Your Perks: 1) A new pair of summer sunglasses. They’re 100% handmade and 20% off. 2) Portable battery cases and packs to keep your phone charged for twice as long. Because it’s a marathon... 3) Smokeless fireplaces and mini waterfalls. Also known as the world’s most interesting office decor.
Things to do for June 05, 2014
Chocolate, a Beer Brunch and Digital Detox
Have you heard about the weekend’s twist ending?
You never know who you’re going to meet when you’re out there buying things. Unless you go to Unionmade tonight. Then you know you’ll meet Todd Snyder. He brought beer and a new shawl-collar cardigan (from his collaboration with Champion) that wouldn’t be wrong for Father’s Day. Good guy.
Dandelion Chocolate and Coffee: Here
If you’re near the Ferry Building, one thing was historically true—you were way too far away from Dandelion Chocolate. They’ve remedied that with a kiosk inside, next to Humphry Slocombe and across from Blue Bottle. Thus completing the coffee/chocolate/ice cream trifecta.
Quality Time Away from Your Phone
Don’t worry. It’s all going to be fine. You’re going to a redwood-shaded campground in Mendocino, and you’ll do some archery, get a Thai massage, look thoughtfully at some trees, whatever—all without your phone, laptop, tablet or watch. You can do this. You can.
Oh, Just a Four-Course Beer Brunch
There are plenty of beer-related reasons why you might be hitting Triple Voodoo on a summer Sunday. Four of them involve their first beer brunch, which means four beer-paired courses of hearty stuff. Like cornbread with bacon jam, a croque-madame... that kind of hearty stuff.
For One Night Only: Diner Meets Deli
When a deli and a diner love each other very much, they’ll get together and make you dinner. The Wise Sons Deli guys—with Amanda Freitag, from NYC’s Empire Diner—decided on matzo ball soup with marrowbone, corned beef chili cheese fries and egg cream floats. Ain’t it grand.
