Things to do for April 30, 2015
Fight Night, Oysters and Sangrita on the Roof
The weekend’s got money on Dortmund.
A Burger Happy Hour at Fog City
The burger at Fog City is good—that sweet bun, that smoked-tomato aioli. The burger at Fog City’s bar, after 9pm, is the same burger, for $9 (instead of almost $18). Just tastes a little better for some reason.
Sample Sale-ing in a Brewery
Things to do in breweries: 1) Drink a beer. 2) Watch people making the beer. 3) Hit a two-day sample sale with stuff from Taylor Stitch, Joshu+Vela, Revolver and Maas & Stacks. It’s just the third thing at Black Sands Brewery, which is expected to open this summer. Until then: sale.
Derby Day at Hog & Rocks and Comstock
The sustenance: Comstock Saloon’s got Derby-themed sandwiches, bourbon pudding, bacon Hot
Browns. Over at Hog & Rocks: oysters. Lots of oysters.
The merriment: Comstock is doing Derby and Southside cocktails. At Hog & Rocks: a best-dressed contest and gambling.
The... Derby: They’re both screening it.
Fight Night’s at Stock in Trade
Getting to a bar to watch the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight makes sense. Getting to a massive bar with an indoor court for a friendly bocce competition makes a little more sense. Or maybe it doesn’t. Still sounds fun, though.
Sangrita on the Rooftop of El Techo
Tuesday, taking shots on El Techo’s rooftop seems almost classy—the Amiga de Oaxaca is a shot of mezcal with a back of green-tea sangrita and a Modelo Especial. (That’s one of five combo options available.) Works if you’re doing a Cinco de Mayo thing, or a Tuesday thing.
