Things to do for October 25, 2012
A Weekend of Costumes, Clue and... Oysters
The weekend is dressing as Wednesday for Halloween.
Short Rib Manwiches After Dark
It’s midnight. You’re craving some burlesque, a Short Rib Manwich and a Beer, Bourbon & Bacon. (It’s a drink. There’s bacon-infused bourbon happening.) First of all, your cravings are oddly specific. Secondly, you’d better hit the new 11pm late-night party at Trattoria Neapolis. Yes, 11pm is late-night in Pasadena.
Bobbing for Apples at Villains Tavern
Friday at Villains Tavern: the kind of debaucherous 11-hour pig roast that involves crazy Halloween costumes, whiskey, apple bobbing, live music and giant Jenga. Saturday at Villains Tavern: they do it all again. Consider these your official Halloween pre-pre-party and pre-party, respectively.
Sneaking Drinks Like It’s Prohibition
Good thing you weren’t around during Prohibition. Wouldn’t have been pretty. Although... there’s an allure to sneaking past a shifty doorman into an illicit cove of housemade moonshine. The new “Prohibition Days” series at Next Door Lounge means live music, secret specials (hint: Facebook is your guide) and moonshine Manhattans. Sadly, it’s legal.
A Downtown Drive-In Reborn
Rooftops are good for many things—but mostly as places to park your car and watch a movie. Sunday marks the debut of the Electric Dusk Drive-In, which will bring in carhops for monthly-ish screenings of modern cinema’s most important masterpieces. Like the first one: Clue. (It’s the Citizen Kane of board game movies.)
Half-Off Oysters by the Beach
No, seriously—summer in November. Make it a thing. You’ll need sunglasses. You’ll need the top down. You’ll need a bunch of friends on the patio by the beach at the Hungry Cat, putting down half-price oysters every Monday for the foreseeable future. You can do this.
