Things to do for February 21, 2014
Now You Weekend with Donuts and Costumes
Weekend will always triumph, because good is dumb.
Pork Belly Tacos from Tango & Stache
Your Friday afternoons could always be improved with some Campari-braised pork belly tacos or some spiked nachos from the Tango & Stache guys. Well, any afternoon could, really, but Fridays are the only day the guys are popping up at Mélange Market with things like that.
Great Day to Jump into the Bay...
Some people run marathons for charity. Others put on costumes and run into the bay in the middle of February. Your call. Just know that the less you wear at the Polar Plunge, the more respect you’ll earn. Common theme in your life, turns out.
Nine Fine Philip Seymour Hoffman Movies
Magnolia. Synecdoche, New York. Jack Goes Boating. The Master. The Big Lebowski. Those are just the first five of nine movies starring Philip Seymour Hoffman you could catch at this weekend’s tribute marathon at the Nourse. He... was in a lot of good movies.
Stones Throw Has Brunch Donuts Now
Listen, there’s brunch and then there’s pumpkin-spiced donuts, duck confit hash and a Bottle of Mimosa Your Way—a bottle of sparkling wine, a carafe of orange-cardamom juice and another carafe of tarragon-black-pepper-grapefruit juice. Actually, that’s all still brunch, too, if you go to Stones Throw.
Here’s an idea. Instead of considering Monday a downer, think of it as the day you go to Parallel 37 for a six-course dessert menu from six great pastry chefs—by night’s end you’ll know how celery-root mousse, Saskatoon berries and lemon-thyme crumbles become dessert. Man, Mondays are great.
