The Weekender

Dear Club Dine In! Members,

This long weekend is finally upon us, which (hopefully) means that summer is here! If you don’t have plans to get out of town, here is a local’s game plan for you.

Fri-Sat May 28-29 • Citizen Cake• 11AM

Everyone shuttered when the legendary Citizen Cake closed a few months ago. But a “Coming Soon” sign on an empty store front in Pacific Heights brought much hope. However, it might be a couple of months before things actually get started, so Elizabeth Falkner is going to unveil a pop-up Citizen Cake shop this week at her SoMa spot, Orson. Starting at 11am on Friday and Saturday until everything’s sold out, Falkner and friends will be selling a host of Citizen Cake items, both newly-imagined and from their greatest hits collection.

Fri-MonMay 28-31 • Earth to 5 Star • 12-6 PM

Within the historic vaults of the Old Mint, explore the past, present and future of food and drink in the San Francisco Bay Area. Each day there will be a live presentation exploring the history of food in the Bay Area and the people who have made that history.

Friday May 28 • Wine Release Tasting • 12-4 PM

Warmer weather is upon us, and with it, the Sol Rouge 2010 Spring Release! Included in this release is a very special white wine that promise to pair well with warm sunny days and three reds that will compliment just about anything you can grill up on the barbecue. The wines are included in this offering include their 2007 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that received a Double Gold Medal and tied for Top Cabernet Sauvignon honors at the 2010 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.

Friday May 28 • Coco500 Anniversary • 4-6 PM

Chef Michael Morrison has created a delicious and diverse menu featuring the freshest seasonal ingredients. Local seafood, handmade pastas, wood fired pizzas and artisanal meats make up the dishes while the freshest farmers market fruits and vegetables round out the menu. For their 5th anniversary, they are offering a special menu of $5 cocktails, appetizers, beer and wine.

Saturday May 29 • Think Walk • 1-3 PM

Before bikes were invented, the Wiggle was a foot trail to avoid the hills of San Francisco. Change the way you see the landscape as we talk about everything from art and bike politics to floods, lakes and native societies. Free. Donations encouraged.

Saturday May 29 • Lake Merritt • 9AM

Stroll along Lake Merritt in Oakland before heading over to the Grand Lake Farmers Market where you are more likely to see locals than tourists. Grab lunch and a seat near the live entertainment.

Sat-Sun May 29-28 • San Francisco Carnaval • 10-6PM

One of the city’s most spectacular traditions, San Francisco Carnaval showcases the very best of Latin American, Caribbean, African and fusion cultures and traditions with a diverse array of food, music, dance and artistry, including works created by the talented community of Mission District residents and Bay Area artists.

Sun May 30 • City Kayak • 12-6 PM

See the city from a different point of view with City Kayak’s two-hour downtown tour. From your kayak the only sounds you’ll hear are lapping waves, migrating birds, and perhaps the occasional “Ahoy!” from a passing sailboat. No experience necessary.

Mon May 31 • R&R • 12-6 PM

Visit your favorite spa, watch a movie, detox, or simply “catch up” on things!

Have a wonderful, safe weekend!
