Another week, another guide to the very exciting new things you should be doing and eating right now in San Francisco. This week’s lineup includes festive berry pies, a virtual cocktail class for a good cause, and an excuse to get some fresh air and excellent stuffed pizza.
Virtual Cocktail Class with Friends and Family
On Thursday, July 1st, one of our favorite bars in Oakland will host a virtual cocktail class to raise money for Franky’s Fund, a memorial fund dedicated to supporting single mothers pursuing higher education. For $20, Friends and Family owner Blake Cole will show you how to make three different large-format cocktails, including a mezcal margarita and a Lo-Fi spritz. See more details and buy tickets here.
Palm City is home to massive hoagies and an impressive wine selection - and for the first time since opening in March 2020, they’re offering indoor dining in their casual, light-filled space. So stop by the shop in the Sunset to grab a seat and enjoy sandwiches, salads, and desserts with a glass of wine. Seating is first come, first served.
This brewery opened a couple of months ago - and it’s a great spot to suggest for a casual catch-up with friends, or for some pre-baseball drinks if you happen to be heading to next Monday’s home game (the brewery is just a quick walk from Oracle Park). They have tons of beers on tap, plus Mission-style hot dogs and paratha tacos.
Oakland-based pie pop-up Edith’s Pie recently started offering pickups in SF, just in time for all of your 4th of July needs. Their special holiday menu includes triple berry or sour cherry pies with butter crust, and can be pre-ordered here. Pick up pies at Grand Coffee in SF (July 2nd) or The Alice Collective in Oakland (July 3rd).
Briones Regional Park
If you’re looking for an excuse to get out of the house this week, we suggest taking a hike. We just updated our guide to great Bay Area hikes, which also includes the meals to look forward to after you fulfill your steps quota for the day. New to list: a loop through cow-filled Briones Regional Park, followed by a stuffed pizza.
