Things to do for April 17, 2014
Bar Carts, Churro Donuts and Other Weekend Essentials
The weekend is kind of into cottontails.
Hey, Travelle Has Bar Carts Now
Yep: Travelle has officially loosed roaming bar carts upon its dining room. So now when you order, say, a single malt scotch or a Madhattan (made with smoke-infused simple syrup), the bar will travel to you—freeing your waiter to fully concentrate on delivering your steak.
You’ve been thinking about adding a few key pieces to your spring wardrobe. So consider attending this party at Underground, replete with cocktails, a DJ and a spring style presentation by well-regarded tailor Wilfred Newman. It’s best to see how your clothes will look in their natural habitat.
Your Annual Record Store Day Reminder
Record stores. You remember them. Well, they remember you, too. They think it’s been way too long. So all across town, places known for vintage vinyl, obscure releases, autographed record jackets, etc., will be hosting everything from in-store performances to free hot dogs. Well, more performances than hot dogs.
Sure, it would be fun to act like a kid and hunt for Easter eggs. It’d also be fun to be an adult and go to a big party with DJs and amazing food and drinks from places like Longman & Eagle, Parson’s and Scofflaw. Good thing you don’t have to decide.
The Age of the Carnitas Pancakes Dawns
Taco Joint River North has two bold new experiments: a walk-up window (open until 4am on weekends) plus a breakfast menu. It will have pancake-wrapped carnitas. It will have margarita-glazed donuts. It will have churros in the shape of donuts. But, please, don’t call it a chonut.
