The Weekend Guide


What the brewhaha’s about.

Steep Brew Grand Opening Happy Hour
As far as we know, it’s the only bar-within-a-grocery-store in the city (hello, multitasking), with sixteen craft and local beers on tap, flat-screen TVs, an espresso bar, and a seasonal menu. Celebrate with beer guru Wesley Anderson, discounted brews, and complimentary bites.
Why: It’s hoppy hour.
When: Fri., 5-7 p.m.
Where: Whole Foods Market, 450 Rhode Island St., b/t 17th & Mariposa Sts., Potrero Hill (415-552-1155).

Aficionado at Tres
Starting tonight (and once a month going forward), Tequila Corrido fanatics pair their poison with tasty edibles. Bonus: New bar manager Joel Baker rolls out three new libations to preview his upcoming cocktail menu.
Why: Try the Grassroots (Tequila Corrido Blanco, Amaro Montenegro, sweet vermouth, lime juice, and rosemary) with Chaac Mool’s Yucatecan cuisine.
When: Tonight, 6-9 p.m.
Where: 130 Townsend St., at Stanford St. (415-227-0500).

FarmCurious’s Backyard Chickens Class
Learn to raise and benefit from having your own brood. The session covers everything from best breeds to coop design, plus cooking tips on making the best eggs ever.
Why: Meet like-minded chicks.
When: Sun., 2-5 p.m.
Where: Private home, Oakland (address clarified upon ticket purchase). Tickets ($34-$38.50) online at farmcurious.com.

Maverick Mystery Night
Revel in the holiday (it’s April Fools’, silly) with a little trickery — no menus, three courses ($40, plus $15 for wine pairings), as many ingredients as you can identify, and a prize for the person who guesses the most right at your table.
Why: Earn your supper.
When: Sun., reservations 5:30-10 p.m.
Where: 3316 17th St., b/t Valencia & Mission Sts. (415-863-3061). Reservations (required) online at opentable.com.

Market & Rye
Cheflebrity Ryan Scott’s latest venture involves six salads by the scoop (wild mushroom couscous, asparagus with olives and feta), solid sandwiches (cool ranch chicken or truffle egg salads on rye pretzel, sourdough, or whole wheat), and a bright and shiny space in which to enjoy them.
Why: Opt for 3-Sum Eats sweets (kitchen sink cookies and that root beer float Twinkie!).
When: Mon.-Fri., 11 a.m.-7 p.m.
Where: 68 W. Portal Ave., b/t Vicente & Ulloa Sts. (415-564-5950).

Inaugural SF Fashion Film Festival
The city’s most stylish congregate to present eight features (Barbarella, The Matrix, Marie Antoinette); fashion and documentary shorts (Miss Representation); and panel discussions dedicated to design, costume, and style.
Why: You better work.
When: Apr. 7 & 8.
Where: Roxie Theater, 3117 16th St., b/t Valencia & Guerrero Sts. (415-820-3907). Tickets ($10-$15) online at eventbrite.com.
