The Weekender

A First-of-Its-Kind Music Fest in Wine Country

The weekend’s mom is the bestest mom in the whole wide world.

Thursday
60 Bands + Wine Country = This
FEST LAID PLANS

60 Bands + Wine Country = This

The last time you went to a huge four-day music festival in Napa was... never. And that’s probably because this one is the first of its kind. Think 60 bands (the Black Keys, the Shins...). Three stages. Thirty restaurants and food trucks. Beer. And, right. Probably some wine, too.

Friday
There’s a Rhea’s in the Mission Now
WINGING IT

There’s a Rhea’s in the Mission Now

Let’s talk about Rhea’s. You know Rhea’s. That bastion of sandwich majesty that’s been keeping you in Korean steak sandwiches for years now. Well, they just opened a new location in the Mission. Look for new things like Korean fried chicken wings and actual table seating. You’ve earned this.

Saturday
Chocolate and Bourbon. It’s a Date.
CHOC AND AWE

Chocolate and Bourbon. It’s a Date.

The bar manager at Hog & Rocks and the chocolate maker at Dandelion Chocolate are getting together on Saturday. This is great news for you. Because, well... bourbon-and-chocolate tasting. Rare Venezuelan chocolate paired with rarer George T. Stagg bourbon. That’s the gist here. Your date gets it.

Small Plates, Pisco and Glory
LUCKY NUMBER 27

Small Plates, Pisco and Glory

A gigantic, two-story Peruvian small-plates restaurant. You’ve got one of those on your hands now. It’s in Pacifica. It’s from the guys behind Fresca and Pasion. And it’s got Peruvian fried rice with sea urchin, churros and ever so much pisco. You should probably go there now.

Sunday
Locanda’s No Pizza Pop-Up Brunch
MOM’S THE WORD

Locanda’s No Pizza Pop-Up Brunch

Brunch at Locanda. That’s a thing that doesn’t really happen. But as a preview of what you can expect when the new Pizzeria Delfina opens in Burlingame, they’re staging a little brunch pop-up. Take your mom. Eat cornmeal corzetti pancakes. Drink Bellinis. Sing her a song. Moms love that s**t.

May 12, 10:30am-1pm, Locanda, 557 Valencia St (at 16th), 415-863-6800
