This is a reversible sweater jacket inspired by the great American sport of baseball. Maybe you play baseball. Maybe you watch it. Maybe you just like the way the jacket looks so you’ll put it on and increase your handsomeness rating by a factor of 5x. That’s how this works.
Things to do for August 24, 2016
Marianne’s Is Back
Which Is Nice, but So Is a Rum Festival and Warehouse Skee-BallBy Lauren Sloss
Pardon me, would you have any Weekend Poupon?
Found You Some Dumplings and Frozen Sapporo in the Mission
Today’s a good day to check out Bon, Nene. It’s a new café and restaurant with delicious Japanese things like gyoza, chicken karaage buns and frozen Sapporo. All of the other days should work just fine, too.
Marianne’s Is Back. It’s Also Better.
You’ll recall Marianne’s, the handsome members-only bar behind a bookcase at the Cavalier that recently closed for a bit. Well, it’s back, and now you can go there whenever you want for things like rye-scotch-vermouth cocktails and smoked trout dip. Which is decidedly better than not being able to do that.
Sometimes Bags and Skee-Ball Get Together. This Is One of Those Times.
You should get a new messenger bag or backpack. Partly because you just... should. But mostly because Timbuk2 is throwing a party in their factory store in the Mission with Fort Point beer, skee-ball, food and music. And messenger bags. And backpacks.
There’s a Beer from 1989 in Here
Drake’s Brewing. Fine local establishment. And as fate would have it, they’re throwing a 27th-anniversary party on Friday with tastes of original beers from 1989, new releases, rare barrel-aged beauties and live music. Fate is a funny thing.
Hello, Festival of Rum
Rum: having a moment. Has been for a long time now. So it should come as no surprise that the California Rum Festival is happening this weekend. Martin Cate and Jim Meehan will be there. Unholy amounts of rum will be there. And you. You’ll be there, too.
