The Lunar New Year, Racy Photos and Beer
The weekend is not skiing in Tahoe... again.
It’s common knowledge that the best time to celebrate Valentine’s is not on Valentine’s. So getting a jump start on the festivities with gratis cocktails here is the way to go. After a few shochu drinks, posing with your date atop a quarter moon will seem like a good idea. Shochu has a funny way of doing that.
When coming to an erotic photography exhibit of epic proportions (think more than 400 photos by 25 different artists), you’ll want to keep an open mind. Everything from fine art or relatively tame black-and-whites to extreme close-ups will be on display for sale. Although, it is hard to put a price on art...
In honor of the city’s official Lunar New Year celebration, this subterranean drinking den is toasting the Year of the Dragon with flutes of Iron Horse winery’s Chinese cuvée. Festivities here start early enough for a few rounds before the parade kicks off at 5:15pm. You never parade on an empty stomach.
Chicken Meatball Sandwiches at 903
Sandbox Bakery got you hooked on their fried chicken sandwiched between a “bun” made with rice patties—along with morning buns and croissants. But what this sister café has going for it (on top of fried-chicken rice burgers) is that it actually has chairs and tables. The power of furniture shouldn’t be ignored.
Seven ales and five courses sounds like the scales are tipped in the right direction for this beer-paired dinner. The Brewtruc will serve as the outdoor bar during dinner, then it’ll transform into a chariot chauffeuring you to some of the finest alehouses in the Haight. Like magic...
