Things to do for October 30, 2014
Japanese Hot Dogs, Five Pumpkin Beers and Neil Young
The weekend just served Daniel Radcliffe.
Gjelina Makes You Breakfast Now
Just in time for Halloween, Gjelina’s dressed up as a bakery with pastries, freshly baked bread, porchetta sandwiches, smoked salmon and cured fish. Wait, no, that’s just... Gjelina’s new bakery, Gjusta. The “j” isn’t silent.
Two New Places for Oysters and Dogs
11:47am: You’re at the new shell-shaped counter at Grand Central Market, eating five
types of oysters. Maybe some shrimp.
5:38pm: You’ve hit the Pier for sunset, distracted by Japanese hot dogs with kimchi and tempura shrimp at Japadog.
9:30pm: You’re... somewhere else. Not a bad day overall.
Pumpkin. It’s Better in Beer.
Halloween doesn’t have to be too crazy. Sometimes you can just bring a date to Buzz for a low-key tasting of five pumpkin beers, like a chocolate pumpkin porter and smoked-pumpkin cider. There’ll be plenty of Downtown crazy right outside.
Let Someone Else Do the Shaving
Wait, put down your razor. You should probably let a professional step in. Baxter Finley is offering gratis shaves Saturday to kick off Movember. Plus, they’ll give you a gift bag with face-grooming products and a razor. And your bathroom won’t.
Neil Young Expresses His Vision
You know Neil Young. He’s that prolific painter who does great watercolors of classic cars and is showing them at Robert Berman Gallery through November 29. Rumor is, he’s also decent on guitar.
