Your first 2014 Perks: 1) 30% off butter-soft leather briefcases and bags from Oppermann. 2) A fully portable and damn-near-indestructible folding bike. 3) 23% off some wireless and waterproof Bluetooth-enabled earphones. Tangled cords are so 2013.
Things to do for January 03, 2014
Pizza, Boots and 20-Hour Ramen This Weekend, Please
Resolution: weekend like no one’s watching.
The Presidio Pizza Company Is Here
Resolution: let no new pizza place go unvetted. Resolution maintenance: head to Presidio Pizza Company. You’ll find it in the old Frankie’s spot, with all the herbed garlic knots, calamari and chicken wings you expect in a pizza place. Also, pizzas.
This Cask Is Bigger Than the Other Cask
The post-holiday-party party circuit can be kind of a stressful time. Unless you hit the new Cask to stock up—it’s twice as big as the FiDi original, with more rare liquor, more beer and nearly 300 bottles of wine. Now all you need is nearly 300 corkscrews.
For Your Torso, and Thighs, and...
What you do is, you go to Acrimony or Acre for a Gitman Bros. Vintage shirt, Wings + Horns chinos and a blazer—they’re having a big sale, with good stuff at up to half off. And then you... well, hard to imagine where you couldn’t go wearing those things, really.
Self Edge Denim, Now Doing... Boots
It’s that time of year. The time when you walk into a denim-filled store like Self Edge, and realize they’re now getting you boots—more specifically, black engineer boots (and brown-gray oxfords) from Ace Boots. They go on your feet, all handsome and boot-like.
This Ramen Bubbles for 20 Hours
January and ramen go together like ramen and January. So you have to respect the timing of Ramen Yamadaya’s SF debut in Japantown. You also have to respect that they simmer their tonkotsu broth for 20 hours. Nothing is more unsatisfying than a spoonful of mere 19-hour ramen.
