Resolutionary War
Introducing Your Anti-Resolutions

And now, the cycle begins again. Once the clock strikes midnight next week, you’ll spit out that champagne, get a good night’s rest and become a completely new, bright-eyed person. Well... maybe. And on the off chance that actually happens—below, a few indulgences to partake in beforehand...

UD - $1,200 Sashimi by a Nobu Alum

THE STAIRMASTER

$1,200 Sashimi by a Nobu Alum

First, you’ll leave the city for the peninsula. Second, you’ll indulge in a seven-step staircase involving lobster sashimi topped with a 24-karat gold leaf, caviar and Wagyu shabu-shabu. You should know it’s all prepped by a Nobu vet of 20 years. Note: no actual stair-climbing is required.

$1,200, available at Katsu, 160 W Main St, Los Gatos, 408-354-0712
UD - Baskets Full of Champagne and Caviar

CAVIAR DREAMS

Baskets Full of Champagne and Caviar

There’s no replicating the French Laundry’s notorious Champagne & Caviar Pairing course. But this set comes close: it’s stocked with caviar, blanc de blancs and a blini mix prepared by the French Laundry kitchen (with two mother-of-pearl caviar spoons) in a leather box. You knew there’d be mother-of-pearl.

$1,000, available from The French Laundry
UD - Almanac’s Dandelion Chocolate Beer

COCOA PUFFS

Almanac’s Dandelion Chocolate Beer

You like chocolate. You like beer. So... you’ll probably like this: a chocolate beer made with 50 pounds of Dandelion Chocolate’s cacao nibs per batch. We’re no math majors, but... that sounds like a lot. Chocolate milk won’t know what hit it.
411:
Available on tap at The Sycamore (bottles in January), 2140 Mission St (between 17th and 18th), 415-252-7704
UD - Bridge-to-Bridge Views from Bed

BRIDGING THE GAP

Bridge-to-Bridge Views from Bed

Sometimes, decadence is as simple as staying in bed. A bed that also entitles you to a helicopter ride, dinner with gin pairings and spa treatments. Not to mention an epic view. Like we said: simple.
411:
$2,500, available at Mandarin Oriental, 222 Sansome St (at Pine), 415-276-9888
UD - Horsehide Jackets at Self Edge

HORSE PLAY

Horsehide Jackets at Self Edge

So Self Edge teamed up with Himel Brothers leather out of Toronto (that legendary leather town) to make this limited-run horsehide jacket. It’ll set you back two grand, look great when you ride a motorcycle and single-handedly get you uninvited to PETA’s holiday party.

$1,950, available at Self Edge, 714 Valencia St (at 18th), 415-558-0658
