Things to do for October 21, 2015
Sake, a Giant Ski Sale and a New Delarosa
Remember to wait 30 minutes before jumping in the weekend.
Come Here, Drink Juice, Feel Right
Have you heard about this magical new shop in Hayes Valley called Project Juice? Word is, you go in, order one of their superfood smoothies or coconut parfaits or hot wellness elixirs, then consume it and leave feeling inexplicably healthier. Pretty nuts.
A New Delarosa Is Born
Big news: Delarosa has a sister. She has the same name, but she lives where Union Square and SoMa meet. And like her Marina counterpart, she also has Roman-style shared plates like spicy marinara meatballs and burrata bruschetta, and plenty of beer. Their parents must be so proud.
It’s Simple Ice Cream Truck Economics
Not a lot of upward mobility for ice cream trucks these days. And yet, here’s Twirl and Dip, opening up a new brick-and-mortar operation in Potrero Hill from which to serve their organic soft-serve and small-batch soda floats. This is totally going in someone’s stump speech.
It’s a Ski Sale. At a Bar.
Here’s how to prep for ski season: 1) Head to MatrixFillmore on Saturday afternoon. 2) Drink some drinks. 3) When you’re ready, get up to 60% off skiwear and après-ski gear from some rather nice brands. 4) Maybe just sit for a while.
Your Sundays Are Now This Much Better
Mondays through Saturdays: You won’t have access to Pabu’s all-night happy hour menu with specials on sake and things like Tokyo fried chicken and their Berkshire pork “country” ribs. Sundays: You can get all of that. Plus, there’s football. So Sundays are better than those other days.
