Your Perks: 1) A custom, fully canvassed two-piece suit from a fine Italian tailor. 2) One of these vintage watches. Or two of these vintage watches. You’ve got enough wrists. 3) A monthly subscription to get world-class cigars delivered to your door. Smoke ’em ’cause you’ve got ’em.
Things to do for December 18, 2014
A Sub-Shop Party, Ritual Coffee and Maybe Some Exercise
You’ve been summoned for weekend duty.
A Shop Filled with Great Things
You know The Thing. Not that thing. Or that thing. This Thing: the artsy mag that has just made a shop. It’s called the Shop. In it: lots of last-minute-gifty art things, Grateful Dead pins, shrunken Sleepy Jones robes, vintage alarm clocks... the operative word here is “quirky.” Proceed accordingly.
This App Wraps and Ships Your Gifts
Buying presents is easy. It’s the wrapping and the delivering that make it complicated. Which is why you have Shyp. This on-demand service will pick up your presents, wrap them up nicely and ship them out for you. Guess that solves that.
Yes, It’s Supposed to Be Green
First, think about all the ham and nog you’ll be consuming next week. Now, think about how a look inside SoMa’s new SoulCycle and a green-colored drink from the also-new Pressed Juicery window next door might not be the worst idea ever. You can return to your other thoughts now.
A Holiday Party in a Sub Shop
When you’re invited to a holiday party involving beer, wine, a craft fair (stay with us here) and massive subs, the polite thing to do is attend. It’s at Merigan Sub Shop, you’re invited, and you’re definitely not going for the subs. Just going to be polite.
You Can Get Ritual Coffee in FiDi Now
A handful of things to know about FiDi’s new old-Parisian-inspired café:
1) They serve Ritual Coffee Roasters.
2) They have Starter Bakery pastries.
3) They’ll have beers on tap and wines by the glass.
4) They’re not open yet. Sorry. But... soon.
