PLAN DATE: THURS / JAN. 11
Think back to all the diaries or notebooks you kept as a teen. You know, the types of things you’d die of embarrassment over if anyone — especially your partner — ever read today. At Mortified, people just like you dig up their old materials and share their bad poetry, journal entries, sketches, plays, and more, all for you and your S.O.’s amusement. The show takes place monthly, find out when their next one is at Littlefield’s website here.
Then, make your way over to Freek’s Mill, a hidden gem nestled in a desolate stretch of an industrial corridor. With its fresh take on American food, expect to dine on octopus or lobster bolognese, or order the short rib for two, a perfect dish for sharing over a bottle of one the restaurant’s carefully-selected chenin blanc, beaujolais, or qvevri wines.
