Your Perks: 1) A digital subscription to Playboy that also earns you a chance to win an invitation to party at the mansion. A few Playmates have already RSVP’d. 2) Button-ups inspired by the streets of London. Pretty inspiring place, we hear. 3) A juice cleanse to start the summer. Now’s the time.
Things to do for June 18, 2015
Dad-Day Drinking, Oysters and Breakfast Sandwiches
And weekends to go before we sleep.
Many a Fine Filipino Dinner
To whoever keeps emailing us about the lack of fried crawfish musubi in SoMa: good news, Pampalasa’s doing pop-up dinners all weekend with Filipino chefs like Tim Luym (Attic), William Pilz (Hapa truck) and Brenda Buenviaje (Brenda’s French Soul Food). Also, please stop.
A Split Bread Lands on Mission
Should you find yourself at the new Split Bread in SoMa, we made you this handy menu guide:
Before noon: Four Barrel coffee. Jersey breakfast sandwich with cheese and Taylor Ham.
After noon: Spit-roasted-pork-belly Cuban with pickled-jalapeño-beer mustard. If only they’d fit a few more ingredients into their mustard, you would’ve been sold.
It’s a Winery Party. So...
You never need a reason to go to wine country. But this Saturday, Odette will celebrate their newly renovated digs with tastings of their 2012 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon and food from the Meadowood team. So you can just forget we said that thing about reasons.
Two Thoughts on Buying Dad Stuff
Acrimony: is feeling generous. Their spring collection (Helmut Lang, Gitman Bros., Wings +
Horns...) is all 30% off.
Unionmade: is looking especially dapper. Gitman Vintage made them some exclusive suits and ties and the like. So buy all that stuff and then go find something for Dad.
Beer and Oysters with the Old Man
If Dad loves a good raw bar: Get to a Hog Island and order the “World’s Best
Shucker”—that’ll get you HIOC shucking knives, oysters and some cold beer.
If Dad prefers his beer in buckets: Monk’s Kettle is now doing buckets of good bottles on the sidewalk. Point is: buckets.
