Everyone knows that the perfect Father’s Day gift is a shiny new speedboat filled with #1 Dad mugs. But giving your old man the same thing two years in a row would be tacky. So we’ve put together this handy assortment of tokens of appreciation for dear old dad right here.
Things to do for May 31, 2017
The Mission Gets Some New Kebabs and Things
There’s Also a New Bar in Here, So That’s NiceBy Joe Starkey
The Castro Gets a Bouncing Baby Le Marais Bakery
Problem: you’re craving a Croque Madame or some macarons but don’t want to go to the Marina or Fisherman’s Wharf. Solution: the new Castro location of Le Marais, which also has beer on tap. If you live near the Marina or Fisherman’s Wharf, you know... reverse all that.
Update Your Lunch Playbook Accordingly
One cannot survive on burritos alone. Okay, one probably can. Still, maybe consider shaking up your lunch game at Tahini, the new Mission spot for falafel, shawarma, kebabs and fries, all made to order for your grab-and-go delight. Which we assume is a thing.
First, You Walk Through an Unmarked Door. Then, You Drink.
A while back, we promised you a clandestine Tron-themed bar from Coin-Op. That day has come, and there are two things you should know: 1) It’s behind an unmarked door and you’ll be given instructions on how to enter once you’ve made a reservation. 2) You may now carry on.
We Trust You’ll Know What to Do With This New Bar
There’s a new bar Called Miller’s Rest in the former Fly Bar space. It’s where you go for comfort food like Parmesan polenta sticks and flatbreads. It’s where you go for smoked maple Old Fashioneds with bacon garnishes. It’s where you go other times and for other things.
