Just a Pleasant Little Place Filled With Matcha-Everything

Matcha. You're just... not sure if you like it yet. But if there's one place that'll get you on this train, it's the now-open Stonemill Matcha with matcha drinks, pastries made in house, baked goods from Tartine and even matcha butter toast. You knew some kind of toast was coming.

Kitchen Story Gets a Very, Very Sweet Spinoff
JUST DESSERTS

Kitchen Story Gets a Very, Very Sweet Spinoff

Popular brunch spot (read: bottomless mimosa spot) Kitchen Story has just opened a dessert-centric spinoff next door called U Dessert Story. Which is all desserts. Which means things like Thai Tea Lava Toast and Matcha Chocolate Lava Cake. We're done saying matcha now.

Saturday
Inflatable Artwork. That's What This Is.
BALLOON ANIMALS

Inflatable Artwork. That's What This Is.

If you're a fan of that inflatable waiving arm guy at car dealerships, you're going to love the new exhibit debuting Saturday at the Exploratorium with all kinds of giant inflatable structures like a room of insect eyes and giant humanoids. Ready your Instagram.

Sunday
The Snug Discovered Brunch Just in Time for Your Long Weekend
SNUG IT OUT

The Snug Discovered Brunch Just in Time for Your Long Weekend

Just when you thought the Snug couldn't get any better, they're here to prove you wrong with the debut of their brunch service. Get ready for smoked avocado toast and everything naan, then get ready to pair those with a Banana Hammock. The drink. To be clear, it's a drink.

THAT'S YOUR 'CUE

The Winery SF Is Hosting a Memorial Day BBQ So You Don't Have To

Memorial Day BBQs are fun. But also so much work. Which is why it's so kind of the Winery SF to throw a BBQ for you. RSVP for a gratis hot dog with your tasting purchase, then sip wines and gaze at the city skyline. Maybe rethink wearing white to a wine tasting, though.

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.
