Things to do for October 02, 2014
$1 Oysters, Bottomless Bloodys and Nats Parties
It’s deep, and I don’t think it’s weekend.
$1 Oysters Is Just the Beginning
It can be tough to get motivated at 3:30pm. Consider this your motivation: $1 oysters at Pop’s SeaBar, plus all beers for $3 and all cocktails, like their take on an Orange Crush, for $5. And on weekends, they’ll repeat it all starting at midnight. It can be tough to get motivated then, too.
DIY Pizzas from Graffiato
It’s time to take credit for Mike Isabella’s pizza recipes. All month, you can preorder a pizza kit from Graffiato that’ll have you stretching a round of dough and topping it with stuff like ricotta, taleggio, prosciutto and black-pepper honey. Toss the dough in the air. Make a show of it.
A Burger Topped with a Sausage
Going to be a big weekend. Baseball playoffs. Football. And Shake Shack burgers topped with bacon-cheddar bratwurst and beer-marinated shallots. In fact, they’re rolling out plenty of brat options, along with apple-strudel shakes and German chocolate concretes. And beer.
An Outdoor Nats Watch Party
Even if you didn’t get a ticket to Game 1, you’re still not about to spend the day at work. So head to the Fairgrounds across the street, where they’re simulcasting the game on a 16-by-16-foot screen. You’ll also find a hot dog cart, two food trucks and $5 drinks from the third through seventh innings.
Your Bloody Mary Cup Runneth Over
The Bloody Mary is turning 80. Here’s two ways to celebrate:
1. Go to the St. Regis’s Bloody Mary brunch, where a Bloody cart will turn out five versions.
2. Go to Del Campo’s new unlimited brunch, which’ll have a bottomless Bloody throwdown among four bartenders.
Bonus way: go to both.
