Things to do for February 20, 2014
Oysters, an Arcade Bar and Lunch with Ferran Adrià
All hands on the weekend.
The Year’s Most Expensive Lunch Tab
Okay, you’re not really spending $695 on lunch. It’s a $70 lunch that happens to include a $625, 2,700-page book from superchef Ferran Adrià: elBulli, 2005-2011. He’ll be there, too—talking, signing books, sipping wine, eating Catalonian tapas beside you. It’s the least he could do.
The Blues. Now Available with Oysters.
The blues is something you just feel way down deep in your soul. Way down deep. Frankly, it’s not entirely dissimilar to the way you feel about fresh oysters. Fortuitously, these things are now joining forces at a new live blues night in a Noble Square oyster joint. Your soul thanks you.
Vintage Pinball, Meet Draft Beer
This new arcade bar, a former record store/video game museum, has three rooms replete with 40 rare video games, 30 vintage pinball machines, 20 beers on tap and quirky booze like a South African wine that’s served in a beer bottle. Plus just an infinite amount of beeping.
Poutine: it’s not just for drunken Quebecois anymore. In fact, at this event, you’ll find places like the Gage and Le Bouchon putting their best culinary spins on the classic dish of gravy-soaked fries and cheese curds. Basically, it’s the Olympic sport they forgot to include.
A powerful drive. A true putt. A taste for cold beer and/or pisco sour marshmallows. You’ll need all of these when Fairways lays out a six-course beer dinner with a few independent breweries. Golf simulators will be at your disposal to work off that beer and/or marshmallows.
