Somehow we blinked and it’s the last week of August. If you’re looking for ways to fill your social calendar before we’re launched into September, you’re in the right figurative Internet place - this week’s roundup has a lasagna pop-up at a Mission bowling alley, live music on a FiDi garden patio, and more.
Marinucci’s at Mission Bowling Club
On Wednesday, August 25th, pasta shop Marinucci’s is hosting a lasagna pop-up at Mission Bowling Club from 4-8pm. The menu will include focaccia, meatballs, and four different types of lasagna, all of which you can dig into on their patio, or while bowling inside.
Black Restaurant Week
Black Restaurant Week in the Bay Area has been in full swing since August 20th, and you still have until the 29th to take advantage of dine-in and takeout specials from a ton of Black-owned restaurants across the Bay. You can find the list of participating bakeries, cafes, restaurants, and pop-ups here.
Happy Ice is an LA-based food truck that specializes in colorful vegan water ice. (You can read more about the truck here.) As part of its summer pop-up tour, the truck will be parked outside of Stonestown Galleria from August 27-29th, so you can get your hands on the dairy-free frozen dessert.
Live Music at The Vault Garden
If it’s been a while since you saw live music, consider this: The Vault Garden in the Financial District is hosting a trio of chamber musicians on their patio on Sunday, August 29th at 5pm. Tickets are $55 and include a beer or a glass of wine (it’s $35 to add on a prix-fixe dinner from the restaurant). Snag your tickets here.
For charcuterie and cheese, tinned fish, and other small plates, check out Chezchez, a new spot from the team behind Trick Dog. The bar and restaurant opened last week in the Mission, and focuses on aperitifs - meaning there’s plenty of spritzes and negronis to go around.
Eat Some Corn
In case you missed it, we rounded up a few of our favorite corn-centric dishes in the city right now. And before peak corn season is over, you should definitely partake in a very official corn crawl and try them all. Corn triangoli, corn mochi, furikake-covered corn on the cob, and more await.
