Après-Specific Leisure Gear. Lots of It. Plus Beer.

It’s useful to have a solid go-to for après-surf and après-ski shirts. Especially if said ski shirts have built-in bottle openers like the ones from California Cowboy. They just opened their first brick-and-mortar on Polk and are throwing a party this evening to celebrate. Safe to say that beer will be involved.

A Very Nina Simone Evening at Mr. Tipple’s

If your plans for tomorrow night don’t include a sultry jazz bar, perfectly executed drinks, Nina Simone on vinyl, a live jazz band playing Nina covers, and a patty melt, well... shame on you.

PIZZA PARTY

Here, Have a New Slice House

More pizza from Tony Gemignani is always a good thing. So it’s safe to say that his newest Slice House on Haight Street, with Jim Morrison- and Jimi Hendrix-themed pizza, is a great thing. Especially since this location has burgers, too. Your head just imploded.

Saturday
Spike Jonze and Charlie Kaufman and the Roxie
MR. JONZE

Spike Jonze and Charlie Kaufman and the Roxie

What’s that? Looking for a seasonally inspired movie night with your loved ones around the holidays? Here’s this Spike Jonze and Charlie Kaufman tribute at The Roxie, where you can watch Where the Wild Things Are, Being John Malkovich and Adaptation all in one go. Which is probably too many movies but still.

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.
