Things to do for April 03, 2014
Cheese, Sarandon and 2am Fried Chicken
The weekend would never do that to you.
Ping-Pong and Sarandon in a Museum
Tonight at the California Academy of Sciences’ evening party, you’ll find cocktails. You’ll find an Oscar-winning short film. You’ll find ping-pong tables. You’ll find an ’80s ping-pong movie starring Susan Sarandon and Amy Sedaris. You know. Typical science-museum stuff.
It’s Lobster Night at Café des Amis
Thursday nights are now lobster nights at Café des Amis, and you know what that means—really good hot dogs. Either that or it means two pounds of grilled, pre-cracked Maine lobster served with sauce Louis, lobster-infused oil and garlic butter. Probably means the latter.
In Case of 2am Fried-Chicken Emergency
Disclaimer: this is totally implausible. Would never happen. Not in a million... Well, anyway, say you were out Friday night pretty late, drinking drinks and gesticulating emphatically to new friends. Then say you really wanted fried chicken a lot. San Francisco Fried Chicken Co. now exists. Just in case.
The One Hour You Must Visit Holy Water
Say the first 23 hours of your day were just okay—but nothing, like, transcendent. Come 11pm, you’ve got 60 minutes to make some memories at Holy Water—they’re now doing a nightly hour of... something. Maybe an herby/mezcal-y bartender’s choice. Maybe beer magnums. You never know. Unless you’re there.
About This Club: It’s a Cheese Club
Groucho Marx once said he wouldn’t want to join any club that would have him for a member. He must’ve forgotten about cheese clubs. Every month, if you want, you can get three surprise cheeses from Mission Cheese—it’s a pound and a half total. And... no velvet ropes.
