PLAN DATE: WEDS / MAY 16
Call us crazy, but we find that our favorite foods often taste better if we dine-in instead of ordering it off Seamless (something about the food coming to you hot, and not after a 45-minute delivery route). If you feel like testing our theory tonight, head to Tepache in Bed Stuy for Mexican, a delivery classic. With huge portions of beloved entrees like chimichangas and fajitas as well as unusual but still delicious offerings like kale burritos and taquitos with beef tongue, Tepache is worth a trip off the couch and out of the house.
Now that you’re all carbed-up, it’s time to get liquored-up at Pelican. From the team behind Hot Bird comes this speakeasy-style bar that just recently had its soft opening. With four seats at the bar, and snug nooks throughout, you’ll have no trouble pairing your cocktails with mood lighting and ambiance. We like their reinterpretation of a summer classic, the Masked Mule, which combines mezcal, lime, ginger, soda, and bitters.
361 Halsey Street, Brooklyn
idk tip: Tepache doesn’t have a liquor license, but fear not, you may BYOB if you’re itching for a drink before the bar.
382 Marcus Garvey Boulevard, Brooklyn
idk tip: Happy hour runs from 5-8pm, then again from 12-2am, all draft beers are $5 and wine is $6.
