Things to do for April 04, 2018
Rejoice. Avocado Con Is Here.
And So Is the Jack London Square Version of Elbo RoomBy Joe Starkey
Breakfast Burritos and Caffeine, Right This Way
If you've been looking for a new little café with a mezzanine and a giant mural of an octopus, then lucky day. Karma Café has everything you need, up to and including smoothies, breakfast burritos, sandwiches and espresso. Definitely espresso.
Behold: The Rise of Elbo Room Jack London
With the fate of the beloved Elbo Room still a little uncertain, it's comforting to know that their second iteration has just opened in Jack London Square. Grab a cocktail in the bar/pub area downstairs, then head upstairs during a live show to dance like (hopefully) no one's watching.
Timbuk2 is Having a Break-Up-With-Your-Bag Sale
Bring in your old, gently used bag to Timbuk2's Hayes Valley location this weekend and magical things will happen. Namely, you'll get 30% off of a completely new, much more stylish and commute friendly bag by trading in the old one. Still counts as magic.
Show Up. Drink Drinks. Leave With Cool Stuff.
Just a friendly reminder that the Renegade Craft Fair is coming back this weekend, which means tons of local makers slinging their wares—like Campfire Studio, Roxanne Designs and Meg Meyers—alongside music and cocktails. We hope you've found this both friendly and a reminder.
It's Called Avocado Con, So...
Chances are, you like avocados. So you should probably grab tickets to Sunday's Avocado Con, which will feature special dishes from food trucks (Nombe's AvoFries with housemade lime-serrano aioli, Choux's avocado mousse...). There's an unlimited beer option, too. Well, "option."
What Else Is New
Should You Bet on Tiger Woods to Win The Masters?
We answered that question, and several others, in this hurried person's gambling guide to the tournament. We also had some lingering questions about "What It's Like to Go Through Life as a Really Beautiful Women." And here the most dangerous dive sites in the world. Yes, that's a challenge (but, like, be careful).
