For this week's Perk, we're bringing you half off your initiation fee and a free straight razor shave or haircut at MR, FiDi's luxe barbershop/cocktail lounge. After all, you deserve the best of both worlds.
Things to do for April 02, 2009
Gratis Scotch, Vintage Motorcycles and Opening Day
The weekend says play ball.
Scotch Tastings at the Colgate Mansion
Make your way through four floors and 17 rooms decked out with scotch, chocolate and work by local artists. Then retire to the "man cave"—a surround-sound home theater room—or the poker room, if you're feeling lucky.
When your go-to jeans gurus throw a party, you'll stop in just for the company. And when they take it further with a few beers and 15 percent off practically the entire store (including the vaunted Dry Bones SEXDBXS09 jean), it's just icing on the cake.
We've found just the thing to lure you across the Bay: the chance to sample the goods (think whiskey, gin, brandy) of 40-plus artisan distillers from Alameda's St. George to Chicago's North Shore Distillery—poured by the very hands that crafted them.
Kick off the '09 MLB season at the grill on Epic's patio with a couple chili-and-sausage burgers, a few Trumers and some cocktails from the ice luge—hey, it's opening day, why not...
Do as they've done in the springtime in Lombardy for hundreds of years and feast on spit-roasted pigs, rabbit, goat and squab paired with traditional Italian sides like polenta—and wine, naturally.
