Things to do for October 07, 2015
Waffle-Fried Duck Legs and the Happiest Hour There Ever Was
The weekend’s coming back strong in 2016.
Drinks + Ice Cream = A Happier Hour
Every Wednesday during October, Brasserie S&P will host a happy hour. They’ll serve fancy drinks, then pair them strategically with a scoop of either Harvey Milk & Honey Graham or Blue Bottle Vietnamese Coffee ice cream. And that’s the story of how happy hours suddenly involved ice cream.
You, Tiburon and a Store Named Wellen
Wellen: An LA surf brand for rakish yet beach-appropriate gear like Hawaiian-print oxfords,
colorful cotton-canvas pants and Blu Kicks zip-ups.
You: A person who enjoys such things.
Tiburon: The magical place where you’ll meet the brand in store form. Glad we hashed this out.
Sail Around. Watch the Blue Angels.
The next time someone asks you where you’re watching the Blue Angels this weekend, tell them you’re watching from Seaward. Then tell them Seaward is the name of an 82-foot schooner that’ll be sailing around the bay during the show. Because not including such supplemental information would be weird.
Looks Like You’re Going to Tahoe
The Basecamp Hotel in Lake Tahoe has added some new rooms just in time for ski season. They’ve also added a beer garden just in time for Saturday’s Oktoberfest party with California beers, brats and live music. In summary: the Basecamp Hotel seems to be extremely cognizant of time.
We’re at a Loss for Brunch Words
Waffle-fried duck leg. Crème-brûlée-battered brioche french toast. Sous-vide hash browns stuffed with a soft-boiled egg. A sherry, Cardamaro, buttermilk and egg white cocktail. We’d keep going, but then we’d run out of time to mention that these are all part of Sous Beurre Kitchen’s new brunch.
