Your Perks: 1) A membership that scores you tough-to-get reservations at top restaurants around the country. Useful. Quite useful. 2) Stunning wooden headphones that look and sound amazing. Nicely done, trees. 3) A special bottle of Dom Pérignon. Make sure you always have (at least) one handy.
Things to do for February 24, 2016
You’re Previewing a Big-Deal Restaurant This Weekend
Red carpets walk the weekend.
Two New Spots from the Don Pistos Guy
“I could really go for a sandwich, followed by a solid sports bar with delicious drinks,” is something you sometimes think. Great. Because here’s Central Station Deli (for the sandwiches) and Pete’s (for everything else), both now open from the guy behind Don Pistos and Chubby Noodle. You can’t make this stuff up.
An Evening Sail on the Bay. Also, Wine.
Not that your date-planning skills need any help, but here’s a nighttime bay cruise aboard a yacht. It leaves from Sausalito, sails you to prime views of the Bay Lights on the Bay Bridge and, oh yeah, there’s a bar. And mugs of clam chowder. Dates love clam chowder mugs.
You Look Like You Could Use a Dr. Dre Party
And here’s a Dr. Dre–themed Friday night party, which could be a good thing to go to after your little sailing thing. Or could just be your entire night. Because here’s a Dr. Dre–themed Friday night party.
First, a New Brunch. Then, an Oscar Party.
Sunday morning: Oysters, brunch cocktails and smoked-salmon boards, all of which are
available at Lord George’s new weekend brunch.
Sunday evening: Bottomless champagne, food-cart feasting and some friendly competition surrounding this year’s Academy Awards, all of which are available at SoMa StrEat Food’s Oscar Party.
Seems like you’re all set here.
This Place Isn’t Open Yet. But It Is for You.
A rare occurrence like Leap Day deserves its own celebration. Exhibit A: this preview dinner for Fénix, the forthcoming Mexican restaurant from the guys behind AQ and Bon Marché. And yes, that dinner will be paired with tequila and champagne. Leap Days really are the best days.
