Things to do for June 25, 2015
Poetry at Warby Parker and a Cannabis Dinner. Hi, Weekend.
Follow the yellow brick weekend.
A Poetry/Drinking Thing at Warby Parker
“We saw the greatest minds of our generation drawn to the Beat Museum’s Beatnik Shindig at Warby
Parker’s Hayes Street shop, starving hysterical/naked/for a literary showcase of poetry, live smooth jazz,
vintage typewriters and specialty drinks.”
Allen Ginsberg sort of kind of wrote that.
It’s Summer. You Should Eat Ice Cream.
First official weekend of summer. Yay. Head to Smitten’s first SF-side brick-and-mortar shop for some ice cream made with a patented machine that uses liquid nitrogen to churn exceptionally small ice crystals. Which just means it makes things like mint chip and Blue Bottle Espresso ice cream taste better.
Nombe Is Gone. In Its Place:
Out at 2491 Mission: A nice Japanese izakaya called Nombe.
In at 2491 Mission: An international-leaning place called Myriad where you’ll be privy to things like BLT tomato soup, roasted-lamb sandwiches and pappardelle with pork cheeks.
Just left for 2491 Mission: You.
Four Parts Dinner, Three Parts... Weed
This is just like any other four-course dinner. Except between dishes like bourbon bacon and wine-braised short ribs, you’ll sample one of three different organic, sun-grown cannabis strains. What’s that? Oh, you do this at all your four-course dinners? All right. Joke’s on us.
Here’s a comprehensive guide to Taylor Stitch’s new summer-forward Sun Up, Sun Down collection.
For sunup: A solid navy or red swimsuit handmade in California.
For sundown: A heather gray or blue Japanese-milled slub twill button-up with their signature collar.
Well, that was easy.
