“Back the Brits! Back the Brits!” November 29th, Great Britain, in prime fashion, defeated Belgium, in the finals of the Davis Cup (think World Cup of tennis), ending a 79 year Davis Cup drought. The last time they were crowned champions was in 1936 when they were led by the formidable duo of Fred Perry and Bunny Austin. This year they were led by the defensive-minded, world no. 2 men’s tennis player, Andy Murray (pictured below in the 2008 Wimbledon quarter finals). Murray, now a definitive future Hall-of-Famer, has accomplished feats only achieved by one other Englishmen in seven decades.
Halloween is less than a week away, and if you haven’t put together your costume or decided what you’re gonna wear, fear not, for we have your back. Here’s a list of costumes you can put together at Wingtip–or perhaps from your own well-equipped closet.
Last month, Wingtip’s very own Brandon Bigalke competed in Bombay Sapphire’s Regional Finals for the 9th Annual “World’s Most Imaginative Bartender” competition. Held at the of-the-moment Mission bar Forgery, the event was the last stop on the tour, pitting six bartenders against each other to find out who would represent San Francisco at the North American Finals.
Vault Wholesale, Wingtip’s Gold Concierge, is proud to present the Wingtip Gold Bar. The official launch is this Thursday, from 12pm-6pm (with refreshing bubbly from 3pm-6pm).
As part of Eater SF’s continuing Cocktail Week coverage, they compiled a list of SF’s priciest mixed drinks. And, for better or worse, Brian MacGregor’s Bobby Burns-inspired “King of the Orkneys” ranked pretty high on the list.
Finding inspiration for making a cocktail can come from some random places, but let’s start with one of the most basic places: classic cocktail books. This is where great bartenders look when writing a new menu or exploring what their forefathers did when they are seeking inspiration. I feel this is true of all people who work in creative fields.
Currently on display, directly in front of the new walk-in cigar shop at 550 Montgomery (more on that soon!), is a collection of some of our favorite Wingtip brand products. Here’s a breakdown…
The winner of this contest will receive a year supply (two bottles per month) of Hudson Whiskey. And the winning cocktail will be stamped onto the Wingtip cocktail menu…
Nice profile of yours truly in the Robb Report, who called us an “opulent two-story retail space.”
“Tuesday I went into Wingtip again to get started on the custom shirt I’m having made. It was a fun, informative experience. If you’ve never actually worked one on one with a tailor before, definitely try it at least once, just to pick up some of the jargon. Do you know what a gusset is for?”
