Things to do for May 08, 2014

The Weekender

Oyster, Bourbon-Spiked Coffee and Flowers

A weekend’s best friend is his mother.

Thursday
You Really Missed La Rondalla...
OCHO DE MAYO

You Really Missed La Rondalla...

It’s hard to remember the last time you had enchiladas and margaritas at La Rondalla. (2007. It closed in 2007.) Finally, it’s back, and it didn’t go changing into a gastronomic Mexiteque on you. But they did add in new stuff like carnitas. Okay, sure. Carnitas you’ll allow.

Now open, La Rondalla, 901 Valencia St (at 20th), 415-829-8444

The New Oyster Situation at Ichi
TO ICHI HIS OWN

The New Oyster Situation at Ichi

First, Ichi existed. Then it moved into its bigger, more beautiful digs. And only now, the crowning achievement: an hour every weekday involving $1 oysters, $6 wings and $4 Sapporos. That’s a good hour right there.

Friday
You Found Breakfast at Trou Normand
TROU DETECTIVE

You Found Breakfast at Trou Normand

Previously, if you went to Trou Normand at 8am, you could... stand around outside watching Yelpers going to work. Now you can go inside and have a frittata with kale, leeks and parmesan, or sausage gravy and poached egg on ciabatta, with some Four Barrel coffee. Much better.

Mon-Fri, 8-10:30am, Trou Normand, 140 New Montgomery St (at Howard), 415-975-0876

Blackbird’s Carbonated Drinks on Tap
DUDE, WHERE’S MY CARBONATION

Blackbird’s Carbonated Drinks on Tap

Summer’s coming. Kind of hard to believe. But apparently it’s a good time for carbonated cocktails on tap at Blackbird—think Pimm’s Cups, Palomas and bourbon-spiked New Orleans Coffees. Those make it easier to believe.

Available now, $8-$9, Blackbird, 2124 Market St (near Church), 415-503-0630

Sunday
A Totally-Not-Last-Minute Gift for Mom
FLOWER POWER

A Totally-Not-Last-Minute Gift for Mom

On the off chance you need a Mother’s Day gift that’s quick (but incredibly thoughtful, obviously) on Sunday, hit Unionmade’s sister shop. They’ve got the usual giftable jewelry and stuff—but also $25 Farmgirl flower arrangements at the ready. Just leave for brunch five minutes early and you’re good.

May 11, 11am-5pm, $25, Mill Mercantile, 3751 24th St (at Chattanooga), 415-401-8920
