Once upon a time there was a Perk for 50% off lightweight cotton summer ties from Knot Society that were perfect to wear for anything from a business meeting to a June wedding. You bought a bunch. Lived handsomely ever after. The end. (Told you it was a short story.)
Things to do for June 01, 2016
A Fleetwood Mac Dance Party, a Souvla Sequel and a Full Week of Negronis
The weekend makes loving fun.
Souvla: The Sequel
Souvla, as you know, is a gyro place. Probably your favorite gyro place. So please enjoy this news about the fact that they’re opening a second location on Divisadero. And yes, you can still get lamb wraps and meat-topped salads and baklava-topped frozen Greek yogurt there. Please. Enjoy that.
The Fleetwood Mac Dance Party You’ve Been Longing For
Fleetmac Wood is coming to Public Works on Friday night. They’re a traveling dance party, and all they ask is that you maybe wear white and definitely love Fleetwood Mac. As far as requests go, those are pretty fair ones.
A Very Dad-Forward BBQ at Filson
Father’s Day made easy, by Filson. Step one: show up at Filson on Saturday afternoon. Step two: eat barbecue, drink drinks. Step three: procure something great for your dad. Maybe something extra for yourself. Step four: we may not have ended up needing this step.
Dumplings and Bubbly. Bubbly and Dumplings.
Crystal Jade, that excellently fancy dim sum joint in the Embarcadero Center, has a new weekend brunch situation with family-style, non-dim-sum-size platters of things like soup dumplings and pork ribs. Plus champagne specials, because they’re not barbarians.
You’re Going to Drink a Lot of Negronis Next Week
Negroni Week starts on Monday. Negroni Week involves Negroni-rich screenings of La Dolce Vita at Alamo Drafthouse, tropical Negronis at Holy Mountain and a late-night, Negroni-paired tasting at Lazy Bear. So, Negronis.
