Things to do for July 09, 2015
French People, Sake and Many Fine Cheeses
Joie de weekend.
Remember last year’s live-drawing event from the Southern Exposure people? Where you watched 120 artists sketch things, drank Belgian beers and ate some tamales? Well, it’s happening again. Tomorrow. Still looks like a good time.
Here’s the Beach-y Pop-Up You Requested
The team at Alite Designs is throwing this beach-themed pop-up in the Sunset District, with brands like Sunski, Oru Kayak and Scrapdog Skateboards. Great news if you need a new beach bag or California-made lawn chair. Or like drinking drinks on the beach. That, too.
Here’s to Two Years of Roka Akor
Birthday shenanigans at Roka Bar include: $2 drafts, sake specials and DJs spinning from 9pm until the sun comes up. Or until they close. Got a little carried away there.
A Splendid Afternoon of Beer and Cheese
Warning: Triple Voodoo brewery has teamed up with La Fromagerie, and this Sunday they’ll be plying you with beer-and-cheese pairings. Like Samurai Saison with goat’s milk cheese, chocolate porters with cave-aged gruyère and other things probably not aged in caves. Proceed with caution.
Couple Bastille Day Options for You
If you’re up for a little friendly competition: Head to RN74 for a pétanque tournament,
live music and a silent auction. Crepes and canapés will also be involved.
If you’re craving celebratory duck confit: Chef Hubert Keller’s doing a five-course French pop-up at Gaspar Brasserie. Then DJing the after-party. So... busy guy.
