Things to do for July 20, 2016
A Randolph Row Pop-Up, a Night Market and a Very Hidden Cocktail LoungeBy Sam Eichner
Follow the yellow brick weekend.
Gin Push-Pops. Funnel Cakes. Super.
A pop-up restaurant called Nosh & Booze opens today on Randolph Row in a bi-level space with a sunny
patio. Herewith, a breakdown...
The Nosh: Ale-braised corned beef Reubens. Duck-fat popcorn. Funnel cakes. Other delicious things.
The Booze: Highballs, rum punch and push-pops that employ gin and Chartreuse.
The Name: ...
Everything You Like Is Here
Stop us when you read something you don’t like: Revolution beer, Korean tacos, Thai fried-chicken sandwiches, combing through records, gin-infused aftershave, live music, having fun, all of these things at the Sauced Summer Night Market. Fine, we’ll stop ourselves.
If Their Dinner Is Anything Like Their Breakfast...
By now, you’ve probably heard of the legendary lox-and-bagel operation at Snaggletooth. What you probably haven’t heard: tomorrow night, they’re trying their hand at dinner for the first time (it’s BYO) with some oysters, tuna crudo and various small plates. Godspeed, Snaggletooth. We believe in you.
Day Date Idea Number Whatever: This.
Future reviews of this year’s Andersonville Summer Sidewalk Sale...
Your Date: It was delightful. We hit the bookstore, rummaged through funky clothes at Crossroads Trading, bought an interesting-looking furnishing from Mercantile M and finished the day with a glass of wine at Appellation. A+.
You: Really great date idea.
This Liquor Store Has a Secret. Hint: It’s a Bar.
Next time you’re at Red Star Liquors, buying beer or whatever, you may find yourself wandering through a cooler door that leads not to a cooler, but to a low-key lounge in a century-old building called the Walk-In, replete with rum Negronis and bonded bourbon drinks. You’ll drink some. The end?
