Now, what good would a water- and stain-resistant bag made from military-grade canvas be to you? It’s not like it could handle a trip to the beach. It’s not like it could withstand a spilled coffee on the way to work. It’s not like we’re laying that sarcasm on pretty thick here...
Things to do for June 22, 2016
A Beer-Centric Luau and Dinner from Two Eleven Madison Park Vets
Weekend, not stirred.
Two Eleven Madison Park Vets Want to Cook You Dinner
Eleven Madison Park: solid restaurant. And now, a pair of its former chefs—who are opening a restaurant on Divis later this year—are hosting rotating pop-ups in the former Roosevelt Tamale Parlor. The first is inspired by one chef’s Russian mom and is filling up fast. Yes, that was a hint.
Appreciate Art. Drink Coffee. Repeat.
Art and coffee are enjoyable. So it stands to reason that you’ll enjoy Tertulia. It’s a new café in Oakland near the Fox. They’ve got Stumptown coffee, Firebrand breads and pastries, a big, airy space and art everywhere. Look out for evening DJs and artist talks, too. Sneaky bastards.
Speakeasy’s parties are always a very good time. Speakeasy’s Brewer’s Picnic: Luau Edition, complete with music, poke and a whole roasted pig, will also be a very good time. So, good times.
A Sunset Toast to Summer and Rooftops
Rooftop parties have been and forever will be the best types of parties. Particularly the ones involving four DJs, stunning views of the bay at sunset and Crystal Jade’s rooftop. Particularly those ones.
You Have to Know Where to Look for This Brunch
Orbit Room, that under-the-radar-but-still-very-magical cocktail bar, now serves breakfast. During the week, that means bagels, breakfast sandwiches and coffee. On weekends, that means breakfast quiche with a hash brown crust and pizza topped with eggs, bacon and tater tots. And a drink. Always a drink.
