The Weekender

A Sake Tasting, Partying with Gnomes and Ted Baker

Bay to Breakers is dressing up as the weekend.

Thursday
This Party Has Gnomes and Beer
GNOME IF YOU WANT TO

This Party Has Gnomes and Beer

This just in: there’s a gnome-themed anniversary party at Suppenküche tonight. Repeat: gnome-themed. We’re not sure what that has to do with all the sausage and beer specials or the DJ or the fact that they’re clearing out the restaurant for you. But hey... gnomes.

May 16, 5pm-close, Suppenküche, 525 Laguna St (at Hayes), 415-252-9289

Ted Baker Turns 25. You Celebrate.
BAKE SALE

Ted Baker Turns 25. You Celebrate.

When you walk into Ted Baker tonight, some things are going to happen. People will hand you gin cocktails. You will be entered to win a trip to the Scottish Highlands. And you will pay 25% less than normal for anything in the store. Is what’s going to happen.

Cocktailing in a Bunch of Hotel Rooms
GET A ROOM

Cocktailing in a Bunch of Hotel Rooms

The Phoenix Hotel is about to turn into an art gallery for your general amusement. Hop from room to room. Check out a different artist in each of them. Then decamp to the pool courtyard with a cocktail to reflect upon what you’ve seen. Reflect. Stand there and drink. Same thing.

Friday
It’s Called Kitchen Mojo. It’s New.
KITCHEN UN-CONFIDENTIAL

It’s Called Kitchen Mojo. It’s New.

Popcorn shrimp kimchi po’boys. Korean spicy pork cheesesteaks. Fish tacos. If these are the types of things that interest you, you’ll also be interested in Kitchen Mojo. It’s a casual new spot from the guys behind HRD Coffee Shop and Smoking Grill. Carry on.

Now open, Kitchen Mojo, 300 De Haro St (at 16th), 415-552-6656

Monday
You + a Japanese Sake Wizard = This
JAPAN THE MAN

You + a Japanese Sake Wizard = This

Sake is delicious. It’s just the way it is. So when the owner and president of a Japanese sake brewery shows up at Izakaya Yuzuki to let you sample his wares... that’s a good thing. It’s a five-course dinner with sake pairings. Yeah, you should probably go to that.

May 20, 6:30 and 7:30pm, $100, Izakaya Yuzuki, 598 Guerrero St (at 18th), 415-556-9898
