PLAN DATE: WEDS / FEB. 20
No, we’re not talking about that half funny, half creepy viral video with the song your roommate wouldn’t stop singing. Too Many Cooks is a weekly free comedy show held at Lucky Jack’s, a low key Irish pub. No guarantees on what the lineup’s ratio of funny to creepy is, but you’re likely in good hands as the show’s hosts have credits from Comedy Central, Just for Laughs, Showtime, and Night Train with Wyatt Cenac. The talent includes both upcoming comedians and seasoned veterans, so with the low price of free, you’re sure to get your money’s worth and then some.
After working up a sweat, make La Flaca your late night spot. This low-key Mexican eatery is casual, but not boring, with colorful decorations strewn about the bar and a hip crowd that keeps piling in long after midnight. They have inventive cocktails and a killer 80s playlist that will make you forget you’re not still at the bar. That is until your food comes and the angels sing an ode to cojita-covered elote, slow-cooked pork tacos, and baskets upon baskets of warm tortilla chips with fresh salsa.
