The Weekender

Bourbon, Burgers and Your Next Date

And the lifetime achievement award goes to... the weekend.

Thursday
No More Chasing Down Naughty Naan
CURRY VILLAGE

No More Chasing Down Naughty Naan

You’ve diligently kept up with the Curry Up Now truck’s whereabouts over the years. Search no more: they’ve got a brick-and-mortar spot for their deconstructed samosas, pork-belly burritos and the meat-piled Naughty Naan. What it lacks in wheels, it makes up for in tables.

Now open, Curry Up Now, 659 Valencia St (near 18th), 650-477-1001

Take Your Next Art Date Here

You’ve always said that a meal at Bar Tartine was like a work of art. Well, someone really agrees with you. Like the artist behind this show of watercolors that depict dishes from Mission Chinese, Craftsman & Wolves and more. There’ll be snacks from Craftsman & Wolves, too. Life really does imitate art.

Reception Feb 21, 6-9pm, exhibit through Mar 21, Pot + Pantry, 593 Guerrero St (at 18th), 415-206-1134

Friday
This Week in Bourbon Cocktails
DISTILL MY BEATING HEART

This Week in Bourbon Cocktails

Bourbon: you’re a fan. So here’s a few new bourbon cocktails worth your while: the Manhattan-like 5th and Midnight at Rye; Bourbon & Branch’s Rough and Tumble (served with an IPA float); Clock Bar’s Bourbon in My Blood (with blood-orange liqueur) and ultimate aperitif, Shot Through the Heart. Bon Jovi approves.

Saturday
Burgers. French Ones. In Sausalito...
FRENCH FRIES

Burgers. French Ones. In Sausalito...

French burgers. That’s what is going on at this new place. Also: tater tots called pommes dauphines. But mostly French burgers, like ones made with chorizo jam or wild-boar bacon. In France, they call it a Royale with boar.

Tuesday
You, Training for the Tour de France
BREAKING AWAY

You, Training for the Tour de France

Your journey toward wearing the yellow jersey starts here. It’s a class, led by pro cyclists, that uses actual 20-speed road bikes attached to a computer that calculates your true cycling intensity. Just don’t try anything Lance Armstrong used.
