This Thursday November 2nd, San Francisco is getting some special guests, ~THE MEAT HOOK~ from Brooklyn, who will be doing a backyard cookout at ~NOPALITO~’s 9th Avenue location. And it’s an awesome fire relief fundraiser! Free entry. Sausages and drinks will be cash and carry with all proceeds going to UndocuFund. It’s going to be just like a backyard party. Hanging out, eating and drinking, and hopefully not freezing our butts off! Starts at 5pm. 1224 9th Ave. at Lincoln, 415-233-9966.

Last month, I got to slay my hangover at ~LORD STANLEY~ with their Full English Breakfast, and this Sunday November 5th, they’re doing it again! Come by for a hearty plate with fried eggs, toast, baked beans, black pudding, roasted tomatoes and mushrooms, bacon and sausage (by Thistle Meats), and brown sauce (I wanted a to-go container, it was so good). The Full English is $25. Draft beers, wine, coffee, tea, and fresh juice are available. Served from 11am-2pm. 2065 Polk St. at Broadway, 415-872-5512.

Another option is to either grab an awesome breakfast bag lunch (or you can stay!) for the upcoming Breakfast Club events at Cala on Tuesday November 7th (10am-12pm) or Lord Stanley on Wednesday November 8th (8am-10:30am). Click for tickets ($30) and more details.

For a non-meaty option, ~TRANSIT CAFE~ in the Presidio is now serving the Impossible Burger—chef Traci Des Jardins is serving it with roasted tomato, lettuce, and aioli on a Firebrand burger bun. 215 Lincol​n Blvd., Main Post, 415-561-4435​​​​​​.
