If you're dragging all through work today, it can only mean one thing: it's Monday. Put some pep in that step with a cup of joe -- today is national coffee day. That is bound to get you excited for what else the week has in store. From Mignonette's oyster happy hour to a Michael Pirolo and Todd Erickson pumpkin fest and even a Pubbelly and Jugofresh collab. Nope, you're not still dreaming. Week starts now.
National Coffee Day
Need a pick me up? Head over to any Krispy Kreme at any point today and get your cup of energy for only a smile. Or maybe head over to local roaster Panther Coffee. They're not doing anything special, but isn't is so much better to celebrate coffee with a delicious tasting cup of java (even it cost you $3) from your local mom-and-pop shop than with a free marketing stunt from a giant?
Mignonette Gets Happy with $2 Oysters
In need of a new happy hour around the Edgewater area? Get fucking fancy with Danny Serfer's seafood and oyster bar. Mignonette's new happy hour menu includes $2 hand-selected oysters (the rotation changes daily and has anywhere from 8 to 12), one-dollar clams and $6 shrimp truffles or popcorn clams. No happy hour is possible without alcohol, so to solve that, Mignonette will be offering $7 house wines and $4 craft beers. The time is 5:30 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. Why not today?
Pumpkinpalooza at Haven
It's officially October, which means one thing: pumpkin. So naturally, Pumpkinpalooza is happening tonight at Haven. Macchialina's Michael Pirolo will be joining Todd Erickson to cook up a pumpkin centric feast. Menu includes pumpkin risotto, pumpkin swordfish, and pumpkin pie. Dinner is consists of five courses and is $75 per person with drinks curated by Isaac Grillo and Will Rivas.
Jugo Fresh Pop-up at Pubbelly
If you've ever walked out of Pubbelly never wanting to eat pig again (or at least not for a few days) you're not alone. To give you a break, the kings of swine are going vegan this Thursday for one night only in a special collaboration with Jugofresh. Think coconut ceviche, wild mushroom dumplings, and house-smoked tofu. Get your juice fix the alcoholic way, with four cocktails that incorporate Jugofresh's most popular cold-pressed recipes. Two seatings are available and dinner costs $60 a pop. You can get your tickets via pubbellyboys.com.
