For three days only, you'll find a bright yellow pop-up store pushing everything from the Jack White oeuvre—and rarities from other bands on his label. Inside one copy of his latest album is a trip to Nashville. So you could buy them all, or just buy a ticket.
Things to do for August 26, 2009
Potato Chip Bar, Early Truffles and Dodger Pre-Game
The weekend is early. No traffic, for once.
Gordon Ramsay may no longer be at Gordon Ramsay, but you can still find him on TV. And since STK's sous chef is a Hell's Kitchen contestant, they're adding a special each Wednesday based on the previous night's episode. But we're almost sure they won't scream in your face.
Italy's extremely rainy season means you get your white truffles early this year—even before the Italians, since it's illegal to sell them there until September. Cecconi's has them now, and will shave them over scrambled eggs in the morning, or later over gnocchi, or tagliolini, or risotto. Or all of the above.
At this surreal food-and-drink blowout, they want you to think you're at a gallery and the food is the art—installations include a gourmet potato chip bar, a retro candy bar and…bars. Among the freaky liquid masterpieces is a Micro Basil Gimlet, arriving with a liquid-nitrogen bite formed in stainless-steel rings. Haven't seen Koons do that.
Any time the Dodgers are playing at home, drop by AYC on the way for some Scorched Sheshito Peppers and a beer. Or maybe some Crispy Parmesan Cheese Frico and a cocktail. Either pairing is $10—which, if not a home run, is a solid double.
