Things to do for September 07, 2016

A Weekend of Pure Imagination

You’ve Now Got Plans Involving Willy Wonka and a New Beer Bar

By Lauren Sloss

The weekend no longer has a headphone jack.

Wednesday
Flannels and Ice Cream Await You at Topo
TOPO THE POPS

Flannels and Ice Cream Await You at Topo

How to recover from all the work you’ve been doing since Tuesday morning: drop by Topo Designs, where you can scope new arrivals and sale stuff (think beanies and flannels) while enjoying some gratis ice cream. Or do your shopping online, but then there’s no ice cream.

Sep 7, 4-6pm, Topo Designs, 645 Divisadero St (near Grove), 415-525-3749, and ongoing online

Thursday
An LCD Soundsystem–Inspired Dance Party Sounds About Right
SOUNDSYSTEM CLOUD

An LCD Soundsystem–Inspired Dance Party Sounds About Right

You may like LCD Soundsystem. You may even like dancing to music by them, and bands like them. So you may really like the idea of Dance Yourself Clean, a dance party happening at the Rickshaw Stop on Thursday. You do like dancing, right?

Sep 8, 9pm-2am, $10-$12 at door, Rickshaw Stop, 155 Fell St (between Franklin and Van Ness), 415-861-2011

About That New Beer Bar in Bernal
GOING FOR THE OLD

About That New Beer Bar in Bernal

Nothing says “Hey, September” quite like a new beer bar. Take Old Devil Moon, now open in Bernal. They have three cicerones behind the bar and a lush New Orleans vibe. This includes po’boys. Sure, po’boys can be lush.

Two New Brunches for Your Consideration
THANKS A BRUNCH

Two New Brunches for Your Consideration

ATwater Tavern: Outdoor seating, bayfront location and a brunch menu that includes bread pudding french toast, chilaquiles and tomatillo Bloody Marys. Nice.
Barzotto: Maple porchetta, eggs in spicy tomato sauce and orange-grapefruit mimosas. Very nice.

This has been Two New Brunches for Your Consideration.

WILDER THINGS

In Celebration of Gene Wilder: Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

Seems wise to celebrate the great Gene Wilder with a screening of one of his most beloved films, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. Simply look around and view it. You’ll see candy, bubbles and the actors who played Veruca Salt and Mike Teevee.

Lauren Sloss requires a climate that allows her to wear motorcycle boots daily. She likes her bourbon neat and her martinis dirty, and would like to be the lead singer of a punk rock band when she grows up.
