Cooling Off in the Sunset, Finding Dodgy Glam in the Mission, and Going Euro in SOMA: A Foodie Day Planner
Let's do lunch:
Who knows, might even be hot in the Sunset today. SF Weekly food critic Meredith Brody says cool off with vegetable tempura and cold zaru soba at Hotei (1290 Ninth Ave. at Irving).
No DJs tonight, but who cares? Console yourself with $4 well drinks and an ambience that's part louche, part glam: Bruno's (2389 Mission at 19th St.), 7-9 p.m.
It's got glittery black chandeliers and a whiff of Euro voguishness. Take it all in while throwing back $3 Paulaner drafts, $5 house wines and the pastis and absinthe drinks called St. Tropez, and $6 cocktail specials: Chez Papa Resto (4 Mint Plaza at Fifth St.), 5-7 p.m.
