There’s No World in Which You Don’t Need a Shiny New Coffee Spot

Santa Cruz–based Verve Coffee Roasters has just opened their first San Francisco café on Market. Stop by before work and grab some “seed-to-cup” coffee and a prosciutto biscuit from Los Gatos’s Manresa Bread. You knew you weren’t getting out of this without a “seed-to-cup” reference.

BOWL POSITION

What Lunch Hath the Twitter Building Wrought

Chicken adobo bowls with freshly pressed garlic. Beef pares bowls with braised brisket. Build-your-own bowls. Basically: bowls. You’re in for a lot of those at this casual new lunchery in the Twitter building. Though if you just wanted one, we’d allow it.

It’s a Pretty Damn Good Sale, Is All

Coinciding with the launch of their spring line, Welcome Stranger is treating you to a huge sale on things like Norse Projects button-downs, Saturdays NYC hoodies and the occasional boardshorts and T-shirt for good measure and/or a forthcoming beach day that may or may not ever happen.

A Pig Roast and Some Beer. Good Thinking.

A Pig Roast and Some Beer. Good Thinking.

When one of the best BBQ spots in the city tells you that they’re having a whole-hog luau celebration with Fort Point brewery for beer week, you drop everything and go. Is it awkward that you’re still reading this?

You and a Date Should Drink Drinks Here

The people who brought you Dirty Water have now brought you a nice little cocktail bar called Rusted Mule. It’s a much-needed date option on Polk with original 1908 brick walls, sculptures from local artists and a glowing bar. It’s that last part that makes it a bar.

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.
