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.

Now open, Laundré, 2401 Mission St (at 20th), 415-795-1367

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.

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.
