Things to do for September 13, 2012

The Weekender

Poker, Churros and Mrs. Robinson

The weekend is compatible with Lightning.

Thursday
Getting Lucky at a Museum
NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM

Getting Lucky at a Museum

Tonight, a few Stanford and Berkeley statisticians—as well as card-counting experts—will divulge the art and science behind games of chance. Then, along with picking up all kinds of poker tips, you’ll partake in a cocktail tour spanning five bars. We like your odds. (Well, so to speak.)

Friday
Chartreuse on Tap at Grand Cafe
TAP DANCING

Chartreuse on Tap at Grand Cafe

Beer, wine, water—all great from the tap. Now add Chartreuse to the list. Turns out, Grand Cafe is putting this liqueur—once made by Carthusian monks in the 1700s—on draft. You can get it with a Kronenbourg or mixed with cognac in the Grand Old Fashioned. Those monks were on to something...

Available now at Grand Cafe, 501 Geary St (at Taylor), 415-292-0101

Saturday
Delfina Gets in the Picnic-Basket Game
LIFE’S A PICNIC

Delfina Gets in the Picnic-Basket Game

Dinner and a movie: easy. Especially when dinner is a picnic basket stocked with peppers, cannoli, pizza and a bottle of red wine. Oh, and the movie’s The Graduate, showing at Dolores Park. BYO Mrs. Robinson.

Sunday
Pig & Pie, Now with Brunch
PIE IN THE SKY

Pig & Pie, Now with Brunch

Pig & Pie’s already your go-to spot for late-night sausage and pie. Now, it’s opening up for brunch. Expect Green Eggs and Ham (the menu’s a pinch Seussian), cast-iron bread pudding, and biscuits and gravy. Expect those things, because they have them.

Tuesday
Pairing Wine with Tex-Mex
GOING SOUTH OF THE BORDER

Pairing Wine with Tex-Mex

Fancy wine. Mexican food. That’s what’s going on here. Chili verde. Carnitas tacos. Churros. Paired with pinot or riesling. If you’re thinking a date might come in handy here, you’re thinking correctly.

Sep 18-19, 6pm, $35, Maverick, 3316 17th St (near Hoff), reserve at 415-863-3061
