Things to do for March 23, 2016
Two Glorious Brunches and One Dazed and Confused Screening
The weekend just dusted off its seersucker.
Dazed and Confused. Maybe you’ve seen it. Maybe you’ve seen it on the big screen along with Anchor Brewing beer pairings, pizza and Humphry Slocombe ice cream at a party thrown by the good people at San Franpsycho. Probably not, though.
The Yard Is Opening Again, and You’re Going to Drink Beer There
The Yard at Mission Rock was definitely a highlight of last year’s Giants season, what with it being a beer garden and all. And good news: they’re reopening on Friday with some new things like meat from Belcampo Meat, a soccer field and a Giants-themed beer. Beer still being a major component here.
You’re Getting Early Access to Itani Ramen
On your list of restaurants that are opening soon that you’re really excited about: Itani Ramen. What you’re doing this weekend: going to the Itani Ramen pop-up in Oakland to sample noodles and gyoza and other things before they open. Glad we could settle that.
Here, Have a New Neighborhood Bike Shop
Perhaps your bike is due for a tune-up. Perhaps you don’t have a bike. Either way, consider heading over to Spoke Easy, a new neighborhood bike shop in the Richmond. They’re having a grand-opening thing on Saturday with drinks and stuff. Which makes “and stuff” sort of anticlimactic.
So Many Bloodys. So Many Bagels. So Much Brunch.
Sunday. You’ll want a Bloody. Probably a bagel. So hit Diane’s Bloody Mary Brunch at Mina Test Kitchen for seven kinds of Bloodys and bagels topped with latkes and pastrami. Or to Stag Dining’s Easter brunch with Wise Sons, complete with a DIY Bloody bar, bagels and smoked fish platters. Keep being you, Easter.
