A Very Short Story About Very Nice Jackets and Denim

The denim gurus at Frame have just opened their first San Francisco retail location in Pac Heights, and they brought fall-friendly suede jackets, black leather jackets and things that aren't jackets with them. Take jeans, for example.

Now open, Frame, 2142 Fillmore St (at Sacramento), 415-799-1337

New Lunch and a Patio, Right This Way

a Mano, they of delicious handmade pasta fame, are opening their doors for lunch service tomorrow in Hayes Valley. They'll be adding two seasonal paninis, three low-ABV cocktails and some new outdoor seating. That last part should help you forgive them for that low-ABV part.

Lunch service starts Sept 28, Mon-Fri, 11:30am-3:30pm, Sat-Sun, 11:30am-5pm, a Mano, 450 Hayes St (between Octavia and Gough), 415-506-7401, see the menu

FOREIGN RELATIONS

A Venetian Carnival for the Ages

It's hard to believe that Foreign Cinema has been around for 18 years. It's less hard to believe that they're throwing a huge carnival party to celebrate with food, cocktails, circus and burlesque performances and hopefully no clowns. Probably clowns, though.

THAI ONE ON

New Thai in Oakland. Get Your New Thai in Oakland Here.

Oakland's got a new spot called Chai Thai Bar. You'll go for tapas like chicken wings with sweet chili sauce, and stay for drinks like the Crying Thaiger with plum-infused vodka, salted plum syrup, dimmi and lemon. You'd stay anywhere for plum syrup.

Now open, Chai Thai Bar, 4395 Piedmont Ave (at Pleasant Valley), 510-601-0305

One of Those Things Where You Eat and Drink a Bunch

For Tastemaker Collective's San Francisco debut on Saturday, they're throwing a rather sizeable party in Fort Mason with so much food, so many drinks and a normal amount of demonstrations from some of the city's best mixologists and chefs alongside live music and dancing. Which is just the right of amount of things.

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.
