Things to do for October 10, 2013

The Weekender

Wine, Jenga, Belts and Tequila-Braised Rabbit

The weekend requires weekly watering and direct sunlight.

Thursday
Friday
Paella, Cava and Jenga
RICE RICE BABY

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.

Now open, Venga Paella, 229 Brush St (at 3rd), Oakland, 510-628-0018

A Denim-Genius Pop-Up with a Twist
JACK OF A FEW TRADES

A Denim-Genius Pop-Up with a Twist

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.

Saturday
More Lemongrass Pork, Please
WHAT’S IN THE BOX

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.

Tuesday
Tango & Stache Got You Ceviche
TAKES TWO

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.

Next Saturday
50 Beers on the Good Ship O’Brien
ONE FINE BAY

50 Beers on the Good Ship O’Brien

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.
