Lessons learned from your holiday travels: 1) Limit two eggnogs per grandmother. 2) It’s time to get a new suitcase. Like this perfectly sized, zipperless carry-on. It opens via roll-top, glides easily on 360-degree wheels and has a battery with two USB ports, plus GPS so your bag never disappears unannounced. Unlike Grandma.
Things to do for January 04, 2017
There’s a David Bowie Party This Weekend
There’s Also a Three-Level Salsa Club and Bacon Breakfast SandwichesBy Lauren Sloss
A Gloriously Resolution-Free Breakfast Spot
Happy New Year. What’s that? Your resolution is to eat more bacon? Perfect, because here’s this new spot in Oakland that specializes in breakfast sandwiches, especially ones topped with pig things. One’s called the Baconslut. We’ll let you take it from here.
Three Levels of Puerto Rican Goodness in SoMa
Sadly, this town is missing a three-level Puerto Rican salsa club with a jazz lounge and a restaurant with a rooftop patio. Joyously, this town is getting one of those tomorrow. It all worked out in the end.
David Bowie Burlesque Seems Necessary
We’re pleased to announce that this weekend includes two performances celebrating David Bowie. Specifically, full performances of Ziggy Stardust and Diamond Dogs by a burlesque troupe, random audience participation and possibly some glitter. Fine, skip the glitter.
Late-Night Burgers and Stuff at the Saratoga
The Saratoga has a new late-night thing where $20 gets you a double cheeseburger, a pony of High Life and a shot of Chartreuse, fernet or bourbon. You don’t have to dress up for it.
