Things to do for May 05, 2011
Derby Cocktails, Endless Tamales and the Beatles
The weekend is currently at a 100% approval rating.
For three straight hours, 10 of SF’s top Mexican joints (including Tacolicious, Tropisueño, Nopalito, Mijita) will convene under one roof—with ample tequila and beer—to help you celebrate Cinco de Mayo. That’s a lot of math talk for “It’s a big party with lots of tequila. Go.”
You’re always looking for ways to streamline your lunch-getting process. So you’ll appreciate the new takeout window at the Royal Exchange. Now you can order club sandwiches, gumbo and chili via the window. If you want one of their 32 beers on tap, however, door opening will be required...
Derby Day at Seasons Bar
Seersucker has a short shelf life here, so when you break it out, it needs to count. The good people at Seasons are here to reward your boldness—in the form of any Derby-themed attire—with a gratis bourbon cocktail. Finally, someone astutely values your sense of style.
The Beatles at SF Art Exchange
It’s hard to believe there are any never-before-seen photographs of the Beatles out there. But that’d be underestimating the paparazzi. Either way, these shots of the Fab Four hanging out in Liverpool during their early days qualify. Decidedly pre-Yoko.
Mother’s Day at Lafitte
On Sunday, this waterfront brasserie is introducing a new twist to a time-honored breakfast staple by stuffing bacon and potatoes into sausage form. And since they’re debuting the Bacon and Potato Sausage in honor of Mother’s Day, it’s only fitting that you bring her to this historic event.
