Things to do for July 05, 2012
This Weekend: Bacon, Swedes and Gene Hackman
Who’s on first. The weekend’s on second.
You, in a Basement with Gene Hackman
Tonight, getting a (gratis) membership to Lost Weekend Video gets you inside their new, 25-seat subterranean movie den. Tonight’s double feature, dubbed “Paranoid in SF,” consists of The Conversation and Invasion of the Body Snatchers. BYO popcorn.
SF’s First/Only Scandinavian Restaurant
It’s a common predicament. You’re going to the symphony. And you’re dying for some herring. Okay, that never happens, but on the off chance it does, go here: a handsome new spot serving up Scandinavian charcuterie, beer and cocktails. No word on girls with dragon tattoos.
Alfresco Drinking at Dixie
Not like you need another excuse to take over Dixie’s veranda, but we found one anyway: $5 drinks and gratis homemade BBQ potato chips. The star drink: The Debutante, made with bourbon, bitters and smoked cane syrup. You’ve been meaning to add more smoked syrup to your diet.
40% Off a Silly Amount of Shoes
The guys at Gimme Shoes really have your back. And by back, we of course mean feet. Drop by one of their three stores for 40% off, say, wingtips from Florsheim by Duckie Brown or brogues from Grenson. Your feet will thank you later.
Bacon Gone Wild in Healdsburg
We hate to break it to you, but your wine tasting’s been missing something: pork. Here to rectify that: Zazu’s new bacon-obsessed sanctuary in the Davis Family Vineyards tasting room. Expect Black Pig bacon, maple bacon popcorn and chicharrón peanut butter cups. Our apologies to Reese’s.
