Tonight, you have options. The first is at Edinburgh Castle, where they are holding a tournament to determine who has the best facial hair in all of San Francisco, in four different categories: mustache, beard, partial beard and fake facial hair. And just for competing (or observing), you will win gratis PBRs.
Things to do for May 27, 2010
Mustaches, Barbecue and Rum Cupcakes
The weekend is going long.
Then, later tonight, the Lookout is bringing in a merry band of pranksters from Burning Man known as Dirty Dishes, who will be setting up a techno DJ and three food carts, dishing you pulled-pork sliders, chicken satay and desserts from Gobba Gobba Hey. Nothing goes better with pulled pork than techno.
Soon, Orson chef Elizabeth Faulkner will have a desserts mecca open for you called Citizen Cake. Until then, she's tiding you over this weekend with a sweets pop-up store inside Orson. Do yourself a huge favor and order the Bananas Foster Daiquiri Cupcake, made with rum.
Three-Day Sale at Acrimony
This weekend is good for barbecues. It's also good for shopping. Possibly for stuff to wear to barbecues. With that in mind, Acrimony is taking 40% off youthful, small-batch labels like Gitman Bros, Wings + Horns and Hyden Yoo. We see a new T-shirt and a chicken leg in your future.
This Tuesday is the start of BBQ Tuesdays at Mission Beach Café, when they'll be blasting your taste buds with a grill-heavy swath of mesquite-smoked pulled-pork sandwiches and fig-wood-smoked ribs. But this Monday they'll be throwing a preview, so get in a day early and feel superior to everybody dumb enough to think BBQ Tuesdays would start on a Tuesday.
