Your Perks: 1) Whiskey bullets and whiskey stones. Ice wishes it looked this good. 2) Boots that belong on your feet. See them and you’ll agree. 3) Minimalistic watches with sapphire-crystal faces and leather straps. Get one. It’s the right thing to do.
Things to do for March 02, 2016
A New Brewpub, a Solid Gold Party and Mina Test Kitchen’s New Thing
Weekend’s just another word for nothin’ left to lose.
The Latest Thing at Mina Test Kitchen Is...
You remember Mina Test Kitchen. It’s that ever-morphing restaurant on Greenwich where, a few months back, you enjoyed Middle Eastern deliciousness. And more recently, Little Italy–style red sauce deliciousness. Now, it’s the Company, which involves prix fixe Indian deliciousness complete with wine pairings. In summary: deliciousness.
So Much Gold. So Many Dance Moves.
When you think of the Asian Art Museum, you might not think “Campy Solid Gold–themed party in which all attendees are encouraged to wear gold.” Or “DJs. And maybe some choreographed dance moves.” Well, you’re going to on Thursday night, because pretty much all of that’s happening.
New Beer in the Old Abbot’s Cellar Space
Formerly on Valencia: Abbot’s Cellar, a stunning beer temple, complete with a thoughtful
menu and beer pairings.
Currently on Valencia: Brasserie Saint James, a new stunning beer temple, complete with over 12 beers brewed in-house and things like lamb tartare and bone marrow canoes. Always with the bone marrow canoes.
Runny-Egg Brunch Pizza on the Embarcadero
Pizza for breakfast is a good idea. Especially when you eat it at Caputo, that nice pizza joint off the Embarcadero with bay views and a shiny new brunch that involves a pie topped with pancetta, burrata and a runny egg. It involves other things, too, but mostly that.
You’ve Probably Never Drank This Before
You’ve got your agave spirits down. Mezcal: sure. Tequila: of course. Now, it’s time to get acquainted with pulque. It’s a milky-white spirit made from the sap of the agave plant, and you’re about to taste it and learn all about it this Sunday at Old Bus Tavern. Education is neat.
