This week, we’re listening to Planet Her on repeat, thinking about that Bennifer photo, and waking up in the absolute dead of the night to watch women’s gymnastics live from Tokyo. And, of course, curating this exciting list of new things to do and eat in SF. This one’s got a pop-up from a New York-based bakery, a new sports bar in Hayes Valley, and more.
Milk Bar at Gott’s
Milk Bar, the New York-based dessert spot known for colorful cakes and cookies, is popping up at Gott’s in the Ferry Building this Saturday and Sunday (July 31st and August 1st) from 12-7pm. They’ll be serving their birthday cake truffles and cereal milk soft serve, along with special soft serve sundaes created in collaboration with the burger spot. You can walk up or make a reservation here.
After a long hiatus, the cocktail bar above Mister Jiu’s in Chinatown has officially reopened their doors. Stop by for excellent, creative cocktails or some wine - they’re taking reservations, but walk-ins are okay, too.
Afterwork Bar is a new sports bar in Hayes Valley that opened this month. You can catch a game on one of their big screens and enjoy fried chicken sandwiches and burgers by The Bird and Super Duper Burgers. They also have a weekday Happy Hour where you can get into some $1 wings and $20 pitchers of beer.
Lobster Boil at The Vault Garden
On Saturday, July 31st from 5:30-9pm, The Vault Garden will host its second annual lobster boil. It’s $85 per person for a three-course meal, including burrata salad, cast-iron cornbread, strawberry macaron cheesecake, and lots of lobster. Reserve your spot here.
Summer Sundays at Zeitgeist
Every Sunday this summer, live musicians will take over the spacious back patio at Zeitgeist. There will be two sets: one from 2-5pm, and another from 6-9pm (you can see who’s performing here). Shows are free, so you can just head over, grab a cold beer and a burger, sit back, and enjoy.
Brunch at Jaranita
The Peruvian rotisserie restaurant in the Marina will launch their new brunch menu this weekend. It’ll include things like Dungeness crab omelettes with shrimp and huancaina sauce, poached eggs with aji amarillo hollandaise, and more.
