Four Barrel Coffee Coming Soon

Lest you think we have reached the coffee saturation point, let me just tell you right now that you are mistaken. For there's a new game in town, and it's going to be a good one. Jeremy Tooker, the one-time co-owner of cool kid  headquarters, Ritual, is about four weeks away from opening his own spot, Four Barrel Coffee. The 3,000 square foot cafe (375 Valencia at 15th) is not, however, a Ritual knock-off. For one, Tooker is adamant that the cafe won't have WiFi—something, he admits, they felt they "had to do" in order to bring customers into Ritual. Instead, he's hoping that, "I don't know, maybe people will talk to one another." There won't be any Chai, or any other kind of tea, for that matter.

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.
