Labor Day: imminent. But summer isn't over yet. Not by a long shot. Especially if these beautiful single-speed Solé Bicycles from sunny California have anything to say about it. And if Perks has anything to say about it, which it does, you're not paying full price.
Things to do for August 23, 2017
Unlimited Wine Tastings and a 17% ABV Beer
Feel Free to Balance That Out With the Perfect Date Night at BerettaBy Joe Starkey
To the Mission, for Delicious Peruvian Things
Alma Cocina is a new Peruvian restaurant two years in the making. It's got ceviche and whole rotisserie chickens with chimichurri. And since you enjoy all of those things, it just seemed like those words probably should have been typed at some point today.
Restaurants and Bars. So Many Restaurants and Bars.
Eat Drink SF, that annual party dedicated to all things edible and drinkable, returns this weekend with three days of tastings and demos. New this year are fine establishments like Monk's Kettle, Black Cat, City Counter and Robin. Again, you eat and drink there.
The Wine Tastings Don't Have to End Here
Head across the Bay this Saturday for a huge 10-year anniversary party at Rock Wall Wine Company, complete with a view of the San Francisco skyline, live music and the unveiling of 10 new wines with unlimited tastings. Probably should've led with the unlimited tastings.
A 17% ABV Beer Is Involved. Sorry/You're Welcome.
Speaking of anniversaries, Drake's Brewing Company will be celebrating their 28th on Saturday by hosting a huge block party with giant beer pong and more than 25 brews on tap, including a 17% ABV monster called The Void. Which we don't recommend using for beer pong.
Cocktail Class Is in Session at Beretta
You and a date will want tickets to Beretta's cocktail class that's happening on Tuesday. It'll focus on post-WWII and Prohibition-era drinks and provide you with all the ingredients and hands-on instruction to make three cocktails together. Hence the wanting of the tickets.
What Else Is New
Taking a Bath Can Now Get You Stoned
Assuming you use this THC-infused bath bomb, of course. While you're at it, you might as well make your own blend of Johnnie Walker, and check out this week's Trump administration power rankings. You might be surprised to find out who (or what) made the list.
