Things to do for November 29, 2013
Gratis Shaves, New Clothes and Dark Beers
The weekend has stockpiled mashed potatoes in the event of a catastrophe.
Dressing Yourself at Union Market
Union Market’s already got oysters and adult sodas going for it. But this weekend, it’s turning full-on holiday market, as locals like Hugh & Crye share space with the likes of Philly-based T-shirt and hoodie merchants Duke & Winston and the NY-made Ernest Alexander messenger bags.
All Imperial Stouts, All the Time
Give in. Embrace the darkness. At least for one weekend. In honor of Black Friday, Pizzeria Paradiso is turning over all its draft lines to imperial stouts. Which gives you a chance to try beers named for Rasputin, Catherine the Great and even some non-Russians.
Out with Turkey, In with Lobster
Well, the turkey was great while it lasted (not long). But now it’s lobster time. Specifically, lobster grilled cheese time. Luke’s is now slinging them, with melted gruyère and white bread that, like the lobster, is from Maine. But not from the ocean.
All good things must end. Even Movember, and that mustache you’ve been sporting. Well, wouldn’t you know it: here comes National Shave Day. All you need to do: walk into the Barber of Hell’s Bottom on Sunday with a mustache. They’ll shave it for you and throw you a gratis Harry’s razor.
CityZen Gets a New Sibling at Mandarin
A discreet power-lunch spot on the river. Hmm, not many of those. Well, next time you have a need for such a thing, here comes Muze, the new dining room at the Mandarin. Think ahi tuna crudo, confit lamb shoulder and tempura blue prawns. Just make sure no one’s following you.
