Things to do for February 01, 2017
A Teeny-Tiny Bar Rises from the Ashes
You Should Go. Then You Should Go to a Super Bowl Party at a Ping-Pong Bar.By Joe Starkey
Italian-University-Approved Gelato in SoMa
You clearly chose the wrong school. Because the owners of this newly opened gelateria in SoMa attended a gelato university in Bologna to learn how to make the perfect scoop, and suddenly they’re serving you flavors like coconut, banana-and-rum and Irish coffee. They clearly chose the right school.
A Long Lost Bar Gets Resurrected
You thought you’d never recover from the loss of Big, that tiny, beloved, menu-less bar of yore. Then it came back in the form of BiiG, with a marble bar, a requisite moose head and a new set of rules like, “Skullduggery of any kind will not be tolerated.” So apparently there’s no skullduggery.
To the Museum, for Open Bars and Things
The Exploratorium is hosting their annual Science of Cocktails event where you can do things like get your hands on drinks from over 20 different (open) bars and test your wine knowledge in their Red or White game. Or just keep drinking wine. That’s how you gain wine knowledge, right?
Unionmade’s Having a Sale. Go to Her.
Unionmade is having their end-of-season sale, which means you can take an extra 20% off their already 40% off items, which includes always-useful, never-not-handsome things like fisherman sweaters and vintage T-shirts. It helps that our city doesn’t really pay attention to seasons.
Ping-Pong and Football and Nachos and Glee
Everyone’s favorite Susan Sarandon-backed ping-pong bar, SPiN, is hosting a Super Bowl viewing party with drink specials, a menu involving street tacos and nachos and a bunch of cozy places to watch million-dollar commercials from. Football’s cool, too.
