Your Perks: 1) A canvas Banksy print. Maybe you’ve heard of him? Makes infamous street art/holiday gifts. 2) An extremely intelligently designed umbrella. No shame in having an umbrella that’s smarter than you. 3) A slew of vintage Rolex and Cartier watches. Like, basically all of them.
Things to do for December 04, 2014
Endless Mole, Bottomless Micheladas and Some Vinyl
It’s raining. Might want to bring a weekend with you.
There’s a New Taproom. Go to It.
Your Friday forecast: a warm, indoor activity, like drinking blonde and scotch ales inside of a taproom at the newly opened Independent Brewing Company, which is now offering tours with a couple of pints thrown in. Also: rain.
Brazilian caramels. Vinyl records. An all-you-can-eat mole feast from La Cocina. We’re not just naming random things you like. We’re naming things you can get at Ghirardelli Square’s new holiday market. There’ll be at least 40 vendors, so strategy is key. We’d start with the mole and go from there.
Two New Brunches to Add to Your Roster
1) Monsieur Benjamin’s: Come here when you’re feeling... French. As in brioche french toast, Dungeness
crab rémoulade and oysters.
2) The Hall’s: There will be tons of brunch specials but, most importantly, the bar will be offering bottomless mimosas, micheladas and shandies for $10.28.
Glasses and Wine. Sure, Why Not.
Maybe you just feel like looking at stylish Garrett Leight glasses and sunglasses while drinking Scribe Winery wine. You should stop by GLCO’s spectacle pop-up shop at Welcome Stranger. Because they’re offering custom fittings for their sleek eyewear and half-off prescription lenses. And because Scribe Winery will be there.
You Can Own a Piece of Smuggler’s Cove
You’ve been thinking. Your wet bar could use some tiki touches. A mask. Some barware. A torch. Good news: in honor of their fifth anniversary, Smuggler’s Cove is auctioning off pieces from the owner’s tiki stash. Bid. Win. Then come back Monday to celebrate at their all-night happy hour.
