Your Perks: 1) Blazers, button-ups, ties and other things you’ll use to keep you handsomely warm in winter. 2) A bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée and a couple glasses. Can’t have one without the other. 3) If these watches make you jealous, that’s completely natural.
Things to do for January 06, 2016
David Bowie and Tacos. Somehow It Works.
Do not go gentle into that good weekend.
This Part’s About Queso and Tacos
San Diego. Good town. They do some things quite well there. Namely: Mexican food. Get lots of it at Chicáno Nuevo, a new spot in Bernal Heights with edible things like chorizo-topped queso, tamales, burgers and tacos. It’s okay that we snuck burgers in there.
It’s a David Bowie Rock Spectacular
A lot of things happened in 1972. Take, for example, David Bowie’s release of Ziggy Stardust. That’s something that happened. And the whole album is being performed live this Friday at the Chapel by a merry band of Bowie obsessives. Burlesque will also be involved. Which is not weird.
Wearing Golf Clothes Is Okay Now
Golf pants. Fine, we’ll go on. You may now procure actually nice and actually handsome pairs of those, along with equally nice and handsome golf shirts, thanks to State Apparel. It’s a new webshop. With golf things to wear. That’s why we started this thing by saying “golf pants.”
Brunch? Thought So.
Here’s a new reason to go to Oakland: Penrose. Because suddenly, that’s your new go-to for North African and Mediterranean brunch that involves things like egg-topped spiced lamb, hummus flatbread, shakshuka and merguez. You win again, Oakland.
Oh, the Po’boys You’ll Eat
We say: David Kinch’s Manresa.
You say: All of the Michelin stars.
We say: David Kinch’s new restaurant, the Bywater, a casual New Orleans–style joint with things like po’boys and hurricanes right down the street from Manresa, opens Tuesday.
You say: Sounds great, but did we need to do all of this?
