The Weekender

The City’s Best Bartenders Want to Make You a Bloody Mary

If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no weekend is favorable.

Thursday
A Service for Emergency Wine Runs
PARTY FAVORS

A Service for Emergency Wine Runs

So there’s this thing, Rewinery. You go online, pick a wine, they deliver it. Pretty great. Well, now they’re dealing in bulk. You’re planning a party, they’ll bring some cases and some glasses. You’re mid-party, they’ll stop by with an emergency re-up. You still get to do the drinking part.

Friday
Uniqlo Pops Up on Post
UNI CYCLE

Uniqlo Pops Up on Post

Uniqlo. Maybe you’ve heard of it. Big Japanese store, specializes in nice denim, affordable cashmere, easy button-downs, that sort of thing. Well, they’re building a massive flagship on Powell Street. But first: this pop-up, where you can preview the goods. It was this or a flight to Tokyo.

Saturday
Just a Silly Amount of Meat in Napa
FIREWORKS

Just a Silly Amount of Meat in Napa

Those crazy f**kers at Cochon are at it again. For their fourth annual Heritage Fire, they’re bringing in 14 chefs from around the country to cook up whole hogs, goats, lambs, rabbits and unicorns, all over an open fire. Okay, we may have made one of those meats up. But still: get hungry...

Sunday
Great Bartenders, Making You Bloodys
THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY

Great Bartenders, Making You Bloodys

If some of the city’s best bartenders—from bars like Rickhouse, Rye and Cantina—came to Scala’s during brunch to compete in making you the perfect Bloody Mary, you’d probably show up. Too bad it isn’t happening. Okay, it totally is.

Next Sunday
Labor Day: Guns, Beer and Cheese
SHOT IN THE DARK

Labor Day: Guns, Beer and Cheese

The long weekend will be here before you know it. You should probably spend some of it skeet shooting over prosciutto and cheese, drinking cold beers and eating a sportsman-inspired feast involving lamb, lox and copious amounts of wine. Probably.
