Things to do for January 15, 2015
Beermosas, Foie Gras and Massages
Weekend or (The Unexpected Virtue of Indulgence)
Here, Have 10 Massages at Nob Hill
Nob Hill Spa is turning 15 today and they’re celebrating by offering you 10-packs of their all-time favorite services (yes, massages are involved). And they’re charging what they would’ve charged in 2000. We predict a spa day in your very near future. Or 10.
Champagne on the Mountain
You’ve got two options: 1) Champagne on your couch. 2) Veuve Clicquot by the fire, overlooking a snowy mountainside in Squaw Valley. Oh, and the second one comes with Vietnamese chicken wings and cheesesteak poutine. And a photo booth. And a DJ. But, you know, do what you want.
Afternoons of Wine at Les Clos
If you plan on heading to Les Clos this weekend to pick up a bottle, plan on staying for a bit. Because every Saturday going forward, they’re transforming their café/shop/bistro into a full-on tasting room. This week, they’re pouring a half dozen Italian wines. Sounds like an unterrible afternoon.
Beermosa News on the Huxley Front
Maybe you heard a rumor that Huxley was getting into the brunch game. Maybe you also heard that it would involve urchin-topped avocado toast, braised pork and fried eggs, and beermosas. We don’t generally like spreading rumors, but maybe just plan on heading there this weekend.
Dirty Habit’s Foie Gras Tasting Menu
Well, foie in a burger is a thing you can have again. But also, a four-course feast with oysters poached in foie gras fat, foie gras torchon with guava jelly and foie gras butter with white truffles. That’s a more important thing you can have again.
