Starting Tuesday July 6th, ~STARBELLY~ is launching Patio Picnic Tuesdays from 5pm-8pm. The patio was recently freshened up with heat lamps, plants, and a retractable, striped canopy, so now they want to show it off. Every Tuesday evening, you can swing by for a family-style urban picnic with dishes from chef Adam Timney, like fried chicken, grilled brats, ribs, sloppy Joes, sides and salads, pies, and cobbler. You can arrive anytime during the three-hour picnic dinner service and load up your plate (no seating times). Seats are $25 per person, and guests are welcome to second helpings. The special will run every Tuesday from 5pm-8pm through August 31st. Beverages available for purchase (not included in the picnic dinner price) are wine, sangria, lemonade, micheladas, and pitchers of beer. Reservations accepted, but not required, and walk-in parties are welcome. 3583 16th St. at Market, 415-252-7500.
