cream, vendors selling books and jewelry for stockings, some carols performed inside... and that old holiday standard: tequila. Hey, ’tis the season.
