The Weekender

So Many Tacos and Beers This Weekend

Turn that weekend upside down.

Oh, You Wanted a Papito West to Open?
GO WEST

Oh, You Wanted a Papito West to Open?

The great thing about a holiday weekend is there’s just more time to incorporate fried calamari, burritos and big plates of fajitas. And more time is good at the new Papito West, because unlike the original, this one’s got a raw bar. That’ll take at least a couple hours.

Now open, Papito West, 425 Hayes St (at Gough), 415-431-2440

A Place Where Fish Tacos Are Beautiful

Uno Dos Tacos had a plan. The plan was to open a pop-up, make you love their fish tacos, close the pop-up and open a big permanent downtown restaurant with beer, wine and hot-pink chairs. Good plan. Even the chairs. Why not.

Now open daily for lunch, 11:30am-3pm, dinner soon, Uno Dos Tacos, 595 Market St (at 2nd), 415-974-6922

Friday
What Once Was Plum Is Now Ume
THEORY OF EVOLUTION

What Once Was Plum Is Now Ume

Man, things happen quickly in matters of umeboshi-glazed pork ribs. Last Saturday night, Plum closed. But already it’s turned into Ume—and the chef from Outerlands thought that required casual small plates. Because really, what kind of sadist would make you wait for ribs.

Now open, Ume, 2214 Broadway (at Franklin), Oakland, 510-444-7586

Saturday
New Wine on an Idyllic Ranch. Come On.
BOOTS AND LADDERS

New Wine on an Idyllic Ranch. Come On.

Not all Petaluma day trips involve 80 acres of olive trees, 25 acres of vineyards and a release party for a 2013 Rosebud rosé that involves bocce, cheese and bluegrass. If this particular day trip to McEvoy Ranch sounds unappealing for some reason... it’s like we don’t know you anymore.

Hundreds of Beers in One Place
A GLOBAL BEER INCIDENT

Hundreds of Beers in One Place

It’s not a magic mug. Not exactly. But at the San Francisco International Beer Festival, $75 gets you a mug... which gets you pours of just millions of beers. Okay, hundreds of beers. But like too many beers than one mug should really ever be able to handle.
