Things to do for August 29, 2013

The Weekender

Soul Bowling and Oyster-Shucking Lessons. Let’s Weekend.

Two’s company, three’s a weekend.

Thursday
The Second Coming of Tu Lan
PHO MEANS YES

The Second Coming of Tu Lan

Tu Lan. Now there’s a place with some... history. Anyway, it closed. But now it’s open again with a brand-new kitchen pumping out the same semilegendary pho, imperial rolls and pork fried rice it always has. Nothing like a good semilegendary lunch.

Now open, Tu Lan, 8 6th St (at Market), 415-626-0927

Friday
A Night of Pants and Shirts and Bikes
SPIN CYCLE

A Night of Pants and Shirts and Bikes

If you stop by Steven Alan on Fillmore tomorrow night, you’ll notice something different. Bikes. There’s going to be a lot of bikes. Because that’s when the Shinola Bike Tour stops in from Detroit to showcase their all-steel, all-dashing rides for one night only. Bonus: they’ll still be surrounded by pants.

Saturday
Oyster-Shucking Class. It’s Happening.
SHELL CHECK

Oyster-Shucking Class. It’s Happening.

You’ll meet your instructor on the deck of Nick’s Cove off Highway 1. He’ll hand you a knife. Maybe a beer. Then, he’ll teach you how to shuck oysters. And he’s going to do all of this because it’s an oyster-shucking class and that’s how these things work.

Available now by reservation only, Nick’s Cove, 23240 Highway 1, Marshall, reserve at 415-663-1033 or here

Monday
A Sexy and Soulful Evening of... Bowling
SOUL POSITION

A Sexy and Soulful Evening of... Bowling

It’s called Soul & Bowl. And, as you can probably imagine, it involves free shoe rental, a DJ spinning classic soul records and guest bartender Daniel Hyatt of Roka Akor and Alembic fame mixing the cocktails for the evening. And if you didn’t imagine that... it’s called Soul & Bowl.

Next Friday
It’s Probably Too Much Wine, but Here...
WINE LANGUAGE

It’s Probably Too Much Wine, but Here...

This weekend’s plans: locked. Next weekend’s plans: also locked. Because you’re going to Winesong in Mendocino. Look for wine from nearly 100 wineries like Goldeneye and Husch, an auction and live music from jazz, big band, calypso and Celtic folk bands. Riverdancing optional but highly recommended.
