Things to do for August 28, 2014

The Weekender

Lobster Rolls, Wine and Pinball

The weekend is operating on a gin-based currency.

Thursday
Send a Bottle Over. From the Internet.
GET YOUR GRUV BACK

Send a Bottle Over. From the Internet.

Say your friend just booked a celebratory Alta dinner, but you can’t make it. This’ll help: visit the new Gruv website, check out the restaurant’s (great) wine list and buy her a bottle. She’ll get an email that the bottle will be waiting for her. You could also text her or something.

Available now via Gruv

Saturday
Addendum Is Back. With Lobster Rolls.
WE ALL ROLL ON TOGETHER

Addendum Is Back. With Lobster Rolls.

Good news. Addendum is back up and running after the earthquake. What this means for your Napa holiday-weekend getaway: lobster rolls. Those legendary lobster rolls. They’re making a lot of them this weekend. Which is so funny, because you have a mouth. Small world.

Thu-Sat and Mon, 11am-2pm, Addendum, 6476 Washington St (near Oak), Yountville, 707-944-1565, order here

200 Wineries and Half-Off Denim. Uh...
GOOD TASTE

200 Wineries and Half-Off Denim. Uh...

What you probably know about Taste of Sonoma: 200 wineries. 60 chefs. You know. The good kind of math.
What you probably hadn’t considered: You should definitely hit the Mercantile Shop nearby. Their closing sale means denim, vintage shirts and flasks at 50% off. That kind of math isn’t bad either.

Sunday
Coffee, Star Trek and Pinball. All Here.
BEAN ME UP

Coffee, Star Trek and Pinball. All Here.

Finally, Scarlet City exists. You’d looked and looked, but hadn’t been able to find a good Pixar-adjacent espresso bar with a couple of pinball machines and a gentle Star Trek theme to take a first date to and see how they react. Best to know their Star Trek stance up front.

Now open, Scarlet City, 3960 Adeline St (near 40th), Emeryville

Monday
Popcorn and a Movie on a Terrace
COMING ATTRACTION

Popcorn and a Movie on a Terrace

Here’s one way to close out the holiday weekend: wrapped in a two-person blanket on a terrace, with cocktails, hot chocolate and popcorn in your immediate vicinity while you catch Chasing Mavericks, that surf-legend biopic filmed nearby. Let’s ignore the other ways for now.
