Just a Whole Bunch of Tech Weirdness in Hayes Valley

Local startup B8ta has just opened their flagship store in Hayes Valley, offering a hands-on experience with tons of tech you can usually only order online. Feel free to try out VR demos or buy a totally unnecessary single-wheel skateboard thing. Another option would be to not buy that.

Now open, B8ta, 590 Hayes St (at Laguna), 415-534-5279

Thursday
Looks Like You're Having Vietnamese for Lunch
THE TEMPLE LIFE

Looks Like You're Having Vietnamese for Lunch

Head to the Temple Club tomorrow for a little French-influenced Vietnamese lunching under murals inspired by old Vietnamese propaganda. You could go for the grilled chicken with lime leaf, or be a bit more adventurous with tamarind frog legs. Always err on the frog leg side whenever possible.

Now open, The Temple Club, 2307 International Blvd (at 23rd), Oakland, 510-479-3680

Beer and Food. So Much Beer and Food.
FLASH SUD WARNING

Beer and Food. So Much Beer and Food.

Tomorrow evening, the Sirwisa Brewing Collective is hosting an event wherein home and commercial brewers have been connected with local farmers to brew paired beers. Tickets get you tastes from 18 different food and beer stations. Tickets get you glory.

Saturday
Gin and Sexy Everything's at Whitechapel
CORPSE REVIVER

Gin and Sexy Everything's at Whitechapel

It's almost time to don your most creative costume and head to the city's finest gin bar, Whitechapel, for their Corpse Train party. They'll have a DJ, Halloween-themed decorations and $500 in best costume prizes. No, Stranger Things will not win again this year.

ROOF, THERE IT IS

Hotel VIA Debuts Their Rooftop to the Public. Oh, and Throws a Halloween Party.

VIA is debuting their Sunday rooftop day-parties this week with a Halloween bash. Costume prizes will be awarded throughout the day and you can rent a cabana for up to eight people, so your group of Different Phases of Winona Ryders can relax in style. That's just... that's just one costume idea.

Oct 29, 1-8pm, $20 (at door), Rooftop at VIA, 138 King St (between 2nd and 3rd), 415-200-4977

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.
