Chances are, you’re traveling soon. Also: taking papers to work. And, we’ll assume, occasionally carrying cash. To help, Perks is introducing the UrbanDaddy Dozen, a carefully curated selection of rugged briefcases, luggage and wallets from SF’s Mulholland, handpicked by UD’s editors and available for 40% off. Pleased to meet you...
Things to do for October 21, 2010
Three Days in Vegas, 250 Wines and Dodgeball
The weekend rules all with an iron fist.
Uncle Pete’s Private 40% Off Party
It’s chilly out and you’re thirsty, so you’ll want to head to Uncle Pete’s Octoberfest sale/DJ party tonight, where you can knock back a few gratis beers and take 40% off all fall items from the likes of Rag & Bone, Raleigh Denim and Woolrich Woolen Mills. Sweater up, people.
An Olive Oil Oasis in the Back Bay
You grill with it. You cook with it. In a pinch, you hair-style with it. And now, you’ll find more than 30 small-batch varieties of it (from Italy, Chile and Australia) stored in steel drums and bottled in-house. Here’s hoping they branch out into whiskey.
Starting tomorrow, a quarter of a thousand wines from around the world can be sampled at the massive wine extravaganza known as Wine Riot. There’ll be a photo booth, a DJ and even a lounge area to rest your weary head. With more wine.
Come for Football. Leave for Vegas.
Good news: Jerry Remy’s will be raffling off three days and two nights at the Riviera in Vegas every Monday night this NFL season, with winners chosen at halftime. Tickets are $1 each, or free with a beer on Mondays. You were looking for another reason to order beer.
If you feel like doing some trauma to people’s heads—and not getting fined by the NFL—you’ll want to partake in Wednesday’s Big Kids Dodgeball battle. This week they’ll even be awarding brand-new Puma sneakers to the fastest ball-throwers, tracked by a radar gun that may or may not be police-issued.
