Things to do for November 21, 2013
Wings, Gant and Wafflesgiving: The Weekend Begins Now
The weekend can read you like a book.
Sichuan Chicken Wings: Yes, Please
Go to a sports bar, you’ve got a pretty good idea about how the wings’ll come out. Go to a new Sichuan restaurant in Rockridge and, well... they’re dry-fried, with Sichuan peppercorns. The more you know...

Dylan, Marley and the Stones
At Lynn Goldsmith’s new photography show, you’ll see rare snaps from her years hanging around with the Stones, U2, Chuck Berry and Bob Marley. If you buy a photo, it would look great over your home bar—right above the bottle of Hennessy Black. There. Now it’s got all the essentials.
Jamaican Grilled Shrimp and Rum
You might not have woken up today craving Jamaican food. But Kingston 11 is now serving spicy grilled shrimp, jerk chicken, oxtail stew, plantains with black bean sauce—and plenty of rum, naturally. And that all sounds pretty good. Sometimes you’re not thinking clearly first thing in the morning.
Here, Have Half-Off Gant Stuff
Well, winter’s finally hitting, so you know what that means—finally feels like fall here. And Gant Rugger is now ready and willing to give you all their fall stuff (button-downs, oxfords, chinos, sweaters) at up to half off. Just in time.
Over at Acrimony today, there’s one good thing at 30% off. Tomorrow, it’ll be something else. And so on and so on, happening (almost) every day from now through December 23. We’re talking Billykirk carryalls, Gitman Bros. ties... good stuff. Stay vigilant. Which means festive. Which means selfish.
Wafflesgiving at Biondivino
Thanksgiving’s here, which means: waffles. Lots of waffles. Kind of. Head to Biondivino wine shop on Sunday and you’ll find “Wafflesgiving,” bringing pumpkin waffles, smoked-bacon waffles, grapefruit-prosecco waffles with bitters... No. Just grapefruit-prosecco cocktails with bitters. They’re good on weird waffles.
