Calling All Last-Minute Mother’s Day Gifters

Tonight, SFMade is holding an event at Barebottle Brewing where tickets get you a gratis tasting and a chance to grab a last-minute gift for mom from local vendors like Urban Farmgirls, Mafia Bags and Poco Dolce Chocolates. We have it on good authority that moms still love chocolate.

Baked Goods. Baked Goods for Everyone.

The long-awaited brick-and-mortar version of the former delivery-only bakery known as Kahnfections has opened in the Mission. Which basically just means that you can grab bacon cheddar scallion scones and cinnamon rolls whenever you want. Which is now.

Now open, Kahnfections, 3321 20th St (between Shotwell and Folsom), 415-525-3328

Tell Your Dolores Park Picnics to Get Ready

With the weather getting better every day, it’s probably best if you spend a lot more time in Dolores Park. Related: Dolores Outpost is a nice new corner store with fancy edible things and six perfect mixers like basil mojito on tap. Might be time to check your rum reserves.

Mario Kart, Only in Real Life

Dreams really do come true. No, not that one. The one where you and a friend get to play real life Mario Kart in Golden Gate Park thanks to an app on your phone that you’ll use to race and fire shells. Weird? Yes. Worth it? We think so. Probably. Fine, yes.

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.
