Things to do for May 02, 2018
Cinco de Mayo and the Kentucky Derby are Your Weekend's Perfect Storm
Allow Us to Help You Navigate the MadnessBy Joe Starkey
Rice Paper Scissors Is Back With a Big, Beautiful Dumpling Pop-Up
You've missed Rice Paper Scissors as they've been gearing up for their brick and mortar. And they've missed you back. And because they do, they're about to host a Rice Paper Dumpling pop-up with fried pork mochi dumplings and chicken wings. Such a sweet story.
Cento Osteria Isn't Open Yet. Still, You're Going.
The highly anticipated Cento Osteria is almost here, and you can get a sneak peak tomorrow night at an exclusive preview party featuring anything from sbagliato cocktails to pasta stuffed with sausage, pancetta and amaretto crumbs. In this case, "can" means "will."

A Very Beer- and Grilled Cheese-Forward Block Party
Berkeley favorite Jupiter is throwing their first-ever Gravity Fest for the premier of their High Gravity IPA. Basically, they're hosting a block party with bands, local artists and food by Grilled Cheez Guy and Hog's Apothecary. Those last words felt more important than some of the other ones.
You're Not Done Derby-ing Yet
And in other Derby news, it's time to don your biggest, floppiest hat and/or seersucker-everything for Barrel Head Brewhouse's Derby party with drink specials, raffle prizes and a Best Dressed prize. Not enough people dress up as horses for these things.
