Wise Sons Jewish Delicatessen Passover Seder

Where: Coffee Bar, 1890 Bryant (at Mariposa), 551-8100

When: Mon., April 18, 6:30 p.m. (Tuesday seder is sold out)

Cost: $45, $65 with wine pairings

The rundown: If San Francisco can have pop-up ramen, pop-up pizza, and pop-up sushi, why not pop-up Passover? Monday night at Coffee Bar (Tuesday is already sold out), Wise Sons' Evan Bloom and Leo Beckerman are putting their own spin on the seder plate. They'll add a radicchio salad with shaved farm egg and vanilla pot de creme with macerated strawberries to the usual Passover fare (matzo ball soup, gefilte fish, brisket). Wise Sons' vaunted Hillel sandwich is on the menu, though built with house-made matzo and a charoset of organic diced apples, dried fruit, cinnamon, and sweet wine. Perhaps we'll see a seder truck for Passover 2012?

  • Phish at the Bill Graham Auditorium
    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
