Why would somebody want a briefcase (or weekender bag) made from waterproof fabric with leather handles? Because sometimes it rains when you’re heading into the office. And sometimes you just need to play hooky and take a spontaneous Wednesday morning trip to the beach.
Things to do for June 29, 2016
A Few New Wine Country Offerings and a Questlove Dance Party
For amber waves of weekend.
Just a Fine Little Summer Sale at Voyager
Nothing says patriotism quite like a multi-print Soulland button-down, a pair of Matiere shorts and a Norse Projects alpaca sweater. Which is really just another way of saying that Voyager has a big sale happening right now, and those things are part of it. Anyway, America.
Two New Wine Country Spots for Your Long-Weekending Pleasure
It’s a long weekend. You’re going to wine country. Specifically, to...
Two Birds/One Stone: Yakitori at the Freemark Abbey Winery in St. Helena. Japanese whiskey for everyone.
Duke’s Spirited Cocktails: A cocktail bar on the square in Healdsburg from three Spoonbar alums. It’s open late.
Just saying. That’s what you’re doing.
You, Friday Night and Questlove
Questlove. You know Questlove. What you may not know is that he’s playing an extended DJ set at 1015 Folsom on Friday, meaning that’s just about the only option for Friday night now. Other than sitting in the dark sobbing quietly or something. Your call.
Let’s assume you like soul music and stunning views of San Francisco. It stands to reason, then, that you’d also like this Saturday night thing at Top of the Mark where there’ll be a classic soul revue, dirty martinis and a panoramic view of the city. Deductive reasoning can be funny like that.
Ah, Yes, the Brunch-in-Napa Part
At some point this long weekend, you’ll need brunch. Preferably with chorizo breakfast tacos, soft-shell crab and pork belly tortas. And drinks. Option 1: the new one at Basalt in Downtown Napa, which happens to run right up into their new weekend happy hour. Option 2: leftover potato salad.
