MEAT YOUR MAKER

An Alameda Butcher Starts Butchering in Noe

Just in time for BBQ season, beloved Alameda butcher Baron’s has opened another shop in Noe Valley. They’ve got all the requisite outstanding cuts of meat, in addition to specialty products like Black Dragon tri-tip with maple syrup and garlic, plus a hoard of magic treasure. Presumably.

There’s a New Lunch Contender in the Dogpatch
TAP IN

There’s a New Lunch Contender in the Dogpatch

Taproot, casual sister restaurant to Stem Kitchen, is now soft-open in the Dogpatch. Pop in and grab a signature sandwich for lunch. Or be original and choose your own ingredients. Or go with the confit chicken wings with pomegranate sesame glaze. Oh, and it’s also a wine bar, so there’s another strong “or” opportunity.

Now soft-open, Taproot, 409 Illinois St (between 16th and 17th)

Friday
Just Make Sure These Things Are on Your Body Soon
STITCH SESSION

Just Make Sure These Things Are on Your Body Soon

Local handsomeness depot Taylor Stitch has just started the campaign for their Spring Maritime Collection. Browse around and preorder anything from their mercerized merino henley to that patio-friendly, navy-and-red, band-collared number dubbed “The Bandit.” You think you maybe see what they did there.

Saturday
More Pies. More Cookies. More Cakes. More Coffee.
JET WORTH

More Pies. More Cookies. More Cakes. More Coffee.

Black Jet Baking Co., already known for delicious baked goods like double-crust apple pies and s’mores cookies, suddenly has an actual storefront in Bernal Heights. Considering they were formerly pickup and delivery only, it’s a great new option if you’re in the neighborhood. And don’t hate hanging out in adorable bakeries with Ritual coffee.

Sunday
Your Next Date Requires a Flashlight
OVER THE MOON

Your Next Date Requires a Flashlight

On the off chance you’ve been meaning to get a little more creative with your dates than “Let’s go for drinks,” consider this moonlight stroll through the botanical garden. They’ll provide the Fort Point beers and the tour of the grounds, you’ll provide the flashlight. And the date. They don’t have those.

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.
