Things to do for June 12, 2014

The Weekender

Your Dad, a Drill Instructor and State Bird Delivered

Weekend knows best.

Thursday
State Bird Provisions, Delivered
BIRD IN THE HAND

State Bird Provisions, Delivered

Tonight you’ve got a table at State Bird Provisions. Kind of. It’s your table at home. For one night only, that food-in-20-minutes delivery app called Sprig is delivering three options from the chef—chicken, tofu and some ribs rubbed with lemon, rosemary and garlic. Technically, they’re three different meals. Technically.

State Bird Provisions items available Jun 12, 5:30-9:30pm, order online via Sprig

Really, Really Nice Fly-Fishing Gear
HOOK, LINE AND SINKER

Really, Really Nice Fly-Fishing Gear

Sure, a smooth, buttery calfskin leather case for rods, reels and flies from Ghurka’s new fly-fishing collection might seem a little excessive. And yet you find such comfort in knowing that this stuff exists now. Something to work out with your therapist.

Saturday
Barry’s Bootcamp Is Here to Hurt You
DROP, GIVE 20, ETC.

Barry’s Bootcamp Is Here to Hurt You

Some gyms are legendary for pampering you with eucalyptus massages and kale-opium smoothies or whatever. Others are famous for a history of rewarding T-shirts to anybody who works so hard they lose their lunch in the middle of class. Guess which kind of place Barry’s Bootcamp is.

Sunday
You and Dad at the Ice Cream Bar...
SUNDAE OF RECKONING

You and Dad at the Ice Cream Bar...

Things That Should Never Be Offered to Fathers on Father’s Day: job advice; Nicholas Sparks DVDs; socks.
Things That Could Make for Some Nice Moments: The Dad’s Sundae, offered this weekend at the Ice Cream Bar, made with porter ice cream, blueberry sauce, peanut brittle and whipped cream.

Wednesday
There’s Just So Much Sherry Here
SHARE AND SHERRY ALIKE

There’s Just So Much Sherry Here

For the first time in California, Sherryfest exists. It’s an afternoon thing where there’s nothing separating you from more than 100 sherries. So what we’re saying is, you need to schedule your “off-site meeting with an important client” right about now.
