Brand-New Perks

This week, Perks brings you to the seat of truthiness with two exclusive VIP tickets to a taping of The Colbert Report. If you were looking for an excuse to buy a pet eagle, this is it.

Friday
Meet Your Maker Pop-Up
GEARING UP

Meet Your Maker Pop-Up

As the name implies, this weekend-long pop-up is your chance to meet the brains behind your favorite jeans, button-downs, reversible bow ties, watches and shoes crafted from as close as SF to all the way out in Brooklyn, LA and Portland. Gratis beer, wine and apps will be on hand as you shop—here's hoping this trend catches on.

Jun 11-13, times vary, Ohio Design, 630 Treat Ave (at 19th)

A Night of Japanese "Pink Cinema"
TOKYO STORIES

A Night of Japanese "Pink Cinema"

As a fair-minded connoisseur of the arts, you try to keep on top of all sorts of artistic endeavors. So you may be interested in a scholarly, academic look at the history of Japanese soft-core nudie flicks, including kinky geishas, female yakuza bosses and something called "Roman porno." Ah, culture...

Playboy Club's 50th Anniversary
MATING SEASON

Playboy Club's 50th Anniversary

The silver anniversary of the original Playboy Club in Chicago is worth a party in SF in our mind. Join Playmate Michelle McLaughlin at Infusion Lounge to kick off the festivities, which include a Bunny search competition throughout the night. Also known as a normal Friday night.

Jun 11, 10pm-2am, Infusion Lounge, 124 Ellis St (at Powell), 415-421-8700

Saturday
World Naked Bike Ride SF
IN THE BUFF

World Naked Bike Ride SF

Consider this fair warning for when you see a bunch of naked bikers pedaling from the Embarcadero to Golden Gate Park and back. Dubbed "Critical Ass," they're demonstrating against pollution in what looks sort of like the Bay to Breakers for the bicycling set. Ah, San Francisco...

Jun 12, noon-5pm, Justin Herman Plaza, 1 Market St, 415-564-9400

Hundreds of Wines for You
GOLD DIGGER

Hundreds of Wines for You

For four hours straight, you can weave around Fort Mason's massive pavilion, alternating from food station (nearly 40 of them, including Delfina, Il Cane Rosso and A16) to wine station (pouring about 200 wines from France, Italy and California) and back. Not that anyone's counting.
