A New Hayes Valley Bar With an Inside, Sure, but Also an Outside
IN AND OUT

A New Hayes Valley Bar With an Inside, Sure, but Also an Outside

Brass Tacks has taken over the former Flipper’s, and it shall henceforth be known as Anina. It shall also be known as the place you frequent for many a tropical vibe (and tropical cocktail) out on the patio. Which is outdoors. Which seemed necessary to reiterate.

Now open, Anina, 482 Hayes St (at Octavia)

Thanks in Advance for the Sample Sale, Goorin Bros.

San Francisco–based hattery Goorin Bros. is kicking off the spring season with a sample sale, where a great many fine specimens of head candy will be up to 50% off. This is the part where you kindly brush off the fact that we just said “head candy.”

Mar 16, 11am-6pm; Mar 17, 10am-6pm; Mar 18, 10am-5pm; Goorin Bros., 1269 Howard St (at 9th), 877-428-1895

Friday
It’s a St. Patrick’s Day/Pizza Miracle
STOUT’S HONOR

It’s a St. Patrick’s Day/Pizza Miracle

Guinness-infused pizza dough, housemade mozzarella, beer sausage (with more Guinness), caramelized onions, fontina, beer salt and Guinness reduction. That’s the St. Paddy’s Day–themed pizza you’re about to eat at Tony’s Pizza Napoletana. Just thought you deserved to know.

Saturday
A BYOB Caviar Tasting Room Sounds Fun
CAVIAR DREAMS

A BYOB Caviar Tasting Room Sounds Fun

If you’ve been wondering where you can taste caviar before procuring some for your next party: 1) head to the Caviar Company’s Cow Hollow outpost, where they’ll be offering consultations, tastes and private parties in their new BYOB tasting room, and 2) can we be invited to your next party?

Now open, tasting room at The Caviar Company, 1954 Union St (between Buchanan and Laguna), 415-580-7986

Sunday
Don’t Act Like You Didn’t See This Avocado Festival Coming
GUAC THIS WAY

Don’t Act Like You Didn’t See This Avocado Festival Coming

On Sunday, there’s an entire festival devoted to the green, good-fat addition that you have no problem paying extra for. Yes, it’s an avocado festival. Yes, it involves 16 food truck specials. And, yes, it’s called Avocado Con. It was that or... no, it could probably only be that.

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.
