HEY, JOE

You’ll Probably Eat a Lot of Lunch Here

There’s a second, slightly larger location of Joe & The Juice in SoMa now. Note that this only matters if you enjoy sandwiches with tomato and pesto, and juices like the Hangover Heaven with apple, elderflower and mint. And other sandwiches. And juices. And lunch in general. Only then.

Valencia Gets Some Well-Deserved Ice Cream
SO IT WAS SMITTEN

Valencia Gets Some Well-Deserved Ice Cream

Smitten, the liquid-nitrogen ice cream shop that started out of a Radio Flyer wagon, opens another location tomorrow, this time on Valencia. It’ll be bigger than the others, with actual room to hang out, and expect collaborations with other Mission shops for exclusive flavors like Mission Cheese’s Chevre and Apricots. As you were.

Opens Mar 23, Smitten Ice Cream, 904 Valencia St (between 20th and 21st), 415-590-3144

This Sale Goes Up to 90% Off, So...
CARE FOR A SAMPLE?

This Sale Goes Up to 90% Off, So...

A bunch of local shops like Oak Common and Gather are coming together at Temescal Brewing for a giant sample sale. Which means you’ll be able to grab things like T-shirts and button-downs and denim from 50% to 90% off. And since it’s at a brewery, drink beer. Fair. This all seems pretty fair.

Mar 25, noon-4pm, no cover, Temescal Brewing, Oakland, 4115 Telegraph Ave (at 41st), 510-899-5628

You, Your Date and Over 100 Wines
BOTTLE BEHAVIOR

You, Your Date and Over 100 Wines

Back for its second spring wine tasting, Uncorked is happening on the top floor of the Metreon this weekend. It’s basically where you and a date put on something nice, walk around and taste whichever of the 100-plus wines you feel like tasting. We believe in you.

How to Skip the Lines at Presidio Picnic
GRID VICIOUS

How to Skip the Lines at Presidio Picnic

Now that spring is (kinda) here, so is Off the Grid’s Presidio Picnic. Oh, and this year you can skip the lines by preordering food online for your group. Even better, starting this Sunday, you can also order mimosa and Bloody Mary kits or buckets of beer for pickup. Can and will, to be precise.

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.
