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.

Eating Oysters and Carving Pumpkins
A weekend can’t change its spots.
Let’s see here. You’ve got:
—A Louisiana-themed menu with things cooked over open fires (smoked rabbit sausage, roast pork, boudin).
—Beer. Cocktails, too.
—All of that converging for one night at the Foundry.
This just might work.
Knife Does Lunch Now. Act Accordingly.
For steaks and cocktails, go to Knife. For lunch, go to not Knife. Yep, that’s the usual formula. But that’s all changed, because now they’re serving midday meals. So prepare yourself for things like Reubens and Cubans and... banh mi. Sorry, ran out of rhyming foods.
You’re going to the golf course, but leave your clubs at home. Won’t need those. Some soccer cleats might be nice, though. Because this is a Halloween-themed kickball scramble, and this exists because... no idea. But there’s beer, so you’ll allow it.
This Is Where the Oysters Are
We found the oysters. They’re at this Chefs for Farmers party, where some local restaurants (Gemma, Proof + Pantry, TJ’s) will be shucking and serving many, many bivalves. For drinking: wine and cocktails. For listening: DJ Souljah. For divination: a tarot card reader. This took an odd turn.
Sometimes you just want a quiet evening, where you can sip a beer, decoratively maim a pumpkin and be judged for your efforts. How does Monday at the Libertine sound? Hopefully good, because that’s when it’s happening.
