Things to do for September 20, 2012
Your Weekend: Beer, Tennis and Ghost-Pepper Hoagies
The weekend takes no prisoners.
Hoagies Galore on 7th
Your favorite cult sandwich makers have turned their attention to foot-longs. There are 11 house hoagies, but you’ll want to try the #1 extra-spicy—a salami/mortadella/capicola number with a hearty portion of ghost peppers on it. Consider yourself warned.
Prepping for a Massive Pop-Up Feast
Okay, so you’ve already marked your calendar for Le Dîner on October 19. But the pop-up picnic/white party requires some preparation. First: take the white tux to the cleaners. Second: reserve white chairs to rent. Because God forbid you show up with gray ones...
Drinking to Help Others
Sometimes, doing your part for the good of the world requires sacrifice. And by sacrifice, we mean taking in a concert by New Orleans legend Allen Toussaint, all to benefit the Louisiana wetlands. Hey, someone’s got to do it.
The last Grand Slam tournament just ended in Flushing Meadows, but there’s more tennis to be had. Head out to Mill Valley to catch those chest-bumping Bryan brothers as they go for 294 consecutive weeks as the world’s highest-ranked doubles team. Which, according to our calculations, is a long, long time.
There Will Be Beer. Lots of It.
The guys at Almanac are breaking open some new brewed delicacies, like their limited-edition California Fresh Hop Ale (using hand-harvested barley from Stanford). Expect pairings like Japanese beef stew with 2010 vintage blackberry ale and honey saison ice cream with... honey saison. Act surprised.
