Things to do for December 20, 2012
A Weekend with Naughty-List Potential
The weekend is making snowmen out of wine corks.
The good news: it hasn’t snowed or gotten very cold yet. The bad news: it will. So if you need a few outerwear additions, hit Ted Baker for 50% off everything from roll-neck sweaters to peacoats to four-button waistcoats. It’s never a bad time for a zippy waistcoat.
Holiday parties are in full swing, and your calendar is packed. Should Friday have a vacancy, though, know that Church is throwing a “Crimmas” bash. Which apparently is some Kringle-ian phrase translating to live bands (think: electronica, funk), free gifts (koozies, T-shirts) and $3 tallboys. Santa loves the funk.
A Night of Mayan Lore. And Bingo.
Your Mayan doomsday plans: none (it’s silly, really). Still, you can head to the Painted Burro for special Mayan-themed deliciousness (see: Apolocalypto Tacos with short rib and housemade chorizo), Mexican bingo and a confession box for anonymously airing your sins in little notes. Luckily, they won’t be read aloud...
Then again, you could just make it to the Out of the Blue Art Gallery, where they’re hosting a BYOB soiree, replete with live music, art, a backyard fire pit, roasted marshmallows and even a puppet show based on Krampus, the evil German Santa. Note: we like our Santa better.
So, a Food Truck Drives into District...
In non-end-of-the-world news, beloved food truck Staff Meal is moving into District for a two-night pop-up this weekend with a special menu complete with Peking pig head for two, beef tongue burgers and stuffed sardines. It should help you get a start on your “eat more sardines” resolution for 2013.
