Things to do for October 25, 2013
Your Weekend: BBQ, Hair Metal and Champagne
The weekend will sleep when it’s dead.
Everything’s Coming Up Champagne
Another day, another fake holiday. But this is a good one, so you can get on board, anyway. It’s Global Champagne Day. So head to Proof, where they’re knocking 30% off all champagne by the glass or bottle. Then dance around the pole, or whatever else you’re supposed to do.
Start with a few hard-rock and hair-metal icons (Dave Navarro, Matt Sorum), throw in some Halloween costumes and you get: this. A Halloween benefit show from Camp Freddy, the LA-based all-star cover band. Note: if Navarro’s in costume, you may not know the difference.
This is a really good happy hour. It’s on a weekend. It lasts all day. And it includes everything. The Heights is closing for a four-day renovation, but first, they’re letting you have at the place for half off all food and drinks. Yes, that means you can get twice as much.
A BBQ Pop-Up at a Meat Shop
So there’s this upcoming restaurant called Gristle. (Yeah, we know.) What it doesn’t have: a space. Yet. What it does have: a preview pop-up at Three Little Pigs, where you can find roast shoat, sausage, all kinds of BBQ and kegs of homebrew and cider. Maybe even some gristle.
Daikaya Now Open for Lunch
Your downtown power lunching now includes grilled eel and sizzling pork hash, now that Daikaya has added lunch at its upstairs izakaya. Think lavash wraps, Japanese curry bowls and pork belly with kimchi and a fried egg. Just pretend it’s 2am, not 2pm.
