Things to do for April 10, 2014
Greek Fries and a Disturbingly Pleasant Cabana
The weekend will always protect your credit card number.
A Greek Hall of Spit-Roasted Meats
When Sebo closed, their sushi gone forever, nothing could offer you solace. Nothing. Although spit-roasted lamb on a pita with a beer and some Greek fries—topped with olive oil, lemon, oregano and Greek cheese—might help. Hush. Come here. Let Souvla console you.
Lobster and a Cabana Sounds Pretty Good
“Oh, no big plans tonight. I could go down to the Presidio, get a roll from the Lobsta Truck, find a lantern-lit cabana, get a drink and watch the sun set over the Golden Gate Bridge. But I’ll probably stay home and clean my sink.” —hopefully not you
A Havana-Style Party at Goorin Bros.
You decide to try on a lightweight fedora. You step before the mirror and suddenly... you hear trumpets. Someone hands you a Cuba libre. People are dancing. You’re either at the Goorin Bros. party for their new Cuba collection, or in Cuba, or there’s something weird about your mirror.
A Hot Dog Like No Other
It’s a real chicken-and-egg question: did baseball inspire hot dogs or did hot dogs inspire baseball? While you ponder, try the baseball-inspired Haute Dog at Craftsman and Wolves—it’s baked into a mustard-seed croissant, and topped with mustard, salt and vinegar beet chips. It came after chicken, and eggs.
Sidewalk Brunching at Verbena, Finally
2323 Polk: site of a thousand fond brunch-related memories. But since Verbena took over the address, it’s been hard to know what to do at 11:30am on a Sunday. Now, finally, you can return to find poached eggs with braised-duck ragout and Bloodys. Brunch exists again. Missed you, brunch.
