Father’s Day. Coming soon to... a father near you. Thankfully, we’ve put together some Perks for just the occasion. Plus, here’s some eye-catching liquor-related charts (all the whiskey, one chart) and a sleek charger that extends your phone’s battery life by a week. Or a really Instagram-heavy weekend.
Things to do for May 29, 2014
A Secret Burger for Your Weekend
The weekend has new respect for Carly Rae Jepsen’s pitching abilities.
4505’s Secret Off-Menu Burger
Been a long, great night, and now you’re at the 4505 Burgers & BBQ window, ordering the off-menu Big Mac. It’s a double cheeseburger with a huge wedge of Frankaroni—yep, fried mac and cheese with hot dogs—in the middle. Now it’s a longer, greater night.
A Movie in the Mendocino Vineyards
Oh, sure, that old story. You get a room at the Madrones, you go to a beautiful vineyard, you taste a bunch of wine... and you watch movies about wine. Early buzz on Cinema in the Vineyards is that all these things sound like a pretty good idea.
You Can Do Schroeder’s for Lunch Now
What’s horrible is when you’re sitting around all mopey at lunch, wishing you didn’t have to wait until dinner for some spaetzle, potato pancakes and wiener schnitzel at Schroeder’s. What’s more horrible is if you keep sitting around all mopey like that, because Schroeder’s serves lunch now.
Coffee. Oysters. More Oysters.
Some shoeboxes have shoes inside. Some have De la Paz coffee and scones in the morning, and beer and oysters later. See, what we did there is talk about this new place, the Cook and Her Farmer, as if it were a shoebox, because it’s very small.
Here, Have a Venezuelan Brunch
Sunday brunch scenario one: eggs, coffee, toast. Sunday brunch scenario two: a Venezuelan swirl of sweet arepas and guanabana mimosas at the Palace. We don’t want to tell you what to do. But... we wouldn’t want you to be the person who went ahead and turned down Venezuelan brunch.
