Things to do for November 29, 2012
Muji, Meatballs and Endless Beer
The weekend is breaking out the Cosby sweater.
Muji Arrives on the West Coast
Muji. Japanese design shop. Locations in Tokyo and NYC. Good place to pick up furniture, minimalist knickknacks, special gloves designed for touchscreen phones and... cardboard elephants. Surely someone on your list this year needs a cardboard elephant.
You’ve officially got two days to score 65% off on tents, backpacks and iconic S.H. sleeping bags at Alite. Oh, and if you win one of their hourly cornhole tournaments, you’ll get the priceless thrill of victory. Also: a folding monarch chair, on the house. But more importantly: victory.
Wine. Cider. And a Giant Sale.
Meet this year’s Dogpatch Warehouse Sale. They’re shutting down an entire block so you can pick up gift-y things from the likes of Triple Aught Design, Cedar Cycling and Taylor Stitch. Refuel with food and beverage from Sutton Cellars, Mr. and Mrs. Miscellaneous and Serpentine. You love food and beverage.
The Bay Brewed: probably the best indie-rock beer festival in the city. It’s also the only one. Anyway, all the elements are there: unlimited beer from all the brewers in the city’s brewers’ guild, plus performances from six bands (including Brooklyners Bear in Heaven). But we had you at unlimited beer.
A Night of Many, Many Meatballs
In New York, there’s a place called the Meatball Shop. One guess what they sell. Well, the guy behind it is an SPQR alum, and he’s in town for a night—and bringing his meatballs with him. There’s beef and spicy pork, served in sauce and/or a hero. (Meaning a sandwich, and not, like, Captain Sully.)
