Tim Schafer is a legend in the world of video game design and also happens to be a UC Berkeley alumnus. On Tuesday, his first point-and-click adventure game in 16 years, “Broken Age,” will be released on Steam, funded on Kickstarter with a goal of $400,000 but was exceeded significantly at $3.45 million. Hopefully the extra $3 million was put to good use.
Melt: The Art of Macaroni and Cheese
On Thursday at Omnivore Books on Food in San Francisco, Stephanie Stiavetti, one of the authors of “Melt: The Art of Macaroni and Cheese,” will be signing books with samples for attendees to taste. Love might be a strong statement, but I’m pretty sure I’m already in love with this book. Maybe it’s just because I’m in a cheesy mood.
“Fuck Your New Year’s Resolution” Party
If you’ve already given up on your New Year’s resolutions, your cravings are probably not satisfied by samples of mac and cheese. Also on Thursday, The Monarch will be hosting a “Fuck Your New Year’s Resolution Party,” complete with bacon, chocolate, malt whiskey, a corset fashion show and a giveaway by Good Vibrations. How’s that for hedonism?
Super Bowl Sunday
Most likely, you will be with friends or family whether it be for the football, the commercials or the halftime show with Bruno Mars, but if you’re still on the lookout for a party, The Elixir in San Francisco’s Mission District will be hosting its annual all-you-can-eat barbecue party starting at 10 a.m.
