This week's perk puts you on a private jet to Aspen, with a hotel room, a new wardrobe and four days of feasting waiting for you at the other end. All you need is a little luck—and a ski vest wouldn't hurt.
Things to do for April 08, 2010
Super Duper Burger, Guinness Mustard and Sausages
The weekend knows the S goes before the C.
Pizza Party at Open Studios
You're used to seeing them in bars like Bloodhound or the Homestead, but tonight the Pizza Politana crew will be outside of ARC Gallery's Open Studios artists preview, firing up their pies (think: bacon and smoked mozz, as well as the artisan pepperoni). Consider it art in the making.
Making Sausage with Bruce Aidells
Head up to Sonoma and learn from the guy who was making artisan sausage before we heard about artisan sausage. Bruce, of Bruce Aidells Sausage Co., will be on hand, guiding you through making your own lamb, wild boar and pork links. And the folks from Lambert Bridge will make sure your wine glass doesn't go empty.
Nice Collective Sample Sale
Nice Collective, your go-to local designers for modern gear and ongoing source for jeans, jackets, shirts and boots is unveiling collections dating from seasons past to now. You'll also be able to get one-of-a-kind items that had never been released until now. Timing is everything.
Super Duper Burger Opens in the Castro
With In-and-Out comparisons swirling, you're fully ready for the mayhem when Super Duper opens on Monday. But with rumors of a burger topped with housemade bacon from sister outpost Starbelly, navigating the mayhem will be justly rewarded.
Two is generally better than one, and that goes double when a chef and bartender team up to pair hot dogs and cocktails. Get Absinthe's Guinness mustard-topped dog with a Sea Bean Gimlet, then a grilled lamb dog and a brandy cocktail from Romolo, then Da Beef's Chicago dog with a bourbon chaser... The list goes on, but you get the picture.
