Now there’s three words you never thought you’d see together. 3) A perfectly fitting button-down shirt that was measured from your iPhone. Your phone, the tailor.
Things to do for October 23, 2014
Wine, Bagels, Cats and Whiskey. Okay Then.
It’s the seventh-weekend stretch...
There’s Bibimbap in Napa Now
You go to Napa and you know what’s going to happen. You’re going to think, man, this is just like being in Seoul. Assuming you’re at Auberge du Soleil for five courses involving bibimbap and Korean pancakes. And yes, wine pairings. This being Napa and all.

The 4505 patio: that’s where the 60-inch TV is. That’s where all the World Series games will play. That’s where the whole hog will be roasting on game days. That’s where all the important things are happening, is what we’re saying. The 4505 patio.

It’s Called Cat Town Cafe, So... Yeah
Most cafés: Coffee. Bagels. Good conversation.
This café: Coffee. Bagels. Cats in laps. See, Cat Town Cafe is filled with rescue cats, and people can make an appointment to drink catnip tea with them if they want. No, really. Catnip tea. Cat Town Cafe has catnip tea.
