6 New Things To Do & Eat In San Francisco This Week

On deck: an outdoor movie, live jazz, half-off oysters, and more.

Written by
Updated July 20th, 2021

We’re officially over halfway through July. And we hope you’ve been eating well, having fun, and counting down the days until the new Survivor season. For this week’s plans, you’re in the right place - there’s lots going down, including new restaurant openings, live jazz, and other special events.

SPRO Mission Dolores

Looking for a new coffee shop to check out? We’ve got a suggestion: SPRO Mission Dolores, the first brick-and-mortar from the SPRO Coffee Lab truck (they usually post up at Spark Social). They have cold brew, pour-overs, and espresso drinks made with ube or smoked agave rose syrup, along with pastries and breakfast items like mochi waffles or avocado toast.

Watch An Outdoor Movie at Thrive City

Thrive City is hosting outdoor movies on the videoboard outside of Chase Center every Saturday until August 28th. This weekend (July 24th at 6pm), they’ll show Inside Out or Toy Story depending on an audience vote (there’s currently a poll in their Instagram story). Other upcoming movies include Black Panther, Yesterday, and Grease. There’ll also be food and drinks, or you can bring your own (no outside alcohol, though). Admission is free, but it’s first come, first serve.

Live Jazz at Cocotte

Cocotte is a tiny French restaurant in Russian Hill that’s perfect for dining solo. They currently have jazz performances daily, so if you currently have a big, live music-shaped hole in your heart, stop by to enjoy some while you eat things like mussels, rotisserie chicken, and a great coq au vin.

Oyster Happy Hour at Billingsgate

Billingsgate in Noe Valley is one of the best new spots in the city for fantastic, fresh seafood - and they recently started offering a new Oyster Happy Hour from Tuesday-Friday, 3-5pm. Head over to slurp on oysters and cava, all half off, in their new indoor dining setup.

Jo’s Modern Thai

On Friday, July 23rd, Jo’s Modern Thai is celebrating its grand opening in Oakland’s Laurel District. Their menu includes pad kee mao with brisket from Smokin Woods BBQ, oysters with a Thai mignonette, and cocktails. This weekend, they’re open from 4-9pm for walk-ups only.

The Mill

In case you forgot what it’s like to sit down inside a coffee shop, head to The Mill. The NoPa spot just reopened for dine-in for the first time since the pandemic hit, which means you can once again kick back in their bright, tiled space with some excellent toast and coffee in an actual mug.
