A few fun things to go with our sunny, springlike weather. First, ~STEAP TEA BAR~ is collaborating with HoneyPot Hemp CBD on a new beverage, The Green Queen, a matcha mint lemonade sweetened with 10mg of hemp-derived CBD. (You won’t feel any psychotropic effects—although it may help you feel more relaxed if your boss is stressing you out, you’re hungover, or you just finished a tough workout.) You can also add HoneyPot Hemp CBD as a “wellness shot” in any of the drinks on their menu. The drink is $8 and the shot is $2. 827 Sacramento St. at Grant.

Great news, the Mission Community Market returns on Thursday April 5th (4pm-8pm)! This spring, CUESA has taken over the market operations, and there will be some new sellers joining the market’s longtime vendors. Bring on the tacos de guisado and Yerena Farms strawberries. 22nd Street (between Mission and Valencia) and Bartlett Street.

On Sunday April 8th, don’t miss this hands-on Feaster Sunday dinner at ~THE PERENNIAL~ with Yana Gilbuena, of the Salo Series, who will be hosting a Filipino Kamayan-inspired feast in collaboration with Anthony Myint, who will be integrating his Burmese family recipes and Mission Chinese spice blends into the meal. Dinner will be served on banana leaves, at communal tables (no utensils required). Reservations available 6pm-8:30pm (reserve here). They will also be serving the menu on a walk-in basis in the bar. $55 per person (excludes tax, drinks, and gratuity).
