You Love It When Sandwiches Play Hard to Get

Champaneria Kharma. Those words may not mean much to you. Until, that is, we tell you that it’s a new pop-up at Bloodhound involving casual and delicious things like tortilla espanola-inspired sandwiches with queso and pimento, each of which can be paired with a $5 glass of prosecco. Then it probably means dinner.

Last Wednesday of the month beginning Apr 26, 6-10pm, Champaneria Kharma at Bloodhound, 1145 Folsom St (at Hallam), 415-863-2840

Been Forever Since You’ve Had a Nice Himalayan Dinner

A new restaurant has just arrived in Inner Sunset with a chef who’s worked at a two Michelin-starred restaurant and traditional Himalayan/Indian plates like roasted cumin chicken with cilantro and ginger, plus seasonal prix fixe dishes like Atlantic salmon with burnt cucumber and citrus relish. Just in case you were wondering.

Hotel Rooms. A Pool. Gin. Art.

The Startup Art Fair is about to completely transform the Hotel Del Sol into a gallery space. The courtyard will become one large sculpture garden, each room will be turned into its own art exhibit and, yes, there will be drinks by the pool bar. So, way better than a museum.

Apr 28-30, times vary, $15-$100, Hotel Del Sol, 3100 Webster St (between Moulton and Greenwich), 415- 921-5520, tickets here

Found You a Nice Little Burger-and-Jazz Date Spot

The former South space in the SF Jazz Center has been overhauled and risen anew as B-Side. It’s a comfy new cocktail lounge and restaurant with uncomplicated drinks and crowd-pleasing food like fried chicken sandwiches and burgers with crispy cheese and pickled onions. Change is good.

To Coin-Op, for Bourbon and Gratis Pinball

Coin-Op, that handsome barcade with all the pierogies and Old Fashioneds, has launched free play (yes, that’s where all of the machines are set to free play) every last Sunday of the month. And, hey, this Sunday happens to be exactly that. Thanks, fate.

Last Sunday of the month beginning Apr 30, 4pm-2am, Coin-Op, 508 4th St (at Bryant), 628-444-3277

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.
