Things to do for November 11, 2015
Muhammad Ali, Jay Z’s DJ and a DIY Donut Bar
Find your weekend place.
Shinola. Drinks. Muhammad Ali. Yes.
As part of Shinola’s Greatest of the Great Americans series, Chop Shop is hosting a screening of the documentary The Trials of Muhammad Ali. Get there early for some drinks and stick around after for a Q&A with the directors. Remember, there are no stupid questions. There might be some stupid questions.
Jay Z’s Former DJ Is DJing Your Dinner
It’d be pretty cool to listen to Jay Z’s former DJ do a set. But it’d be even cooler to listen to Jay Z’s former DJ do a set while you enjoy a family-style Louisiana seafood boil, beer and beignets at Lowcountry. Which is what you’re doing tonight. Surprise.
Here’s a Fancy-Chicken-Nugget Place
You probably thought the chicken nugget was done. Finished. Kaput. Well, now there’s Arlen’s Chicken. It’s a new laid-back joint from the DMK guys, serving elevated takes on the oft-overlooked poultry comestible with tots and sriracha-honey sauce. A nugget may be down, but it’s never out.
You Just Hit the Pizza Lottery
Two more destinations for your pizza map:
Zoom Pizza Factory: The fast-casual pizzeria just opened with a sauce bar and this cool stone conveyor oven thing.
Happy Camper: The Homeslice guys’ Old Town spot has old staples, plus new things like their pulled-pork-and-jalapeño pie.
Great map idea.
A DIY Donut Bar and Trout BLTs
Sink|Swim: Come to my new seafood-driven brunch with smoked trout BLTs and fried
oyster/smoked salmon benedicts.
La Stanza Ristorante: No, come to mine. I’ve got octopus hash, live jazz and a DIY Stan’s Donuts bar.
You: Now, now. There’s plenty of me to go around...
