Happy Birthday to ~KAHNFECTIONS~, celebrating their first year in the Mission with the introduction of a crispy chicken karaage sandwich, served on one of their amazing fresh biscuits with wasabi furikake, wasabi aioli, and Japanese pickled vegetables. On the weekend of May 4th-6th, 100 percent of the proceeds from the purchase of the new sandwich (as well as any other biscuit sandwich or biscuit purchase) will go to Support for Families. Check your sandwich packaging for some Willy Wonka-style presents ($10 gift cards!). And then the karaage sandwich will continue to be served on Fridays only. Open Mon-Fri 6am-3pm and Sat-Sun 8am-3pm. 3321 20th St. at Folsom.

Fellow lovers of music and food: the MUTEK festival is premiering in the U.S. (and San Francisco!) for the first time, and they lined up some pretty cool food programming too. It runs Thursday May 3rd-Sunday May 6th. MUTEK.SF is co-hosting pop-ups with Feastly, and as a passholder, you receive exclusive access to reserved seats for these dinners: use password EatMUTEK (case sensitive) when booking your seats. MUTEK.SF passport holders also get access to some reservations at top restaurants (Octavia, Rintaro, Montesacro Pinseria, Kin Khao, and others). Call the reservation line: 415-997-9054.

And then on Sunday May 6th at The Midway, Preeti Mistry is hosting a Juhu Beach Club revival! Some of her most beloved dishes will return just for one day! The early-bird brunch special (12pm-2pm) includes a special brunch pizza with chai bacon and eggs—that will get me out of bed. Presale $20 tickets get you a brunch pizza, fried cauliflower/wings or salad, coffee, and a drink ticket (a $30-plus value)—you also have to have an Experience ticket for the day/evening at The Midway to attend. Brunch closes at 2pm, so you must arrive beforehand to take advantage of this offer. There will also be food available all day, from the Bollywood Baller lamb/beef meatball slider to Love Veggie Indian Pizza (eggplant crush, asparagus, fava leaves, paneer).

tablehopper readers also get a 25 percent discount on a four-day passport, Nocturne 2 this Friday May 4th (incredible lineup at Mezzanine, including the West Coast premiere of Mexico’s Debit, part of NAAFI from Mexico City!), and Nocturne 3, for the techno lovers, on Saturday May 5th.
