Things to do for September 25, 2014
A Weekend of Popcorn and Oyster Innovation
Pretty crazy how Larry Ellison just bought the entire weekend. Wow.
Goorin Bros. Would Like to Adorn You
Not that you’re having a bad hair day. Looks great. But Goorin Bros. is having a big sample sale at HQ right now, so you could grab a $10 to $20 fedora and/or a ball cap to have on standby. Just in case. Pretty humid out.
The Oyster Situation at Ferry Plaza
It was getting kind of ridiculous. No leisurely dollar-oyster afternoons at Ferry Plaza Seafood, somehow. Hard to think about anything else. Well, now the world is as it should be. Dollar oysters by the dozen, and $5 beers, every weekday. Finally. Now you can focus on what’s important. (Dollar oysters.)
An Evening of Dinner and Glassblowing
Last time you had a great dinner date, there was one thing missing: a little glassblowing. That’s not a metaphor or anything—TheLab is doing dinner parties with a little something extra each time. Like, this time there’ll be glassblowing happening near your seared ahi. But not too near.
The North Beach Popcorn Awakening
Theoretically, there’s nothing wrong with popcorn-flavored popcorn. Until you start pondering cone-shaped bags of caramel popcorn, truffle-parmesan popcorn, Jamaican-mojo popcorn... and you will ponder those things at the new Cornology in North Beach. And also maybe the meaning of life.
It’s Called the Figs & Pigs Festival
Good things happen under 135-year-old fig trees. Exhibit A: the one at Quivira, where Saturday there’ll be grape stomping, barrel-making demos, a pig roast, a fig buffet, lots of wine... all that kind of stuff. Fig trees, people. Fig trees.
