We’re also getting you access to a lifetime of private jetting for 300 bucks and shipping you a box of truffles directly from Italy—from the same importers Daniel Boulud uses—for 25% off.
The weekend is still kind of craving turkey.
And Now... It’s Burrito Time
Yesterday: you OD’d on turkey and its related accoutrements. Today: you do the same, but with burritos. Herewith, a new iPhone app from local blog Burritoeater, which lists their top 30 burritos in the city, and shows you when/where to find them. You always wanted a burrito bucket list.
Spending Black Friday on Hayes
Black Friday. Great day to stay inside, dodge the crowds and catch up on Homeland. Or not: Acrimony is knocking 37% off their stock of Gitman shirts, Wings + Horns jackets and more. Or do: because they’re still knocking off 30% if you come on Saturday or Sunday. Decisions, decisions.
KronnerBurger Pops Up on Mission
Bar Tartine vet chef Chris Kronner has been unleashing his aged-beef burger (with optional bone marrow) madness on the city in preparation for his full-on restaurant. Next stop: Bruno’s, where he’s hosting a pop-up. No, you can’t ask him to make something out of your Thanksgiving leftovers.
Facial hair and whiskey: they kind of go hand in hand. Take this facial-hair-growing contest. You can enter one of two categories (beard or mustache), and you’ll be judged on form, style and ability to sip whiskey. (We hear spectators get whiskey, too.)
Masquerade Ball from the Le Dîner Folks
So, Le Dîner. You know: the huge outdoor dinner parties at secret/awesome locations, revealed only at the last minute. Well, they’re getting into the masquerade business. It’ll be at a TBA indoor locale (hint: it’s a historic landmark). You bring the food. They provide the entertainment. Well, you’ll probably provide some entertainment, too.
