Your walls need these: antique swords, gazelle horns and other museum-worthy handsomeness from V&M. Your other Perks: five months of shaving cream from Spencer & Devon for 20 bucks. And 38% off a card that grants you a year’s worth of golf at 250 private courses. Like magic.
Things to do for August 30, 2012
Ping-Pong, Jeans and a Silly Amount of Wine
The weekend is going long.
Berlin-style ping-pong, a definition: beer in one hand, paddle in the other, getting to know your fellow competitors, bonding. That’s all in store for you at Rickshaw on Friday, along with a vinyl-only selection of Bowie vs. Talking Heads. David Byrne loves table tennis.
Self Edge is turning six. To celebrate, they’ve spiffed up the place, adding a dressing room and polishing the ’47 Velocette motorcycle. Oh, and they’re serving up gratis beer and giving you 12% off their jeans. Basically, best sixth-birthday party ever.
New Sushi on Valencia
Sushi is certainly outnumbered by burritos on Valencia. Here to change that: a new Japanese joint helmed by a Blowfish Sushi vet in the old KFC/Spork/Rice Broker space. No word yet on a roll resurrecting the Colonel’s secret recipe...
Wine, Cheesy Flatbreads and You
For one afternoon only, the former pastry guy from Meadowood is pairing up with the Sutton guy from Sutton Cellars. Which means you’ll be pairing lamb sandwiches and cheesy flatbreads with... take a wild guess.
Your Sunday dinner plans. Something simple, intimate, easy. Like, oh, 10 to 14 courses served up by a James Beard winner... at a winery. Specifically, this dinner from the Benu chef, happening at Copain Wines. Like we said: simple.
