Things to do for October 10, 2013
Comedians, Leather Jackets and Lots of Wine
The weekend is packing an umbrella.
Four Days of Comedians
Comedians... what is with these people? Here to answer that question: the resurrected Bentzen Ball—four days of comics like Wyatt Cenac, Tig Notaro, Rob Cantrell and Rachel Dratch popping up all over town, plus a festival closer at the Lincoln Theatre with Ira Glass. Because NPR is always funny.
A Road-Trip-Worthy Diner
Hard to go wrong with a diner in Baltimore by a guy named Spike. Especially when the Spike in question is Spike Gjerde of Woodberry Kitchen fame. In this former shoe store, expect cream chipped beef, sourdough pancakes and a mean Hangtown fry. Yeah, Google it.
Time to channel your inner Brando. Or Dean. Or Bruce. Then head to Fairfax, of all places, where this Harley dealer is having its annual leather-jacket exchange. Grab some vintage black cowhide, then ride off into the sunset on your trusty hog. Or, you know, in your Zipcar.
Bocce with a Side of Bloody Mary
Here’s how it’s going to go down at Vendetta’s new brunch. Summon a San Marzano Bloody Mary with a salami garnish, or maybe bottomless draft mimosas. Play some bocce. Think, “I really should eat.” Do that, in the form of four different frittatas. Summon more Bloodys.
Drinking Wine for Eight Straight Days
Coming up: wine all week. So, really, not unlike most other weeks. Only this one’s a bit more... organized. Think eight days of wine-and-oyster happy hours, Italian wine feasts, bocce-and-wine parties and wine brunches. (The wine is vintage, the eggs are not.)
