Things to do for April 03, 2014

The Weekender

Cheese, Sarandon and 2am Fried Chicken

The weekend would never do that to you.

Thursday
Ping-Pong and Sarandon in a Museum
SORRY, PONG NUMBER

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
CLAW AND ORDER

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.

Thursdays, $28, Café des Amis, 2000 Union St (at Buchanan), 415-563-7700

Friday
In Case of 2am Fried-Chicken Emergency
FREAKY FRIED DAY

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.

Now open (until 2am Thu-Sat), San Francisco Fried Chicken Co., 362 Columbus Ave (between Broadway and Vallejo), 415-989-5443

Saturday
The One Hour You Must Visit Holy Water
MAGIC HOUR

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.

Nightly, 11pm-midnight, Holy Water, 309 Cortland Ave (at Boucana)

Tuesday
About This Club: It’s a Cheese Club
LIVIN’ ON THE WEDGE

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.
