PLAN DATE: SAT / AUG. 17
The newly opened art gallery and café By Name is hosting artist YangTzu Chung’s solo debut “Lilith” from August 3 to 17. The tea house aims to showcase emerging local and international artists, and welcomes viewers to experience Chung’s dark fantasy world through her ink on paper illustrations. There’s also a fog-fueled live installation component that will take place three times a day: 1 p.m., 4 p.m., and 6:30 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays during the exhibition. Be sure to try the limited edition drink on sale inspired by “Lilith” and reserve your free tickets here.
After a visit to the macabre, grab a seat at Vic’s for some inventive yet classic Italian dishes in an open warm atmosphere. Vic’s serves a well-rounded brunch until 3 p.m. on weekends, and dinner until 11 p.m. most nights, so no need to rush with the exhibit (or wander around the neighborhood)! While the menu offers a solid selection of appetizers, wood-oven pizzas, pastas (swapped for eggs and sandwiches at brunch) and a whole section of vegetables, don’t forget to order the crispy sweet onions with sundried tomatoes and dusted parmigiano or heirloom carrots, which seem to be a crowd favorite.
