The Weekender

A Secret Brunch Club and a Great Parking Spot

The weekend can’t promise to keep its pants on at Bay to Breakers.

Thursday
Because Parking Is Brutal Around Here
CURB APPEAL

Because Parking Is Brutal Around Here

When you finally find a street-parking spot in this town, it’s a moment of unparalleled triumph. Naturally, what you should do when you’re ready to leave it is... download an app called MonkeyParking that’ll let you auction it off to the highest nearby bidder. Naturally.

Saturday
Now That’s an Impressive Motorcycle
WHOLE HOG

Now That’s an Impressive Motorcycle

You may not know it, but 1925 was an excellent year for motorcycles. Hit the Quail Motorcycle Gathering this weekend and you’ll see the 1925 Brough Superior SS100, which hasn’t been on public display in more than 50 years. You’ll also see other motorcycles.

Sunday
It’s a Cabernet Cook-Off at Hall
HALL OR NOTHING

It’s a Cabernet Cook-Off at Hall

Usually, you pick out a wine to go with your food. Sunday at Hall Wines, you pick out which food goes with your wine—a bunch of chefs from great restaurants like Oenotri, Press and One Market will all compete to feed you the best cabernet-pairing food. Everyone wins.

Wednesday
Obviously a Cocktail Is a Work of Art
CRITICS ARE CALLING IT A MASTERPIECE

Obviously a Cocktail Is a Work of Art

The challenge: bartenders using farmers’ market stuff to create great drinks inspired by SFMOMA-worthy artists. The other challenge: you sampling their attempts at a big, beautiful cocktail-art party. Or art-cocktail party. Or something.

This Private Brunch Club Is Real

Some people think brunch should be spelled with a “V.” Some people think there should be a private club called Brvnch, where members get crepes, sure, but also trapeze artists, go-go dancers and DJs—at secret locations around town—after a kickoff blowout open to the public. Thinking is weird, isn’t it?

Accepting applications now, first brunch Jun 29, $300, Brvnch, location disclosed upon purchase, tickets here
