While I'm out of the habit of putting on my own Seder dinner, Passover is still my favorite holiday to celebrate. So when I saw that the new, cool deli in the Mission, Wise Son's, was having a Seder it sounded perfect. Anyone interested in joining me?
FYI, for my veggie friends out there I asked if they would have vegetarian options and they said:
"We will have a number of vegetarian options. We will definitely have mock liver, vegetarian matzoh ball soup, and a matzo kugel with roasted vegetables for those who do not eat brisket or chicken."
I have no idea how quickly this will book up, but I think we should sign up soon. It's $65 for dinner and $25 for the wine pairings. Note that I'd prefer to go on Friday 4/6, but it's also going on 4/7 and 4/8.

I've been wanting to check out the Treasure Island Flea Market for a while now, but it's just never been the right time. Well, it's going on this weekend and I could go either Saturday or Sunday. Anyone interested in joining me?

Just read about this cool event at the new "Ice Cream Bar" in Cole Valley. Here's what they say about it:
"Soda fountains were as prevalent as saloons in the U.S. until they fell out of fashion. Luckily, The Ice Cream Bar in Cole Valley is bringing back the tradition of the soda jerks and handmade, artisanal drink ingredients. And they're doing so in style with a vintage aesthetic that carries from the art deco letter styling to the black lacquered tabletops.
The Ice Cream Bar makes high-quality sodas and sundaes using recipes dating back to the 1800s, with a staggering variety of tinctures and techniques. For the bar menu, owner Juliet Pries turned to Rickhouse bartender Russell Davis to recreate drinks that have long gone out of style, including frappes, malts, phosphates, lactarts, egg creams, and panaceas (sodas with healing properties).
Come out and meet Juliet, Russel, and ice cream maker Ray Lai and learn a little something about the unexpected history of the soda fountain. You'll get to sample their most popular concoctions – including one of their elaborate sodas, a small version of their famous sundaes, and their house made candies – and learn a bit about how they're made as well at this private event for Bold Italic readers.
Attire: Vintage chic. Wear your fedoras, bow ties, and best flea market finds."
I went there on opening day and it's a pretty awesome place. Delicious ice cream in an old timey atmosphere. Anyone interested in going?
