Things to do for July 12, 2012
Hitchcock on the Roof and Thomas Keller in a Dunk Tank
Liberté, égalité... the weekend.
Now yours for the taking: Gitman Vintage madras shorts, Saltbox swim trunks and Gant by Michael Bastian’s seersucker sport coat, all for 40% off. Your seersucker supply had been running dangerously low.
Two-for-One Crepes. Why Not.
Ah, the crepe. So tasty. So French. So... crepe-y. Anyway. When you get a Nutella crepe at any Crêperie Saint-Germain tomorrow, they’ll toss in an extra one, gratis. Beret optional.
Bastille Day at Bouchon
You don’t need an excuse to consume copious amounts of French wine, whole roasted pig or beignets. But if the Bouchon team’s throwing a Bastille Day party, you’re game. Oh, and Thomas Keller will be in the dunk tank... Of course, dunking him won’t get you into the French Laundry any faster.
Foie Craziness at PSC
Just when we put the state’s foie-ban brouhaha behind us, the slick operators at Presidio Social Club found a loophole. They’re tucked into a national park, which apparently makes their foie sliders legal. Let’s just say it pays to be on federal land.
Hitchcock on a Roof
The rooftop bar at Jones: now getting into the movie game. Bundle up, bring blankets and take in Hitchcock’s Dial M for Murder accompanied by warm spiced sangria and s’mores. But remember: the best heat is body heat.
