You ditched that futon long ago, but your place could still use some key items (hip lamp, plush sectional). So don't miss DWR's biggest sale ever, with 50,000 square feet of modern furniture at up to 80 percent off. (Which, by our calculations, is like 40,000 square feet off.)
Things to do for August 07, 2008
The Weekend Starts Here
The weekend is going for the gold.
Caviar and Champagne at Redwood Room
We can't think of a better spot than the lounge at the 75-year-old Redwood Room to indulge in select-estate caviar paired with premium bubbly (think: '96 Dom or Veuve Grande Dame). Unless, of course, you booked a room at the Clift.
You'll want to TiVo the Olympics on Friday, because the real competition occurs when 25 of the nation's best air guitarists go head-to-head for a spot in the World Championships. Air-rock on.
$8.88 Grappa Cocktails at Bar 888
Taking full advantage of their address and the date, Bar 888—you know, the tavern with the most extensive grape-based brandy selection in the city—unleashes eight signature grappa cocktails for $8.88 apiece. We've got our eye on the Italian Mojito.
You gave up thinking you'd see Hasselhoff driving K.I.T.T. in person somewhere around 1987, but you will Saturday. Then check out a slightly superior lineup of Ferraris and Bugattis at this 120-car, 3,000-mile rally that starts in SF and ends in Beijing (with a little help from a plane).
If kettlebell lifting is good enough for the Russian Special Forces, the Secret Service and Penelope Cruz, it's worth a shot. And no matter how your pecs respond to the drills at this exclusive workshop, at least it'll give you something to discuss with Penelope.
