Head over to Nombe tonight to kick off their inaugural sake and izakaya dinner. Start with four tastes of different zingy raw (unpasteurized) sake known as namazake. Pair them with a little halibut and black truffle soup, asparagus tempura and lamb belly. And if the first four sakes aren't enough, they'll have another flight at the ready. Because you can have cooked sake tomorrow.
Things to do for March 18, 2010
Raw Sake, 50-Cent Margaritas and Rooftop Cocktailing
The weekend is betting on itself.
The SFMOMA officially joined the Thursday-night-at-the-museum scene, which means tonight you can fill up on coffee-inspired charcuterie and meat-inspired desserts from Bi-Rite, Bar Tartine and Blue Bottle Coffee at the rooftop garden. Then arm yourself with a few cocktails and explore the galleries. We think Picasso would approve.
March Madness at the Taco Shop
Nick is opening his doors at 9am tomorrow, tuning all 10 big-screen, high-def TVs to basketball and dishing out huge breakfast burritos like the chorizo/bacon/egg La Bomba. There'll be beer-by-the-bucket specials—and, if you stay late enough, dollar tacos and 50-cent margaritas will also be in your future. Odds are that won't be a problem.
Pretty much anything even tangentially related to the cocoa bean will be here at this eight-hour chocolate bomb of an event. We're talking 50,000 square feet of cocoa, including a live body frosting demo—no word on whether it's interactive.
Check out this extreme, nontraditional, Jewish-inspired beer dinner with Shmaltz Brewing's He-Brew. Expect Pastrami on Rye Sliders, bacon-wrapped sweetbreads and Amber Ale Braised Ribs from the a la carte menu. Yes, we know bacon's not kosher, but we're not going to say anything...
