This Weekend: Karaoke, Whiskey and Dodgeball
The weekend is growing its playoff beard.
Welcome Stranger’s introducing a bunch of fall gear tonight: indigo shirts, embroidered flasks from Smathers & Branson and caps created in collaboration with Ebbets Field. To celebrate, they’re also serving you Sam Adams Octoberfest. Which is probably why they’re called Welcome Stranger.
You’ll have some decisions to make here. First: whether to get a custom Gitman Bros. Vintage shirt in flannel, chambray, plaid or gingham. Second: whiskey—single malt, single cask, scotch... Actually, any decision is a good decision.
Stop by Bar Tartine’s sandwich shop to celebrate the release of photographer Todd Selby’s new food-focused coffee-table book. You can try creations inspired by the book, whipped up by the likes of Danny Bowien of Mission Chinese and Russell Moore of Camino. It’d be rude not to.
Monday night karaoke: it’s on. And if ever there were a place to make it happen, it’s Rio Grande, what with the beer-and-a-shot specials and the stripper poles. Great for reenacting the “Hot for Teacher” video.
You’ve got your headband. Your high socks. Your portfolio of Dodgeball quotes. A few teammates. That’s pretty much all you’ll need for this all-day charity dodgeball tournament. Proceeds go to a good cause. No, not saving Vince Vaughn’s gym.
