Caution: More Stylish When Wet

These are good-looking shorts from Lacrosse Playground. Or so you thought. Because they’re so much more than that: hop into the nearest body of water and they’ve magically turned into swim trunks—with a pattern that only appears when they’re wet. Boom.

Patio. Pizza. Movie. In That Order.
PIE ANOTHER DAY

Patio. Pizza. Movie. In That Order.

Pizza and movies: strong-to-very-strong combo. And Pizzaiolo is acknowledging that fact tonight with the beginning of their summer movie series on the back patio. First up: Groundhog Day. First up: Groundhog Day.

Wednesdays through June 28 starting June 7, sundown, no cover, Pizzaiolo, 5008 Telegraph Ave (at 51st), Oakland, 510-652-4888

It’s a Tasting Room, Only for... Milk
MILKING IT

It’s a Tasting Room, Only for... Milk

Clover has a pop-up milk tasting room that just opened. Yes, it’s weird, but just weird enough that you’ll need to check it out. “Somooliers” will be pairing various milk varieties with cereals and granolas for you to try. No, you don’t have to call them “Somooliers.”

Mon, Wed, Fri through July 31, hours vary, Clover Tasting Room, 330 Fell St (between Gough and Octavia), 800-237-3315

The Bar Tartine Chefs Have Something New for You

For all of you still pining for the potato flatbread from Bar Tartine, happy day. Because Duna is the new fast-casual restaurant from the very same chefs that focuses primarily on Central European dishes. Which, hello again, flatbreads.

Found You a Nice Little All-Day Café

Potrero Hill has a new all-day bistro in the form of Parker Café, a French-inspired spot with Sightglass Coffee, salads, tartines, beer and wine. A French café with wine. That might just work.

Now open, Parker Cafe, 1399 18th St (at Missouri), 415-829-3796

To a Sunday Well Spent...

Thistle Meats in Petaluma is kicking off a Sunday Supper dinner series this week in collaboration with the chefs behind Michelin-starred Lord Stanley. Cocktails from Hopscotch’s owner/bar director will also be present and accounted for. What’s that? Stop drilling, we’ve struck oil?

June 11, 6:30-9pm, $85, Thistle Meats, 160 Petaluma Blvd N (between Washington and Western), Petaluma, 707-772-5442 for reservations

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.
