Living in the Bay Area doesn’t leave much room for dull moments, and if 2018 has been a snoozefest so far it might be time to get out from underneath your Netflix-friendly pile of blankets to venture out.
Fine jazz goes with fine wine
When: Sunday, January 28th, 5 P.M. – 8 P.M.
Where: Press Club, San Francisco
Why: There are many ways to unwind on a Sunday evening, but few as simultaneously refined and relaxing as the Press Club’s Jazz Sunday Series. Visitors can socialize, taste wine and share small plates in the upscale atmosphere of this luxurious wine cellar. // 20 Yerba Buena Lane, No cover, 21+
Pay a visit to the Banana Barbers
When: Saturday, January 27th, 1 P.M. – 6 P.M. and Sunday, January 28th, 2 P.M. – 6 P.M.
Where: Grant Ave. Banana Republic Flagship Store
Why: Banana Republic and Baxter of California have joined forces to launch the first Barber & Shop Pop-Up. Throughout the months of December and January, stop by and treat yourself to a range of complimentary men’s grooming services. // Book your appointment via Shortcut.
Check off that Bay Area bucket list
When: Saturdays and Sundays, 12:30 P.M. – 3:30 P.M.
Where: Point Bonita, Marin Headlands
Why: Though steep in places, the half-mile trail to Point Bonita lighthouse is the perfect setting for a weekend adventure out. Meet docents along the lighthouse trail, which leads to a historic setting with breathtaking views. The true advantage of seeing it with a guided tour is hearing stories of what life was like living at the head of such perilous waters. // Saturday details here and Sunday details here.
If you like pina coladas
When: Sunday, January 28th from 12 P.M. – 4 P.M.
Where: Anina, San Francisco
Why: Okay, so maybe Pina Colada Day is July 10th, but there’s no harm in celebrating your favorite cocktail-umbrella’d drink in a less official capacity this weekend. Vibely is hosting a party with pina coladas on the house! Other perks include a dance floor with a live DJ and chances to win Color Factory tickets. Make sure you RSVP here, due to limited capacity. // 482 A Hayes St.
