UD - The Army-Grade Chiller Cask
THE BIG CHILL

The Army-Grade Chiller Cask

Wine on tap is nothing new. What is new is when it comes out of a decommissioned US Army ammo case. With this formerly combat-ready steel wine cask, you can store, chill and tap three bottles of white wine or rosé. We can’t think of a safer place.

UD - Riding Bikes on Railroad Tracks
GREATEST AMERICAN HERO

Riding Bikes on Railroad Tracks

In 0.75-mile circuits, this bike race is no Tour. But the tight handling, sharp turns and railroad tracks make it a whole lot tougher. If you’re not convinced, three-time Tour de France winner Greg LeMond raced and won this twice. Remember, spectating requires zero training...

UD - Trace Grand Opening at the W
WITHOUT A TRACE

Trace Grand Opening at the W

Ah, the fog. If, for whatever reason, you miss it—or can’t get enough, there’s this new all-day, fog-inspired hangout that you can duck into in the morning for chilaquiles or after work for martinis.

Wednesday

UD - A Culinary Tribute to Serge Gainsbourg

A Culinary Tribute to Serge Gainsbourg

The next segment of this underground, six-course, musically paired dinner in an undisclosed SoMa locale will transport you to Serge Gainsbourg’s France. The possibility of seeing extensive clips from his biopic is not out of the question. But, once again, we’ve probably said too much.

UD - Brisketfest at Shotwell’s
MAKING THE CUT

Brisketfest at Shotwell’s

Given the name, Brisketfest is pretty straightforward: piles of braised, brined or smoked beef. Opt for the Brisketfest Platter to get Wise Sons Deli’s brisket pastrami, Good Foods Catering’s BBQ, Gypsy Kitchen’s Brisket Voodoo and a vote for the King of Brisketfest—a noble title indeed.
