The Weekender

Gratis Donuts and Beer, Thanksgiving Dinner and a Test Drive

The weekend has Kansas.

Thursday
Greenburger’s Is Now Open
GREEN DAY

Greenburger’s Is Now Open

There are times when just a burger isn’t enough. Times when you’d like someone to politely offer you Fish ’N Chips burgers and Thanksgiving Dinner entrées without you having to ask. Toronado will still be your source for beer—although a salted coffee caramel milkshake could tide you over...

Rooftop Bacchanal at SFMOMA
RAISING THE ROOF

Rooftop Bacchanal at SFMOMA

Scribe and Ridge wines will be on hand as well as bites from Bar Tartine and Flour + Water on the museum’s rooftop. It’s not that green beer’s necessarily less cultured than wine, but there just won’t be any on this rooftop.

Friday
Gratis Donuts and Beer at Dynamo
SPINNING DONUTS

Gratis Donuts and Beer at Dynamo

You were there when the Bacon Maple Apple donut was born, and probably when they rolled out the Monte Cristo and Molasses Guinness Pear. So the debut of the Peanut Butter Banana Honey won’t be an exception—and this time they’re also throwing in gratis Stiegl beer.

Mar 18, 4-6pm, Dynamo Donut, 2760 24th St (at Hampshire), 415-920-1978

Monday
Monroe Opens in North Beach
ON BROADWAY

Monroe Opens in North Beach

There’s no need to explain your insatiable appetite for upscale after-work bars mixing strong cocktails. So you can add this lounge-y Old Hollywood/deco newcomer to your arsenal. Nothing like Old Hollywood and a martini to round out the day.

Now open, Monroe, 473 Broadway (at Kearny), 415-772-9002

Wednesday
A Test Drive onto the Golden Gate
DRIVING RANGE

A Test Drive onto the Golden Gate

Think of this as your opportunity to test out the future road leading up to the Golden Gate Bridge. Once you’re behind the wheel of this simulator, you’ll feel the turns and bumps on the span between the Palace of Fine Arts and the toll plaza. It’s just you and the fake open road.
