Things to do for October 20, 2011

The Weekender

Burgers at 3am and a Mystery Mansion

The weekend just called. To say. I love you.

Thursday
Japanese Curry in the TL
KARIED AWAY

Japanese Curry in the TL

Curry: probably not top of mind when thinking about Japanese food. But actually, it’s been a mainstay in Japan since the 1800s. Now you can get it at Kare-Ken, a stamp-sized, eight-seater restaurant. Place your order through the to-go window, and if you score seats inside, know that it’s BYOB. Pack accordingly...

Opens Oct 20, Kare-Ken, 552 Jones St (at O’Farrell), 415-292-5273

Saturday
Richard III with Kevin Spacey
SPACED OUT

Richard III with Kevin Spacey

The last time Kevin Spacey and director Sam Mendes worked together, we got American Beauty. This time they’re partnering up to put on a Shakespearian play about a Machiavellian rise to power. If you find any overlap, let us know.

Now through Oct 29, Curran Theatre, 445 Geary St (at Mason), 888-746-1799

Custom Shirts from Gitman
TOP NOTCH

Custom Shirts from Gitman

Seems like just the other day we were talking about old-school, East Coast shirtmakers Gitman Bros. Actually, we were. But now they’re handing over the reins where you and your next shirt are concerned. For a few hours, you’ll pick through 300 swatches and collars to come up with your made-to-order creation. Make them proud.

Oct 22, noon-4pm, Acrimony, 333 Hayes St (at Franklin), 415-861-1025

Tuesday
3am Burgers on Chestnut
SUPER LOTTO

3am Burgers on Chestnut

Probably the best thing about the opening of this, the third Super Duper Burger joint, is that you’ll have a legit late-night weekend option to add to your meager post-last-call/pre-3am arsenal. Do what you need to do until then.

Slated to open Oct 25, Fri-Sat until 3am, Super Duper Burger, 2201 Chestnut St (at Pierce), 415-931-6258

15 Romolo’s Mystery Mansion Party
MYSTERIOUS WAYS

15 Romolo’s Mystery Mansion Party

This post-Halloween party goes down in a 28-room 1889 mansion. There will be a DIY Manhattan bar, or you can get cocktails mixed by the 15 Romolo guys. Victorian-era attire is welcomed and will be amply rewarded. By amply we mean something more than a drink, but less than the mansion.
