Things to do for August 14, 2014
Brandy, Ribeye and the Beatles
The weekend is still debating the song of the summer.
When Hog & Rocks Is Not Hog & Rocks
If you’re finishing your drinks at Hog & Rocks tonight, it’ll still be a ham and oyster bar. At 10pm, though, it’ll suddenly turn into a late-night Korean spot, with bibimbap, kimchi stew and fish cakes on the menu until midnight. Wow. Powerful drink you had there.
Get a Bottle of Something Good Here
The guy behind the Royal Cuckoo bar has a good sense of everything you might need this weekend: Red Margaritas and vinyl. Pretty much covers it. Oh, also a bottle of amaro, wine, ice cream and Danish chocolates at his new market a few blocks away. Might need those things, too.
The Beatles Like You’ve Never Seen ’Em
Maybe you’ve heard of the Beatles. They’re the guys who are the subjects of 50 pretty incredible never-before-seen photos at the SF Art Exchange’s new show. You know, the Beatles.
Tailgating with Michael Mina
Michael Mina is not just a chef—he’s a 22-year Niners season ticket holder. And his new place at Levi’s Stadium, Bourbon Steak & Pub, isn’t just a place to get an 18-ounce ribeye and a beer—on game day, it’s a members-only tailgate party spot. Yeah. Members-only tailgating exists now.
And Lo, There Was Brandyfest
Beerfest: been done. Brandyfest: now that’s really something. Bar Agricole is turning four, and they’re doing it with two all-you-can-eat oyster/sausage/other-snack parties, with plenty of small-batch brandy tastings throughout. No offense to Beerfests.
