Things to do for April 18, 2013

The Weekender

Bocce Picnics and a Skeet-Shooting Dinner. Weekend: Engage.

To err is human; to weekend, divine.

Thursday
Go to Art Gallery. Eat. Drink. Rejoice.
FUND FOR ALL

Go to Art Gallery. Eat. Drink. Rejoice.

Lolinda. Starbelly. Bar Crudo. Pig & Pie. Mosto. These are restaurants and bars. Moreover, these are restaurants and bars that will be doling out all manner of pork balls, English-pea-and-mascarpone bruschetta and bourbon/tequila/mezcal-heavy cocktails in an art gallery tonight. It’s a fundraiser thing. Which, coincidentally, you now love.

Friday
Pal’s Turns Four. Sandwiches Ensue.
BE A PAL

Pal’s Turns Four. Sandwiches Ensue.

Big four-year anniversary celebration at Pal’s Take Away tomorrow. They invited a bunch of sandwich-making guest stars, too. Like Pal’s vet Dave Knopp. He’s bringing smoked, coffee-rubbed pulled pork. And Laurence Jossel from Nopa. He’s bringing a bunch of house-cured tasso-ham sandwiches. You can just bring your mouth.

Saturday
Six Courses and Michelin Stars. Yay.
NAKED GUNS

Six Courses and Michelin Stars. Yay.

Consider your Saturday night plans locked. Assuming you like eating six-course dinners prepared by two chefs who’ve cooked in Michelin-starred restaurants, that is. You see, there’s this 11-seat-only pop-up dinner at Naked Kitchen. There’ll be cod with seaweed butter. There’ll be braised pork. There’ll be you all giddy and excited.

Sunday
Picnic Season: Looking Up These Days
GRID LOCK

Picnic Season: Looking Up These Days

Off the Grid’s Presidio picnic is back starting this Sunday. Which means, among other things, bocce, horseshoes, cocktails and whatever alternate versions of advanced blanketry you had in mind. And yes, plenty of edible things from the likes of Nopalito, Haven and Del Popolo. Oh, and kites. You should definitely fly kites, too.

Buckshot and Lamb Terrine. Go.
SKEET AND GREET

Buckshot and Lamb Terrine. Go.

When you think dinner, you think skeet shooting. Correction: when you think dinner, you don’t think skeet shooting. Unless you’re at the Pacific Rod & Gun Club on Sunday. First: a round of skeet shooting. Then: an eight-dish family-style meal (quail, lamb terrine...) paired with five wines. Somewhere, Hemingway is smiling.
