Things to do for October 04, 2012
Oktoberfest, Hot Wings and Mick Jagger
The weekend likes Big Bird, too.
Lunching on Japanese in the Mission
Your friends at Ken Ken Ramen and Boba Guys have your lunch in mind. See, their new mostly-takeout offshoot is specializing in bento boxes (including kimchi pork and fried chicken). They’ve got milk teas and cheesecake, too. Nothing goes with kimchi pork like milk tea.
Technically, Sunday is the last day of Munich’s official 16-day beer extravaganza. Technically. But at Schmidt’s, they’re keeping Oktoberfest going all month with one-liter mugs of seasonal Bavarian beers, beer flights, pretzels and brats. Lederhosen, as always, are encouraged.
The Rolling Stones. Those guys were really, really... photogenic. As you can see in this exhibit of limited-edition prints from ’72—some iconic, some never-before-released. We understand the guys could play the guitar a little, too.
Blanketside Cocktailing in the Presidio
The Off the Grid guys are putting on a picnic—with food from restaurants like Nopalito, Bar Crudo and Dixie. They’ll have games for rent like bocce, croquet and horseshoes. And they’ll deliver small-batch cocktails to your blanket all day long. We probably should’ve mentioned that part first.
Lucky 13’s first-ever wings-eating contest has two categories: timed eating (10 minutes to eat the most Angry Korean Wings) and Hella Hella Hot (eating 10 Hella Hella Hot wings the fastest). You should know this is a fund-raiser for kids. Hey, anything for a good cause...
