The Weekender

Power Lunches, Roger Corman and Strong Coffee

The weekend doesn’t spring forward. It swaggers ahead.

The New Power-Lunch Spot in Town

Now that Siena Tavern has got its dinner game down, Fabio Viviani and the Public House guys are letting you belly up to its pizza bar and mozzarella bar—or the bar bar—for your next power lunch over martinis and Kobe-meatball sandwiches. Nothing says power like a good meatball.

Nick Offerman Presents Nick Offerman
SWANSON-ING

Nick Offerman Presents Nick Offerman

You know him as Ron Swanson on Parks and Rec. Let’s change that. Meet Nick Offerman: former Chicagoan, extraordinary carpenter, and now a film actor who will personally introduce his new flick, Somebody Up There Likes Me, this weekend. Obviously, this requires your firmest handshake.

Saturday
A 24-Hour Sci-Fi Movie Marathon
CORMAN TO GET YOU

A 24-Hour Sci-Fi Movie Marathon

It’s the marathon the Son of Svengoolie would run: 24 straight hours of sci-fi and horror. We’re talking vintage Roger Corman. We’re talking Soylent Green. We’re talking a movie about Nazi zombies shown at 4:50am. Daylight savings has never been better spent.

Sunday
Little Goat Hangs Out at Dose Market
GET YOUR GOAT

Little Goat Hangs Out at Dose Market

Sunday’s edition of Dose Market features handsome menswear from just-launched Stock Mfg. Co and... wait, hold up. This time-change thing has thrown you way off. So first things first: seek out Little Goat here for strong coffee and something breakfast-y. Then, find the nearest Bloody Mary. Always start with the essentials.
