Your Perks: 1) A cutting-edge scale that measures your body mass index, fat ratio, muscle mass... and, oh, weight. 2) A pocket-friendly phone battery charger. Stocking-size, we might add. 3) All the Rolex and Cartier watches a person could want. In gifting terms, the showstopper.
Things to do for November 28, 2014
Hog Island Oysters, Bocce and Fire Pits
The weekend leftovers are on the bottom shelf, under the pie, behind the yams.
Post-Thanksgiving Oysters and Beer
The last thing you want to do the day after Thanksgiving is eat. Unless it’s fresh Hog Island oysters coupled with $5 Lagunitas pilsners. In which case, the first thing you want to do is eat.

Hard to remember all the details of your last trip to Nite Cap. For many reasons. Which is completely fine, because after a two-year hiatus, the Tenderloin dive bar is back, neon sign and all. Go. Reminisce over a few shot-and-beer configurations. Make some new memories. Try and remember them...
You’re Not Pedaling Hard Enough
Safe to assume you might want a little exercise this weekend. After all the... well, you know. And also all the... yeah, that, too. Anyway, Flywheel is here, and it’s a spin class, sure, but competitive—everybody’s workout stats are displayed on a big screen. Recent turkey consumption remains private.
Meatballs, Aquavit and Other Things
We say Scandinavian feast, you shouldn’t automatically assume there will be Swedish meatballs. Pläj is doing five-course, family-style feasts of spiced wine, Christmas ham, aquavit and dill caviar. And okay, fine—Swedish meatballs.
