We’re also getting you access to a lifetime of private jetting for 300 bucks and shipping you a box of truffles directly from Italy—from the same importers Daniel Boulud uses—for 25% off.
Things to do for November 23, 2012
Fish Tacos, Vinyl Records and Burlesque in a Penthouse
The weekend is heating up some leftovers.
A Birthday Party with Lots of Vinyl
Here’s an idea for Black Friday: hang out, have a sandwich and listen to a bunch of old records. Here’s a place to do that: CD Source. They turn 19 tonight, and they’re celebrating with a few live sets, some special-release album sales and a large plate of sandwiches. Crust included.
100% More Seafood Shack
Ah, good ol’ Seafood Shack... with its fish tacos, boiling pots and reasonably priced oysters. What a place. And hey, now there’s another one just a few miles south of the original. It’s like manifest destiny. But with more catfish baskets.
An Evening of Cocktails and Pasties
What your weekend’s lacking: something in a penthouse. Here to fix that: the Stoneleigh, and some friendly burlesque dancers. The action takes place on the 11th floor, so head that way for cocktails, some Ricki Derek crooning and a handful of uninhibited performances. Your leftovers can wait.
Big Doings at Beauty Bar
Tonight, Beauty Bar turns two. And just in case it’s been a while since you’ve attended a hair salon/dance club’s birthday party, here’s a reminder of what that entails. DJs, a strict ’80s dress code and Hypnotic Donuts in the parking lot. You’d think cake... but no.
The Chocolates You’ll Gift This Xmas
Chances are, you’ll need to give some gifts this year. And for that, there’s Dude, Sweet Chocolate. They’re opening a winter outpost in Preston Center, which means more bourbon-chocolate sauce, truffles and chocolate-covered bacon. Consider your stockings stuffed.
