Things to do for October 04, 2017
A Fledgeling Taco Emporium and the Fanciest Laundromat You Ever Did See
To be Fair, Said Laundromat Has Sandwiches and Sightglass CoffeeBy Joe Starkey
This Shop Is Weird, But Good Weird
A new shop of oddities, curiosities, art and lunchboxes has opened in Inner Richmond from an owner who's now parting with the very collectibles her father spent a lifetime amassing. Oh, and the months have themes. October is "Spooky," November is "Old Timey" and December is "Sci Fi." At least October makes sense.
The Laundromat/Café Hybrid You Never Knew You Needed
In an attempt to make going to the laundromat not just tolerable, but enjoyable, Laundré has opened in a clean, high-ceilinged space with plenty of room for work, wi-fi and a café with Sightglass coffee and packaged food. Typical laundromat stuff.
Time to Party Like It's 1999 at the Douglas Room
That gem of a cocktail bar, the Douglas Room, has started a Throwback Thursday party with DJs, an all-night happy hour menu with $5 Fort Points and $5-$15 bar bites and homemade ZIMAs with Lo-Fi dry vermouth and either gin or vodka. Nope, you're not done with ZIMA yet.
Here Are Some New Tacos Since You Love New Tacos
Lower Nob Hill has a new Mexican option in the form of Chisme Cantina that's serving tacos on tortillas flown in from... Chicago. They've also got homemade sangria, coconut horchata and local beers like Barebottle's California Cologne. And Chicago tortillas in case you missed that part.
Dolores Park Café Celebrates 20 Years, and So Do You
On Saturday, since you'll already be on your way to the park, head to Dolores Park Café for their 20th anniversary celebration featuring pitchers of beer, burgers grilled on the patio, live music and "treats for guests." You love a good mystery treat.
What Else Is New
Could Adam Sandler Win an Oscar?
We're referring, naturally, to the comedic actor's dramatic turn in arguably the best Netflix original movie to date, The Meyerowitz Stories. Other things to read this week: 1) Our chat with Pulitzer prize-winning author Jeffrey Eugenides about his new book; and 2) an essential guide to building a great home bar.
