Where we’re eating: Otto Izakaya
By Ariel Turner
“Put an egg on it” most accurately describes my personal culinary taste, and wouldn’t you know, the show pairing this week works perfectly with that. My favorite dish at The Firmament’s neighbor, the OG Otto Izakaya, comes with a sunny side egg, so it’s not even a stretch. Of course, if you’re not into that, the menu almost as long as The Breakfast Club’s repertoire has plenty for all tastes and appetites. Also, opt for a cocktail with Japanese whiskey or stick to sake. You can’t go wrong with that.
What we’re seeing: The Breakfast Club @ The Firmament
The Breakfast Club is like a candy-coated flashback, complete with ripped jeans, pushed-up sport coat sleeves, and icy glam-rock keyboards.
The band made an instant fan of The Firmament’s co-owner and booker Andrew Peek when it played at the venue for the first time back in February.
“I didn’t know what to expect, but their energy is NONSTOP,” Peek says. “They literally had everyone dancing and singing along for almost three and a half hours straight.”
So if you’re looking for a great evening with amazing music and dancing, this is a fun, no-stress kind of night to forget the world and remember the shiny pop hits of the ‘80s.
