Things to do for May 29, 2014

The Weekender

A Secret Burger for Your Weekend

The weekend has new respect for Carly Rae Jepsen’s pitching abilities.

Thursday
4505’s Secret Off-Menu Burger
MAC ATTACK

4505’s Secret Off-Menu Burger

Been a long, great night, and now you’re at the 4505 Burgers & BBQ window, ordering the off-menu Big Mac. It’s a double cheeseburger with a huge wedge of Frankaroni—yep, fried mac and cheese with hot dogs—in the middle. Now it’s a longer, greater night.

Friday
A Movie in the Mendocino Vineyards
GRAPE EXPECTATIONS

A Movie in the Mendocino Vineyards

Oh, sure, that old story. You get a room at the Madrones, you go to a beautiful vineyard, you taste a bunch of wine... and you watch movies about wine. Early buzz on Cinema in the Vineyards is that all these things sound like a pretty good idea.

You Can Do Schroeder’s for Lunch Now

What’s horrible is when you’re sitting around all mopey at lunch, wishing you didn’t have to wait until dinner for some spaetzle, potato pancakes and wiener schnitzel at Schroeder’s. What’s more horrible is if you keep sitting around all mopey like that, because Schroeder’s serves lunch now.

Saturday
Coffee. Oysters. More Oysters.
NOW YOU’RE COOKING

Coffee. Oysters. More Oysters.

Some shoeboxes have shoes inside. Some have De la Paz coffee and scones in the morning, and beer and oysters later. See, what we did there is talk about this new place, the Cook and Her Farmer, as if it were a shoebox, because it’s very small.

Now soft-open, The Cook and Her Farmer at Swan’s Marketplace, 907F Washington St (between 9th and 10th), Oakland, 510-285-6140

Sunday
Here, Have a Venezuelan Brunch
AREPA WHAT YOU SOW

Here, Have a Venezuelan Brunch

Sunday brunch scenario one: eggs, coffee, toast. Sunday brunch scenario two: a Venezuelan swirl of sweet arepas and guanabana mimosas at the Palace. We don’t want to tell you what to do. But... we wouldn’t want you to be the person who went ahead and turned down Venezuelan brunch.

Sat-Sun, 10am-1:30pm, The Palace, 3047 Mission St (at Cesar Chavez), 415-666-5218, see the menu
