This week, we’re handing you the keys to a Ferrari—and four other supercars—for a glorious day of racing. Plus, we’re airmailing you a bevy of holiday-appropriate meats from Robinson’s Prime Reserve for 25% off. And then helping you cook those meats to perfection with the ingenious iGrill. (We’ll explain.)
Things to do for December 15, 2011
Bourbon Chocolates, Pubs and Dessert for Two
The weekend won’t stop till it gets enough.
Haven Opens in Jack London Square
In the spirit of pulling out all the stops, you’ll want to head out to this waterfront establishment for family-style, whole-animal dining. Add a few cocktails and order one of the three desserts for two, like the Baked California. Or get all three—to keep in the spirit.
Last-minute holiday shopping is best done with drink in hand. And like a genie granting a wish, the good people at Welcome Stranger will have beer and wine on hand. They’ll also be featuring the polished West Coast gear from Santa Barbara–based Riviera Club—in case this last-minute shopping is for you.
Bangers and Mash in Mill Valley
Just a short jaunt over the Golden Gate puts you in this pub-style hangout that’s like a classy British hunting lodge. Wrap yourself into a tartan plaid booth and order up bangers and mash or fish and chips—along with a steady flow of Black and Tans. Then finish your sentences with phrases like “old chap.” Actually, don’t.
A Box of Bourbon and Bacon
Bacon: good. Bourbon: good. Bacon and bourbon together: good. If you second that, then you should order this box packed with bourbon chocolates, bacon caramel bars, bacon peanut brittle and the like. Fruitcake is officially dead to us.
Technically, Hanukkah lasts eight days. However, squeezing all the festivities into one night of feasting on latkes and corned beef followed by a menorah lighting and dreidel competitions sounds pretty good. And time efficient.
