Things to do for May 04, 2016

The Weekender

New Lunch. New Ramen. New Brunch. New You.

Mama, the weekend’s coming home.

Wednesday
New Lunch in FiDi. New Dinner in Oakland.
MEALER’S CHOICE

New Lunch in FiDi. New Dinner in Oakland.

When you fancy a duck egg sandwich and some lasagna: Here’s Homage (pictured), a new breakfast and lunch spot in FiDi that has those very things.
When you fancy ramen: Here’s Itani Ramen, the long-awaited noodle spot from the Hopscotch chef right near the Fox.
When you fancy us to stop saying “fancy”: Fine.

Thursday
Never Have a Burgerless Lunch Again
X MARKS THE TOT

Never Have a Burgerless Lunch Again

The good news: WesBurger, your new favorite place to get their namesake comestible, is now open for lunch. Yes, they’re still serving burgers, and yes, they want to give you gratis tater tots when you eat lunch there on weekdays. The bad news: carry on. Nothing to see here.

Daily (gratis tater tots Mon-Fri only), 11:30am-4:30pm, WesBurger ‘N’ More, 2240 Mission St (between 18th and 19th), 415-745-9371

GREEN MEANS TACO

Wherein Chefs Compete for Your Taco Approval

Cinco de Mayo can be a time to head to the Clift hotel to watch five chefs (including ones from Matador and Hog & Rocks) make tacos in a who-can-make-the-best-tacos competition, and then taste said tacos. Or Cinco can be a time to do something way more horrible than that.

May 5, 5:30-8:30pm, no cover (receive five taco tickets with purchase of one cocktail), Living Room at Clift San Francisco, 495 Geary St (at Taylor), 415-775-4700

Saturday
Hog & Rocks Is Having a Derby Party. You’re Going.
GIDDY UP

Hog & Rocks Is Having a Derby Party. You’re Going.

Derby Day. A time to don seersucker. A time to drink bourbon out of copper mugs. A time to head to Hog & Rocks, where you can do both of those things while eating pimento cheese and participating in a “shuck and suck” oyster-eating competition. Or just eat oysters.

Sunday
Here, Have a Very Timely New Brunch
MOM’S THE WORD

Here, Have a Very Timely New Brunch

We’d like to gently remind you that Sunday is Mother’s Day. And that instead of panicking about the lack of suitable brunch reservations, you can instead take her to the new weekend option at Aster, which involves things like duck confit hash and a porchetta breakfast sandwich. And sweet mom-related salvation.

Sat-Sun, 10:30am-2pm, Aster, 1001 Guerrero St (at 22nd), 415-875-9810, see the menu
