Things to do for June 15, 2012
The US Open, Donuts and Lots of Gin
Luke, I am your weekend.
The Olympic Club in Your Pocket
So. About that little golf tournament going on. This app—the USGA’s official one—keeps you abreast of the goings-on via live video streaming and a live updating leaderboard. It’ll also describe each hole, complete with flyover video. It will not get Bubba Watson to record your voicemail message.
Clams and Scotch in Oakland
A new weapon in your pre–Fox Theatre dinner arsenal: Hopscotch. This diner-style bistro will fill you with escargot/bone-marrow gratin, beer-steamed clams and duck-fat chips. Oh, and ample pours of scotch. Can never have too many of those.
Bob’s Donuts: Now Tweeting
Today in hilariously gratuitous Twitter feeds: this one, which exactingly documents the precise moment when donuts emerge from Bob’s beloved fryer. It’s basically like watching poetry in the making.
This Richmond shop’s taking 20% off everything in the store, just for Dad (or, you know, you). We’re talking Tanner Goods belts, Raleigh Denim jeans, Golden Bear jackets and Otter Wax. If you’re hell-bent on ties, they’ve got those, too.
31 Gins and Counting
Gin and tonics: easy enough. But if you’re looking to branch out (and why not), this is where to start. They’ve got roughly 31 gins and a rotating assortment of tonics (including some house ones), so you can customize your own. It’s like the Baskin-Robbins of gin.
