Your Perks: 1) A champagne saber that you can have engraved with almost anything you want. Not an abridged version of War and Peace, but still... 2) Vintage Cartier watches. Only one exists of each. Time is of the essence. 3) Gallery-worthy canvas prints from our “best of” collection. Banksy, Gandhi and Biggie included.
Things to do for December 02, 2015
Golf Massages, Truffle Burgers and Alcohol’s Birthday
Feel that nip in the weekend?
“Dress for Me.” —That Nip in the Air
It’s been cold lately. Sure, California-cold, but that’s no reason not to exercise your right to be all warm and cozy. Enter: Seldom Seen, a handsome new shop in Hayes Valley with anything from Maison Kitsuné button-downs to Stutterheim raincoats. They’ve got sunglasses, too. Yep, still California.
Spa, Meet Golf. Golf, Spa.
The separation of golf and spa has always struck you as unjust. But no more, thanks to the 19th Hole, a new series of spa treatments at Rosewood CordeValle in San Martin. A deep-tissue massage here, an essential-oil body polish there, all designed to target golf areas. You know... golf areas.
Happy Birthday, Alcohol
Things you like: Beer. Bands. Cigar lounges. Carnivals. The repeal of Prohibition.
Things you don’t like: Saturday afternoon parties without those things.
Good thing 21st Amendment is throwing a ’30s-themed Repeal Day carnival at their San Leandro brewery. Along with beer. And a band. And a cigar lounge.
Here. You Should Brunch Here.
You’re not picky when it comes to new brunches. So long as there’s a raw bar and an accompanying bottle of champagne, you’re happy. And perhaps a burger, preferably topped with peekytoe crab and black truffles. And as long as you’re at the Dorian. Otherwise, not picky.
You know the Progress and State Bird Provisions. Well, turns out, they’re co-opening a new event space called the Workshop right above the Progress, and there’ll be a pop-up shop there on Sunday. So go. Procure gifts. Then, go downstairs and drink a Manhattan made with black-butter-infused bourbon to celebrate your generosity.
