Pizza and Beer and Tiki and 420

Unionmade's Extra 40% Off Sale Means You Get to Spring in Style
Spring is finally springing in our fair city, and you know what that means. Yep, not knowing whether you'll need a jacket or shorts every day of the week. Also, probably some gin. Regarding the former, luckily, Unionmade is helping with an extra 40% off sale items like Boglioli jackets and Unis shorts. So helpful.
The Community Thanks You for Drinking at This Pop-Up Bar
After the St. Paddy's Day fire shut down Tuk Tuk Thai, Rogue Ales, the Salzburg, Coit Liquors and Ferry Plaza Seafood, the community has come together with a pop-up bar featuring food from the affected places and an inventive cocktail list, the proceeds of which will go to displaced employees. Drink. Do good. Win-win.
Incoming: The First-Ever 420 Fest in Dolores
On Friday, head to Dolores Park for the first annual 420 Fest. It's different from every other Friday in Dolores in that this one is semi-official, with community organized events and installations. In fact, they're billing it as a mini-Burning Man. Though you may need more layers than a desert usually requires.
To Parigo, for the Pop-Up Patio Tiki Bar
Proving that an old dog can, in fact, learn new tricks, mainstay Parigo has mixed things up a bit by launching a pop-up Tiki bar on their patio featuring Mai Tais and Hawaiian Old Fashioneds alongside snacks like Hawaiian Hush Puppies and spicy shoyu poke. Good dog.
It's a Pizza Festival, So That's Fantastic
Pizza. It's the one thing that's pretty much universally loved. Unlimited draft beer probably ranks a close second. Serendipitously, Soma Streat Food Park is having a celebration of both on Sunday with a pizza fest. Bonus: you're invited.
