Here’s how you’ll win Valentine’s Day this year: 1) Get a box of spiked chocolates for 25% off. 2) (Barely) dress her in some French-lace lingerie from Fleur du Mal. 3) Send a bouquet of fresh roses (grown on a South American volcano)—for $32. Then... commence the ravishing.
Things to do for January 31, 2013
Wine, Burgers and the Super Bowl
The weekend is kissing its biceps.
Sometimes you want to go the face paint and jersey route... actually, no, you pretty much never want that. That’s where this jacket comes in. It’s the brainchild of local guys Golden Bear and Seedstore. It’s red and gold. Best of all: it’s 30% off.
10 Glorious Courses in the Mission
Meet Roxy’s Café. Your chef: a veteran of kitchens like Nobu, SPQR and Quince. Your tasting menu: four or 10 courses, replete with Venezuelan, Italian and Asian touches. Your hunger: probably kicking in right about now...
The Year of the Snake starts on the 10th, but the M.Y. China crew is celebrating for the entire month. They’re offering two menus symbolic for wealth and prosperity (long noodles, Peking duck and seafood) along with a sparkling cider cocktail called the Stone Serpent. Symbolic for, well, whatever you want it to be.
Beers. Wings. Burgers. And, uh, carbonated tequila shots, plus something called Scotchlate Milk. These are what you’ll find at this Super Bowl party. Oh, and three TVs. TVs are key.
Endless Pinot Noir and Chardonnay
So a bunch of winemakers are gathering to, uh, “promote dialogue around the meaning and relevance of balance” in California pinot noir and chardonnay wineries. We’re pretty sure that just means you and maybe a date are about to drink some really great wine. We hope that’s what it means.
