Things to do for May 23, 2013
It’s a Long Weekend. You’ll Need Endless Beer and New Sandwiches.
The weekend is kidnapping Monday.
Like Build-A-Bear for Whiskey Cocktails
Capo’s is doing this new thing called Whiskey Hour. It’s where you customize your own Old Fashioneds. Just tell them what you want in it (bacon-infused maple syrup, honey, agave, candied ginger...) and they’ll make it for you. For $6. Don’t screw this up.
Ten breweries are getting together tonight. Good ones like Magnolia and Anchor. And you’re going to meet them at the Old Mint for unlimited tastings. Also, a bunch of talks and exhibits from local brewmasters and beer historians. So hopefully you don’t hate learning. Or beer.
This Place Opens. Sandwiches Ensue.
We’re going to assume that the thought of eating sandwiches doesn’t offend you. So it stands to reason that this new rotisserie-focused breakfast-and-lunch spot near the Civic Center won’t offend you either. They’ve got Italian-style sandwiches. Lots of them. And beers. Lots of those, too.
What You’re Wearing This Weekend
Gitman Bros. Wings + Horns. Reigning Champ. If you walk into Acrimony or Acre/SF over the long weekend, you can buy things from the likes of those guys for 30% less than normal. It’s a Memorial Day weekend sale. And by our calculations, those are pretty splendid.
Slacklining. You’re about to do that for free next Thursday. You know slacklining. It’s that thing where you bounce around and balance on a tiny tightrope like that guy from Madonna’s Super Bowl halftime show last year. And hopefully look way less weird doing it.
