Things to do for February 22, 2017
Danny Trejo Does Breakfast Burritos and You Do Oscar Parties
And Then There’s a Spelling Bee, Just With Way More DrinkingBy Hadley Tomicki
A Spelling Bee, but With More Drinking
You used to be all right at spelling bees as a kid. Then you got good at drinking. Tonight, you’ll merge these pastimes at the Slurring Bee, where each passing round of spelling comes with a shot for each contestant. This might have helped your verbal SATs.
Trejo’s Tacos Could Be Called Trejo’s Breakfast Burritos Now
Great Presidents’ Day you had back there. And going forward, your weeks will have chilaquile-laced breakfast burritos with jidori chicken, slow-cooked beef and tofu chorizo at Trejo’s Tacos. But seriously, you know how to Presidents’ Day.
The Lichtensteins Come Out at Night
The Skirball is showing its quite-significant, quite-soon-to-be-disassembled Lichtenstein show on Friday night. Yes, night. When there’s alcohol and food trucks and DJs and well-dressed people crowding around the Lichtensteins saying, “Interesting.” And the sun is below the horizon for a bunch of hours.
Congee and Bread. Notably Eminent Congee and Bread.
Saturday morning, you’ll find the Bay Area’s Manresa Bread providing pastries and bread alongside Jeremy Fox at Esthers. In the afternoon, you’ll experience Top Chef champ Mei Lin’s congee pop-up. Sunday morning, you’ll find Manresa working the Noto pop-up at Baroo. You’re free to do as you please Sunday afternoon.
And the Cocktail Goes To...
The Oscars. Maybe you’ll watch at Paley with Halle Berry (that’s a mezcal/beet juice cocktail). Maybe you’ll fill out Tuck Room Tavern’s contest ballot before surveying it over dinner from Sherry Yard. Perhaps you’ll have Elton John’s arm over your shoulder somewhere else, launching into the crescendo of “Rocket Man.” Options are critical.
