Your Perks: 1) Clothing created by MIT grads that’s designed to keep you cool. 2) An umbrella that’s super-lightweight, wind-resistant and invaluable to you this spring. 3) A bottle of rosé from a renowned winemaker in the Côtes de Provence region of France... and five others just like it.
Things to do for May 07, 2015
Some Brazilian Eats, Some Unionmade News
The weekend gets its eyes from Mom.
It’s Got a Brazilian Twist
In the magical land of Brazil, your fish is steamed in banana leaves, and your filet mignon’s served picadinho-style—chopped and mixed with hard-boiled eggs in a red-wine sauce. In Potrero Hill, too, at this Brazilian eatery’s new stateside restaurant. So that’s convenient.
A Very German Sort of Celebration
The oldest German restaurant on the West Coast is turning 122 years old. (Slow clap.) Related: they’re throwing a massive Maifest party (that’s the traditional spring celebration) with beer halls, so much sausage, stein-holding contests and, yes, plenty of Maifest beer. And polka. Hear this, Germany: we love you.
You usually go to Triple Voodoo Brewery for a flight of beer. Makes sense. This weekend you’ll go for the Native Sons BBQ pop-up—think Texas-style beef brisket, baked beans, slaw and smoked pork ribs. Also makes sense.
Monitaly’s Now at Unionmade
Swing by Unionmade for some new summer-type stuff to put on your body. They’re carrying Monitaly now: a made-in-the-USA brand that’s big into seersucker, bucket hats, shorts with small anchors on them and other things in varying shades of blue. You know, summer-type stuff.
Two Solid Mom-Day Options
This app: It’s called Sweetness. Wait, don’t leave. You give them $20, they’ll
arrange hand-delivered sweets—and Mom gets a video text from you when they arrive. Sweet.
These bikes: Public’s doing an extra $100 off till May 11. So you can get one for Mom, one for not-Mom.
