Horchata-Flavored Shaved Snow Is How It Starts

It Ends with a Knife Party and a Great Big Italian Feast

By Lauren Sloss

The weekend will be poolside until further notice.

It’s a Whiskey Party. It’s Got Whiskey.

It’s a Whiskey Party. It’s Got Whiskey.

Let’s say a bunch of whiskey people are in town this weekend. And let’s say they gather at Elixir and bring bottles of their finest and take turns behind the stick mixing you drinks and pouring you drams. That would probably be something you’d be interested in, wouldn’t it? Good.

Sep 22, 4pm-2am, no cover, Elixir, 3200 16th St (at Guerrero), 415-552-1633

The Dorian Has the Birthday, You Have the Party

Time flies when you’re having fun. Particularly when the fun includes whiskey and oysters and other things the Dorian has so admirably provided for the last year. Tomorrow’s their first birthday, and they’re celebrating with live music, more whiskey and probably more fun. Fun seems like the point.

Sep 22, 8pm-midnight, no cover, The Dorian, 2001 Chestnut St (at Fillmore), 415-814-2671

Delicious Frozen Delights, Right on Time

Hi. Seen the forecast lately? Yeah, it’s hot out. Meaning it’s perfect timing for Powder’s new shop on Divis. Starting Friday, they’ll be slinging Taiwanese shaved snow in flavors like horchata and Vietnamese coffee. Mostly because they love you.

San Franpsycho’s Got Some New Stuff

San Franpsycho is launching a new collection that includes sweatshirts with vintage-y designs and a collaboration with Leatherman that resulted in knives that look like they’re covered in fish scales. All of which you can ponder and even procure at the release party on Friday. You can’t have fish-scale knives without beer.

Sunday
Eat Pasta. Drink Negronis. Save the World.
GRAZIE MILLE

Eat Pasta. Drink Negronis. Save the World.

Something just feels right about eating Italian food on a Sunday. Especially when it’s an Italian feast prepared by the good people from Octavia, Delfina and Acquerello, it’s accompanied by wine, Negronis and spritzes, and it benefits the earthquake victims in Amatrice. Like we said, just feels right.

Lauren Sloss requires a climate that allows her to wear motorcycle boots daily. She likes her bourbon neat and her martinis dirty, and would like to be the lead singer of a punk rock band when she grows up.
