Hopscotch Turns Three Tonight; FREE Smitten Ice Cream for Dear Ol' Dad on Sunday

Plus a boozy pop-up at Cease & Desist, and a St. George Spirits happy hour at Alta CA.


OAKLAND— Hopscotch is celebrating its three year anniversary tonight, hosting a dinner inspired by their menu at the James Beard House in New York. Multiple courses will be paired with cocktails and wine, including dishes like coriander lamb tataki with yuzu kosho yogurt and cold smoked hamachi with ikura, fried nori and ponzu. The dinner is tonight, Thursday, June 18 at 6:30 p.m.; if that's too last minute, stop by for $3 specials during lunch and dinner, now through Sunday.

PACIFIC HEIGHTS— FYI, Father's Day is this weekend. For a sweet and easy mode of celebration, dads can stop by the new Smitten Ice Cream (2404 California St.) for a free helping of ice cream on Sunday, June 21. And if procreation isn't your thing, the first 100 visitors will also receive free ice cream, to celebrate the first day of summer. It's a win/win. [EaterWire]

MISSION— Bottomless mimosas, cheap drinks and a DJ seem like appropriate accompaniments for an all day pop-up brunch at Cease & Desist (formerly known as Buffalo Club). CHICA will serve up their Mexican-American brunch menu from 10:30 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 21. RSVP here for drink specials. [EaterWire]

MID-MARKET— Get a boozy taste of St. George Spirits at their happy hour, hosted at Alta CA. Sample their green chile vodka, California citrus vodka and rum, or enjoy a special craft cocktail from Alta's bar. Free bar snacks will also be available during the happy hour, from 4:30 p.m.-8:00 p.m., or stick around for dinner as usual in the dining room. [EaterWire]
