1904. 1913. 1925. Those look like random numbers, sure, but they’re actually the years that some of these vintage watches were made. Watches that work just as well as they did back then. But unlike then, they’re attached to leather straps and we have penicillin.
Things to do for September 21, 2016
Horchata-Flavored Shaved Snow Is How It Starts
It Ends with a Knife Party and a Great Big Italian FeastBy Lauren Sloss
The weekend will be poolside until further notice.
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.
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.
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.
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.
