PLAN DATE: WEDS / OCT. 17
Tonight begins with dinner at Houseman. This restaurant is all about seasonal produce with a trendy, but rustic, visual M.O. The ambiance is super laid-back, but easy on the eyes, where driftwood wall art and distressed plaster walls meet Thurston chandeliers and a metal bar top. The menu is essentially elevated comfort food and—here’s the kicker—it changes every day. So, just know you’ll be getting the freshest food in the neighborhood. No lie. However, if you need to be sold on something more permanent, they make a mean spritz (shout-out to the Sicilian Breeze).
Tonight ends at Lazy Point, a colorful and coastal-inspired bar that is as quirky as its drinks are elegant. The interior is made to brighten rainy days, with bright blue floorboards and multicolored leather booths that actually aren’t too overwhelming thanks to the stark white brick walls. And, when you’re not completely entranced by the spherical driftwood light fixtures over the bar, you’ll quickly become obsessed with their craft drinks, like The Volstead (where prosecco meets strawberries, among other things) and Bramble Rose (mixed with housemade rose jam).

idk tip: As far as bar snacks go, we’d be lying to you if we said the fingerling potato tempura with chipotle aioli wasn’t our new obsession.
