This week's Perk gives you a free week at Equinox Fitness Clubs, now outfitted with iPhone-assisted bookings and eucalyptus-scented towels. Fair warning: there may be some exercise involved.
Things to do for October 01, 2009
100 Bottles of Sake, Whole Beast Dinners and Museum Cocktails
The weekend can't believe it's October.
Today marks the beginning of the sake-brewing season in Japan. In honor of the occasion (considered the Oktoberfest of sake), it's only right to drink sake, and a lot of it—like 100 different labels hand-selected by Tru Sake's master sommelier.
We haven't confirmed this with Einstein, but we'd venture to say that the theory of relativity really comes into focus after a few neat whiskeys. So tonight, head to Hardly Strictly Science at the Exploratorium and learn everything about the physics of music over a cocktail, or three.
Quince Reopens in Jackson Square
You've heard a lot about Quince moving into Myth's old space, and today is the big debut. Expect a bigger menu in the (much) bigger space and David Lynch (the heavyweight NYC sommelier, not the creepy director) in charge of the Italian-centric wine list.
Bar Bambino Delivers Lunch
Even if you can't have your three-martini lunch, you still need to eat. Opt for Bar Bambino's lunch delivery. Five different sandwiches, like the porchetta, come with shortbread cookies, salad and an Italian soda. Delivery is gratis for 10 or more—lunches, not martinis.
Weekly Beast Menu at One Market
Friday marks the beginning of One Market's weekly whole-animal menu. This weekend features five wine-paired courses of goat—think: sausage, spit-roasted leg, neck ragu, roasted rack and loin and goat cheese cake. Pig, duck, lamb and cow are lined up for upcoming weeks—just don't tell them yet.
