An Ice Cream Shop That Scoops Cookie Dough, Too

Soon, you’re going to find yourself in the East Bay eating chocolate chip and brownie batter cookie dough alongside 16 flavors of ice cream. And you're going to do this because suddenly the Cookie Dough Parlor exists. We'll stop telling you what to do now, but that particular part felt important.

Now open, Cookie Dough Parlor, 1418 Pinole Valley Rd (between Henry and I-80), Pinole, 510-964-7622

The Swedish Are Coming, and They're Bringing Jackets and Stuff

Swedish-based Acne Studios has just opened their first San Francisco location slinging handsome jackets, jeans and leather boots out of a red-and-gray industrial store. Which is just a long way of saying that you're about to look better than other people.

Now open, Acne Studios, 18-24 Geary St, (between Grant and Kearny), 628-444-3238

There's a New Sake Bar in Town

The good people behind Shiba Ramen are celebrating the grand opening of their new taproom and sake bar. Yes, there will be shochu and Japanese beers. Yes, there will be bar snacks like the TPT Burger with yuzu kosho mayo and shiso. Oh, and sake. That, too.

Quick, to the Pop-Up Night Market
UNDISCOVERY ZONE

Quick, to the Pop-Up Night Market

On Friday, head to Undiscovered SF. It's the new monthly Filipino night market in the Old Mint building, and it's going to have many a delicious thing from the likes of Mestiza, Hookt Donuts and Cross Hatch Eatery alongside crafts and live music. It's okay if you're not pumped about crafts.

Two of Our City's Favorite Restaurants Return

After closing for a bit of R&R (refurbishing and retooling of menus), both Serpentine and State Bird Provisions have returned to us with updated interiors and menus, though both have kept some favorites. Check out Serpentine's new cocktails and State Bird's peg-less walls. So shiny. So new.

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.
