Your Latest SoMa Beer Destination Has Arrived

The people behind Garaje have just opened a new weekday beer bar. You should slide into one of their dark leather booths one day after work and order one of 18 brews they have on rotating taps. Oh, and it’s called G Spot. We’ll leave that right there for you.

Now soft-open, G Spot, 251 3rd St (near Howard), 415-872-9020

So Many Restaurants and Lion Dancers Under One Roof

A 30,000-square-foot, multistory, multi-restaurant extravaganza is opening in the heart of Chinatown tomorrow. And to celebrate, they’re throwing a grand-opening party featuring many drinkable things, many edible things and a few lion dancers. Nobody wants a lion-dancer-less party.

On New Tacos and Where to Eat Them

A Manresa and Kin Khao vet just made you a new taco joint. It’s pretty lunch-friendly. There are tacos, yes, but there are also ceviche tostadas with avocado and Gulf prawns. There are no margaritas, but there will be when they get their liquor license soon. Breathe in. Breathe out. Be strong.

This Oscar Party Is Unlike Other Oscar Parties
OSCAR WILD

This Oscar Party Is Unlike Other Oscar Parties

It’s almost time for you to dress up like your favorite late film star and head to Finn Town for their Oscar party. There’ll be an open bar, passed apps and a “Dead Movie Star” costume contest. Mufasa totally counts.

We Implore You Not to Forget About Mardi Gras

This year, you celebrate Mardi Gras by heading to a fete at newly revamped San Francisco mainstay Elite Cafe, where you’ll be greeted by a live jazz band, a gratis Hurricane and an unlimited crawfish boil. Unless you’re going to Mardi Gras, in which case you can just celebrate that way.

Feb 28, 6-9:30pm, $40, Elite Cafe, 2049 Fillmore St (at California), 415-346-8400, tickets here (use code URBANDADDYMARDIGRAS if sold out)

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.
