Your Perks: 1) A curated selection of the 20th century’s most iconic timepieces. And by that we mean Rolex, Cartier and the like. 2) A personally engraved bottle of Kentucky bourbon. “Happy Father’s Day” —You. 3) Enough Hugo Boss polos to kill a man. Kidding. Polos are generally nonviolent.
Things to do for June 04, 2015
Prince’s Birthday and a Pop-Up Club
This is what it sounds like when doves weekend.
Their Hours Are Consistently Happy
For the after-work situation: Get to Churchill for rotating $6 drinks like the
strawberry-shrub-based Victory Gardens. Easy.
For the weekend-day-drinking situation: They’re doing Bloody Mary specials, micheladas and other things that involve the words “beer,” “shot” and “combo”...
A Pop-Up Club in Urchin Bistrot
Things start to get weird late night at Urchin, that French spot in the Mission. The tables give way to a dance floor. Fireball-and-pilsner specials run rampant. Post-midnight burgers become a thing. A DJ materializes out of thin air. We took some hyperbolic liberties with that last one.
Prince Enthusiasts Unite at the Roxie
Things you probably didn’t know will happen this weekend:
—Prince’s 57th birthday.
—A Prince sing-along at the Roxie with costumes, prizes and birthday cake.
Things you have probably figured out:
—Those two things are directly related.
How Bix Does Sunday Dinner
A fine Sunday dinner option: Bix’s new $35 three-course prix fixe. There will be sand dabs. There will be Wagyu-beef paillard. There will be you, with a forkful of Wagyu in one hand and a martini in the other and a piano playing softly in the background. Maybe not, that’s just how we picture it.
Some Nice New E-Bikes from Faraday
Option 1: Go the fixie route and arrive at your destination looking like you went the fixie
Option 2: Acquire this new motorized e-bike called the Porteur S. It’s got a 240-watt battery, cork grips, alloy fenders and other things motorized e-bikes have.
A time and place for everything.
