Weekly Planner: Record Store Day, Tarot Cards and Cocktails, Eataly's Tuscan Pop-up and More
Record Store Day at Lost Lake
In honor of Record Store Day on April 22 and in the spirit of friendly community spirit, Lost Lake is opening its doors early at noon and partnering with its neighbor, Bric-a-Brac Records. While the tiki bar gets going early, the record store will celebrate with a lineup of DJs all afternoon.
Limited Time Ramen at Strings
Before the summer heats shows up and ramen cravings make way for cooler treats, be sure and swing by Strings Ramen for a nourishing taste of spring via their new limited-time gyu ramen. The handiwork of executive chef Katie Dong and available only through the end of May, this comforting creation contains beef brisket, freshly diced mountain yams, fried tofu puffs, soft-boiled eggs, scallions, spicy douban sauce, sesame seeds, beef broth and of course Strings’ famous housemade noodles.
Tarot Cards at Revival Food Hall
For those who like a cocktail with their tarot, Revival Food Hall has just the occasion for you. The Loop hall is hosting a special tarot card reading event on April 27 from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m., wherein attendees can get their cards read by Rebecca Schoenecker. While this seasoned reader offers guidance and insight into your future, there will also be a live DJ to mellow the mood, along with cocktails from Revival Cafe-Bar. The readings can be purchased on-site for $20, which includes a three-card reading and a cocktail.
Happy Hour at Intro
Sure to be one of the tastiest happy hours in town, Intro has joined ranks with its new bargain promo running every Friday from 5:30 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. An apt way to wind down the week and start the weekend in style, happy hour includes half-priced select cocktails, specially priced beer and wine, and a lounge menu with dishes like fried chicken bao, lobster dumplings and pork belly bao.
Ristorante Toscano at Eataly
Next up in Eataly’s ongoing pop-up restaurant series is an homage to Tuscany, and this weekend is your last opportunity to try it. The weekend-only popup, located on Eataly’s second floor, is called Ristorante Toscano, and it features regional dishes like Florence-style steak, octopus, braised rabbit, fresh pasta and lots more. Plus plenty of Tuscan wines of course.
