    A Big Batch of Breakfast

    In case you haven't heard, our friends at Batch Craft Beer + Kolaches are now bringing their breakfast bonanza even earlier and better, with weekdays opening at 7am and weekends at 9am, and all of it resplendent with morning-time favorites like ham, egg, and cheese kolaches; bacon, egg, and cheese kolaches; maple-infused-dough kolaches with egg and sausage; and more. How often can we say "kolache," you wonder? Dunno, citizen – how many can you eat?

    Honeysuckle Teatime: Stranger Things Pop-Up

    This tasty pop-up event transports you back to 1985 (more or less) with its Stranger Things theme, slinging shakes and cakes decked out in sailor gear from the retro creeptastic show. Go ahead, try the signature all-black Upside Down milkshake that’s topped with an edible Demogorgon. Oh, let’s say that again, shall we? “An edible Demogorgon.” Mmmmmmmm, baby!

    Pitchfork Pretty: Rum for Your Life

    It’s not always about the goddamn tiki, is it? No! Chef Max Snyder’s excellent Eastside eatery is celebrating National Rum Month with a new program that features more than 40 rums from 20-plus countries. With rotating cocktails, flights, and rare finds sure to delight even the most jaded palate, this August at Pitchfork Pretty is shaping up as the most spirited month of tippling in town. (Our reco: Try the “Misfit Rum Flight” for one of those – whattayacallit? – next-level experiences.)
