Things to do for May 15, 2014
Pig Roasts, 200 Beers and Just a Hint of Nudity
One time, at weekend...
Tonight: Burgers, Beer and Vodka
This evening, Full Circle Tavern celebrates one year of existence. And they’re doing so with sliders, vodka and Brooklyn Lagers, each for a circle-themed price of $3.60. Also, there will be an ’80s band. No circle theme there, just thought you should know.
You know burlesque. Feather boas and pasties and dancing and that’s about it. Unless you’re talking about Cirque du Burlesque. In that case, throw in some acrobatic pole performances, contortionists and a circus poodle. Which... sure.
Come Hungry. A Whole Pig’s at Stake.
On Saturday, Barter is roasting a whole pig over an open fire, which seems like a fine use of both pigs and fires. So swing by for unlimited pork and rice and beans, plus a couple of tequila-beer cocktails. To be clear, those will not be roasted over an open fire.
Brunch. At a Sushi Joint.
“Let’s get some brunch at the sushi place” is not a thing you’re used to saying. But try saying it this Sunday, because Zen has quietly launched brunch. On the menu: things like smoked salmon benedict and chicken and waffles. A couple of sushi brunch classics.
Heading to Bishop Arts for 200 Beers
Anything with funnel cakes and soft pretzels probably warrants your attention. But you’re going to Brew Riot for 200 beers from 60-plus brewers. They’re all piling into Bishop Arts for a block-party-style tasting/judging. Sounds like tax-deductible research to us.
