Things to do for February 27, 2014
Coffee, Umami and King Cake
The weekend didn’t see that one coming, not in a million years.
The Heroic Reboot of Aggregate Supply
Spring is coming. You can taste it. Tastes like weekend-friendly Chester Wallace bags, Pendleton blankets and Moroccan snacks. The snacks are at the opening party for the new incarnation of Aggregate Supply, now run by the Turk + Taylor guys, and are probably the best-tasting things, honestly.
Sightglass Coffee, Now on 20th
You’ve had a real problem with the original Sightglass in SoMa. Sure, the coffee’s great, but the place lacks tufted-leather banquettes, a lush art deco vibe and a 1969 five-kilo Probat tending to the beans. Well, you shouldn’t have any problems with the new location.
Here, Have a Guatemalan Hot Dog
Your deadline: 2:30am. Your location: the Mission. Your task: procure Guatemalan hot dog from the new Los Shucos. Toppings include avocado, scrambled eggs and green salsa chapina (it’s a Guatemalan thing). Hard to imagine why you’d crave one of these at 2:30am, but...
Meet Umami’s New Caprese Burger
You’ve tossed. Turned. Looked longingly out raindrop-dotted windows. It’s been tough waiting to find out what Umami SoMa’s exclusive burger would be. Well, it’s the Caprese Burger, with heirloom tomatoes, burrata, basil-almond pesto, an arugula/basil blend and balsamic-truffle reduction. You were hoping for a balsamic-truffle reduction.
Town Hall Goes Full Mardi Gras
For Fat Tuesday, you’re thinking either a frisée salad or... unlimited mountains of buttermilk fried chicken and gumbo and ribs and king cake and caipirinhas and hurricanes. Probably the latter, but you’re still thinking about it.
