This week, we’re hooking you up with something warm and Swedish: the Cantwell Jacket by Fjällräven—plus, we’re throwing in a gratis daypack. Then we’re doubling your money for rare photography starring the likes of Dylan, Madonna and Kanye. And we’re delivering mind-blowing coffee to your doorstep every two weeks.
Things to do for January 19, 2012
Spoonfuls of Caviar and a Shot at Some 49ers Tickets
The weekend knew Alex Smith had it in him the whole time.
Caviar by the Spoon at Quince
It’s debatable whether a spoonful of royal osetra caviar falls under the category of bar bites. But that’s what you’ll be able to order at Quince’s newly revamped bar and lounge area. Caviar has a way of transcending labels.
After a long spell of a really late Indian summer, winter is blowing in as we speak. So Seedstore’s winter sale kickoff party, where Penfield vests and Life/After/Denim sweaters will be marked at 50% off, couldn’t have been more perfectly timed. Also: there’s never a bad time for gratis wine.
A double feature of Dark Passage (with Bogart and Bacall) followed by The House on Telegraph Hill is just day one of this 10-day film extravaganza. Expect rare 35mm screenings, a few encores from years past and a Dashiell Hammett marathon. No actual running is required.
Banh Mi Bike Delivery
Maybe you’ve run into Jessica and her banh mi at the Red Devil Lounge on Tuesdays. But you might not know that on the weekends, she’ll pedal her slow-cooked pork sandwiches (or chicken, or tofu) to wherever you are. It’s generally a five-sandwich minimum, but just thinking of her biking all over the city should stoke your hunger.
You, the 49ers and Reed & Greenough
Think of this cocktail lounge as your civilized, anti-sports-bar safe haven to watch Sunday’s game in peace—or at least without the face-paint-and-jersey-wearing crowd. They’ll provide pizza at halftime—or if you like them on Facebook, you might find yourself at the game. Face paint might not be so bad after all.
