Listen Up. No, Seriously, Listen Up.
FROM PERKS

Listen Up. No, Seriously, Listen Up.

Because we found you a collection of first-class wireless and ear-in headphones from the Swedish music-lovers over at VAIN STHLM. They're equipped with top-of-the-line audio technology, built for comfort and boast the clean yet definitive look you've come to expect from Scandinavian things. All that's left for you to do is press play. And stop. You'll probably have to press stop at some point, too.

This New Bakery in North Beach Is More Glorious Than Not

Sylvia’s Bakeshop has arisen in the former North Beach Baking Co. spot, using the century-old baking ovens in the space to produce things like blueberry cheese tarts and cheddar biscuits. Which are things you like to eat. Which, coincidence?

Now open, Sylvia's Bakeshop, 1501 Grant Ave (between Union and Nobles), 415-872-9390

Roses’ Taproom Opens in Temescal to Your Beer-Drinking Delight

The ever-changing landscape of Temescal just added a new brewpub in the form of Roses’ Taproom. It’s the brainchild of a homebrewing couple and has breads and charcuterie from Pizzaiolo and Duende, plus a mug club membership option for discount pints. You love a good mug club.

This Party. It’s Just So French.
FRANCE LIKE NO ONE’S WATCHING

This Party. It’s Just So French.

On Friday, RN74 is celebrating Bastille Day with unlimited food and drink, French music, a raffle for RN74 swag and a silent wine auction from their award-winning cellar. It’s okay if all you took from that was “unlimited food and drink.”

July 14, 4:30-7:30pm, $74-$100 ($74 for the first 74 ppl), RN74, 301 Mission St (at Fremont), 415-543-7474, tickets here

Saturday
Virtual Reality and Cannabis and You
HIGH DEFINITION

Virtual Reality and Cannabis and You

This weekend at Virtual Reality Elevated SF, you’ll experience VR the way it was meant to be experienced: by sampling unlimited cannabis concentrates and edibles, then hunting zombies and doing a little 3D painting. Unless you know of another way.

July 15, 8pm-midnight, $45-$95, location revealed 24hrs prior to event with ticket purchase, tickets here (use code “URBANDADDY” for 10% off first 50 tickets)

What Else Is New

Joe Starkey is the tallest person in the room 90% of the time. He enjoys liquors that aren’t smoky, dive bars that are, and has a vague dread that someone, somewhere might be having more fun than him.
