Beers + Brunch = Public House's Beerunch

Mimosas and Bloody Marys may dominate the brunch-beverage rankings, but MateVeza is aiming to change all that with their line of caffeinated brews, which derive their buzz from yerba mate. With a brew that packs both alcohol and caffeine, it's no wonder they're promoting the concept of "Beerunch," a magical time when drinkers can knock back a couple of brews without returning to bed by 2 pm.

Beerunch will be in full swing this Sunday, and the MateVeza folks have brought a lot of good friends along for the ride, with their rare brews in tow. The event boasts seven beers in total, each paired with a different brunch dish. San Diego-based Ballast Point's beloved Sculpin IPA, which is rarely found on draft in these parts, will be paired with huevos rancheros, while Sierra Nevada and Dogfish Head's second Life & Limb collaboration (also a draft rarity) will go head-to-head with Medjool dates wrapped in Niman Ranch bacon.

Bay Area Indie Rockers Deerhoof Make SFMOMA Their Stage for 'BAND'

If homage, like imitation, is the sincerest form of flattery, Jean-Luc Godard should welcome BAND, New York-based artist Adam Pendleton’s touring collaboration with San Francisco experimental rockers Deerhoof, which arrives Thursday evening at the city’s Museum of Modern Art.

Godard, who chronicled the Rolling Stones studio sessions that would ultimately produce the lead track of their 1968 classic Beggars Banquet in his documentary Sympathy for the Devil, used early rehearsals of that album’s biggest hit as the backdrop for a series of visual meditations on the Black Panthers, consumerism, Marxism, democracy and the revolutionary spirit of the late ’60s.

Art to Watch: September Gallery Guide

While San Francisco’s contemporary art scene is downright quaint compared to the likes of, say, Manhattan’s, this weekend’s sea of downtown gallery openings was testimony to how vibrant and overwhelming the art world can be, even in a dusty frontier town like ours.

Now the wine and cheese (or, if you’re Catharine Clark Gallery, tacos) are back in the fridge, but the art will remain quietly on display for at least a month longer. After wading through a lot of it, we’ve come up with a perfectly manageable selection of what is truly worth seeing this September.

Drink, Dance and Eat Oktoberfest Style with Nature Friends Tourist Club in Marin

This Sunday, the Marin Chapter of the Nature Friends Tourist Club opens their clubhouse for their annual Oktoberfest and Kinderfest celebrations. The Tourist Club is one of the area’s great treasures and this weekend is the chapter’s most popular event. The clubhouse is an Alpine style chalet on the side of Mount Tam with balconies and an outside dance floor that overlook Muir Woods. Club members will be pouring several German beers and selling home-cooked German food. Starting about 2, the legendary Joe Smiell and His Bavarian Band will be putting down the Bavarian style polka music and a folk dance group or two will perform periodically during the day.

City, Speak To Me: San Francisco in Words and Pictures

San Francisco is a city stuffed with hidden pockets of the weird and delightful. Sometimes it takes a photographer’s eye and a poet’s soul to find them. If you don’t have either, relax - there's an exhibit just for you. Julie Michelle, the eye behind I Live Here:SF and poet-in-motion Silvi Alcivar join forces to show you their San Francisco. Even if you have one hell of a poet’s soul, thankyouverymuch, there’s still plenty of the strange and lovely in this gallery exhibit at La Boutique. 

San Francisco's Southern Romance: Three Coming-Soon BBQ Restaurants

More into farm-fresh than slow-smoked, San Francisco isn't much of a BBQ town. Aiming to change that, a slew of Southern expats in the local restaurant industry will be stepping up to the picnic plate in the coming months. Take Elizabeth Wells, for example. A native of Montgomery, Alabama who's lived in San Francisco for about ten years now, her craving for "the true flavors of the SouthEast" has not abated. In October, Wells will be opening Southpaw, a Memphis-style BBQ restaurant with an on-site brewery and a fun tagline: "Put a little south in your mouth." Around the corner, the restaurant vets behind Hog & Rocks and Maverick will be opening a Hofbrauhaus-style, counter-service spot inspired by the classic "meat and three" restaurants of the South. And the Marina's got something hot in the slow-cooker too. More on what's in store after the hop.
