Things to do for October 10, 2013
Wine, Jenga, Belts and Tequila-Braised Rabbit
The weekend requires weekly watering and direct sunlight.
Paella, Cava and Jenga
Paella date alert: at the new Venga Paella, you’ll take over a corner of the redwood bar for a bottle of cava and one of three paellas (classic, squid ink or vegetarian). There’s only one way this can all end. Yep, Jenga. Play it in the lounge area, which is open Fridays.
Friday night at Voyager is the kickoff party for a three-day pop-up from Jack/Knife, known for encasing your thighs in the finest deadstock Cone denim. But in a shocking twist, you’ll see no denim at this pop-up—more like belts, bandannas and passport holders. Also, Bruce Willis is a ghost.
More Lemongrass Pork, Please
There are lunches where you have lemongrass-marinated pork and housemade sriracha, and lunches where you don’t. Hit the new Asian Box (where Wolfgang Puck was, in the Macy’s basement) for the first type. You probably shouldn’t turn your lunch into some sort of foreboding cautionary tale.
Tango & Stache Got You Ceviche
Fine, you’ll say it: the last Tango & Stache pop-up could’ve really used a four-course dinner inspired by some region of Mexico. Any region. Now there’s a new dinner series that’s... that. First muse: Oaxaca. First meal: shrimp ceviche, chorizo, tequila-braised rabbit and spiked apple cobbler. You should say things more often.
This weekend: have some beers. Next weekend: have 50 beers on the SS Jeremiah O’Brien, docked in the bay off Fisherman’s Wharf. Think good local brews, food trucks, music and views of the Golden Gate Bridge. You could swear you’ve heard of that bridge.
