This week, we’re sending you on the ultimate three-day truffle bender—replete with a dog-guided hunt and insane levels of truffle consumption—at the finest resort in Tennessee. Plus, we’re hooking you up with custom iPhone cases (designed by you) and delivering mind-blowing coffee to your doorstep every two weeks.
Things to do for January 12, 2012
Drinking in the Sun and Playing Ping-Pong
That’s Dr. Weekend to you.
Pheasant Hot Pockets on Sutter
This takeout outpost from Sons & Daughters is as close as you’ll get to being in a country kitchen in SF. There are 10 stools at the reclaimed-barn-wood counter for watching kitchen action—like breaking down a whole pig for the suckling pig sandwich. This is happening. Just accept it.
MO Bar’s Last Hurrah
If you haven’t made it inside the bar at the Mandarin Oriental yet, you’ve got two days before they close it, revamp it and reopen in April. Tonight, they’re practically giving away cocktails, wine and champagne for $5. Come thirsty.
In the spirit of Friday the 13th, throw caution to the wind and walk under a ladder. Then head to D-Structure, where your paddle skills will keep you on the ping-pong leaderboard. Correct, those two things have nothing to do with each other.
B Bar’s Bottomless Bloody Mary Brunch
Since the sun won’t stop shining, your weekend should include lots of time outdoors. If the terrace at B Bar didn’t cross your mind, let us remind you that they’re pouring an unlimited supply of Bloody Marys during the duration of your brunch. Mind, crossed.
Honky-Tonk Sundays at Comstock
In light of Monday being a holiday, the kickoff for this country-themed Sunday happy hour couldn’t be more fortuitous. Stop in for two-for-one bites (hello, corn fritters), shot-and-beer combos like the bourbon/Anchor Steam Boot to the Head and $6 rye-based Derby cocktails. Tuesday’s a long way off.
