The weekend is back to its old tricks.

CART BLANCHE

Think of It as Sushi’s Cousin

Onigiri. Apparently, it’s a sushi-like samurai snack, made with rice and meat. Well, these Japan-born purveyors of the stuff—their name’s a play on the word—have graduated from a humble food cart to a full-on restaurant in FiDi. Leave your samurai sword at home.

Mon-Fri, 11am-3pm, Onigilly, 343 Kearny St (at Pine), 415-671-4706

NIGHT WATCH

When Drinking and Shopping Collide...

Tonight is Fashion’s Night Out, and a bunch of Union Square shops want to celebrate. Mostly by giving you drinks. At Porsche Design: cocktails. At Paul Smith: wine. Apparently, some of the stores will also sell you clothes.

Friday
The City’s Next Big Boat Race Is...
SAILS FORCE

The City’s Next Big Boat Race Is...

The America’s Cup World Series: fun. Also: over. But we’ve got more coming our way. At this weekend’s Rolex Big Boat Series regatta, nearly 70 boats (both monohull and catamarans) will compete in seven races over four days. Gotta love a good monohull.

Saturday
Behold: Ice Cream S’more Sliders
SLIP ’N SLIDE

Behold: Ice Cream S’more Sliders

The same bakers who brought you Peking-duck scones are at it again. This time, they’ve taken inspiration from a campfire favorite (s’mores), added chocolate ice cream and put it into the irresistible form of a burger with a homemade graham-flavored brioche bun. Campfire not included.

Sunday
Negroni-Braised Pulled Pork Is Here
LET’S TANGO

Negroni-Braised Pulled Pork Is Here

Negronis. Delicious to drink. Turns out, just as delicious to eat. See, this Michael Mina and Gary Danko vet uses Negronis in his signature BBQ sauce, which you can try at his new soul-food pop-up in the Mission. The short rib martini can’t be far behind...
