Things to do for August 31, 2016
We’ve Got Big Long-Weekend Plans for You
Hitchcock and Brunch in the City. A New Tasting Room and a Taco Party in Wine Country.By Lauren Sloss
The weekend will be wearing white straight through next Labor Day.
A Most Excellent New Tasting Room in Yountville
As you’re already planning on going to Napa this weekend, you’ll be pleased to hear that Stewart Cellars’ new Yountville grand tasting hall is now open. So are their reservations-only, bohemian, bookstore-like Heritage Library and in-house café. Should keep you busy for, say, three or so days.
Hey, It’s a Hitchcock-athon at the Balboa
Us: There’s nothing better than settling in for a marathon of Hitchcock’s finest, like
To Catch a Thief, Vertigo and Rear Window.
You: Except maybe doing that in front of a big screen at a classic San Francisco movie theater like the Balboa.
Us: You’re right, that’s better.
And Here We Have Your Long-Weekend Brunch Plans
Fiorella, that winner of a pizza-and-pasta spot in the Richmond, now serves brunch. They’ve got crostini topped with farmer cheese and avocado, smoked deviled eggs and a pork saltimbocca, which is pork wrapped in prosciutto. And pizza. And pasta. And this ends now.
An All-Vinyl Throwback Dance Party on Treasure Island
You like: vinyl, ’90s music and all-day dance parties at semisecret locations. You’ll get: all of those things on Treasure Island this Saturday afternoon. The party’s courtesy of Beatdown Sundaze, and they’ll announce the location day-of. Great. Nothing left to do but dance, then.
Of Course There’s a Taco Party in Wine Country
Considering it’s Labor Day weekend, it’s pretty much required that you go to a wine-adjacent party with some tacos and a DJ. Good thing the Meritage in Napa’s having one this Sunday with a whole roasted pig, cochinita-pibil-style, a DJ and drinks. Just following the rules here.
