The Weekender

Marrow, Pastry and Cage-Fighting Drones

In like a lion, out like a weekend.

Thursday
Marlowe’s Off-Menu Bone Marrow Luge
MARROW MARGIN

Marlowe’s Off-Menu Bone Marrow Luge

Step one: Order the smoked-bone-marrow dish.
Step two: Eat the smoked-bone-marrow dish.
Step three: Order a shot of the Amaro Averna, which they’ll pour down the bone, so the amaro gets some extra smokiness on its journey.
Step four: Order another smoked-marrow-bone di—no, one was plenty.

Available now, $25, Marlowe, 500 Brannan St (at 4th), 415-777-1413

These Drones Seem to Be Cage Fighting
GAMES NON-PEOPLE PLAY

These Drones Seem to Be Cage Fighting

So many robots at the Academy of Sciences tonight. It’s probably the only place you could catch a cage-fighting drone battle (that’d be “Game of Drones”), an R2-D2 replica and a roving robot named Beam. But you never know. There might be other places.

Friday
How Shirts and Drinks Happen at Azalea
ORIGINAL ’CASTE

How Shirts and Drinks Happen at Azalea

There’s an open-bar situation at Azalea on Friday. Reason being, the people behind the SoCal surfy clothing line called OurCaste are road tripping to the store with some spring stuff for you. Not that a reason was required.

Saturday
What You Should Know About the Chounut
THE CHOUX THING

What You Should Know About the Chounut

Quick refresher. That Choux Bakery place does French cream puffs. Also, cronuts were a thing that happened that one time. Ergo, Choux Bakery was fated to create the Chounut—it’s a glazed choux pastry that’s shaped like a donut and filled with French custard. They didn’t really have a choice.

Available Sat-Sun only at Choux Bakery, 248 Fillmore St (at Haight), 415-757-0722

Sunday
A Chess Match at a Russian Bathhouse
CHECKMATING RITUAL

A Chess Match at a Russian Bathhouse

Yeah. A chess tournament at a Russian bathhouse. Seems strange and feels right, all at once. Anyway, 30 grand masters will be in the city on Sunday, so Archimedes Banya figured it would be a good time for an open tournament—players get a day pass. Post-chess steam sessions. Sure.
