Go to Unionmade, Pretty Much Right Now

Your weekend forecast: 70 degrees, maybe. Your other weekend forecast: 40% off on preppy Gant shirts, Levi’s Vintage denim... and some warm layers from Pendleton, in case you’re feeling pessimistic about your first forecast’s chances.

Ongoing online and in-store, Unionmade, 493 Sanchez St (at 18th), 415-861-3373

Friday
A Bigger, Better Bun Mee
BUN AND DONE

A Bigger, Better Bun Mee

After an unexpectedly debaucherous Thursday night dissolves into a painful Friday, you start asking yourself the difficult questions. Like if you need a banh mi or a sloppy joe. Luckily, the new Bun Mee, twice the original’s size, has that Sloppy Bun—a Vietnamese sloppy joe, sorta. Difficult questions averted.

Now open, Bun Mee, 650 Market St (at New Montgomery), 415-362-8663

Saturday
Pie Brunch. Pie Brunch. Pie Brunch.
CAN’T PIE ME LOVE

Pie Brunch. Pie Brunch. Pie Brunch.

You know what would be really sad, would be if a place called Chile Pies boldly moved into the pie-for-brunch sphere, with egg-filled pies, walnut-and-syrup pies, all sorts of pies, really, and if when they did this you didn’t go eat pie for brunch this weekend. Wouldn’t that be sad?

Sunday
More Cheese Than You’ve Ever Seen
TRUTH OR DAIRY

More Cheese Than You’ve Ever Seen

The Oscars, the Super Bowl—whatever. Hard to care too much when the contenders aren’t cheese. So: Sunday at Public Works, the Cheesemonger Invitational is basically the Super Bowl of cheese. You can sample thousands of cheeses while cheese makers battle for important cheese-related titles, or ribbons or something. Anyway. Cheese.

CABIN IN THE WOODS

Where to Catch the 49ers Game

When Bigfoot Lodge closed, things were looking kind of bleak on your drinking-in-rustic-cabin-bars front. Were. Now Cabin is open in that spot, log walls intact, only with more martini options and 49er-attuned flat-screens. Suddenly, it’s like Bigfoot wasn’t real.

Now open, Cabin, 1750 Polk St (at Washington), 415-440-2355
