BRAND-NEW PERKS

40% Off Your Next Shirt from Freemans

This week, Perks is bringing you 40% off shirts from Freemans. They feature a tab under the sleeve that can be fastened to a button placed strategically above the elbow—a little shirting know-how borrowed from Depression-era machinists—so feel free to roll up the sleeves. Because that magnum of champagne isn’t going to saber itself.

The Majesty of Sake Day
SAKE TO ME

The Majesty of Sake Day

October 1 is Nihonshu no Hi, or Sake Day in Japan. And if you won’t go to Sake Day, Sake Day will come to you: 100 sakes, blind taste tests, a giant menu of snacks from Nombe and an Okinawan band. Or at least it will come to the Japanese Cultural and Community Center.

Oktoberfest’s Last Hurrah

There’s no crying in Oktoberfest. Sure, it’s ending, and yes, you will miss it. But it will be back next year. And Suppenküche is throwing one more party to ease you out of the festivities. There will be beer, half chickens and wurst. Actually, that just sounds like your normal Tuesday.

Oct 2, noon-10pm, no cost, Suppenküche, 525 Laguna St (at Hayes), 415-252-9289

Sunday

Litquake Presents Words and Waves
SURFER SCRIBES

Litquake Presents Words and Waves

When you think surfers, eloquence and great penmanship generally aren’t the first two things that come to mind. Drop by this event and you’ll hear surf stories, set to the backdrop of the ocean, with happy hour cocktails. Cocktails have a way of changing opinions...

Oct 4, 6-9pm, $5-$10 donation, Words and Waves, 1000 Great Highway (at Ocean Beach)

Tuesday
The Glory of the Pig
LITTLE PIGGY

The Glory of the Pig

Starting October 5, Tuesday is now dedicated to perfecting the pig at Regalito: look for staples of Mexican markets like tacos de carnitas, tortas de puerco and gorditas, made with Niman Ranch slow-roasted hog. Tuesday needed this.

Tuesdays, Regalito, 3481 18th (at Valencia), 415-503-0650
