The Bourbon & Branch Boys Deliver

Imagine this: You’re standing along the very unremarkable stretch of Kearny Street—the stretch on the cusp of the Financial District populated by endless, unremarkable work-a-day sandwich spots like Briazz and stores like Loehmann’s Shoes (not unremarkable)—and you pass a guy (for the hell of it, let’s just imagine he’s cute and Irish and wearing a paigeboy cap and suspenders) tooling down the street on an antique bicycle with a basket full of gorgeous whiskey. For whiskey lovers such as myself, this could be quite a vision.

The Corpse Reviver Cocktail: Morning of the Living Dead

Most mornings, my wife, Christie, likes to sleep in. She works late into the night, so it's understandable, yet at the same time she does often need some encouragement to emerge from the cozy confines of the covers. Today, it was especially difficult for her to get up, since we had stayed up late talking. At a certain hour, I came in and joked to her resistant ears that she resembled a corpse and I’d decided to make her a Corpse Reviver to help her get out of bed. A drink first catalogued in the Savoy book by Harry Craddock, it's a strong, hair-of-the-dog type of concoction. I thought it would be just the thing.

Anchor Brewing and Buena Vista at SFO

Going through airports is as bad as it’s ever been. I don't mind taking off my shoes in security--it's the belt that's annoying. One thing that's made flying better, however, is the appearance of local food and beverage vendors in the terminals. I noted this trend a decade ago in my native Austin, TX, as its then-new airport sported such local favorites as Matt's Famous El Rancho (Tex-Mex), Schlotzsky's (sandwiches) and the ever-popular Salt Lick BBQ, whose airport location is closer to the original restaurant (and its pit) than downtown Austin is, so you know the meat is fresh.

Baubles & Ballet Party at BVLGARI

To celebrate the SF Ballet’s 75th Anniversary BVLGARI co-hosted a sumptuous party at their Union Square store on Thursday, March 27. Ballet dancers and guests commingled while sipping on complementary cocktails, nibbling canapés and perusing priceless gems specifically flown in for the event.

Film Happenings Around Town

Smoking Gun: Beretta Opens

The opening of the latest place to eat and drink in the Mission District, brings up two issues:
1. How much pizza can SF take? (I’m thinking a lot, because I’m currently celebrating the close proximity this new spot to my house.)
2. Those star SF bartenders—excuse me, mixologists—sure get around. And I don’t mean in that way.

Theory Lands on Maiden Lane

In keeping up with SF’s retail shuffle, we’ve been curious to see the mysteries of 120 Maiden Lane unfold. Less than seven months ago, Helmut Lang opened its doors on downtown’s tony shopping alley. Today, the minimalist boutique has newly hung banners and signs reading Theory (check out the picture we snapped yesterday).
