Your Perks: 1) 20% off the HiddenRadio—a beautiful, powerful (and beach-ready) wireless speaker. 2) An iPhone case that also works as four pro-grade camera lenses. 3) 27% off Spikeball, your new favorite beach game. It’s like volleyball... but better.
Things to do for August 08, 2013
Ferris Bueller, 400 Pounds of Meat and Oyster Narnia
Of all the weekend joints, in all the towns, in all the world...
How to Take Someone on a Date
Hey, here’s an idea. Grab a date and a blanket and head to Ram’s Gate Winery to watch Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. And eat some lobster grilled cheese while you’re at it. It’s a new movie-night thing they’re doing on Thursdays this month. Bonus: this particular winery has wine.
If You Like Ramen, This Place Has Ramen
What: Ramen. Lots of it.
Where: A shiny new noodle hut from the Men Oh guy called Ramen Izakaya Goku.
Why: Cold beer. Tonkotsu ramen. Kobe beef tataki. Varying degrees of spice from mild to “hella.” Getting to say the word “hella” while acting all serious about it.
It may not be today. It may not be tomorrow. But soon (okay, it’s September 1), OysterFest will happen. Yes, you can get tickets now. Yes, they go fast. And yes, there will be thousands of oysters prepared by the likes of Farallon, Fish and Waterbar. Hope you like oysters.
So the Tonga Room Changed a Bit
The Tonga Room. Let’s talk about the Tonga Room. Specifically, about how it just went through a little renovation. Mostly to the cocktails, though. Think more natural ingredients and less sugary ridiculousness in their zombies, mai tais and Singapore Slings. Don’t worry, that big pool thing is still there.
All the Meat in the World. We Found It.
Lobster. Spit-roasted sturgeon. Oysters. Lamb. Goat. Four hundred pounds of Wagyu beef cooked over a raging fire pit. That’s what you’re in for this weekend at the Charles Krug Winery. It’s Cochon Heritage Fire. And it’s probably best if you go as opposed to not go.
