Things to do for May 11, 2012

The Weekender

The International Dodgeball Championships and Other Weekend Pursuits

The weekend is where the wild things are.

Friday
Trampoline Dodgeball Championships
AIR BALL

Trampoline Dodgeball Championships

You and 11 of your nimblest associates have kept your dodgeball prowess on the down low. But come Saturday, teams from all over the world will come to House of Air and witness your mastery. Better start breaking in your headbands now.

Registration available May 11; event May 12, 6-10pm; $20, House of Air, 926 Mason St (in the Presidio), 415-345-9675, register here

Saturday
A Chili Cook-Off at Dr. Teeth
RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS

A Chili Cook-Off at Dr. Teeth

You never need an excuse to hang out on Dr. Teeth’s sunny patio. But in addition to the usual shenanigans and cocktails, this weekend you’ll find a chili cook-off. Do your part as judge. Then stoke your competitive edge with cutthroat games of cornhole. Or, you know, games of cornhole.

Sunday
Michelin-Starred Germans at Cotogna
MICHELIN MAN

Michelin-Starred Germans at Cotogna

Sure, it’s Mother’s Day. But that doesn’t mean you can’t infuse Oktoberfest-inspired festivities into the mix. For one night only, this Italian den is hosting the spätzle-obsessed chefs from three-star Michelin restaurant Amador in Mannheim. Go ahead and prepare the lederhosen.

Monday
The Roaming Slider Shack Truck
ALOHA STATE

The Roaming Slider Shack Truck

Luaus. Hula dancers. Kalua pork sliders. You’ll find one of these things at the city’s latest food truck, the Hawaii-inspired Slider Shack. No, not the hula dancers... though we’re sure your coconut bikini would be welcome.

Wednesday
A New Korean Joint in Oakland
BOX OFFICE

A New Korean Joint in Oakland

Here you go: a new spot that’s like the Korean equivalent of an izakaya (those salaryman bars where Japanese businessmen go to sake-bomb away their troubles). For now, it’s lunch—skewers and various versions of pork belly. But soon, you’ll get dinners with bacon mochi. Key word being bacon.
