The Weekender

Rappelling Off the Top of a Building

Where there’s a weekend, there’s a way.

Thursday
Pizza and Pitchers at the American
PITCHER PERFECT

Pizza and Pitchers at the American

The Del Popolo truck’s popping up at the American Grilled Cheese Kitchen tomorrow. What will be there: pizza, of course, and beers from Linden Street and Pac Brew Labs. What won’t be there: grilled cheese. Oh, the irony.

Cocktailing at the New E&O
LOUNGE ACT

Cocktailing at the New E&O

The Union Square spot just got revitalized/reconcepted, with a new lounge-oriented focus. You’ll find a raw bar, small bites like ahi tuna poppers and Asian-influenced drinks like the gin/elderflower Concubine. Actual concubines: you’re on your own for those.

Friday
Rappelling Down a Hotel in Union Square
CHARITY CASE

Rappelling Down a Hotel in Union Square

You and Ethan Hunt have a lot in common. Okay, that’s not true, but you do have this: rappelling off of buildings. Your version: a 425-foot drop off the roof of the Grand Hyatt, which comes with a donation to Special Olympics Northern California. Playing the Mission: Impossible theme: optional.

Saturday
French-Mexican Food, It’s a Thing
MAMAN MIA

French-Mexican Food, It’s a Thing

Imagine a ménage à trois with you, Marion Cotillard and Salma Hayek. We’ll give you a minute. Now add food to the equation. Now subtract Marion and Salma. What you’re left with: this place, the Potrero bistro’s new sister restaurant, serving up mussels, crepes and... quesadillas. Okay, you can add Marion and Salma back now.

Tuesday
You, Jimmy Stewart and 100 Martinis
SCREENSHOT

You, Jimmy Stewart and 100 Martinis

The views at the Mark’s penthouse bar: panoramic. So panoramic, in fact, that you can see Washington, DC, from there. Well, kind of—they’re screening Hollywood classics with popcorn, gratis wine and that epic martini list. Next up: Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. You love a good filibuster.

Tuesdays through Sep 4, wine tasting 5:30pm, movie 7:30pm, Top of the Mark, 1 Nob Hill (at California), 415-616-6916
