1,000 Pounds of Crawfish, Coffee Beer and Jeans

The weekend waits for no one.

Your Beer, Now with Coffee
STRANGE BREW

Your Beer, Now with Coffee

Finally, your happy hour drink has merged with your morning pick-me-up—after five years of roasting coffee, the guys at Ritual have paired with the guys at Speakeasy to transform their coffee into a highly caffeinated version of Speakeasy's Payback Porter. Sample the results tonight, and see if you still have jitters in the morning.

JEANS, WILDER

Martinis and Custom Denim at 440 Brannan

Martinis. Jeans. That pretty much sums this up, but just in case: IndiDenim—the online jeans-by-appointment service—is launching a new brick-and-mortar service, and they're celebrating by handing out cocktails. And all is right with the world...

Saturday
All-You-Can-Eat Yats' Crawfish Boil
GONE FISHING

All-You-Can-Eat Yats' Crawfish Boil

Some weekends, a trip to N'awlins is in order. Some weekends, it comes to you. This is one of the latter: in addition to 1,000 pounds of Louisiana's beloved crawfish, you'll find Abita beer, shrimp po'boys and crawfish pasta. They'll have three-pound to-go bags on hand, but something tells us you won't be needing them.

May 15, 1-6pm, $25, San Pablo Arts District, 1097 53rd St, Oakland, 504-231-8612

Late-Night Party at Academy of Sciences
WEIRD SCIENCE

Late-Night Party at Academy of Sciences

Between taking in Spike Jonze's new documentary (about the guy who wrote Where the Wild Things Are) and asking Sandra Bernhard to tell you jokes, you should find plenty to keep you busy at this celebration of the Jewish holiday Shavuot. If not, the cocktails should more than make up for it.

May 15, 7:30pm-midnight, $20, California Academy of Sciences, 55 Music Concourse Dr, 877-435-9849, tickets here

Wednesday
Farmers' Market Cocktail Hour
SPRING FEVER

Farmers' Market Cocktail Hour

Roll up to the CUESA kitchen, where 10 bartenders from 15 Romolo and Triple Crown will be mixing their typically excellent cocktails. They'll be using handpicked fruit, herbs and veggies fresh from the market. You, however, will be responsible for bringing your own farmer's daughter.

May 19, 5:30-7:30pm, $30, CUESA Kitchen, Ferry Building, tickets here
