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
Models, Brunch and Pumpkin Carving with a Beer
The weekend is growing a soul patch.
Models and Free Cocktails
Nothing relaxes you like a nice fashion show with gratis booze. So you’ll want to hit the Fashion Industry Gallery tonight, where models will be showing off lines from Butter and Juicy as you sip cocktails and eat bruschetta with roasted peppers. Just watch out for roving bands of Maxxinistas.
Pumpkin Carving at the Old Monk
For $10, the Old Monk is giving you a pumpkin, a carving kit and a pint of anything from Guinness to Harp. We assume the carving kit comes with a plastic carving knife, seed scraper and some options for stencils. But just to be safe, you better bring your own Ron Washington stencil.
You need to get away: Puerto Rico. Barbados. Waco. Somewhere. So check out the convention center this weekend, where the travel industry is overhauling the place with exhibits, a 16,000-gallon scuba tank and a zip line above the showroom floor. Which is the most efficient way to collect fliers.
Martinis and Half-Price Pizza
Beer and pizza is amazing. Nothing wrong with that. But martinis and pizza is a different type of amazing. Sundays, Cosmo’s is dishing out half-off, $9 pies—go for the sundried tomato or the BBQ chicken—which you can pair with 16 martinis, like the infamous Sex with Jackson.
Brunching at the Common Table
The Common Table is a cool lunch/dinner spot with good food. And now they’ve got brunch on Sundays, rocking your hungover, potato-yearning world with $2 mimosas, eggs Benedict and housemade pigs in a blanket. You might say it’s the cure for the common... never mind.
