Things to do for April 12, 2017
Ham, Biscuits and an Easter Bonnet Contest
There’s Also the Matter of a Bunch of Baby Goats Running AroundBy Joe Starkey
Get Thee to This Lunch Pop-Up Immediately
New on the lunch scene in Uptown Oakland: Kured. It’s a casual pop-up situation in Duende’s Bodega space featuring three housemade sausage sandwiches, plus a few others involving things like crispy chicken and cured pork shoulder. We hope you’ve enjoyed receiving this sandwich news as much as we’ve enjoyed delivering it.
The Goonies. Cats. The Goonies and Cats.
Tomorrow evening marks the next in an ongoing series of movie nights at KitTea Cat Cafe. It’s a BYOB scenario where you hang out and watch such classics as The Goonies (tomorrow) and The Dark Crystal (next time) while being surrounded by purring cats. So let’s not complicate it any more than that.
Let’s Get Some Merino Wool on Your Feet
Allbirds, purveyor of comfy-as-all-hell merino wool shoes, has just soft-opened their first retail and concept store in our fair city. Meaning you may now procure foot sheaths that were formerly only available online, plus pick up exclusive merchandise like a sheep enamel pin saying “Ewe do ewe.” It’s... mostly shoes, though.
Here Comes That One Goat Festival Again
The wildly popular Goatchella is back this year at Ferry Plaza to satisfy your cravings for all things, yes, goat. They’ll have goat cheese cooking demos, a food-related scavenger hunt and baby goats wandering to and fro. Why, what did you think something called Goatchella would be?
Two Easter Brunches. One’s Got a Best Bonnet Contest.
Easter means brunch. Thus, two glorious options: Belcampo’s got bacon french toast and take-home dinner kits, should you feel the need to fake it in the best way possible. Finn Town’s got biscuits, ham, a Who Framed Roger Rabbit screening and a Best Bonnet contest. Finally, a bonnet contest.
