Your Perks: 1) A sleek scale that tracks your weight, body mass index, water weight and more. Thorough. 2) A bioluminescent pet dinosaur. Now there’s three words you never thought you’d see together. 3) A perfectly fitting button-down shirt that was measured from your iPhone. Your phone, the tailor.
Things to do for October 23, 2014
DJs, Alligator Hot Dogs and Boozy Shakespeare
Would you like a regular- or sweet-potato weekend?
Uniform just reaped a fresh bounty of new fall gear from Ben Sherman. And to celebrate the harvest, they’re inviting you over for gratis vodka drinks, a DJ and the option to take 20% off all their fall shoes and clothes. Or a fifth, if you like your discounts in fractions.
Aeronaut’s holding their second projector party Friday. And that’s all. Oh, but if you’d like to know more: expect to see over a dozen artists projecting films, animations and other things best described as “visual” while a trio of DJs spin and everybody drinks beer. Because it’s a brewery.
Alligator Hot Dogs. Now You Know.
We wouldn’t recommend trying to eat an alligator in the wild. That’s madness. But we will recommend eating an alligator in miniature hot dog form at Estelle’s. On a plate that includes similarly hot-dogged bison and venison. That’s right. Hot-dogged.
The Challenge: Before eating lunch at Salvatore’s, everyone in your party must surrender
their smartphones at the host stand. No bribery allowed.
The Prize: Meaningful conversation with friends.
The Better Prize: Everyone who makes it gets a gratis entrée in addition to what they ordered. Bolognese never tasted so... free.
If you walk into Bill’s Bar Monday and witness murder, witchcraft and someone shouting “Out, damned spot,” don’t panic. It’s just another raucous performance of Shakespeare in the Pub. And this time, they’re tackling Macbeth. Yes, they’re still serving beer.
