The Long Weekend Is Nigh. This Sale Can Help.

You need a Robert Gellar anorak and some Our Legacy chinos. Maas & Stacks has those and many other things for you at 30% off as part of their summer sale. Thus concludes the part where we tell you what you need and what Maas & Stacks has.

10 Courses of Date-Friendly Deliciousness in the Mission

Francisca’s just soft-opened in the Mission after a fire shuttered Palace and allowed the chef/owners to rebuild their restaurant exactly as they wanted. Step one: name it after one of their grandmothers. Step two: 10-course tasting menu. Sounds about right.

FOR THE BIRDS

An Oakland Favorite Is Born Anew, This Time With Booze

You were sad when Mockingbird closed in order to move into their new space. But you’ll be happy to hear that they’re finally open again, this time with a full liquor license so you can enjoy their overnight pork sugo with a Manhattan. All pork sugo and humans should be so lucky.

Saturday
On the Drinking of Beer and the Celebrating of America
SO ON AND SO FOURTH

On the Drinking of Beer and the Celebrating of America

Celebrate the 4th before the 4th at this food-truck-catered party with fire pits, cornhole, giant Jenga and a tap takeover from High Water Brewing. And s’mores. There will also be s’mores.

Fine, We’ll Just Say It. This Is a Cougar Ball.
BETTER WITH AGE

Fine, We’ll Just Say It. This Is a Cougar Ball.

Come Saturday, you’ll want to don your finest attire and head to the Monroe lounge for a party geared toward women of a certain age and the men who love them. Feels like we can probably just gingerly leave those words there and be on our merry way.

What Else Is New

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.
