6 Exciting Things To Do & Eat May 2022

Breakfast tacos, a pig roast, upcycled pizza, and more.

Somehow, we blinked, and May appeared. There’s plenty to do and eat in SF and beyond this month, so we’ll get right to it. Read on for the pop-ups, highlighted openings, special events, and collaborations to put on your radar. 

Carnaval Parade x Whole Pig Feast

Prubechu is hosting another whole pig feast on May 29th—this time, it coincides with the Carnaval San Francisco parade that’s going down in the Mission. Grab a ticket ($80) here for a 1pm or 1:30pm seating, and enjoy a front row seat to the performances and floats while getting into a spread of Chamorro sweet rolls, chicken kelaguen, roast pig, and more.  

Paloma Week At La Cocina Municipal Marketplace

From May 23rd-27th, stop by the La Cocina Municipal Marketplace in the Tenderloin for Paloma Week. Each of their bartenders will serve their own take on the classic cocktail from 12-4pm—they’ll feature tequila produced exclusively by female distiller Mico Tequila, and each drink will cost $10.

Secondhand Saturdays 

Every third Saturday of the month starting May 21st, Sunset Mercantile is hosting Secondhand Saturdays from 10am-4pm. Expect to see lots of vintage, secondhand, and upcycled goods, plus food vendors, live music, and a pop-up skate rink. 

LoJo’s Tacos at the North Beach Farmers Market

One of our favorite SF-based pop-ups for bacon and steak and eggs breakfast tacos is LoJo’s Tacos. And now you can get your hands on them at their weekly stall at the North Beach Farmers Market on Saturdays from 9am-1pm. 

Neverland Bar Pop-Up

Neverland is an immersive Peter Pan-themed bar/experience that’s popping up at Trademark in SoMa from May 18th-August 7th. They promise themed cocktails, challenges, and prizes. Grab a ticket here.

New Opening: Shuggie’s Trash Pie & Natural Wine

Upcycled pizza is the star of the show at this new spot in the Mission. The grandma-style pies at Shuggie’s feature things like wilty greens, carrot top chimichurri, and blemished tomato sauce, all in the name of reducing food waste. The brightly colored, eclectic space is also home to lots of natural wine and other small plates like garlic knots and fried pickle kakiage. For more openings to check out, head here
