It's hard to find good gloves. Especially handcrafted, touchscreen-friendly ones made from things like lamb leather and cashmere. Especially-especially these ones from Quill & Tine, crafters of rather stunning, rather phone-friendly gloves that you'll need to get you through winter. Which is too bad (for anyone not with Perks).
Things to do for January 31, 2018
Plumed Horse Get a Casual Spinoff and You Get a Super Bowl Meat Extravaganza
And Something Called a "Floating Garden of Emotions," of CourseBy Joe Starkey
To Tacolicious, for Crab and CBD-Infused Cocktails
Once you grab tickets to Tacolicious's Crab Bender in North Beach, you'll find yourself privy to Josey Baker Bread and the titular Dungeness crab paired with tequila cocktails made with CBD-infused juices from Sonoma Hills Cannabis Farm. Probably don't drive to this.
Happy Almost-Chinese-New-Year. Let's All Go Drink Animal Cocktails.
Cold Drinks, that hidden bar above China Live, is kicking off Chinese New Year with a menu of 12 drinks inspired by the 12 zodiac animals. Start with a White Hare with Scotch, ancho reyes, banana liqueur, coconut syrup and chocolate bitters. Then, finish with a Lucky Dog. It, too, contains alcohol.
This Is Instagram Gold
On Sunday, head to the Village Artist's Corner just outside the Asian Art Museum for the unveiling of the Floating Garden of Emotions. That? It's an interactive (and highly Instagrammable) art journey that's supposed to facilitate your understanding of emotions. You could also just go and point at pretty things.
Be the Food-Based Hero Your Super Bowl Party Deserves
The Super Bowl is nigh. And even if you're not crazy about the Eagles or the Patriots, you are crazy about BBQ. Which is where Belcampo's Game Day Kit comes in with items like two-pounds of Belcampo Grind, two-pounds of chicken wings, plus hot dogs and other deliciousness. Someone else can bring beer.
Plumed Horse Gets a Casual Spinoff in Saratoga
Should you find yourself craving the handmade pasta of the Plumed Horse, but maybe not all the rigmarole that dinner at such a fancy-pants establishment requires, make for their new casual spinoff, Pasta Armellino, which will begin serving Michelin-level pasta starting Monday. In conclusion: pasta.
What Else Is New
This Airbnb Is a World-Class Submarine in the Bahamas
And it's only available to a select, deserving few. Speaking of deserving... we hereby present you with the world's smartest golf ball, which tracks its own velocity, spin speed and more technical things. Finally: care to try this tequila that's been aged in Napa Chardonnay barrels?
