Your Perks: 1) A vintage Rolex. Or two. Or three. “Too much of a good thing” does not apply. 2) An umbrella that’ll text you if you leave it behind. Good friend, this umbrella. 3) A Versace suit. You know, the internationally renowned house of—anyway, yes, Versace.
Things to do for February 19, 2015
Brewcade, Dumplings and... Cooking with Cannabis
You wouldn’t believe what’s in the weekend’s gift bag.
Your “Happy Chinese New Year” Options
Hakkasan, of course. They’ve got eight family-style courses involving dumplings and
stir-fry ribeye. Also, a wishing tree.
Central Kitchen, also of course. They’ve got 10 family-style dishes from former Agricole chef Brandon Jew. No wishing tree, though.

This May or May Not Change Your Life
You get a parking ticket in San Francisco, Fixed has been all over handling that for you. You get a parking ticket in Oakland, Fixed left you crouched and alone behind a dented meter, softly weeping. Anyway, they exist in Oakland now.
Typical Cooking-with-Cannabis Class
If you happen to know someone who has a medical ID card to legally procure marijuana, and if that person is also interested in using it to make pot butter, and then using that butter to make a nice baked good, that person sounds like a fun person. Who might enjoy a “CannaButter” cooking class.
An Important Table at Namu Gaji
There is a table. It’s a communal table covered with endless kimchi, galbi, spicy pork ribs and Hite beer. And it exists Monday night at Namu Gaji’s now-monthly all-you-can-eat Korean barbecue situation. They mean no disrespect to other tables.
