Art and VR and Music and the Drinking of Drinks

If culture is what you seek this weekend, culture is what you shall find when you head to the Palace of Fine Arts for a huge mashup of art installations, immersive VR experiences, live music performances and, lest we bury the lede, drinks.

Delicious Cold Things, Right This Way

With temperatures finally starting to hit the low 70s, it's a good thing that Powder has opened up a second location at Spark Social to give you twice the shaved Vietnamese snow in flavors like horchata, black sesame and cereal. Yes, cereal.

Grab a Date, It's Fake-Murder Time
KILLER NIGHT

Grab a Date, It's Fake-Murder Time

So here's an interesting date night: Murder at the Conservatory, where the two of you will be served light bites, a champagne toast and a healthy dose of (fake) murder most foul. Let dinner and a movie down easy.

Napa's Only Rooftop Bar Beckons Wildly
SKY, SKY AGAIN

Napa's Only Rooftop Bar Beckons Wildly

Charlie Palmer has finally done it. And by "it," we mean open Napa's only rooftop bar, with sweeping views of wine country, an all-day menu and a spot at the top of your Napa Valley itinerary. Or at least somewhere up there with all those tastings.

SIGHT FOR SOR EYES

Here, Have An Attractive New Laurel Heights Date Spot

Head to the quiet neighborhood of Laurel Heights for a classy, intimate Italian/Californian dinner, marveling at the beautiful artwork while you feast on handmade chestnut tagliatelle and dry-aged duck for two. It's probably worth mentioning that you'll be doing all of that at this new place called Sorrel.

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.
