Things to do for November 21, 2013
Pie and Turkey and Single Malt Scotch
We are the world. We are the weekend.
Bring These to Thanksgiving
We’re going to go ahead and assume someone is already taking care of the turkey for next Thursday. But ask yourself: who’s bringing the gallon jug of Black Swan’s homemade Bloody Mary mix... Or the Malai Kitchen coconut cream pie with tamarind caramel sauce and coconut gelato... You. That’s who.
The Only Sandwich That Matters
Imagine the perfect Thanksgiving sandwich. Okay, now read about the perfect Thanksgiving sandwich. It’s available at Hopdoddy and it’s roasted turkey (of course), cornbread stuffing, ginger-cranberry chutney, sage pesto, gouda cheese and bacon-brussels-sprouts salad on an egg bun. Good luck, egg bun.
Damn Right This Is a Date Spot
This is Peak Grille. It’s in the old Bowen’s Café spot. It’s got a massive wine list, a bunch of flatbread pizzas and a wood-fired-bread-pudding thing for dessert that’s covered in brandy glaze. If you can figure out a use for a place like this, please let us know.
A Movie About Bartending
We have no idea if Hey Bartender—a documentary about two bartenders trying to achieve their bartending dreams—will win any Oscars, but we do know that following the one-night-only screening on Monday at the Village Theatre, there’ll be an after-party with plenty of single malt. So, yeah, stay through the credits.
Guess the Theme of This Party...
Candleroom is hosting a party on Thanksgiving Eve. The theme is going to be pilgrims and Indians. There’s going to be a whole lot of champagne on hand. And that last part is particularly important when you realize the following day is a national holiday.
