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.

Now open, Kured, 468 19th St (at Broadway), 510-555-1212

The Goonies. Cats. The Goonies and Cats.
SO IT WAS KITTEN

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.

Now soft-open, Allbirds, 27 Hotaling Pl (at Jackson), 888-963-8944

Here Comes That One Goat Festival Again
GOAT EARLY, GOAT OFTEN

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?

SILLY RABBIT

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.

Apr 16, 10am-3pm, Belcampo Meat Co., 1998 Polk St (at Pacific), reserve at 415-660-5573; Apr 16, 10am-3pm, Finn Town, 2251 Market St (between Noe and Sanchez), reserve at 415-626-3466

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.
