Umami Burger, Bastille-ing with Thomas Keller and Your New Shoes
Eeny, meeny, miny, weekend.
Umami Burger. In Oakland. Right Now.
Perhaps you’ve heard of Umami Burger. If not, 1) it’s miraculous, 2) there’s one in Oakland now, 3) they have a burger called the Queso Fundido with chili con queso and chorizo fundido sauce on it, and 4) there’s a full bar. We probably should’ve led with #4.
Here’s the reason why sales are the best: because they just are (deep, we know). Especially this 40% off one at Unionmade. It’s where you pay not much money for things like Gitman Vintage button-downs and Gant Rugger jackets. We have a feeling this is all going to work out.
We have a message for your feet. Here goes: “You guys are going to love this.” You can also tell them that Gimme Shoes just knocked 50% off a bunch of boots and shoes from the likes of Red Wing, Rag & Bone and Acne. Then stop talking to your feet.
Elder & Pine (that vintage-y, Americana-y shop in Oakland) is having a grand-opening party this Saturday. This means live music on the patio. This means beer, a DJ spinning ’70s music and burgers from KronnerBurger. And you being pretty happy. It means that, too.
Hey, congrats. You’re about to eat whole roasted pig, lamb and halibut with Thomas Keller. Yeah. He’ll be at Bouchon’s Bastille Day party this weekend. So will live music, a photo booth and a dunk tank. Note: you probably won’t be eating with Thomas Keller.
