Things to do for September 04, 2014

The Weekender

Sour Beer, Bitter Beer and Surf Videos

The weekend just got handed an “excessive celebration” penalty.

Thursday
A Low-Key Night of Beer and Surf
HIGHLINE TIDE

A Low-Key Night of Beer and Surf

Now that Labor Day has officially kicked off summer, feels like a good time for the Highline Festival of Surf—tonight’s kickoff party is at Proof Lab. If you guessed there’d be beer, wine and food trucks to accompany the surf videos, then clearly you know how society currently operates.

This Bakery’s Name Sounds Like “Shoe”
THE OTHER CHOUX DROPS

This Bakery’s Name Sounds Like “Shoe”

The latest thing France has brought you: cream puffs. Choux Bakery has opened, and its baker just got here from you-know-where. She’s filling pastries with rum and salted caramel and... anyway, this is a good post-dinner drop-by to help you keep a date going. Cream puffs are useful like that.

Friday
A Good Weekend Shirt, Reborn
ARCHIVAL SHIRTAGE

A Good Weekend Shirt, Reborn

If you really want one of Marine Layer’s old designs on a T-shirt, you can now preorder it—then do some crowdsourcing. If they get enough orders, they’ll make a batch. Then you just have to create a shared T-shirt calendar so everyone avoids wearing it on the same day.

Saturday
It’s a Sour and Bitter Beer Fest
BITTER, PARTY OF MANY

It’s a Sour and Bitter Beer Fest

Okay, this is a good one. Your Saturday at the Trappist will involve eight breweries, each of which will bring a sour beer and a bitter beer. Also, six restaurants (Perdition Smokehouse, Ramen Shop...) will each bring a sour and bitter bite for you to try with the beers. Proceed.

Sunday
Someone Wants to Bring You Liquor
SPECIAL DELIVERY

Someone Wants to Bring You Liquor

The old way of buying liquor: Going to the store. Buying liquor. Kind of rote, right?
The new way of buying liquor: Downloading the new Thirstie app. Getting liquor delivered within an hour, for just a $5 delivery charge. Using that hour to focus on some important garnish decisions.
