Things to do for March 20, 2014
Unlimited Wings, Silent Discos and Scarlett Johansson
The weekend lifts us up where we belong.
Eating Wings and Watching the Tourney
We know, you’re under the weather and “working from home.” But just in case you, say, mistake Park Tavern for a pharmacy and end up catching a few games... they’ve got beer specials and all-you-can-eat wings for the duration of the tournament. So proceed with reckless abandon. We mean, feel better soon.
Quiet Down, You’re in a Club
Disco party tomorrow. You can picture it now. Crowded room, pulsing lights, DJs and a bunch of headphone-wearing people dancing in absolute silence. Yep. Because the Green Elephant is hosting a silent disco. So swing by to join the fray. And to use your inside voice.
Not that you needed a reason to drink whiskey this weekend, but the Angelika’s showing a late-night screening of Lost in Translation. And they’ve also got a bar. With whiskey. Somewhere in there is a good idea just waiting to happen.
A Truck Full of Kimchi Fries
Good news on the mobile-food front. A new operation dubbed Say Kimchi is slinging things like Korean tacos, bulgogi bowls and kimchi-topped fries. So check their location on Facebook and Twitter, then go forth and do what feels right. Yep, still talking about those kimchi fries.
A Handy Dinner Spot near the Ballpark
There’s nothing wrong with subsisting solely on hot dogs during Rangers season. But... come Monday, the nearby R Bar & Grill will feed you things like Wagyu beef burgers and wild-boar chili topped with a fried egg. You know, in case that sounds good or something.
