Things to do for September 11, 2014
Coffee, Tacos and Robot Bartenders
You wouldn’t believe the weekend if it told you.
On the Matter of Your Caffeination
This isn’t going to be easy. But let’s all get through this without thinking of Miley Cyrus. See, that great roaster that’s popped up around town finally has an actual café, with pastries from Marla Bakery. It’s called Wrecking Ball, and it was called that long before... other things happened.
About That New Brewery at Your Place
Head to the new Black Sands microbrewery and restaurant, and you’ll see... neither microbrewery nor restaurant. None of that’s happening for a few months. In the meantime, there’s a little supply store stocked with all the hops, yeast, malt and equipment you need for homebrewing. To tide you over.
A Bold New Beer-Brunch Entrant
You may or may not be watching football on Sunday. Either way, you’ll be content at Blueprint Tap Room’s brunch kickoff—they’ve got a couple 55-inch screens if you care, and brioche french toast with stout caramel whether you care or not.
Building a Better Cocktail Robot
Monday morning, wouldn’t you like to be the person who said: “Oh, not much. Just built a prizewinning robot bartender at DNA Lounge’s Cocktail Robotics Grand Challenge”? Because who wouldn’t, really.
A Beautiful Taco Tuesday at El Mercado
Hard to say why Taco Tuesday is a thing. Maybe alliteration is just that powerful. Don’t question it. Just quietly ride out your weekend, waiting for your moment in El Mercado with dominoes, cribbage... and tacos. Two with a beer: $8. Or with a mezcal shot: $10. Thanks, alliteration.
