Or... a bike ride?
Or... an impossibly warm wool coat and a steaming cup of gratis Bicycle coffee?
Third time’s a charm at Mission Workshop, a bright and airy emporium of weatherproof packs and dapper outerwear, now open. (Here’s the slideshow.)
It’s all big windows, reclaimed-wood paneling and oversize photos of people doing outdoorsy things in here. Yes, they’re in the business of making seriously good-looking gear for the active outdoorsman—weatherproof jackets, waxed-canvas messenger bags and roll-top backpacks with, like, a thousand compartments.
So the next time you plan on mountain biking across the French Alps or going to the grocery store in less-than-ideal weather, you’ll come here to scan the racks and shelves for those Colorado-made waterproof backpacks or substantial coats, like the Remi hooded blazer, made from a dark gray, wool-blend suiting material.
And hey, tonight’s a good time to stop by—it’s their opening party. This means plenty of Fort Point Brewing Company beer and Bicycle coffee on hand. But the Bicycle cart will always be there on Fridays, pouring out coffee on the house for whoever’s around.
Now’s a good time to set a weekly event in your calendar.
