Kung Fu Fries and 16 Beers This Weekend, Please
Shine on, you crazy weekend.
Everybody Was Kung Fu Frying...
If you’ve never eaten Kung Fu Fries, it’s possible you haven’t truly lived. They’re topped with five-spice pork, dashi gravy and mozzarella, and they’re at the new Street Food Dojo. Used to be a pop-up, now it’s... popped down... permanently. Think kimchi fried rice and Spam musubi. And think fries.
Things you’d expect to find at Alite’s camping-friendly sale: backpacks, sleeping bags and bonfire-worthy chairs at up to 75% off. Things you wouldn’t: a beer pop-up from Comrade Brewing (Friday) and a slingshot challenge (Saturday). So, guess what we’re saying is, readjust your expectations.
Like Comstock Saloon, but Better
Meet Comstock Saloon. Oh, you’ve already met. Well, you think you know someone, then they close for a while and reopen with a nicer space, a second bar and beer-brined pork chops. Fridays, though, they’ll still buy your lunch when you buy two drinks. So they haven’t forgotten their roots.
Headlands Pop-Ups, Just Everywhere
Bow ties, aprons, Tanner Goods key fobs, wooden flashlights: these are things you buy for people when you have no idea what to buy for them. So go to the Headlands pop-up shops and do that. A bunch of ’em have sprouted all over town like weeds. Really helpful weeds.
Torpedo Room Has 16 Beer Taps
You’ve got just one thing to do at the new beer-tasting spot in Berkeley. Scratch that. Just 16 things to do. The 16 rotating taps unleashing saisons and IPAs should keep you busy. Also, they’ve got plenty of bottles, growlers and cases to go. So that’s a lot of things.
