Your Perks: 1) Bikes for cruising down the block to get fresh-pressed juice. And other non-juice-related items... 2) The kind of sunglasses that make strangers stop in their tracks and declare interjections. Like “Wow.” 3) Shorts, pants and shirts specially designed to keep you looking (and smelling) fresh during workouts.
Things to do for February 17, 2016
Gratis Grilled Cheese and an LCD Soundsystem–Themed Dance Party
The weekend’s getting the band back together.
Here, Have Some Gratis Grilled Cheese
You know the Mill. You’ve probably stood in line for toast there. Unnecessarily good toast. Well, they’re turning three today, and celebrating by not making you give them money for grilled cheese, soup and beer. Which sort of feels wrong but also not at all.
LCD Soundsystem: The Dance Party
Sometimes you put on LCD Soundsystem and dance around at your place. Sometimes you go to the Rickshaw Stop for an LCD-inspired dance party while a DJ plays the music instead. The second thing you do seems better.
A Week and a Half of Live Music
Let’s say you want to see a different live band every day for 10 days straight. 1) That’s pretty ambitious. 2) That’s pretty doable at Noise Pop, which involves you, however many dates you feel are necessary and a huge lineup of indie acts playing all over town. Not seeing them all: also allowed.
The Part About Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dogs
We say: Guatemalan-style hot dogs.
You say: ...
We say: Here’s Los Shucos, which just reopened and is now serving bacon-wrapped, loaded hot dogs, chorizo on fresh bread and corn tortillas.
You say: Why didn’t you just say that?
When Bartenders Compete, You Win
Sunday. A day for reflection. For laundry. Or... for watching the best female bartenders in San Francisco compete in a rapid-fire drinks-making competition while you sip punch, eat snacks and feel really good about doing all of that.
