Things to do for May 11, 2016

The Weekender

Presidio Twilight Is Back. Laszlo Is Back. The Weekend Is Back.

Just like riding a weekend.

Wednesday
Shoes. Guitars. Beer. Tonight.
MADE RUNNER

Shoes. Guitars. Beer. Tonight.

Us: Hey, there’s a party at Anchor Brewing tonight.
You: Great, I’m in.
Us: It’s being thrown by SFMade and there will be all kinds of locally made things like shoes and guitars and snacks. Plus beer, of course.
You: Yeah... still in.

Thursday
Presidio Twilight Is Back. It Brought Fire Pits and Cabanas.
TWILIGHT ZONE

Presidio Twilight Is Back. It Brought Fire Pits and Cabanas.

Off the Grid at the Presidio: always a good time. Particularly during Thursday evening Twilight Presidio events, which start this week and involve things like new barbecue and dumpling trucks, plus first-come, first-served fire pits and cabanas. So maybe go first.

Look What Laszlo Just Did to Itself
’SZLO AND STEADY

Look What Laszlo Just Did to Itself

Laszlo, that not-un-great bar next to Foreign Cinema, is about to reopen tomorrow after a significant refresh involving a movie-inspired drink list, a new DJ setup and lineup, and bar food up to and including Foreign Cinema’s madras fried chicken in sandwich form. Teamwork, people.

Reopens May 12, Laszlo, 2526 Mission St (near 21st), 415-401-0801

Saturday
The Dumpling Mother Ship Has Landed
BAO DOWN

The Dumpling Mother Ship Has Landed

Din Tai Fung, arguably the single greatest soup dumpling spot in all the land, has finally opened a location in the Bay Area. 1) It’s in Santa Clara. 2) It will be crowded. 3) It will have dumplings filled with molten soup broth and sometimes black truffles. 4) You’re gone now, aren’t you?

Now open, Din Tai Fung, 2855 Stevens Creek Blvd (at the Valley Fair mall), Santa Clara, 408-248-1688

Sunday
And Now You’ve Come to the New-Brunch Part
KETTLE DETECTOR

And Now You’ve Come to the New-Brunch Part

There are two days in the weekend. Monk’s Kettle has a new brunch that happens on both of those days. It has things like breakfast sandwiches on pretzel buns, corned beef and potato hash, and Spanish tortillas with potatoes and scallions. We trust you’ll do the right thing with this information.
