Things to do for October 17, 2013
Grilled Cheese, Custom Gitman and Zoolander
There is no “I” in weekend.
We live in glorious times. Times when parking lots become beaches, and when parking-lot beaches become venues for cutthroat sand-sculpting competition featuring internationally renowned sand artists. And food trucks, obviously. Yes, we just said “internationally renowned sand artists.”
363 days a year, you could go to Acrimony and buy a shirt. The other two superior days are this weekend—you’ll see 100 deadstock Gitman Vintage fabrics and some beers lying around, so pick a favorite and they’ll make a new shirt with it. “It” being fabric, not beer.
Wine country is so stuffy. Everyone will be so uptight about making the proper “Blue Steel” references on Saturday when you’re at Odette Estate winery’s drive-in, watching Zoolander with wine and popcorn. Tell them to lighten up a bit while you’re there.
Endless Micheladas at Copita
Just one water taxi separates you from michelada greatness in Sausalito—Copita’s got a new DIY michelada bar at brunch. Goes like this: choose one of four beers, four sangritas, four juices and four salts. Add all the cucumber, jicama, prawns and scallop skewers your masterpiece requires. Christen masterpiece. Repeat as necessary.
When a grilled-cheese place decides to get into the Oktoberfest game, it’s hard to imagine what could go wrong. Let’s see, 20-ounce beer steins, five breweries, German grilled cheese and a live polka band—nope, it’s scientifically impossible. Nothing could go wrong.
