The weekend can't stop, won't stop.

OPENINGS

District 5 Opens in Western Addition

You remember it as Metro Kathmandu. And though not much has changed—same owners, minimal redecorating and they knew better than to mess with any of their signature dumpling-like momos—now you'll also find pastas and tagines. It's the Nepalese-Mediterranean joint you've been waiting for.

Now open, District 5, 311 Divisadero St (at Page), 415-552-0903

Suriya Thai Relocates to SOMA

Suriya Thai Relocates to SOMA

While Suriya closed its Valencia eatery earlier this year, you'll be glad to know that you can find its famous deep-fried Money Bags and Shrimp Pumpkin Curry on Howard. Not to mention that the parking gods are nicer in these parts.

Now open, Suriya Thai Restaurant, 1532 Howard St (at 11th), 415-355-9999

A Sweeping History of Rock 'n' Roll
MINT CONDITION

A Sweeping History of Rock 'n' Roll

Getting inside the historic, former money-stocking vaults of private-event space the Old Mint is a rare event, making an insider's look at rarely seen photos, posters and videos of rock legends like the Doors and the Grateful Dead in said vaults worth its weight in gold.

$10, 5-9pm July 16, 12-5pm July 17-19, Old Mint Building, 88 5th St, 415-537-1105 x100

Sunday
Bottomless Bloody Mary Brunch at Bacar
SOMETHING ABOUT MARY

Bottomless Bloody Mary Brunch at Bacar

Dishes like Crispy Pork Belly Potato Hash and Morgan's Ham and Eggs Breakfast Sandwich should provide enough of a base to take on four solid hours of Bloody Mary drinking. Order the Wake Up, made with caffeinated Blue Lotus Vodka, and you can pass on coffee.

$10, 10am-2pm every Sunday, Bacar, 448 Brannan St (at 4th), 415-904-4100

Cardboard Tube Fighting
BOUNTY HUNTER

Cardboard Tube Fighting

Sit back and recall your fondest childhood memories—chances are they didn't include cardboard-tube dueling leagues. But that doesn't mean it's not fun: Sunday is the day to check that one off your list.

4-6pm, July 19, Golden Gate Park (John F Kennedy Dr and Transverse)

Monday
Breakfast Begins at Salt House
SCRAMBLING

Breakfast Begins at Salt House

You've loved lunch at Salt House, and dinner too. So starting Monday, you can pick up breakfast as well. We like the chicken hash/cheddar scrambled egg sandwich—also known as Bob's Buttermilk Sage Biscuit—and a cup of Ritual Roasters coffee. After all, breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

6-10am, Mon-Fri, Salt House, 545 Mission St (at 1st), 415-543-8900
