The Weekender

A Feast for an Ox, Aussies and the World's Best Job

The weekend is still riding high.

Thursday
Your Picture Next to Obama
SWEARING IN

Your Picture Next to Obama

Upload your picture on MyInauguralPhoto, a site that'll insert your image in the front row of Obama's (first) swearing in. While it's no ElfYourself, it ought to kill some time on Facebook.

Saturday
Calafia Now Open in Palo Alto
GOOGLING

Calafia Now Open in Palo Alto

You've heard about the amazing food at Google (over and over again), but since you've never tasted it, it's all been hearsay...until now. Starting this week, you can experience it firsthand at the new cafe/bar opened by Google's founding chef. We'll even give you the address so you don't have to Google it.

Calafia, Town & Country Village at 855 El Camino Real (at Embarcadero), Palo Alto, 650-322-9200

Sunday
Australia Day Party at South
ON THE BARBIE

Australia Day Party at South

The folks at Down Under wine bar/restaurant South are firing up the barbie for a sausage sizzle in honor of Australia Day—think: Independence Day but a bit louder and more Down Under-y.

Monday
The Best Job in the World Application
DOWN UNDER

The Best Job in the World Application

Your job is fine, but you probably wouldn't call it the world's best job. Maybe you should consider the job that an Australian ad agency deems "The Best Job in the World"—living on an island in the Great Barrier Reef and blogging about it. Remember us while you're packing the SPF.

MONDAY GOOD FORTUNE

Lunar New Year's Menu at Shanghai 1930

Kick off Chinese New Year with a menu full of dishes symbolizing traits of those born in the Year of the Ox—like Lion's Head Pork Meatballs (meatballs=dependability) and pork dumplings representing prosperity. Gung Hay Fat Choy! (We're wishing you a happy new year, not calling you fat.)

Jan 26-Feb 13, Shanghai 1930, 133 Steuart St (between Mission and Howard), 415-896-5600
