Things to do for January 23, 2014
Kobe Chili Dogs, Beer and a Farewell to Van Dyke’s
There are no small parts, only small weekends.
Meat Market, Now with More Lunch
Ribeyes. Juleps. Seriously great people-watching. Meat Market has everything you could possibly want... except for lunch. Well, good news: they’re opening their doors at noon. For lunch. Every day. Think Kobe chili dogs, short rib panini and cherry pisco cocktails. Also think: extended lunch hour.
Your New Thursday Night Date Plan
Restaurant Michael Schwartz has this new Thursday concert thing. This is how it works: you go with a date, meet a couple of musicians, listen to live violins and piano, eat some snacks, drink some rum and go home. Preferably with some dessert. And your date. But definitely the dessert.
A Lincoln Road Institution Says Goodbye
After 20 years on Lincoln Road, the venerable Van Dyke Café is off to go play that great gig in the sky. Swing by and bid them farewell with some live music and a gratis toast at the end of the night. Champagne always has the right words to say.
LL Cool J isn’t the only one with hosting cred. Nope, LMNT will be taking on the duties this Sunday with a telecast of the night alongside a DJ, music from Grammy-nominated Leslie Cartaya, paella, crepes and cocktails. Which... they totally cribbed from your mock rider.
Here, Have Some Porchetta. And a Beer.
By the time Wednesday rolls around, it’s safe to say you could use a drink (same goes for Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday). Also, freshly sliced porchetta sandwiches. Here to help: Macchialina. Every week they’ll be featuring $5 brews. $1 oysters. And $5 porchetta sandwiches. They didn’t forget the porchetta sandwiches.
