Amazing name. Even better headphones: Fanny Wang’s noise-isolating ’phones, on Perks for 28% off the going rate. Also, your next handsome tie, courtesy of NYC’s Graham Withers: 50 bucks. Finally, we’re giving you $50 toward grooming essentials from Kiehl’s and Molton Brown. Because we care, that’s why.
Things to do for August 23, 2012
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
