Bright lights, big weekend.
WE HAVE A SITU’ATION
You’ll recall In Situ, Corey Lee’s big-deal restaurant at the MOMA that recreates dishes from the greatest restaurants in the world. Right, well, they serve dinner now. Which means you have even more chances to eat things from Husk and Noma. So that’s pleasant.
Should you find yourself in Grand Lake anytime soon, you’ll want to swing by the new Grand Fare Market. It’s full of things like housemade charcuterie and cheese, plus sandwiches and wines that you’ll probably want to enjoy on their light-strung garden patio. Not to be too presumptuous or anything.
In Japan, you can get beer topped with frozen foam. And turns out, you can also get it at Chaya’s summertime Matsuri Beer Garden, in addition to chicken wings on skewers and octopus tacos and stunning views of the Bay Bridge. Japan doesn’t have a Bay Bridge.
This Saturday, a mac-and-cheese-off will happen. It’s basically where over 10 food trucks and restaurants make you mac and cheese and you vote for whichever one you like the best. There’s also giant Jenga, beer and live music. But mostly mac and cheese.
TAKE A HIKE
Camping and summer just make good sense. Especially when said camping involves gear from Alite and Welcome Stranger’s Great Outdoors pop-up collaboration. Among your future findings: camp chairs, cooler packs and other things you need for the woods. Or Dolores Park. Which still counts.
