Your Perks: 1) Tom Ford sunglasses at half off. What? How? Don’t you worry your pretty little head. 2) A flying palm-size HD-camera drone. Huge for your Vine game. 3) A vintage Rolex. A vintage Omega Seamaster 120. A vintage Cartier watch. A vintage... well, you get the idea.
Things to do for April 09, 2015
Sushi, an Opening Day Tailgate and a Thousand Frames
There’s no crying in weekend.
A Couple of Book-Related Ideas
Every so often, the people at Chronicle Books say “F**k it,” and this epic warehouse
sale becomes a thing: all books are 65% to 80% off.
Also, this literary salon just opened, with a bookstore, a café, performance space for things like comedy and open-mic night... and beer and wine to facilitate the open mic-ing.
Breakfast Burritos at the Transit Café
We went ahead and did the math for you. Equator coffee + breakfast burrito + views of the Golden Gate Bridge + all from the person behind the Commissary and Arguello = good morning.
Glasses Straight Out of Tokyo
Somewhere in Tokyo, there’s a store where Kanna the Robot makes eyeglasses. 1,200 frame options. Thirty minutes and you’re out. There’s a drive-through window, too. “Of course there is,” you think. There’s also their first US store, opening Friday on Powell Street. “Neat,” you think.
Chef Jiro Lin Thinks He’ll Stay Awhile
Chef Jiro Lin is doing a guest stint at Saison, and... it’s kind of a big deal. Firefly squid from Toyama Bay, sea urchin and only eight seats at his counter. This could get out of hand, but in a pretty subdued way since you’re sitting at his counter.
Opening Day Oysters and Jerk Chicken
On Monday, it only makes sense to take a pass on work for jerk-spiced wings with pineapple gastrique. Also on James Syhabout’s tailgating menu: smoked beef tri-tips. Po’boys. Oysters. Oh, and there’s some baseball going on across the street.
