Things to do for November 11, 2015
Orbit Room’s Return, Early Gifting and Jerky Fried Rice
This is the last weekend for miles.
Orbit Room’s Triumphant Return
Orbit Room closed in the spring. Which was sad. Now, the classic bar is back with a Tempest vet to handle the drinks and a new rotating menu of food that you can eat. Mondays = meatballs. Tuesdays = tacos. Wednesdays = chicken and waffles. Thursdays = tiki. Weekends = pizza. You = going there.
A Very Sunglasses-y Happy Hour
Azalea. It’s a weird choice for happy-hour-ing, we know. But hear us out. This Thursday, there’ll be sunglasses galore from Classic Specs and appetizers from Straw like buffalo wings and donut cheeseburgers. Plus: gratis wine. Bottom line is, you’re really glad you just figuratively heard us out.
This New Lunch Is Not for Vegetarians
Pretend it’s Friday. You’re looking to be happy, so you head to Cockscomb to try their new lunch. You order the pork belly sandwich. Or the bacon-wrapped hot dog. Or the foie gras burger. And you’re happy. (Please note: this scenario also works on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.)
You’ll Find Gifts and Beer Here
You’ve got less than 48 hours this weekend to drink beer while sifting through discounted outdoorsy items like backpacks, chairs and gear at Alite Designs’ annual warehouse sale. Anything there could make a great holiday gift. Meaning: the stakes have never been higher. Just kidding. They almost always are.
One of the Better Ways to Brunch
To celebrate the launch of their new cookbook, Mission Chinese Food is hosting a special brunch (involving malted rye bagels with Russ & Daughters smoked and cured fish) as well as a special dinner (involving beef jerky fried rice and scallop sashimi). Mission Chinese, please publish books more often. Thanks.
