Your Perks: 1) Waxed-canvas bags that can handle whatever you throw at them this winter. 2) A truly special bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue. It’s whiskey to be celebrated. Or sipped judiciously. 3) A fitted button-down from Jared Lang. You’ve never looked better.
Things to do for January 22, 2015
Endless Dim Sum, Quick Massages and Lots of Beer
One weekend, extra shot, no foam.
A New Taproom to Drink Beer In
Say you’re in the mood for something between bar and brewery. A new brick-and-map-lined taproom from the Archive Bar & Kitchen guys, with eight California beers and six wines on tap, plus bottled goods from all over. Also, bacon deviled eggs. And... that’s everything you’re in the mood for.
A Quick Massage Might Improve Your Day
Maybe you’re one of those people who’s too busy for a massage. Probably not, because that would be ridiculous. Just in case, though, there’s a new minimalist spa in Russian Hill that does chair massages in 30 minutes. Seems like a good compromise.
Two New Reasons to Hit Old Oakland
If you find yourself in Oakland this weekend, the Swan’s Market building has two new spots: Deep Roots, with beer- and wine-based cocktails, and Hen House, an Italian-comfort-food joint hawking chicken crostatas and chuck roast. If you don’t find yourself there, reposition yourself.
The Part About Endless Dim Sum
Q: How many Peking ducks and shrimp dumplings might one want in 90
A: TBD. Chubby Noodle is doing this thing where you can brunch on an endless supply of dim sum, mimosas, sangria and beer.
Q: For 90 minutes?
A: For 90 minutes.
It’s that time again. Time for Unionmade’s biannual sale. And they’re giving you things like Gitman Vintage shirts, SNS Herning sweaters, Vintage Levi’s and the Hill-side pocket squares for 40% off. Good time.
