The Weekender

Margarita Happy Hour, Pixar and a Lot of Rum

The weekend holds no animosity toward the week.

Thursday
Half Off Your Next Pair of Designer Jeans
BRAND-NEW PERKS

Half Off Your Next Pair of Designer Jeans

This week, Perks is taking half off your next pair of cult selvage denim jeans, fresh from the laboratory: the Denim Design Lab. It’s modern-day jean science, with a dash of old-timey alchemy. A little jean alchemy goes a long way.

Peruvian Independence Week at La Mar
MISS INDEPENDENT

Peruvian Independence Week at La Mar

The proper respect should be paid to a country’s national drink, especially when that nation is celebrating its birthday (Peru’s was technically yesterday). And by respect, we mean raising a glass of $5 pisco sours, pisco punch or chilcano de pisco all week. And maybe eating some guinea pig...

Saturday
25 Years of Pixar at Oakland Museum
THE DRAWING BOARD

25 Years of Pixar at Oakland Museum

Pixar’s had a pretty good run—Toy Story, Wall-E, Toy Story 2, Toy Story 3... See how they pulled it off at the new exhibit with more than 500 of their storyboards, graphics and notoriously hilarious short films. And we promise not to tell anyone you cried during Up.

Drink the British Royal Navy’s Rum
RUM RUNNERS

Drink the British Royal Navy’s Rum

You have a few rules in this life, one of them being “no one rations your booze.” So you’ll be in good company at Smuggler’s Cove, where you’ll get your share of the largest collection of authentic British Royal Navy rums from back when sailors had their daily “tot.” In other words, it’s time to pack 40 years’ worth of rum rations into two hours.

Monday
Margarita Happy Hour at Mijita
HAPPY HOURING

Margarita Happy Hour at Mijita

You usually go to the Ferry Building for farmers’ market goodies, not tequila. But you’re willing to expand your mind, and to help you, the good people of Mijita are dishing out $5 margaritas on the rocks with endless chips and salsa—but you might have to bring your own farmer’s daughter.

Mon-Fri starting Aug 2, 5-7pm, Mijita, Ferry Building Marketplace, 415-399-0814

Wednesday
Pre-Ordering Namu’s Market Lunch
TACO THURSDAYS

Pre-Ordering Namu’s Market Lunch

If the epic lines have stopped you from indulging in Namu’s Korean tacos with kalbi short ribs and kimchee salsa, then you’ll like their new loophole: pre-order. There’s a minimum, but you’ll probably be more concerned with the maximum.

Order Wednesday by noon for Thursday pickup (minimum $75 purchase), fax 415-666-3553, phone 415-386-8332 or email here
