Your Perks: 1) Autographed guitars. Think of a rock star and they probably signed one. 2) Socks in all kinds of colors. Just maybe not burnt sienna. 3) Boxes filled with all the ingredients you need to cook a homemade meal. Impressing dates doesn’t have to be hard.
Things to do for January 13, 2016
First, a David Bowie Sing-Along. Then, Weird Brunch.
The weekend is a starman waiting in the sky.
Modern Art, Open Bars and You
It’s true: you miss the MOMA. So you should probably head to the Fog Design+Art preview gala tonight at Fort Mason. In addition to checking things out before it opens to the public this weekend, you get to eat things and drink things. Nothing like “design-inspired” cocktails to ease the pain of separation.
Rainy Day Blues: Cured
All this rain’s got you feeling very... Pacific Northwest–y. Explore these feelings at Cafe Eugene, which just opened in Albany from the guys behind Little Star and celebrates the spirit of Portland and its surrounding environs. Meaning smoked fish, hot cocktails and clam chowder pot pie. Repeat: clam chowder pot pie.
Sushi Things Are Afoot on Haight
And here’s the part where we tell you about Ginza, a new sushi spot in the Haight that’s all about sake. It’s also about sushi like their signature roll with yellowtail, two ways. But it’s mostly probably about sake. Hope you enjoyed the part where we told you about Ginza.
A David Bowie Sing-Along. Yes.
This weekend, Alamo Drafthouse is honoring David Bowie the best way they know how: by hosting a Labyrinth sing-and-quote-along. Grab a seat, watch the cult classic on the big screen and, you know... sing and quote along. BYO Muppets.
Get Ready for Your Brunch Close-Up
“If only this brunch spot looked more like a fashion showroom” was probably not something you thought last time you went to brunch. Now, it need never be thanks to Thoughts Style Cuisine Showroom, a new breakfast/brunch/dinner joint that looks a lot like that. They’ll also be selling sunglasses soon. Right. Goodbye.
