Let’s Talk Chocolate-Dipped Ice Cream Sandwiches

Now that the weather’s getting better... wait, it’s raining. Damn, okay. Well, to battle whatever the rain is doing to your psyche, head to Garden Creamery, the new brick-and-mortar version of the beloved truck. It’s got anything from Thai tea and banana salted caramel scoops to chocolate-dipped sandwiches. There, all better now.

Break in Case of Beach Day

Woods Beer Co.’s latest outpost (amid what seems to be an increasingly cool row of microbreweries) is now open in the Outer Sunset. Skip the Outerlands line and head over there to grab some empanadas and a freshly canned beer (to go) courtesy of their custom canning system. The world is neat.

Oh, the Hot Dogs You’ll Eat Here

Takuya soft-opens Saturday. They want to give you crazy Japanese hot dogs like the Francisco with shrimp tempura, spicy mayo, unagi sauce, wasabi sauce, furikake and black sesame. They also want you to design your own if that’s your thing. It is? Good, then that worked out.

Soft-opens Feb 11, Takuya, 716 Irving St (between 8th and 9th)

Frye’s Got This Pop-Up Thing. It’s Got Boots and Chocolate.
FRYE ANOTHER DAY

Frye’s Got This Pop-Up Thing. It’s Got Boots and Chocolate.

You need boots. Your soon-to-be valentine needs gratis chocolates provided by Lolli & Pops and probably also boots. So it stands to reason that you both need to get to Frye this weekend, where both of those things will be in abundance. Logic wins again.

Feb 11, noon-3pm, Frye, 2047 Fillmore St (at California), 415-346-3793

You’ll Need Reinforcements for This Brunch

Okane, little sister to Michelin-starred Omakase, is throwing their hat into the brunch ring. Head in for prix fixe options like gyuniku shigureni (sweet, stewed beef with ginger) or bring friends to share a large-format dish like their rice bowl with crab and lobster meat. Friends should be easy to find.

Sat-Sun starting Feb 11, 10am-2pm, Okane, 669 Townsend St (at 8th), 415-865-9788, see the menu

Joe Starkey is the tallest person in the room 90% of the time. He enjoys liquors that aren’t smoky, dive bars that are, and has a vague dread that someone, somewhere might be having more fun than him.
