If we told you we predict that you’re not going to open a single bottle of wine this summer, you’d call us... something unsavory. Probably “dum-dum.” If we told you that’s because Perks has a highly advanced device that lets you pour wine without pulling the cork, you’d... probably nod in agreement and then apologize for before.
Things to do for May 25, 2016
A Pool Party with DJ Jazzy Jeff, an Island-Style Pig Roast and Two New Cafés
Weekendtime and the living’s easy.
Two New Cafés for Your Café-ing Pleasure
Today on Two New Cafés:
Le Chat Rouge: A North Beach spot with real French pastries made by a real French person.
Orson’s Belly: A Richmond haven for film buffs with all-day service, bagel sandwiches and movie nights to come.
This will be the last installment of Two New Cafés.
Your Favorite FiDi Cocktail Bar Does Lunch
Here’s where we tell you that the Treasury, your FiDi go-to for good drinks and good bar food, is now serving lunch. It involves things like pork banh mi and a few of their better drinks like the Smoke & Mirrors with gin and smoked tea. Though we probably had you at gin.
A Basement Full of Very Good Beer
A beer store opening a beer bar. Huh. That might work. Well, guess what: Ales Unlimited just opened a beer bar. It’s called Beer Basement. It’s in a basement and it’s filled with beer. Plus, comedy nights are in the works. No one ever sees the comedy nights coming.
DJ Jazzy Jeff Is Throwing a Pool Party. This Is Not a Drill.
There are summer kickoff parties, and then there are summer kickoff parties that happen by the Phoenix’s well-appointed pool with food and drinks and DJ Jazzy Jeff. The latter probably being the better type of kickoff party.
An Island-Style Pig Roast This Way Comes
Forbidden Island is easily one of the best tiki bars in the Bay, and definitely the best reason to go to Alameda. Especially when they’re throwing a Sunday pig roast with live music, drink specials and a whole roasted pig. Congratulations on being a person who’s about to go to that.
