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.

Japanese Curry in the TL

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

Richard III with Kevin Spacey

<em>Richard III</em> 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

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

3am Burgers on Chestnut

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

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.
