Things to do for October 14, 2015
Trumaker’s New Loft and Thomas Keller’s New Pop-Up
Russian Caviar for Lunch? Yes.
A challenge: we tell you about Campton Place’s new lunch, and you find a better one.
Us: You can get their duck samosa, plus Russian golden osetra caviar, or take the two-course option with things like curried shrimp naan and tandoori chicken salad.
You: This was a fool’s errand.
Just Another Mead-Pairing Dinner
Heidrun is one of the few meaderies in the country that produces mead the same way as champagne. And Thursday at Fine & Rare, you’ll find their finest botanical creations paired with dishes like oysters on the half shell and pasta risotto. Not today, wine-pairing dinner. Not today.
Check Out Trumaker’s New Digs
The past: The online tailors of Trumaker came to you. The present: You can go to them. They’ve got this nice new loft/showroom where they’ll measure you for shirts or suits, help you match them with ready-to-wear sweaters and serve you Lagunitas IPA. The future: Is now.
Walk-In Movies at the Proxy
Proxy’s kicking off its first-ever walk-in film festival Friday with Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. As opposed to a drive-in, you and your date will just pack food, park nearby, walk over, set up a blanket or low chairs, and take a seat. It’s likely we’ve overexplained this.
Golf and Thomas Keller in Napa
You’re at the Frys.com Open in Napa. On the 18th tee, you hit Thomas Keller’s pop-up for some of his classics—a lobster roll, a bacon-cheddar scone. Rory McIlroy, leading by three strokes, withdraws out of sheer jealousy. This is a fake yet totally plausible scenario.
