The Weekender

Absinthe Root Beer, Wine To-Go and The Lohan

The weekend is summoning summer.

Thursday
Half-Off Shirts from Jeremy Argyle
BRAND-NEW PERKS

Half-Off Shirts from Jeremy Argyle

This week, Perks has found you the perfect summer shirt, cut with just enough tail to be tucked, but not so much that you can’t wear the shirt untucked. It’s like having two shirts in one, and they’re half off. We’ll leave the rest of the math to you.

Rickhouse’s Summer Cocktails
SUMMER SCHOOL

Rickhouse’s Summer Cocktails

The cocktail scientists at Rickhouse have emerged from their lab with a new summer lineup, including the absinthe and root beer Big Dig and the dark blackberry and whiskey Berry O’Brien. They were crafted not so much to beat the heat, but the fog. Not that you really need an excuse.

Now available at Rickhouse, 246 Kearny St (at Bush), 415-398-2827

Friday
TechnoCraft Opening Party at YBCA
SMASHING

TechnoCraft Opening Party at YBCA

The time to indulge your desire to mix art, cocktails and demolition is now. Here (after a few gratis cocktails), you’ll get to contribute your own talent to selected works of art-in-the-making like the steel Do Hit Chair. Grab a hammer, smash the chair, and call it art. Apparently, the hammer’s the new paintbrush.

Saturday
Hapa Ramen Returns to Coffee Bar
HAPA DAYS

Hapa Ramen Returns to Coffee Bar

You might’ve heard or witnessed the mob scene at Hapa Ramen’s last pop-up at Coffee Bar, so you might be surprised to hear that they’re returning for a ramen-filled do-over. If you’re lucky, they’ll also have the Lindsay Lohan on the menu—which is their breaded pork sandwich that’s so good, it should be put behind bars.

Every Saturday in July, Coffee Bar, 1890 Bryant (at Mariposa), 415-551-8100

InnerFog Wine Bar Opens
FOG HORNS

InnerFog Wine Bar Opens

It’s good practice to have wine bars that you can call on in all parts of the city for impromptu quartinos and such. So you should know about this new Sunset spot—they’ve got couches and bar seats all over, but you can also buy a bottle and take it home. After all, impromptu bottles trump impromptu quartinos...

Monday
Expanded Nights at the Hideout
HAPPY HOURING

Expanded Nights at the Hideout

The backroom speakeasy that’s been hiding out at Dalva just added three more nights and a happy hour, including $5 cocktails like the Bourbon Mule and the rye/VT maple syrup Bleeding Tree. Given all this, they might need to find a new name.

Mon-Sat, happy hour 7-9pm, The Hideout at Dalva, 3121 16th St (at Valencia), 415-252-7740
