Things to do for October 25, 2012
Oysters, Beer and the Giants
The weekend is going as Big Panda for Halloween.
Parkour: that discipline of doing flips and tricks off of buildings, famously featured in Casino Royale. Trampolines: those American bouncy pads for doing flips, famously featured in your childhood. It was only a matter of time before someone combined them. That someone: House of Air. That time: tonight. Dressing like 007: optional.
Mixing Drinks with a Pro
Sure, it’ll be during part of Game 2, but for two quick hours starting at 7pm, you’ll pick up some skills that’ll come in handy long after the games are played. By skills, we mean the all-important cocktail-making kind, taught by a Jardiniere vet. Your reward: consuming everything you make.
A Secret Giants Dish at Prospect
Your playoff diet: nachos, beer... risotto. About that last one: we’ve found an off-menu, orange-and-black dish at Prospect. It’s sea urchin on black risotto. They’ll keep it around as long as the Giants keep winning. As if you needed another reason to keep rooting for them.
Beer. Lamb... Kayaks.
Oktoberfest is over and done. Which paves the way nicely for, um, Hallowtoberfest—a Stag Dining and Brewtruc production involving lamb over mesquite, endless beer, origami kayaks (specifically, this one) and a DJ. It’ll all make sense when you’re there.
Bubbles and Bivalves at PSC
This is just simple math: 20 bucks. Three oysters. Three pours in your flight of sparkling wine and cocktails. Repeat as necessary. Maybe bring a date.
