Things to do for May 02, 2014
Coffee. Oysters. Burgers. Weekend.
If Pharrell wears a hat at the Kentucky Derby, does it make a weekend?
This Coffee Is Called Fearless Coffee
They say coffee is the most important sandwich of the day. Or you thought that’s what someone said, before you had your Mr. Espresso brew from Fearless—it’s the new café from the woman behind Il Cane Rosso. And yes, it’s got sandwiches. Spinach-and-mushroom-frittata sandwiches.
Endless Crawfish Boils Start... Now
You know what’s fancy: crawfish boils. Go to AlaMar and you’ll see. It’s nice, but you order your seafood—maybe crawfish with sausage and Meyer-lemon-pepper sauce—by the pound. After all that, hit the copper sink right in the dining room. The time for dining room sinks is... sometimes.
Why, Yes, It Is a Massive Alley Party
Sometimes it’s nice to get things done early. Like a big project at work, or celebrating Cinco de Mayo on May 2. The Aventine party is back, with all the alley DJs, food trucks and tequila specials you always expect from a Friday—but only get on this Friday.
Where Croissant French Toast Is Hiding
Move along. Nothing to see here. Just a homey little diner from the Little Griddle owners, with slow-moving fans over tables of croissant french toast and burgers stuffed with house-fried potato chips. You definitely don’t want to tell everyone you know. Then you’d have to wait longer for a table.
At Hog & Rocks: Derby Day Oyster Fest
Two minutes. That’s the entirety of the Kentucky Derby, but just 1/135th of your time enjoying seersucker, juleps and fried oyster po’boys at the Hog & Rocks Derby Day party. Time management is critical here.
