Hecho en San Francisco
TEQUILA SUNRISE

Hecho en San Francisco

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.”

May 5, 5:30-8:30pm, $50, Ferry Building, North Arcade, tickets here

Friday
Royal Exchange’s New Takeout Window
EXCHANGE RATE

Royal Exchange’s New Takeout Window

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...

Mon-Fri, 11am-2pm, The Royal Exchange, 301 Sacramento St (at Front), 415-956-1710

UD Hookup:
Mention UrbanDaddy when ordering at the window and get two-for-one sandwiches (or salads) now through May 11.

Saturday
Derby Day at Seasons Bar
HORSING AROUND

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
POOL HOPPING

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.

May 7-Jun 15, 7-10pm, SF Art Exchange, 458 Geary St (at Mason), 415-441-8840

Sunday
Mother’s Day at Lafitte
MEAT AND POTATOES

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.

May 8, noon-8pm, Lafitte, Pier 5, The Embarcadero, 415-839-2134
