Your Perks: 1) Tickets for you and a date to Luckyrice, where you’ll dine on Asian-Latin fusion and sip gin cocktails. 2) Some handsome handmade sunglasses for your handsome handmade... um, face. 3) A brick of authentic pink Himalayan salt. You grill on it. Or bake on it. Or serve Thanksgiving turkey on it.
Things to do for October 30, 2014
Beer, Pork and a 12-Hour Picnic
Tempted by the fruit of a weekend.
Like Thanksgiving. But Now.
Because it’s never too early to give thanks to the effects of tryptophan, Uncle Tom’s is putting out an off-menu, Thanksgiving-ish spread tonight. We’re talking things like smoked bone-in pork, roasted butternut squash, dressing, cranberry sauce, cornbread, green beans and pumpkin pie. Bonus: no relatives.
So some guys dug up a bunch of VHS tapes from garage sales and thrift stores, then decided to add live commentary to all of the weirdness they found and make a film festival out of it. That’s happening tonight along with pours of Brooklyn Brewery beer. Tom Bergeron sends his regards.
Important Heat-Season Intel
Things to know as we head into the Heat’s 2014 season:
A. You can now reserve your parking spot before the game starts using the ParkJockey app.
B. Hyde’s got a new menu with chicken katsu and The HYDEcar with cognac, Cointreau and lemon juice.
C. It’s pretty cold in Cleveland.
To thoroughly break in their new back patio, Steam’s throwing a 12-hour-long picnic with gratis vodka punch and grilled meats, DJs and a mandatory costume policy. Okay, it’s not really mandatory, but it’d be a shame to let your A.C. Slater getup go to waste.
Day of the Dead–ing in a Pub
Día de los Muertos. A solid imbibing holiday. Take the celebration at Clandestino Pub, for example. They’ve got the requisite sugar skulls and live music, but they’re also handing out gratis tequila shots when you make an offering at their altar. Marlins jerseys count.
