Mall Eats, Dirty Music, and Home Cooking: A Foodie Day Planner
Let's do lunch:
Ah, the joys of hanging out at the mall -- only instead of giant pretzels and pizza dripping orange grease, grab something delicious: SF Weekly food critic Meredith Brody says seek out the fresh spring rolls and caramelized chicken claypot at Out the Door (Concourse Level, Westfield San Francisco Centre, 865 Market at Fifth St., 541-9913).
Get $1 off all drinks during Friday happy hour at Skylark Bar (3089 16th St. at Valencia, 621-9294), 5-8 p.m. Once loaded, wallow around in Music Like Dirt, featuring Jamaican oldies and reggae.
It's Alisha's Home Cookin' Friday: chili con carne, chicken pot pie, and something called blushin' bunnies (no clue), plus happy-hour drink specials at The Riptide (3639 Taraval at 47th Ave., 681-8433), 4-7 p.m.
