Things to do for October 16, 2014
Sausage, Shirts and Stumptown
The weekend is about to introduce a deus ex machina.
First comes the party, naturally. That’s tonight. Then comes the part of the Clark & Madison pop-up where you grab a gratis cup of Stumptown and consider picking up a handsome whiskey-colored weekender bag, some pocket squares and a tote made out of old sails. That part’s not bad either.
About Your Custom Gitman Vintage Shirt
If you’re at Acrimony’s event on Saturday, the one where they’ll have more than 200 deadstock, small-batch and archived fabrics lying around just dying to become a shirt that works on you and only you, it would be kind of heartless to leave and crush some innocent fabric’s dreams.
A Dinner Thing with Jacques Pépin
You are cordially invited to the Stag Dining Group’s latest little get-together. No big deal, just you, Jacques Pépin and five courses of ratatouille, sea urchin brandade and crêpes suzette. You just need the password for tickets: it’s “pepin.” It was that or “1234.”
A Pretty Stellar Brunch at Plin
Three words: Brunch at Plin.
Nineteen more: Let’s see, baked egg over polenta. Baked french toast with mascarpone cheese and roasted pecans. Sweetbread omelets. Bottomless Bloodys.
And about those last two: They seem especially important.
First, the bad news: it’s no longer oyster season. Not in terms of Bar Agricole’s happy hour, anyway. There. Now you must be hungry for the good news. It involves $2 sausages (this week is pork) and $3 beers. All day on Sunday. See? The bad news seems less bad now.
