Your Perks: 1) Some of Banksy’s best work from his NYC residency is now ready for your walls. 2) A paper-thin portable battery charger. These should be mandatory. 3) A guitar signed by Eric Clapton or Van Halen or the Boss or... someone else equally legendary.
Things to do for March 05, 2015
Uni, Whiskey and Kevin Nealon
The weekend is going to pump... you up.
An Aether Sale Is Here. Enjoy.
Happens daily, pretty much. You don’t need a jacket, then you do. Then you don’t. But back to when you do: just about everything at Aether is 20% off. Motorcycle jackets, anoraks, shells, all of it. Commence donning (and doffing, and donning).
A Burger at Lunch... or Dom and Caviar
If you’re up for a Dom-and-caviar kind of lunch: That’s just one of the irresponsibly
over-the-top meals happening at GourmetFest in Carmel.
If you’d rather just take in some beautiful Golden Gate views: Cavallo Point’s Culinary Classic exists. Dinners. Tastings. Post Ranch Inn and Bardessono chefs. Instagram overload. All here.
Off the Grid Returns with Whiskey
Off the Grid got back to the Presidio last Sunday, and Fridays at Fort Mason start now. This time around, you’ll be able to pay a visit to the Rye on the Road guys to get a couple rounds of Old Fashioneds. And just to catch up. Been too long.
An Evening with Kevin Nealon
You know what SNL 40 needed—more Hans and Franz. Classic. Well, anyway, no barbells are likely to be present at Kevin Nealon’s pretty rare stand-up gig this weekend. Unless he’s really changed his act.
So Very Much Uni at Chaya
Like J.K. Simmons, uni is sort of having a moment. At Chaya, they’re going all in, with a monthlong special menu of uni-abalone risotto, live uni sashimi and uni-and-snow-crab cakes. And nobody will throw anything at your head.
