Things to do for June 02, 2011

The Weekender

Whole Pigs, Gratis Punch Bowls and Kill Bill

The weekend is back to squeezing three days into two.

Thursday
Quentin vs. Coen Round Two
BATTLE ROYALE

Quentin vs. Coen Round Two

Until there’s a movie marathon pitting Tarantino flicks against the Coen Brothers’, this duel in collage, painting and digital art forms fills the void nicely. With diner bandits, mob hit men and a group of Nazi killers as inspiration, nothing is off-limits.

Through Jun 30, reception Jun 2, 4-10pm, Spoke Art Gallery, 816 Sutter St (at Jones)

Saturday
Umami’s All-Day Sumo Hour
HAPPY HOURING

Umami’s All-Day Sumo Hour

To combat the first-ever dry Union Street Fair, Umami is extending its happy hour to Saturday and Sunday. Not only that, but they’re starting at 11:30am. This means that you’ll get 50% off every bottle of wine as well as deals on sliders and sushi. We prefer to think of it as two-for-one bottles...

Jun 4-5, 11:30am-7pm, Umami, 2909 Webster St (at Union), 415-346-3431

Burritt Room’s Anniversary Party
THE PUNCHLINE

Burritt Room’s Anniversary Party

Given that it’s a Saturday night, you’d go there anyway. But since they’re tossing in hours of gratis, gin-spiked punch as well as cake all night in celebration of their anniversary, you might allot a little more time. After all, you probably had something to do with them hitting the year marker.

Jun 4, gratis punch 7-9pm, Burritt Room at the Crescent Hotel, 417 Stockton St, 415-400-0500

Sunday
Baker & Banker Debuts Brunch
MONEY IN THE BANK

Baker & Banker Debuts Brunch

It all started with regular dinners at this corner spot. Then, when they opened the bakery, you folded their pastries into your rotation. In other words, you’ve been loyal. So now you’ll want to clear your Sundays for the likes of french toast bread pudding and housemade sausages. The magic words were: french toast bread pudding.

Sundays, 10am-2:30pm, Baker & Banker, 1701 Octavia St (at Bush), 415-351-2500

Endless Pork at Cochon 555
HIGH FIVE

Endless Pork at Cochon 555

It doesn’t take much to improve on a Sunday afternoon. So hours of eating all things pork (there will be five 200-pound-pigs’ worth) paired with endless vino might just put this Sunday over the top. Or at least until next Sunday...
