Things to do for September 19, 2013
Ramen Burgers, the Return of Rathbun’s and Mardi Gras in September
Only you can prevent weekend fires.
Party in the Kitchen. It’s Back Again.
Option #1: jumping around to places like Lure, Murphy’s and King + Duke in one night. Option #2: going to this year’s Party in the Kitchen. Chefs will cook for you. Bartenders will make drinks for you. DJs will have stupid names for you. To clarify: option #1 is bad.
Become Less Naked After Going Here
The timing is impeccable. Right when it starts feeling like fall, Miller Brothers has a Peter Millar fall trunk show with things you need. Quilted vests. Italian wingtips. Bunch of stuff like that. Also, they’re taking 20% off advance spring orders. But that feels pretty ambitious.
Where to Get a Ramen Burger
Miso Izakaya just started making ramen burgers. They’re... burgers with ramen noodles for buns. And the procuring process goes thusly: 1) Preorder yours by 9:30pm (they only make 20 per night). 2) Sit at the bar (they’re only available there). 3) Some type of getting-really-excited scenario sounds about right.
Rathbun’s Is Back. Act Accordingly.
On July 4, there was a fire in Rathbun’s kitchen. It wasn’t ideal. But there’s a silver lining: it’s reopening tomorrow with a new kitchen and a revamped menu (beef carpaccio, charred octopus...). Which is all very ideal.
Mardi Gras in September. Beautiful.
This weekend, you’re pretending it’s Mardi Gras. Because you like Mardi Gras. But also because there’ll be a New Orleans jazz band, po’boys from Just Loaf’n and relevant decorations (beads, semi-creepy purple-and-green masks...) all set up at the Masquerade. Guess you won’t have to pretend after all.
