Welcome Stranger—the rustic younger brother of Azalea—has launched its first in-store men’s line for spring with this handsome collection of shirts and shorts. (We’ve got the exclusive.) Plus: handmade belts from Taylor Stitch, and... a few pet jellyfish. Just go with it.
Things to do for March 15, 2012
Shooting Clays, Trampolining and Barrel-Aged Cocktails
The weekend isn’t above green beer.
Barrel-Aged Cocktails at PSC
Wine, whiskey, some beers... Barrel aging officially works wonders. So as you take in the growing barrel-aged cocktail scene, you’ll want to stop by this Presidio outpost for the gin/vermouth/fernet Chef’s Ration. We’re detecting a little sarcasm in that name.
Low Country Brunch at Townhall
Regardless of what you do on Friday or Saturday night, heading here the next morning is sure to set you straight. Opt for the Southern Comfort—a hearty concoction with a sunny-side egg, pork belly, grits, collards and (why not) bacon gravy. There’s also a doctor-recommended menu, but you don’t need the medical community to tell you how to take your Bloody Mary.
When art and technology collide this weekend, you’ll be treated to everything from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs to smartphone-enabled gaming installations to a 40-foot cubic sculpture from last year’s Coachella. There will also be a fleet of food trucks from Off the Grid. The festivities go on for two days, so pace yourself.
After watching hoops for countless hours straight, you might need to blow off some steam. We’ve got an idea that involves 22 trampolines. Starting Monday, the next six-week trampoline dodgeball league gets under way. If you sign up now, Monday Madness is all but guaranteed.
It’s a rare occasion when part of your meal involves shooting clay pigeons (operative word being “clay”). So you’ll want to make it to Lake Merced next weekend, aim and fire a shotgun while snacking on prosciutto and cheese, and then sit down for a wine-paired three courser. Squab is tactfully not on the menu.
