Things to do for August 26, 2010

The Weekender

Pork Belly Doughnuts, Gratis Beer and Bocce Ball

The weekend is having seconds.

Thursday
Designer Neckwear from Britain, Half Off
BRAND-NEW PERKS

Designer Neckwear from Britain, Half Off

This week, Perks is bringing you cutting-edge designer ties from Motto and Crest, for half off. Hailing from across the pond, these ties are manufactured in the English tradition, combining classic menswear fabrics (like tweed) with dashes of more unconventional ones (like leather). Take note: a tweed-and-leather suit is still not a good idea.

Rare Vampire Films at YBCA
BITE CLUB

Rare Vampire Films at YBCA

Consider this a reeducation in vampire flicks: vintage movies from as far back as the ’30s (including Kathryn Bigelow’s pre-Hurt Locker vampire/biker/western flick tonight), and especially this one that screens tomorrow: Vampire Hookers—88 minutes’ worth of vampire pimps and bloodsucking vixens. Some things never get old.

Friday
Pork Belly Doughnuts at the Sycamore
HOLE IN ONE

Pork Belly Doughnuts at the Sycamore

Start with chunks of beer-braised pork belly. Whisk into a doughnut/beer batter. Top with a bourbon-maple syrup glaze. Six holes make up an order. Whether you get it with a beer, a bourbon or a coffee (or all three) is up to you.

Available daily, 11:30am-midnight, The Sycamore, 2140 Mission St (at 17th), 415-252-7704

Fly-Fishing, Leather Jackets and Beer
SALE-ING

Fly-Fishing, Leather Jackets and Beer

In the span of two hours, you’ll have the opportunity to partake in gratis beer, get schooled in fly-fishing and check out genuine vintage riding jackets from the ’30s to the ’50s. Lots of moto memorabilia will be mixed in with Candystore’s lineup of labels from Dunderdon, YMC and Hyden Yoo—all at 30% off. Think of it as happy hour on steroids.

Saturday
BBQ and Bocce at Rubicon Estate
ON ’CUE

BBQ and Bocce at Rubicon Estate

If an afternoon of bocce and cabernet on the lawn of a Rutherford estate is already sounding good, you’ll also like that it’s at one of the oldest, most pedigreed wineries in California history. And it belongs to Francis Ford Coppola. So just think of this as an invite from Francis himself.

Aug 28, noon-4pm, $65, Rubicon Estate, 1991 St Helena Highway, Rutherford, 707-968-1156

Late-Night Foie-BLT at Lafitte
THE LATE SHOW

Late-Night Foie-BLT at Lafitte

Come midnight, your palate is probably not in top form. Here to help you avoid having to compromise: Lafitte’s F-BLT, a monster stack of the usual BLT suspects but with added foie gras and acorn-fed Iberico bacon. (After all, eating acorns is one thing, but eating pigs who ate acorns is a whole different beast.)

Saturdays, 11pm-2am, Lafitte, Pier 5, The Embarcadero, 415-986-4806
