Word for the day: Breastacular

When Plaza-Midwood does its Oct. 17 Fall Krawl, which benefits Susan G. Komen for the Cure (that's the formal name for the popular breast cancer research group), Soul will offer a "Touch of Pink" menu from 7-11 p.m.: roasted baby beet salad with chevre; pink-peppercorn-encrusted shrimp skewers; Pink Roll (salmon and pink soy paper) and more. There'll also be some specialty drinks, from the classic Pink Lady to "X-Rated Lady" (vodka, a mixed-fruit liqueur, cranberry juice, sour mix and a cherry). Two dollars from every special dish and drink (and prices are $4-10) will go to Komen, and there'll be live "Breastacular Entertainment" from La Petite Mort Burlesque. 1500 Central Ave; 704-348-1848.
