Things to do for August 08, 2012

The Weekender

Francis Ford Coppola, the Rolling Stones and Sandwiches

The weekend’s workin’ on mysteries without any clues.

Wednesday
Gourmet Big Macs in the Metreon
BREAKING BREAD

Gourmet Big Macs in the Metreon

The Mixt Greens guys have branched out into the sandwich world. Their crown jewel: putting rotisserie meats between sliced bread. The No. 00’s roasted short rib/American cheese/English muffin combo resembles a gourmet Big Mac. Only here you’ll also be able to order one of 18 beers with that. Beats supersizing.

Thursday
Sandwiches. Coffee. You Know What to Do.
NEW DELI

Sandwiches. Coffee. You Know What to Do.

So the Foreign Cinema team has opened a sandwich offshoot in mid-Market. For breakfast: Four Barrel coffee and sticky buns. For lunch: the Drill Press (their pastrami melt). For dinner: you go somewhere else.

The Best America’s Cup Seats
ANCHORS AWAY

The Best America’s Cup Seats

In two weeks, the Marina Green will be transformed into the America’s Cup Village for the World Series races. The best seats in the house will be the bleachers in the Deck, across from the finish line—with access to food, beverages and private bathrooms. They’re on sale first thing tomorrow. Act accordingly.

Tickets available Aug 9, 10am, for Aug 21-26, $25, The Deck in Marina Green, tickets here

Friday
Talk Movies with Francis Ford Coppola
FORD TOUGH

Talk Movies with Francis Ford Coppola

The mighty director himself will be on hand for questions following the 4:45 and 7:15pm screenings of his new thriller, Twixt. (Turns out his inspiration came about after consuming large quantities of the traditional Turkish liquor raki with a lawyer and her sister.) Apparently, the guy makes more than wine.

Tuesday
A Rolling Stones Concert... Film
ROLLING ROCK

A Rolling Stones Concert... Film

In 1978, the Rolling Stones strapped on their guitars, tinkered with disco and took the whole show on the road behind their Some Girls album (think: “Beast of Burden,” “Miss You”). Among their stops: Fort Worth. There was a camera crew. This film’s the result. Spoiler alert: they finally get some satisfaction.

Aug 14 and 16, 7:30pm, Balboa Theatre, 3630 Balboa St (at 37th), 415-221-8184
