Things to do for December 12, 2014
Eggnog on Tap and Thomas Keller’s Ugly Sweater Party
Here comes another ugly weekend party.
Get Your Eggnog on Tap
Good eggnog is hard to come by. Good eggnog on tap? Well, that’s damn near imposs—wait. This just in: there’s a creamy-cognac-and-rye-whiskey concoction flowing at Novela’s. You don’t usually get this excited about eggnog, but taps make everything better.
A Wine Bar with a Dozen Bruschettas
There’s a little-known cure for this bleak weather: Slovenian whites, lamb-shank sandwiches and 12 kinds of bruschetta. Go find it at the Mission’s newest wine bar. Feeling better already.
Timbuk2 is hosting a massive sample sale at their HQ. What that means: 50% to 70% off all their messenger bags, backpacks, totes and accessories, including samples and one-of-a-kind gear. Find perfect winter packs. Shop only for yourself. Feel zero remorse.
If you show up to Ad Hoc this Sunday in a reindeer sweater, toy in hand, you’re... not doing it wrong. There’ll be a gratis drink added to your four-course feast inspired by A Christmas Story. And the toy is to donate. And it probably shouldn’t be a BB gun.
Beer and mulled wine. Raclette and savory hand pies. Cheese and more cheese. Festivus will be in full swing at Mission Cheese. Festivus poles aren’t exactly frowned upon, if you’re not afraid of some complicated arrival logistics.
