It’s Really Quite a Giant Book Sale
WORD UP

It’s Really Quite a Giant Book Sale

Chronicle Books is always a good place to acquire reading material. But on Friday, everything there will be 65% off, so it will be an even better place to acquire reading material. Glad we sorted this out.

Luckyrice Is Here. Then It’s Gone.
LUCKY STRIKE

Luckyrice Is Here. Then It’s Gone.

Here’s the plan: you’ll stride into this Luckyrice pop-up feast. Grab a gin-and-yellow-pepper-puree cocktail and a plate of sashimi. Exchange hellos with a chef or two. Fill a plate with spicy pork belly. Grab another drink. Leave, eventually. You’ll have to leave eventually.

Saturday
Mikkeller’s Turning Two. So... Beer.
MIKK OF TIME

Mikkeller’s Turning Two. So... Beer.

It’s Mikkeller’s second birthday, and they’re celebrating by offering you a ton of rare beers. There’s no ticket situation. Just show up and start drinking beers. It seems almost wrong. It’s not wrong.

Aug 8, noon, Mikkeller Bar, 34 Mason St (at Turk), 415-984-0279

Tuesday
Michael Mina’s About to Barbecue Stuff
CUE DETECTIVE

Michael Mina’s About to Barbecue Stuff

The reason: Bourbon Steak’s first anniversary.
The party: A bottomless-BBQ situation from Michael Mina and Chris Curtiss in the tailgate area of Levi’s Stadium.
The huge rotisserie spinning 1,000 pounds of ribs, pork and brisket: Will exist.
