The Weekender

Ribs, Shoes and 100 Bill Murray Masterpieces

Welcome to weekend lands.

ALOHA

Poke Bowls and Noodles at... Bloodhound

How to kill time if you’re a chef whose next restaurant isn’t open yet: take over a bar and make a bunch of Hawaiian-ish food (spicy noodles, yakitori, aloha dogs) for a few Thursdays. How to kill time if you’re you: go eat that food.

Friday
Lunch at Smokestack Is Real Now
STACK TO THE FUTURE

Lunch at Smokestack Is Real Now

Lunch in Dogpatch... the very thought conjures images of an empty road in some old ghost town, with a sad little tumbleweed rolling past. Oh, hey, Smokestack is happening starting at 11:30am now, and they’re not messing with the ribs-sausage-brisket formula. Because it’s a good formula.

Now open daily, 11:30am-midnight, Smokestack, 2505 3rd St (at 22nd), 415-864-7468

A Few Masterpieces About Bill Murray

If you could, you’d devote every night to honoring Bill Murray. But as a matter of convenience, maybe just hit tomorrow’s Bill Murray–themed art show in the Mission, with DJs, a bunch of like-minded people dressed up like the man himself... and maybe a couple Scarlett Johanssons?

Saturday
Good Shoes: 60% Off. Just So You Know.
FEET OF ENDURANCE

Good Shoes: 60% Off. Just So You Know.

Some people might’ve gone to the Gimme Shoes sale when it started. Ha. For the finale, everything that’s left—from the likes of Red Wing and Rag & Bone—is 60% off. As far as we know, there’s no twist ending.

One Year Ago, Mikkeller Was Born

Something special is happening at Mikkeller Bar SF on Saturday. There’s a new chipotle-pepper-spiked hot dog debuting—it’s called The Texas Ranger. Oh, also, it’s the bar’s first birthday. There’s a party happening with lots of rare beer. Not sure if the party’s for the birthday or the hot dog.
