The Weekender

Off-Menu Donut Sandwiches and Marilyn Monroe

Same Bat-time. Same Bat-weekend.

Thursday
Friday
Donuts + Fried Chicken = This
SECRET SERVICE

Donuts + Fried Chicken = This

Donuts: great. Fried chicken: pretty great, too. Put the two together, and it’s a mess. A magical, greasy mess known as the Dough Boy, a new off-menu gem at the ArKi Truck. An ensuing food coma’s all but assured.

Midnight Snacks in SoMa Until 4am
TRUCK STOP

Midnight Snacks in SoMa Until 4am

We’ve got good news. The SoMa StrEat Food Park promises to open from midnight to 4am on weekends. You’ll have a rotating roster of roughly a dozen trucks to choose from (think: Naked Chorizo, La Pastrami, Golden Waffle), with wine/beer until 2am. Late-night just became the new brunch...

Saturday
Marilyn Monroe, in Full Glory
MY WEEK WITH MARILYN

Marilyn Monroe, in Full Glory

Marilyn Monroe. Legend, actress, wearer of billowing white dresses. Get to know her a bit more at this special show of nearly 40 never-been-exhibited, first-run photos taken by the guy who took that dress shot. The dress itself could not be reached for comment.

Opening party Aug 4, 7-10pm, show runs through Sep 15, SF Art Exchange, 458 Geary St, RSVP at 415-441-8840

Hlaska Reopens on Fillmore
IN THE BAG

Hlaska Reopens on Fillmore

The people at Hlaska are reopening their Pac Heights store to unveil a new collection of colorful carry-things—wallets and bags and so on. And if you’re covered in that department, you’ll want to know they’re also bringing back a full line of wear-things.

Opens Aug 4, Hlaska, 2033 Fillmore St (at California), 800-784-4154

Monday
Shh... You Can Still Get Some Foie Gras
FOIE YOUR CONSIDERATION

Shh... You Can Still Get Some Foie Gras

Ah, the heady days of... earlier this year, when foie gras was totally, almost comically legal. Well, those days are back. Okay, not really, but Txoko is offering to cook any foie gras you might have stored for a slight “corkage” fee. You knew that stockpile’d come in handy sometime.

Nightly, Txoko, 504 Broadway (at Kearny), 415-500-2744
