You love your mother. But do you love her enough to get her a bottle of vintage Dom Pérignon champagne or rosé that you’ve had custom engraved with a special, heartfelt message of your choosing for Mother’s Day? There’s only one answer.
Things to do for April 16, 2015
Race Cars, Redbird Burgers and Tacos
Your weekend’s being renewed for another weekend.
About Paul Newman’s Racing Habits
You know Paul Newman. He’s that celebrated race car driver who racked up four national championships in his 35-year career. Yeah, well, they made a movie about that guy and it’s debuting tonight at El Capitan Theatre with an after-party. Advance word is he’s very convincing in his role.
Redbird’s Double Burger Is Your Lunch
Redbird. What a place. It could really only be better if Neal Fraser suddenly dropped double burgers, Thai Dungeness crab soup and pork belly posole on your Downtown lunch prospects. This just in: better days have come to Redbird.
A Fine Year for Sloppy Joes
Friday night at Go Get Em Tiger: A pop-up wine dinner with upscale “lunch lady”
offerings like sloppy joes and nachos.
Saturday night at Komodo Venice: You’ll get two types of fried chicken with miso-bacon corn and bottomless mac and cheese from Komodo’s chef and Boston’s Samuel Monsour.
Sunday morning: Breakfast at your leisure.
It’s Called Taco Madness, So...
If you’re feeling rudderless on the taco front lately, Taco Madness at Villains Tavern could catch you up. You’ll find eight tortilla virtuosi like Guerrilla Tacos and Mariscos Jalisco, along with beer, cocktails and live painting. Then you can start a band called Tortilla Virtuosi.
Mondays: Now Porkier
Ha, Terrine acts like it has you all figured out. It’s doing weekly Monday menus that are all about porchetta, sausages and platters of suckling pig. Accompanied by another menu of Irish whiskey cocktails. They must have stalked you on Instagram or something.
