We heard you’re headed to the beach. Here’s 20% off a custom-tailored surfboard, c/o Swami’s and Paul Smith, to help. Also: limited-edition boat shoes from Rancourt and 28% off the best damn umbrella in the world from Blunt. Hey, when it rains, it pours.
Things to do for May 24, 2012
Tracy Morgan, a BBQ Truck and Vintage Watches
The weekend is going for the trifecta.
Tracy Morgan, Doing His Thing
Tracy Jordan. Brian Fellows. That crazy dude who takes his shirt off on talk shows. All, of course, characters played by Tracy Morgan. But it’s time to get to know the real Tracy—or at least see him do stand-up. No word on what Jack Donaghy’s up to this weekend.
A Truck Chock-Full of BBQ
Hypothesis: when a great restaurant rolls out a food truck, the food truck will be great, too. Test case: the new BBQ truck from Wexler’s Back, serving up brisket, ribs, pulled pork and chicken. Conclusion: hypothesis is correct. And delicious.
This one’s for you. Specifically, your wrist. The watch-obsessed fellas behind Hodinkee, the definitive watch blog out of New York, are in town for the weekend and are selling a stockpile of highly coveted vintage Rolexes, Omegas and Breitlings from the ’40s to the ’80s. Also: don’t be late.
The good people at Cavallo Point are throwing a BBQ-soaked bash on their terrace overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge, which happens to be turning 75. This deserves fireworks, so those will be going off, too, fog permitting. (Feel free to bring a date and create your own, just in case.)
Luau-ing at Baker Beach
You’ve got your Dolores Park/Namu Gaji routine down. But on Monday, there’ll be a change of venue. Head to Baker Beach and look for the pig roasting underground, Hawaiian-style, along with a spread of lomilomi salmon, poke and poi. It’s BYOB, but you can handle that.
