Things to do for September 06, 2007
The Weekend Starts Here
You've logged well over 20 hours of work. Take a weekend.
The brunch institution just got brunchier: The mega-expansion you've been waiting for (along with all the other sidewalk dwellers clamoring for a table) is complete. Inside you'll find a new bakery section, more takeaway items, more seating and, hopefully, shorter lines.
Inside this loft party at a private downtown residence, there shall be artists, there shall be music, and there shall be much general underground-ness. Get there early for free beer and wine.
Seven 'til Seven at Abode
Through the courtyard behind Tengu, this restaurant wants only to feed you Fried Oysters with Spicy Aioli and Flat Iron Steak on a Crispy Rice Crostini—oh, and maybe a martini. Everything's seven bucks.
