Local Clothiers Make Good, Buy a Lot of Art


Local Clothiers Make Good, Buy a Lot of Art

The founders of Gap managed to find some time between growing their empire of jeans and polo shirts to amass an astounding collection of art. Enough to fill the top two floors of the MOMA and its garden. The roster reads like a who's who of the art elite. Sadly, no khakis.

411: Jun 25-Sep 19, $18, SFMOMA, 151 Third St, 415-357-4000

Domingo de Coco at Smuggler's Cove

Domingo de Coco at Smuggler's Cove

Every so often, it's nice to switch things up, put down the drinking glass and go with a fresh coconut as your goblet of choice. So Smuggler's Cove is serving up your rum cocktail in that handy tropical fruit this Sunday. Maybe beer in a boot next Sunday.

Spice Kit Opens in SoMa

Spice Kit Opens in SoMa

You'd go to great lengths (read: venture into the Tenderloin) for Asian street food. But now you'll only have to go as far as this new SoMa lunch spot for banh mi or ssäm in all their short rib, roast pork or chicken glory. It's all prepped by French Laundry and Ritz-Carlton vet chefs—proving once again that nobody's above solid street food.

Opens Jun 28, Spice Kit, 405 Howard St (at Fremont), 415-882-4581

Absinthe's Pop-Up Cocktail Bar

Absinthe's Pop-Up Cocktail Bar

Starting Monday, the Absinthe crew will be hosting Pickled, a monthly pop-up bar where you'll get to preview eight to 10 yet-to-be-released cocktails like mezcal with cucumber and lemon, or pisco with figs and sage. We think you're up for the task.

Last Monday of every month beginning Jun 28, 5:30-10pm, Absinthe Private Dining, 388 Hayes St (at Gough), 415-551-1590
