Things to do for November 11, 2015
Cakes, Pies and Attractive Italians
Unidentified Weekend Object
A Timely New Cache of Pies and Cakes
“Make sure to invite your charming friend who brings those amazing chocolate-caramel mini cakes and full-size cider-roasted apple pies.” Now that you have Cake Monkey’s first brick-and-mortar store around, people seem to talk about you like that during the holidays. It’s nice.
Five Days of Great-Looking Italians
It’s time for nice clothes, a general zest for life and a date who can appreciate those things. Because, yes, it’s time for Cinema Italian Style, a five-day film fest screening stuff like a comedy starring an Alfa Romeo and the new film from La Grande Bellezza’s director. And more. Italy loves more.
A Night of Varied Indian Delights
Wait. Cancel all those plans you made for Diwali, the Indian festival of lights. Because La Cienega’s Spice Affair is about to present you with live dancers, music and a special menu with dishes like truffle chicken tikka and Baileys kulfi ice cream. See? Perfect Diwali.
Ramen, but Not Normal Ramen
The Gorbals’ Ilan Hall just opened a new stand at Grand Central Market. Nothing weird about that. It serves pork-and-egg ramen. Oh, but the pork is made of mushrooms, the egg is soy, and everything else there is completely vegan. Okay, that got weird, but good-weird.
Where the Japanese Beef Things Are
Monday kind of deserves fine Japanese red meat. No rule or anything, just feels like it does. So here’s Roku’s new Sunset teppanyaki concept. It’s the kind of place you’ll celebrate grand occasions by grilling spot prawns and A5 Wagyu at your table. Or celebrate days in general.
