The Weekender

BBQ, Beer and Lunch at Cakes & Ale

Hole in weekend.

Thursday
Lunch Happens at Cakes & Ale Now
CAPTAIN LUNCH

Lunch Happens at Cakes & Ale Now

Forget about the past. The past was a time when Cakes & Ale wasn’t open for lunch and didn’t serve you things like soppressata and Monte Cristos on homemade bread. But this is the present. That was your cue to thank the present.

Friday
Some Art. Some Beer. Some Motorcycle.
PAINT LIFE GRAND

Some Art. Some Beer. Some Motorcycle.

You and your date are about to head to a gallery opening for a local artist named Chad Shore. You’ll sip gratis beer and wine. Look at paintings and stuff. Oh, and one is an actual motorcycle. You’ll like it. Then there’s an after-party at Kaleidoscope. You’ll like that, too.

Doraku Has Something New at Night
LATING GAME

Doraku Has Something New at Night

Maybe you go eat a nice dinner on Friday. Maybe you hold out for the new late-night menu at Doraku instead. Either way, starting at 9:30, it has things like Spicy Furikake Chicharrones, which are basically Japanese pork rinds. And basically delicious.

Saturday
Your Annual Supply of Beer and BBQ
IT TAKES ’CUE

Your Annual Supply of Beer and BBQ

Listen closely. Can you hear it? It’s the sound of future you walking around from station to station during this weekend’s Hogs and Hops festival while indulging in delights from places like the Smoke Ring and the Pig & the Pearl. If there’s time, try a few of the 64 beers. There’ll be time.

Monday
Beer and Wine and Bikes on the Westside
GEAR PRESSURE

Beer and Wine and Bikes on the Westside

Westside Bikes and Supply Co. is about to open. And for that reason, they’re throwing a preview party on Monday. Go. Drink some beer. Sip some wine. Procure a new bike. Then pretend you just paid a lot for the drinks and the bike came free. Optimism.
