Things to do for January 08, 2015
Burgers, Elvis and a Night of Serious Drinks
The weekend is part of a balanced diet.
There’s a Start on Lemmon Now
Now is probably a good time to reconsider your dining choices. Maybe choose a little more natural this and grass-fed that. Not because it’s a new year. But because Start just opened a new location on Lemmon with fresh burgers, salads and sandwiches. Oh, beer, too. (You looked worried.)
Elvis Presley would be 80 today. So to celebrate, Alamo Drafthouse is showing Jailhouse Rock and serving Elvis’s favorite snack—peanut butter, banana and bacon sandwiches. What they’re saying is that Elvis knew how to snack.
Get a Haircut. Have Some Whiskey.
The Fly Barbershop guys—you know, that scissor-wielding crew in an Airstream—are now popping up at Rye 51 every Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. So swing by or make an appointment for a haircut, then peruse some American-made goodness. Whiskey counts.
Big game this Sunday, so you might as well watch it on a really big screen. Try the Granada. They’re showing the Cowboys vs. Packers on three HD projectors with concert sound, so it’s almost like you’re watching it live in Green Bay. Except you’ll keep all your toes.
Death & Co. It’s an NYC bar and a real pinnacle of cocktailery, and those guys are debuting their new book Tuesday at Midnight Rambler. You should go to the launch to score a copy. But only if you enjoy drinking delicious drinks. Anyway, think about it.
