Things to do for March 29, 2012

The Weekender

The Beatles, Cool Ranch Doritos and Otter Wax

The weekend doesn’t suffer fools lightly.

Thursday
Rare Shots of the Beatles in ’68
PHOTO-READY

Rare Shots of the Beatles in ’68

Thirty-six never-before-presented photos of the Fab Four in London are here for you to see and buy. Check out shots of Sir Paul wearing fuzzy ears, as well as John and Yoko in the early stages, in the exhibit known as Mad Day Out. Yes, yes, we did say fuzzy ears.

Friday
Dorito Sandwiches at Market & Rye
CHIPS AHOY

Dorito Sandwiches at Market & Rye

It’s hard to top french fries stuffed into sandwiches, but former Top Chef contestant Ryan Scott is upping the ante. At his new West Portal sandwich shop, you can get chicken salad topped with Cool Ranch Doritos or roast beef with Funyuns—which may or may not count as a vegetable...

Renting Cabines at Coppola’s
CABINE PRESSURE

Renting Cabines at Coppola’s

Even though you’ll be skiing well into April, that doesn’t mean you can’t plan for swim season. And since the good people at Coppola are opening their pools and cabines for the year, you can reserve this summer’s poolside spots now. Trust us, hydrating with chardonnay will be a thing.

Saturday
Otter Wax at Welcome Stranger
WAX ON, WAX OFF

Otter Wax at Welcome Stranger

We might think we know a thing or two about rain, but we’ve got nothing on Portland. So drop into Welcome Stranger and watch Chris, the founder of Portland-based Otter Wax, demonstrate how to waterproof shoes, jackets and jeans. You’ll probably like to know that actual otters are not part of the demo.

Sunday
Nick’s Cove Does Brunch (and S’mores)
S’MORES THE MERRIER

Nick’s Cove Does Brunch (and S’mores)

Oysters and Tomales Bay go hand in hand. But that shouldn’t preclude things like Dungeness crab Benedict or brioche french toast now that Nick’s Cove is doing brunch. They’re also making s’mores kits—which, we all would agree, also make the cut.
