Things to do for December 20, 2012
Burgers, Fried Chicken and Whiskey
The weekend sees you when you’re sleeping. (Try not to think about it.)
In Case You Still Need Some Gifts...
... Go here. It’s a pop-up store from the tailors at Artful Gentleman, held at the hat shop for Goorin Bros. Your move: picking up a fedora or a three-piece while enjoying a cocktail and some live music. Hey, we never said those gifts had to be for someone else...
Hawaii Sounds Pretty Good Right Now
Obviously, you don’t want to head into Christmas dinner without a little practice. That’s where this comes in. It’s Liholiho (the Hawaiian-y pop-up dinner club) at Naked Kitchen (the... place that hosts pop-up dinners), replete with shaved pig head, sticky rice and bacon-apple malasadas for dessert. Maybe just invite your family.
Whiskey with Your Name on It, Literally
You stride into Hog & Rocks. You order their custom Elijah Craig whiskey. They turn, grab a bottle, write your name on it and stash it behind the bar, where it’s yours forevermore. Oh, and somewhere in there, they pour you a glass. Don’t let them forget that part.
Pollo Campero in the Mission
So Pollo Campero. Fried-chicken place. Down south, these guys are huge. And we mean way down south—it’s a chain out of Latin America. Well, they’ve just opened a new spot in the Mission, where you can pick up, say, Guatemalan fried chicken and some plantains. Bonus: it’s totally duty free.
Hey, Salt House Has a Burger Night Now
Sunday. Good night to wind down, relax and... just tear into some burgers. And look, you can do that at Salt House—they’re now dishing out a weekly three-burger menu (including a bacon burger and a lamb burger), plus a bottle of wine for 25 bucks. Consider it appointment eating.
