Your Perks: 1) Clothing created by MIT grads that’s designed to keep you cool. 2) An umbrella that’s super-lightweight, wind-resistant and invaluable to you this spring. 3) A bottle of rosé from a renowned winemaker in the Côtes de Provence region of France... and five others just like it.
Things to do for May 07, 2015
Beer Donuts and Late-Night Steak
Mum’s the weekend.
1am Steak Frites
Cravings for duck egg rolls and steak frites are not bound by the constraints of time. You want them when you want them. So now, Lark’s kitchen is staying open later to serve you such things until midnight on weekdays and 1am on weekends. So show up before then.
Small Plates and Sake at Shinsei
Something’s afoot at Shinsei. For starters, the upstairs lounge got an upgrade. Now it’s called the Sakaya Room. It’s nice. And it’s turning into an izakaya each weeknight, so go there after work for Japanese beers, good sake and gratis small plates. With food on them.
Donuts: good. Beer: good. Donuts made with beer... we’re feeling optimistic. So try the new guy at Glazed Donut Works. It’s a chocolate donut loaded with pecans and coconut, and it’s made with Four Corners’ Soul Child Brown Ale. It’s quite the balanced breakfast.
Brunching on Food Trucks and Punch
There’s a new brunch in town. It starts this Sunday at Truck Yard. You can expect food trucks serving midmorning fare like chicken and waffles. Hypnotic Donuts will be there. And for drinks, they’re doing large bowls of punch. This is shaping up to be the best Mother’s Day yet.
Taqueria La Ventana Goes to Addison
Taqueria La Ventana is opening a new location with a few changes. Here’s a big one: indoor seating. So that bodes well for elements-free consumption of suadero tacos, elotes and margaritas. Sometimes it gets hot here.
