Things to do for November 29, 2013
Whiskey Infusions, Chicken and Waffles, and Gratis Beer
The weekend is rated MA for mature audiences.
A Beautiful Trove of Handsome Watches
What you’ll find at the new rosewood and glass-enclosed shop in the Fontainebleau: holiday-wish-list fulfillment. In the way of watches. Nice ones. Fine time-keeping specimens from Hublot and Patek Philippe—some with vintage pedigrees. And cutting-edge stuff, like minute hands. Hour ones, too.
This Wine Shop Has Killer Tapas
Here’s the thing about wine shops: they sell wine. Crazy, we know. And since you have a soft spot for them, you should know about a new one called Mas Vino. It’s got classes. And tapas made by Preservation that you can eat in-store. With wine, presumably.
You thought you’d mitigate some Thanksgiving damage by going to Critical Mass... that’s nice. Anyway. Spris would like to reward your noble endeavor with gratis Italian beer post-ride. They also have a beat-the-clock special on menu items from 5 to 7pm. Pedal like your caprese depends on it.
Your New Barbecue Brunch Spot Is Here
Breaking news: bacon gravy—it exists now. And Bulldog Barbecue is slathering the stuff all over their chicken and waffles during brunch. (Note: Bulldog Barbecue’s doing brunch now.) You should stop in for a plate of that and their smoked-brisket hash. You know, for a balanced diet.
Here, Have Some Pumpkin-Seed Whiskey
If it’s a traditional fall you want, sorry. Wrong city. While we can’t do much about changing leaves, we can sure as hell do something about our whiskey. Like infuse it with autumn-y stuff like pumpkin seeds, coriander and vanilla beans. In fact, it’s feeling nippier already. Okay, wishful thinking.
