The Weekender

Wine, Korean BBQ and Uber for Your Dog

Take some weekend and pass.

Thursday
A Custom-Engraved Bottle of Dom
PERK ALERT

A Custom-Engraved Bottle of Dom

You love your mother. But do you love her enough to get her a bottle of vintage Dom Pérignon champagne or rosé that you’ve had custom engraved with a special, heartfelt message of your choosing for Mother’s Day? There’s only one answer.

A Steven Alan Party for Your Bike
HOLDING OUT FOR A GIRO

A Steven Alan Party for Your Bike

Some truths: you like bicycling. You like drinks. You find acquiring bicycling gear more enjoyable when drinks are involved. You’re still with us, right? Well, Steven Alan is throwing a party with Giro, and the stuff we just talked about is stuff that will happen.

Apr 16, 6-9pm, Steven Alan, 445 Hayes St (near Gough), 415-558-8944

Friday
This Place Takes Wine Very Seriously
ONE ’FINO DAY

This Place Takes Wine Very Seriously

Stroll into this grand, lobby-esque space of a wine bar (and shop). Pluck a bottle from the wine wall. Maybe something local, or one from Italy or Spain. You could take it home, but... yeah, sit down. Have it corked. Think, “This place is really something.” Carry on with life.

Now open, Tofino Wines, 2696 Geary Blvd (near Masonic), 415-872-5782

These Movies Have a Very Specific Menu
TSO IT GOES

These Movies Have a Very Specific Menu

This three-day film festival is doing a film-and-food pairing thing, and it sounds pretty damn enticing. Ready yourself for East Side Sushi and spicy tuna rolls. Tampopo and ramen. The Search for General Tso and General Tso’s chicken. That one was kind of obvious.

Saturday
And Now, Dog-Walking on Demand
WAG AND BONE

And Now, Dog-Walking on Demand

You’re late for a morning meeting. You’re fumbling for your keys. Nearby: an extremely unamused canine. Enter: this new app that’s kind of like Uber for dog walkers. Schedule a walker, track the route in real time and get a full report afterward. No, seriously. It’s an incredibly detailed report.

Sunday
A Korean BBQ Pop-Up. Yes.
GREAT SONG

A Korean BBQ Pop-Up. Yes.

Hypothetical: there is such a thing as Korean BBQ season. (To believe this would necessitate the belief in an off-season.) Anyway, Hi Lo BBQ chef Robin Song is doing a three-Sunday pop-up at Hog & Rocks with slow-cooked pork belly wraps, spicy pork, pork-bone stew. You’re sensing a theme...
