Join 7x7 and San Francisco Ballet on Thursday, May 3 for our final “Thursdays at the Ballet” event of the season! The evening will include SF Ballet’s sparkling new production of Don Quixote, now featuring spectacular all-new scenery and costumes by Tony Award winning designer Martin Pakledinaz (whose design credentials also include SF Ballet’s iconic Nutcracker), plus an exclusive post-performance party in the Dress Circle Bar.
Your ticket includes a full evening of entertainment!
If tequila makes your tastebuds dance, you'll want to take your tongue over to Tres (formerly known as Tres Agaves) this Saturday, April 30 from 4-7 pm for an exclusive tequila tasting featuring a couple dozen brands (from Don Julio to Partida to Mescal and beyond), just in time for Cinco de Mayo. They'll also be serving bites inspired by the street cuisine of Jalisco, Mexico to complement this spirit of the season.
I was lucky enough to go on a trip to Tokyo with Joseph a couple years back and I’ve never seen a guy from the Bronx (and Joseph is indeed that guy) with such an undying passion for something about as far away from his Italian-American roots you can fathom.
Thursdays are the new Friday in San Francisco, from the Academy of Sciences' after-hours events to the SF Ballet, who've just thrown their hats in the ring.
This Thursday, the SF Ballet and ENCORE! combine an evening of world class dance followed by a private cocktail reception for young professionals with tequila tasting & cocktails provided by Tres Agaves, DJ beats and light bites. But don't drink too much Tequila or you might start reliving Black Swan.
Anyone else suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder?
So, although I'm down in Mexico working on an article, I was able to spend a day tasting tequila with Tres Agaves' Eric Rubin. In addition to Tres Agaves, Rubin is also involved in a new Mission District restaurant that he's opening with Maverick chef/owner Scott Youkilis. Called Hog & Rocks, it's slated to open next month on the corner of San Carlos and 19th streets. Here's the scoop, straight from Guadalajara.
Why Hog & Rocks?
In the past few years I've heard of other ballparks in America serving "gourmet" fare—sushi in Seattle, Cuban sandwiches in Miami, fish tacos in San Diego. At AT&T Park the food has historically been pretty standard—hot dogs, garlic fries, beer. But starting on Monday, opening day, there's a new game in town. Tres Agaves has taken over the three concession stands formerly leased by Compadres, so eating at the game is about to get a lot better. What's in store?
Nachos, made with housemade chips, real cheese sauce (no Whiz), pico de gallo and Tres Agaves' legendary carnitas.
Taco trios (your choice of chicken or pork)
and ... wait for it ...
