Things to do for November 01, 2013
Vinyl, Jeans and a Pizza Revolution
Please keep your hands and arms inside the weekend.
Scenario A: standing around Pizzeria Delfina in the Mission, watching your name crawl slowly up the chalkboard wait list. Scenario B: sitting at a bar with a beer, checking your progress via chalkboard live feed on your phone, then showing up at the exact right moment to be seated. Gonna have to go with B here.
Hitchcock, Now with Live Orchestra
It’s not that going to the symphony is boring. Definitely not. But if they were to launch a new film series—first up: Hitchcock—where they screen scenes from great movies and play the soundtrack live, well, that would be less boring. Or also totally not boring. Or something.
Last time you bought a bunch of Levi’s Vintage Clothing at Unionmade, nobody handed you a Boomtown box full of seven records representing the finest of the ’60s Detroit music scene. But that’s a thing they’re doing now. Just FYI.
A Big, Big Brunch Comes to Spruce
Spruce is going to have to try pretty hard to get you to order something that isn’t the burger. They’re going with a Sunday brunch approach, and this involves duck confit frittata, eggs benedict with butter-poached lobster, slabs of coffee cake the size of your laptop... and the burger. Just in case.
A Fried-Chicken-Sandwich Moment
This is a story about a fried-chicken sandwich finding greatness. Chapter one: you go to the Tak’s Place pop-up, now happening Mondays at Lightning Tavern. Chapter two: you order a magnificent sandwich with karaage-style chicken, Japanese vegetable slaw and a brioche bun. Chapter three: oh, just some gentle weeping. The end.
