Things to do for December 16, 2015

The Weekender

Giving the Gift of Pot. Receiving New Brunch.

The weekend finds your lack of faith disturbing.

Wednesday
Thursday
You Will Dine, and You Will Do It Here
SMALL VICTORY

You Will Dine, and You Will Do It Here

Here’s a place called Little Gem that opens tomorrow in Hayes Valley. There’s a person in the kitchen who spent some time in one of Thomas Keller’s kitchens. You’ll eat flat iron steaks and Tuscan pork shoulder there. Everything’s healthy. You may continue having a Wednesday now.

Friday
Hey, We’re Getting a Shinola
PALO ALTO ROCK CITY

Hey, We’re Getting a Shinola

Detroit: Home of Shinola, purveyors of anything from bikes to leather goods to Muhammad Ali–inspired watches.
Palo Alto: Home of the first NorCal location of Shinola, stocked with anything from bikes to leather goods to Muhammad Ali–inspired watches.

In case you were wondering what Detroit and Palo Alto had in common.

Now open, Shinola, 261 Hamilton Ave, Palo Alto, 650-300-5350

Saturday
Giving the Gift of... Well, Pot
WHAT’S IN THE BOX

Giving the Gift of... Well, Pot

You remember Potbox. You know, that pot-of-the-month club for medical marijuana card holders, complete with tasting notes. Well, they’ve got gift cards now. And that’s probably enough words about that.

Sunday
The Part About a Really Good Brunch
TO THE NINE

The Part About a Really Good Brunch

Ninebark, that kind-of-a-big-deal place in downtown Napa with that chef from Atera and all of those things you like to eat, is now serving brunch. They’ve got tartines topped with smoked avocado and eggs, fried-oyster po’boys, brunch cocktails and... there you went.

Crab. Crab Everywhere. Sangria, Too.
CRAB AND GO

Crab. Crab Everywhere. Sangria, Too.

SoMa StrEat Food Park most days: That place with the food trucks where you can hang out, drink beer and eat stuff. SoMa StrEat Food Park this Sunday: All of that, but with bottomless Dungeness crab, garlic noodles, beer and sangria.

We’re going to call this a positive development.
