Fourth-Annual Speed Rack Tour

dm-image-ph Celebrate strong cocktails and strong women at the fourth-annual Speed Rack tour, gracing San Francisco with its presence this Sunday (buy tickets). A stellar roster of badass local lady bar stars will go head-to-head in timed heats making industry-approved drinks, all while raising money for breast cancer research. You, of course, will be sipping cocktails while watching the action and enjoying bites from La Cocina. 3/15, 4 to 8 p.m.; 161 Erie St.; $20 a person for advance tickets, $25 a person at the door

Opening of the Week

Jersey

Get a taste of the Shore at Jersey, a new SoMa pizzeria that opened on Tuesday. Jersey comes from Steven and Mitchell Rosenthal, the team behind neighborhood mainstays Town Hall, Salt House and Anchor & Hope. The two grew up on the East Coast and wanted a pizzeria that evoked the flavors and styles of their childhood. Still, the restaurant includes influences garnered from their travels to Italy and their home base in SF. In addition to three 14-inch "Jersey-style" pies, the menu features three California-style pizzas, a selection of pastas, seasonally inflected mains and sides, plus a selection of cured and smoked meats. Sample it all at lunch or dinner, accompanied by a nice selection of local beers and wines. We hear rumors of a foie gras pizza—all the more reason to pay your respects to Jersey. 145 Second St.; 415-912-1502

Get Out

Get your sandwich fix in the Design District at the newly opened Dusty Buns, the first San Francisco-based brick-and-mortar from the beloved food truck of the same name. Expect tasty sandwiches and burgers (all served on homemade soft buns), as well as soups, salads, vegetarian options and even beer and wine offerings to come in the future. 11 Division St.; 559-486-2867

The Pour

Thanks to Belcampo Meat Co., you can now indulge in the bone-broth trend and get a buzz. With the debut of its new cocktail menu today (which includes non-broth-centric cocktails), you can sample a Boney Mary ($12), laced with barley spirit, fresh tomato, "shotgun sauce" and horseradish, or a Bone Broth Toddy ($12), blended with amontillado sherry, Calabrian chile and sage. 1998 Polk St.; 415-660-5573

Food Crush

Prepare to feel lucky this St. Patrick's Day: 4505 Burgers & BBQ is finally opening its long-awaited late-night burger window. Debuting Friday, it will be open on Fridays and Saturdays and whenever any noteable events are going on—a concert at The Independent, for example. The Best Damn Cheeseburger ($8.75) will be on offer, along with tallow-crisped fries ($4), plus beer to go. 705 Divisadero St.; 415-231-6993
