Holiday Weekend Like You Mean It

A Rooftop Winter Solstice Party Seems Nice

That whole winter solstice thing is going on right now. Meaning the days are short, the nights are long and you probably deserve a cocktail. Preferably a warm one made with tea-infused mezcal and molasses, which you’ll conveniently find at El Techo’s solstice party tonight. Huh. Look at that.

Dec 21, 4-10:30pm, no cover, El Techo, 2516 Mission St (near 21st), 415-550-6970

Pretend This Makes a Ton of Sense

When you think “holiday double feature,” we’re going to guess that Gremlins and Trading Places aren’t the first films that come to mind. All of that changes tonight at the Castro, where said movies are being screened in honor of this week’s festivities. All of it. It all changes.

Dec 21, 7 and 9pm, $12 at door, The Castro Theatre, 429 Castro St (between 17th and 18th), 415-621-6350

Thursday
The Dorian Wants to Keep You in Hot Toddies Tomorrow Night
TODDY OR NICE

The Dorian Wants to Keep You in Hot Toddies Tomorrow Night

There will be hot toddies. There will be whiskey ciders. There will be a thematically appropriate sweater or bow tie. There will be mistletoe in the photo booth. Basically, there will be a lot of things at the Dorian’s holiday party. You should go, if only for the things.

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

Friday
On Lunch, and Where to Eat It Now
GOOD AFTERNOON

On Lunch, and Where to Eat It Now

Two gifts for you: Una Pizza Napoletana and Rintaro serve lunch now. Una’s features their immaculate pies, including a holiday special topped with escarole, olives and raisins. Rintaro’s features three teishoku lunch sets that have lately been filled with prawn and scallop dumplings, pork katsu and sashimi. Sorry we forgot to wrap them.

NATIONAL TREASURE

Place These on Body. Become Very Comfortable. Repeat.

Industry of All Nations, an LA-based shop with things like alpaca sweaters, madras shirts and other garments of a comfortable nature, is now open on Hayes. You’ll like what they have and should wear a lot of it. We would go on, but there’s probably no need to go on.

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.
