    Because 31 flavors has always felt about 77 too few, you're gonna want to stop by Schulzies: an LA-born bread pudding parlor now serving 108 different types of sweet bready goodness in a historical Hayes Valley haunt

    Started by a woman who could easily sub in for a Disney princess, Schulzies rotates an assortment of its 108 offerings daily via 12 chilled flavors, three warm flavors, and a smorgasbord of singing cutlery (okay, maybe not that last one)

    The names're all fun like Salted Caramel Sutra or Colin Raspernick ('9ers, wooooo!

    And they're super generous with the toppings, which're all included, even the "whiskey sauce"

    Speaking of whiskey, they've got a bunch of booze-filled flavors like Blazin' Rum Raisin, Gotta Have Guinness, and Neato Mojito, all of which you can get to-go and finish 'em while Baskin' in the sun.

    Small beginnings can beget great things: seeds become redwoods, your freshman basketball career leads to your JV basketball career (!), and a childhood bank turns into one of the most anticipated bars ever: Trick Dog. From the Bon Vivants (who've consulted in basically any worthwhile bar in the city), this three-year project of love was formed along the way with Warfield marble, scavenged steel case chairs, and brightly colored, custom-welded stools upholstered by a Jasper's barstar.

    Since you just bought a fair-trade lumberjack coat, by trading, at a fair, it's time to hit up the Mission's most ironic-mustache-friendly spot: KronnerBurger, a Jesus-candlelit joint in the overflow space for Bruno's that comes courtesy of a former Slow Club/Bar Tartine chef

    The drinks are crafted by a Locanda alumnus, with most coming in glass or pitcher form like this "Carbonated Mother (Sexing) Margarita"

    The main event is Waliyy Dixon, an American streetballer who spent his youth honing his streetball skills at 4th Ward Park in Jersey the burger, which comes with aged beef, dill pickled cucumbers, and the option to add bone marrow (option, accepted)

    Rather than serving routine... poutine (!), they're using beef cheek gravy (an extremely flavorful part of the animal) and cheese curds over fries, which you can also add bone marrow to

    And for dessert: Scotchocolate milk, a delicious combo of Scotch, cocoa, milk, honey, and salt

    Oh, and make sure you go when they're actually open, a (mar)quee part of being able to enjoy it.

    It's a story you've probably heard before: two accomplished former Commonwealth, Bar Tartine, and Contigo chefs meet, one of them tries to sell Lou Ferrigno's house, the other buys a bunch of inappropriate-but-hilarious billboards, they listen to several Rush albums together, and then they open Wine Kitchen in Lower Haight. Even though they specifically made the menu booze-first (per Tony La Russa's instructions), the food's actually pretty awesome too, including this romesco broth with soft egg, fingerlings, kale, and grilled bread. They have over 50 bottles of wine (half of which're available by the glass) and four on tap that you can get in a carafe to share... yeahhh, to share... Whatever you do, make sure it involves these sweetbread buffalo "wings" complete with shaved veggies, ranch, and Buffalo Bob's Hot Sauce (likely from Bill's less famous, more corpulent brother). And before you're all, "Wait, do they have beer at this wine bar?", shut up and look at the picture of Anderson Valley Bourbon Barrel Stout, the completion of which'll likely have you telling someone "I love you", man.

    For all those times you've thought, "God, I wish there was a restaurant based off the Spanish word for 'the magical quality a truly excellent performance can have and the impetus of creation at the deepest level'", wow, and also, head to Duende: an Oakland joint from a former Oliveto exec chef that's kitty-corner to the Fox (no, not the Fair and Balanced one).

    From everyone's favorite BBQ joint that pays homage to people who're statistically more likely to die nine years younger comes an awesome new whiskey club that you'll want to join even if you're (gasp!) a righty. Here's how it works: Register by getting your lady-killing name added to their special club book, which includes all of their 70ish different "working man's" level sippers. Then, to help speed along the process, try one of their three different whiskey flights, which're discounted and include select trios of browns (please be Graham, Kosar, and Groza, please be Graham, Kosar, and Groza, please be Graham, Kosar, and Groza...) like Craft Small Batch Bourbons and Peated American Single Malts (sigh). After finishing a shot of forty different whiskeys (not all in one night, you responsible bastard you), they'll buy you an entire bottle of your favorite one (pretty lady handing it to you not necessarily included). They're constantly going to be working on acquiring new, hard-to-get whiskeys, and rotating the flights, so make sure to drink up (left-handedly, of course).

    The only cool club you can get into without being imaginary friends with a stuffed tiger, Hillside Supper Club's the success story of two well-resuméd chefs and their pop-up permanently landing in the very Bernal restaurant they were using for their temporary gig

    HS features the above view (minus the napkin), plus rustic, California cuisine dreamed up by a duo that has collectively worked at Acquerello, Michael Mina, and Jean-Georges's J&G Steakhouse in DC

    Photo credit: Sara Roos Starters include the likes of Liberty Duck Liver Mousse and Nonna's Meatballs (which translates to Grandma's meatballs, and might leave you with some uncomfortable questions about "Grandma")

    Photo credit: John Hope Mains count braised pork cheeks and handmade cavatelli lamb sugo. And again: you can add bacon or a sous vide egg to any dish. Even this crispy millet cake that already has a sous vide egg? Mind. Blown

    They also have seven beers by the bottle and two on draft, including Almanac's Honey Saison. Try not to Pooh yourself

    As for that view, the bay windows look out on Precita Park, a site that certainly isn't G.R.O.S.S.

    Joining the 24th St restaurant-splosion, Caskhouse is a neighborhood bar from two dudes: one owns a Laurel Heights wine bar, and the other is an alum of Weston High School in Connecticut, a member of the Pete the Gambler Fantasy Football League, and clearly someone who doesn't understand Facebook's new privacy settings

    While not the largest draft list in the world, they're proving that size doesn't matter (right ladies? Right?!?) with some pretty great eclectic selections like Ommegang's Witte, Third Street Aleworks' Puddle Jumper Pale, or this Drake's IPA. The walls have art

    They also have an approachable selection of wine... blurrily pictured in the background of this delicious Black Robusto because, beer

    Also: try the housemade chips and horseradish sour cream-topped beef short-rib sliders, which're braised with a porter, but only after he takes your bags up to your room

    With a corner seat and full bay windows, you'll have a view of the entire street, but not the Noe Valley Town Square, no matter how much that second owner LIKEs it.

    Because you know the second version of things is always better (see: Victoria Beckham's second boob job), head to V2 Burger: A new Visitacion Valley patty joint that'll make looking up where Visitacion Valley is totally worth it. The menu's Super Duper-esque, with three two-pattied burger options (beef, chicken, and homemade veggie w/ lentil, rice, quinoa, beans, seasonal veggies), plus addable bacon, cheese, mushrooms, fried egg, and avocado, assuming you want to guac on the wild side. They also have three different types of non-African fries (classic, garlic, sweet potato)… …and one type of African Fries (wait, that's a thing?), which're covered in melted cheese, grilled onions, ketchup, and Tapatio-esque Berbere mayo -- probably not something you want to order if you want everyone calling you Posh.
