Things to do for May 24, 2012

The Weekender

Tracy Morgan, a BBQ Truck and Vintage Watches

The weekend is going for the trifecta.

Thursday
Tracy Morgan, Doing His Thing
LEAVE NO TRACY

Tracy Morgan, Doing His Thing

Tracy Jordan. Brian Fellows. That crazy dude who takes his shirt off on talk shows. All, of course, characters played by Tracy Morgan. But it’s time to get to know the real Tracy—or at least see him do stand-up. No word on what Jack Donaghy’s up to this weekend.

Friday
A Truck Chock-Full of BBQ
ON CUE

A Truck Chock-Full of BBQ

Hypothesis: when a great restaurant rolls out a food truck, the food truck will be great, too. Test case: the new BBQ truck from Wexler’s Back, serving up brisket, ribs, pulled pork and chicken. Conclusion: hypothesis is correct. And delicious.

Debuts May 25, weekday lunch 11am-2pm, Wexler’s Back, 565 Commercial St (at Montgomery), 415-874-9687

Sharp Vintage Watches at Taylor Stitch
WATCHMEN

Sharp Vintage Watches at Taylor Stitch

This one’s for you. Specifically, your wrist. The watch-obsessed fellas behind Hodinkee, the definitive watch blog out of New York, are in town for the weekend and are selling a stockpile of highly coveted vintage Rolexes, Omegas and Breitlings from the ’40s to the ’80s. Also: don’t be late.

Party May 25, 5-8pm; pop-up through May 27, 11am-7pm; Taylor Stitch, 383 Valencia (at 15th St), 415-322-8773

Sunday
A Terrace Party at Cavallo Point
BRIDGING THE GAP

A Terrace Party at Cavallo Point

The good people at Cavallo Point are throwing a BBQ-soaked bash on their terrace overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge, which happens to be turning 75. This deserves fireworks, so those will be going off, too, fog permitting. (Feel free to bring a date and create your own, just in case.)

May 27, 6-10pm, $75, Cavallo Point, 601 Murray Cir, Sausalito, 415-339-4700

Monday
Luau-ing at Baker Beach
SLOW ROAST

Luau-ing at Baker Beach

You’ve got your Dolores Park/Namu Gaji routine down. But on Monday, there’ll be a change of venue. Head to Baker Beach and look for the pig roasting underground, Hawaiian-style, along with a spread of lomilomi salmon, poke and poi. It’s BYOB, but you can handle that.

May 28, noon-4pm, $50, Baker Beach (at Gibson Rd), tickets here
