Things to do for December 19, 2013
Bike-Delivered Pie, Baby Alpaca and Your Own Wine
Just need a few last weekend stuffers...
Alpaca Sweaters at Alternative Apparel
Hypothetical scenario: you’re done shopping for the year. More plausible scenario: you could use a baby-alpaca sweater and a couple soft flannels. The new Alternative Apparel store has those things lying around, and Apolis bags and Baldwin denim, too. They never put anything away.
Here’s Some Bike-Delivered Pie
There are these guys, BloomThat, who frantically bike around the city all day delivering flowers. Which is great. Maybe you’ll need to deploy them soon. But this week they’re also delivering little apple-cranberry pies from Black Jet Baking Company. Bike pie is better than regular pie. It’s science.
And Now, Create Your Own Wine Label
How you drink wine now: open bottle, pour into glass, drink. That’s all still the same, really. How you make wine now: visit the Wine Foundry’s website, choose a bottle of something nice, then create your label. Upload images, pick a name, all that. And you’re officially a vintner. Ish.
SixDoors Will Save You Now
Man. It’s so stressful sitting on the couch doing nothing. Because you’re also getting all your last-minute holiday shopping done. Flashback: two hours earlier. You downloaded the SixDoors app—it’ll facilitate same-day delivery to your place from more than 60 local shops and bakeries—and ordered stuff. So... exhausting...
It’s a Christmas Eve Barbecue
It’s a December 24 tradition: family-style rib roast at Hi Lo, with plenty of fries, yule logs and pisco-spiked purple-corn cider for everyone. Sure, it’s not a tradition in the sense that it’s ever happened before, but traditions have to start somewhere.
